Details about the upcoming online event for the anime The World Ends with You will be revealed on March 1, 2021, according to the official Twitter account for the show.
The event was first mentioned on February 5, 2021, in a tweet from the same account. It said that the event would be for fans worldwide, and that there would be an art exhibition and a preview of the first episode of The World Ends With You: The Animation. We have already seen a “rap version” of the show’s opening scene, featuring the song “TEENAGE CITY RIOT,” by ALI and the Creepy Nuts rapper, R-Shitei.
It was also possible to watch part of the first episode when it aired in Japan on 18 September 2020. This was the start of a special event called The 7 Days Campaign that was hosted on the official Twitter account. It is unclear how much of what will be shown in the upcoming event will be new, never-before-seen material.
The anime is based on Square Enix’s Nintendo DS game, The World Ends with You. Shin-Ei is producing the animation, the same studio behind Doraemon and a newer studio that did some 3D elements in Evangelion: 3.0. As with the game, Tetsuya Nomura will provide the character designs. The game’s composer, Takeharu Ishimoto, will also contribute.
The world ends with you: The Animation is expected to air in Japan sometime in April 2021. The World Ends with You is available immediately for the Nintendo DS, as is its Nintendo Switch port, The World Ends with You: Final Mix.
