That article implies that most of the action will be focused in Okinawa via the Iran comment which screams Star Driver over again. This just seems like a complete mess.
Well the way I see it you have two options. You can watch and see what their explanation is and decide if its satisfactory or total retconning BS or you can just never give it a chance and presume that its a total failure. I guarantee that the former approach will get you taken more seriously but that the latter will probably serve your personal interest better.

Though what does any of what was mentioned in that article have to do with star driver besides the setting? Star drivers problem wasn't that it took place on an island it was that almost every plotline it tried to start never went anywhere and that there was next to no continuity between episodes despite it ostensibly being a serial and not episodic.
