First look to The World Ends With You: The Animation
SQUARE ENIX revealed a first glimpse of The World Ends With You: The Animation (Subarashiki Kono Sekai The Animation), the anime series based on their popular RPG video games.
Anime Expo Lite announced this project at the end of May. Current production is made at Domerica / Shin-Ei Animation with plan for 2021 worldwide debut.
Animation director is Kazuya Ichikawa, screewriting by Midori Goto and character design by Tetsuya Nomura/Gen Kobayashi (designers from the games), with music by Takeharu Ishimoto (composer for the game).
This is a sinopsis of The World Ends With You video game:
Complete the mission…or face erasure. That’s all Neku knows after regaining consciousness in the middle of a busy intersection without his memories. Now he and his partner must fight to survive a life-or-death game in this twisted tale with more turns than the urban labyrinth of Tokyo they’re trapped in.[…] In the crowded chaos of Tokyo, players of the Reapers’ Game must complete daily missions or face total erasure. Neku might not be enthusiastic about forging relationships, but with his very life on the line, he’ll need to learn how to work together with a partner—and fast: they only have seven days.
