Bandai Namco’s “Brain Punk” RPG, Scarlet Nexus, isn’t just an animated video game (the one we love here at AOTF), it has an animated series adaptation in the works. This means that you can spend more time with Yuito and Kasane on two different mediums.
There’s never a bad time to start another anime, right? This is especially true for those who have completed the first season and the first Demon Slayer film, looking to fill the void until the end of the year. But let’s stay focused here. Read on for the synopsis of the Scarlet Nexus anime:
Solar calendar year 2020: Grotesque organisms called Others have started to eat people. To defeat this new enemy, the other suppressing force is formed. Saved by this elite team as a child, the psychokinetic Yuito resists training to enlist. On the other hand, prodigy Kasane has been spotted for her abilities. But Kasane’s dreams tell him strange things, leading the two to an inevitable fate.
