Tokyo 24-ku is an upcoming original anime by CloverWorks which takes place on an artificial island floating in Tokyo Bay known as “Kyokutō Hōreigai Tokubetsu Chiku” (Far East Special District Outside of the Law), or the 24th Ward.
The story is about three friends from different parts of society born and raised on the island. A certain incident separates them, only for them to meet a year later where a dead friend urges them to choose their futures.
The official website for CloverWorks original anime Tokyo 24-ku has released a promotional video. The anime will debut in January 2022.
The PV features glimpses of the 24th Ward, which seems to have been abandoned for some reason, along with introductions for the three main characters: Ran, Koki, and Shouta.
The Twitter account for the Tokyo 24-ku project has released a visual for the upcoming anime.

The visual features the three main characters from the anime sitting in what looks like a classroom in crazy colors. The character’s designs follow the color themes present in their names: Red as in Akagi, Blue in Aoi, and Green in Suido, which means water and soil.
These characters will be voiced by:
|Ran Akagi||Yūma Uchida||Megumi Fushiguro (Jujutsu Kaisen)|
|Koki Suido||Kaito Ishikawa||Tobio Kageyama (Haikyu!!)|
|Shouta Aoi||Junya Enoki||Pannacotta Fugo (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind)|
CloverWorks has also revealed the main staff for the anime’s production.

Although we do not have any exact details about the plot, this seems to be a mystery-thriller. As a CloverWorks original, it is going to look gorgeous as always; let’s just hope they keep it on schedule this time.
