We finally got the official release date, a brand new poster, and a new trailer for The World Ends with You anime! TWEWY anime is an adaptation of the popular video game that was released on the DS in 2007. The game was developed by Square Enix, written by Sachie Hirano, and designed by Tetsuya Nomura. The anime will be released on April 9th of this year!
Here’s the synopsis:
Race through the streets of Shibuya and survive the seven-day Reapers’ Game!
Neku awakens in the middle of Shibuya’s bustling Scramble Crossing with no memory of how he got there. Little does he know he’s been transported to an alternate plane of existence known as the Underground (UG). Now an unwilling participant in the mysterious “Reapers’ Game,” Neku must partner up with a girl named Shiki in order to survive. Together, they complete missions and defeat monsters known as “Noise” as they gradually uncover the true nature of this twisted Game.
“There’s only one way to stay alive in Shibuya: trust your partner.” Will they survive the Reapers’ Game?
