The animation studio CloverWorks unveiled a new original TV anime series titled Tokyo Twenty Fourth Ward that will debut in January 2022. A teaser visual, PV, staff and main cast are also revealed.
The first four JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime seasons director Naokatsu Tsuda is directing the series. Vio Shimokura of Nitroplus is writing and overseeing the series scripts. The illustrator group FiFS (made up of Persona 3 & 4 manga artist Shuji Sogabe and Kanako Nono) is credited as the original character design.
The original anime is set on an artificial island floating in Tokyo Bay, an outlaw place known as the “24th Ward.” Ran, Koki, and Shuta are childhood friends born and raised on the island, but one tragic incident dragged them apart.
At a memorial ceremony one year after the incident, the three happen to meet again, and all of their phones start to ring at once. The phone call is from a friend they thought was dead, urging them to “choose the future.” Though each young man has their own believes, they have a common goal to protect the future of their hometown.
