Get ready for some action and drama in January 2018 upon the release of the new anime series Beatless. This anime revolves around the co-existence of humans and new AI beings with extreme intelligence. When one of these AIs, Lacia, meets a teenage boy, romance, mystery, and action aren't far behind.

These artificial intelligence creations start appearing with technology far surpassing mankind's intelligence, so maybe the most important question is: "What are they doing here?"

Diomedéa is the studio behind this anime which blends the drama, action, romance, and sci-fi genres.
