Today, the highly anticipated anime series Night Head 2041 received a new key visual and a trailer.
If you aren’t familiar with the series, Night Head was originally a popular 1990s science fiction drama. It was announced a short while back that the series was going to be getting a reboot in the form of a manga, stage play, and anime. The staff had the following to say about the upcoming adaptation:
The shocking story Night Head, which was made into a TV drama in 1992, captured the hearts of many people and became a cult favorite. The story of Naoto and Naoya Kirihara, two brothers who suffer because of their supernatural powers, attracted not only science fiction fans but also many other fans.
Now, 30 years later, the story has been revived as an original TV animation Night Head 2041 written by Joji Iida, who also directed the TV drama. In addition to the Kirihara brothers, who also appeared in the TV drama version, another pair of brothers, the Kuroki brothers, who are hunting down the Kirihara brothers, will also appear in this new Night Head story.
