Scarlet Nexus has generated a global gaming interest since the announcement of the game development in May of 2020. Anime and gaming fans worldwide have dived in to cosplay and character reveals over the last year in anticipation for the Bandai Namco Entertainment RPG. Now, they can experience the striking new series animated by Sunrise (Mobile Suit Gundam, Cowboy Bebop).
Funimation will bring this new universe to fans worldwide, making the anime series available in simulcast on its service in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, United Kingdom, and Ireland; on Wakanim in France, Germany, Russia and in the Nordics; and on Animelab in Australia and New Zealand.
Synopsis: 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.
- Yuito Sumeragi. After the OSF saved Yuito as a child, he began to admire them, dreaming of joining their ranks. For the next few years, he worked hard and eventually voluntarily enlisted, despite not being scouted. Yuito was born into an elite family with direct lineage to the founding father of New Himuka, Yakumo Sumeragi. He’s strong and kind and possesses psychokinesis or the ability to move objects with his mind.
- Kasane Randall. Adopted by the prestigious Randall family, Kasane was scouted and joined the Other Suppression Force Training School, graduating top of her class. Though they are not blood-related, she has a very strong love and sense of attachment for her older sister Naomi. Kasane is cool and rational, but sometimes misunderstands things. Her power is psychokinesis.
