The Winter 2021 anime season is upon us, bringing new, exciting series to check out. Tokyo 24th Ward is one of those titles the description of which will likely intrigue you - although some would argue that 3 anime in one season is far too much for CloverWorks. We still remember the delays and messy ending of Wonder Egg Priority, and the disappointment of The Promised Neverland Season 2.
Nevertheless, the trailer of Tokyo 24th Ward does look promising, and many anime lovers will be excited to at least give it a go.
Below, you will find everything you need to know about the new CloverWolks project, including the release date and time of the premiere, where to watch, and everything else you need to know about Tokyo 24th Ward or Tokyo 24-ku!
Tokyo 24th Ward Anime: What Is It About?
Tokyo 24th Ward or Tokyo 24-ku is an original sci-fi anime by Studio CloverWorks. The story unfolds on an artificial island in Tokyo Bay, where childhood friends Ran, Kouki and Shuuta navigate a drastic change in their relationship after a life-altering incident.
When the three friends meet again one year later, they are shocked to find that their phones ring simultaneously. To make things more horrifying, the caller is a supposedly dead friend who advises them to "choose the future." Judging from the posters and promotions, we expect these words to haunt the narrative. Will time-traveling be involved at all? As this is an original anime, there's little we can tell you, but stay tuned, as we get to start following the three friends who try to save their home in less than 24 hours!
