The World Ends With You anime artwork is gorgeous, series looks like a helluva lot of fun — watch the trailer

The upcoming urban fantasy The World Ends With You The Animation got a new trailer today, and it is looking very much like the artwork in the anime series is very similar to the artwork in the action RPG the anime is based on.

No complaints on my part then, as one of the things I love about the The World Ends With You game is how gorgeous the graphics are and how much the artwork just pops on your screen as you play.



Along with the new trailer, Square Enix also released a key visual with the same vibrant graphics, and a release date of April 9th for the premiere of the anime.

The trailer also features the opening theme song — ALI’s ‘Teenage City Riot’ feat. R-Shitei’, which is as high-energy and wild as you might expect.

The anime is being animated by Shin-Ei Animation (The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me?).

It is directed by Kazuya Ichikawa (Aoyama kun) and stars Kouki Uchiyama (The Ancient Magus’ Bride), Anna Hachimine, Subaru Kimura (Assassination Classroom), Ayana Taketatsu (Sword Art Online) and Ryohei Kimura (Natsume’s Book of Friends).

The anime will premiere on April 9th in Japan on MBS and TBS, and will stream in the west on the same date via Funimation.
