I Am Your Father!, Outbreak Company) provided character designs for the project, while the team of Jun Kumagai, Mariko Mochizuki, and Yuniko Ayana wrote the scripts.

Aquarion Logos will hit Blu-ray and DVD on November 22. Funimation describes the show as:

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Aquarion is back with a brand-new series featuring a whole new cast of wild characters on a one-of-a-kind adventure!

Long ago, the human voice defined the true nature of everything. That is, until text came along and opened up the Logos World, a futuristic battlefield where monsters loom. These monsters, known as M.J.B.K., are spawned from texts injected with the magical syringe of Master Sougon, the mysterious gatekeeper of all written word. When these texts are injected, their concept on Earth is erased, and an M.J.B.K. is born in the Logos World. Lucky for humanity, there are a group of young-gun heroes known as the Verbalism Club who counter the text monsters with their Aquarion vectors and the art of voice. It’s up to self-proclaimed savior Akira Kaibuki and the rest of the Verbalism Club to protect the world from being erased as long as their silly antics don’t get in the way.

"Akira was one of my favorite things I ever saw. My friend Mike, he was an illustrator in the same course as me, he introduced me to it. It was mind-blowing. Anything with movement like that, I was like 'This is insane.'"
