The Japanese television broadcaster Fuji TV announced today that it is currently producing a new anime series entitled Night Head 2041. A first teaser video and a visual can be found below in the article.
Night Head 2041 Release Date July 2021
“Night Head 2041” is based on an idea by George Iida, who wrote it between 1992 and 1993 as a live-action series under the title “Night Head” and in 2006 as a 24-part anime series entitled “Night Head Genesis” brought to Japanese television.
The new anime is being produced under the direction of Takamitsu Hirakawa (CG director for “Etotama”) in the Shirogumi studio. Original author Iida writes the script and does the series composition, while Mangaka Oh! Great (“Tenjou Tenge”) contributed the character design. Yutaka Yamada (“Great Pretender”, “Vinland Saga”) composes the music.
The series starts in July 2021 in the “+ Ultra” program block on Fuji TV. The focus of the story are the two brothers Naoto and Naoya Kirihara, who are suffering from their supernatural powers. Compared to the live-action series and the old anime, more main characters are added to “Night Head 2041”.
The brothers Naoto and Naoya Kirihara are persecuted by the world because of their supernatural powers. Brothers Takuya and Yuya Kuroki go after people with supernatural abilities as part of the National Security Forces.
