When we are all considering that our real world might turn post-apocalyptic soon, Bandai Namco is out to hit us with a new sci-fi apocalyptic series, Scarlet Nexus.
Scarlet Nexus is the latest entry in the sci-fi futuristic anime genre, which hasn’t seen much love in the past few years. However, Bandai Namco is here to set things right by releasing an anime and a game on all major platforms!
According to the official sources, the Scarlet Nexus anime series is set to air from 1st July 2021, which will be simulcast across the world through Funimation.
To celebrate the recent development of the Scarlet Nexus series, the studio has released a teaser trailer to hype up interest among fans!
The teaser trailer showcases the central power of the characters, that is, the psychokinesis. The dual protagonists of the series, Randall Kasane and Sumeragi Yuito, are also in the limelight.
The story takes place in the solar calendar 2020 (yikes!), where the grotesque creatures called Others have started eating people. To protect humanity, the OSF is formed with humans that can use psychokinesis and other super brain powers.
