Bandai Namco’s “Brain Punk” RPG, Scarlet Nexus, is not only an anime video game (one we here at AOTF loved), it has an anime series adaptation in the works. That means you can enjoy more time with Yuito and Kasane across two different mediums.
There’s never a bad time to start another anime, right? That is especially true for those that have finished Demon Slayer’s first season and movie, looking to fill the void until later this 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 begun eating people. To take down this new enemy, the Other Suppression Force is formed. Saved by this elite team as a child, psychokinetic Yuito withstands the training to enlist. On the other hand, prodigy Kasane was scouted for her abilities. But Kasane’s dreams tell her strange things, dragging the two into an unavoidable fate.
