Geek Native first looked at Tokyo 24th Ward because of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure overlap with the director. According to the synopsis, it was sci-fi then, with the action on an artificial island, but the latest trailer ramps up the tech.
In fact, the latest trailer seems to do a flip halfway through with a pivot of tones from buddy slice of life to dramatic hi-tech drama.
We also know the anime is coming to Crunchyroll. Tokyo 24th Ward is in the Winter 2022 lineup. It’ll be simulcast as well, so as Japan gets the series, the regions where Crunchyroll has the license get it too.
Here’s how the anime streaming platform describe the drama;
The Far Eastern Special Administrative Region, also known as the 24th Ward, is a man-made island that sits in Tokyo Bay. Shuta, Ran, and Koki were born and raised on the island. Their family backgrounds, preferences, and personalities are completely different, but they are childhood friends who have always stuck together. However, one incident changed their relationship forever. A year afterward, the three friends are reunited by chance at a memorial service held for the incident. All three of their phones suddenly ring simultaneously. Their friend, who is supposed to be dead, is calling and demands that they make a decision about the future. The three friends do what they believe is best to protect the 24th Ward and its inhabitants.
