Based on the Synduality sci-fi multimedia project by Bandai Namco, the anime adaption is officially titled Synduality Noir and is set to debut worldwide on Disney+ in July 2023. The anime also revealed the first main trailer previewing the characters’ voices and opening song “RAYTRACER” by Stereo Dive Foundation.
With the concept of “the difference between humans and Artificial Intelligence,” the project also includes a PS5 game titled Synduality Echo of Ada that is set to release in 2023. The project is set years after the attack of Tears of the New Moon, a mysterious rain poured and wiped out almost the entire human race. The poisonous rain gave birth to deformed creatures devouring humans, and humanity fled from the danger.
As means of survival, the humans then build an underground haven; Amasia. In this newly built dystopian city, in pursuit of maintaining their existence, they run into an Artificial Intelligence named Magus. Not knowing how things will work between them, the story of how Humans and AI coincide and try to find their truths begin.
The anime’s story will set 20 years after the game’s story and will follow the journey of Kanata, an apprentice who aims to become a professional “Drifter” who fight the creatures with a mecha suit.
The project is also getting a spinoff manga adaptation, Synduality Ellie, which will start serialization at Monthly Comic Alive. A light novel adpatation by MF Bungo J is also confirmed.
