Scarlet Nexus Anime Series Releasing This Summer (VIDEO)
Bandai Namco’s Code Vein was an anime souls-like released in 2019 that, while enjoyable, didn’t seem to get enough love from the publisher in order to elevate the title’s overall popularity and reception. Bandai Namco appears willing to learn from its past mistakes with its upcoming spiritual successor, Scarlet Nexus, with the company now announcing that the game will be getting its own anime series releasing later this year.
A Scarlet Nexus anime series was announced as a collaboration between Bandai Namco and animation studio Sunrise. For those unaware, Sunrise is behind popular anime series such as Mobile Suit Gundam and Cowboy Bebop, so if there’s a studio to trust with the collaboration, it’s this one. Revealed by Funimation, the anime series will debut this summer on the streaming platform.
Psychokinetics Yuito and Kasane are ready to defend the world from the Others.
But Kasane’s mysterious dreams are about to drag the pair into an unavoidable fate. 😱
Based on the upcoming game, the Scarlet Nexus anime heads to Funimation this summer!

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.”
