Night World, a short anime series, has been soaring since its first episode was released on 16th April.
The short story is set in an aesthetically stunning world where a wise owl named Yoru helps others embrace happiness and let go of suffering. The anime also features singer Aimer, known for her theme songs in Fate/Stay Night, Fire force, and Vinland saga!

Recently, Aimer’s official website released a trailer for the second Night World episode that is set to release on 4th June 2021. Additionally, Aimer’s new song “Gracenote” has been selected as the theme song.

Aimer’s new song titled “Trill” from her full album “Walpurgis” was the first episode’s theme song. Walpurgis’s name comes from a Christian feast called “Walpurgis’ Night”, celebrated in April to ward off evil spirits.
The anime and the songs took visual and thematic inspiration from the festival regarding the theme of the night, stars, and guiding light.
The Night world anime is directed by Ryotimo (Ryosuke Sawa) with Studio Daisy. However, interestingly, Ryotimo did the entire animation on the popular CG platform Blender, which is uncommon in the Japanese anime industry where most of the animation is still done on paper.
