SuperGroupies reveals The World Ends With You merch

The World Ends With You is having a real resurgence lately. Fans begged for more of the franchise for years, which lead to mobile ports of the original game, and then a Switch revamp. That was followed by the announcement and reveal of The World Ends With You: The Animation, an anime slated for 2021. Now we have even more TWEWY goodness with a new merch line from SuperGroupies.

SuperGroupies has revealed a line of The World Ends With You merch that includes multiple variations on backpacks, watches, and wallets. You can preorder the items now, with bags and wallets due to ship out in Nov. 2020, and watches sometime in Dec. 2020. Check out the various designs here.

The Worlds Ends with You: The Animation set to stream via Funimation

Your home for the anime series

The Worlds Ends with You: The Animation isn't going to release until 2021, so we have some time to wait for the debut. When that debut does come along, it's going to be a worldwide affair, and Funimation has let everyone know that they'll be the place offering the streaming version of the show. The company will also be sharing new details about the anime as time rolls on, so look forward to that.

Character art released for The World Ends With You: The Animation

Getting into characters

Last night, we got to see the debut trailer for The World Ends With You: The Animation, a 3DCG anime that will see worldwide release in 2021. That's quite a way's off, but at least we have some more content to look at right now.

The official website for The World Ends With You: The Animation has added character profiles for the series, which gives us some character art to enjoy. Take a look at the various character profiles here.

The World Ends With You: The Animation launches worldwide in 2021 and will be 3DCG, debut trailer shared

The world ends in 2021

Anime Expo Lite kicked off with the reveal of The World Ends With You: The Animation, which was announced for worldwide release in 2021. Domerica is working on the project, and they've revealed that it's a 3DCG project, rather than just straightforward 2D animation. It was also mentioned that Takeharu Ishimoto, composer on The World Ends With You, is handling the music for the anime. Along with that, Tetsuya Norma will be involved as well. You can check out the official synopsis below.

Make your way through “Shibuya” and survive the seven-day “Reaper’s Game”!

The main character Neku wakes up in the middle of a busy Shibuya Crossing Intersection unaware of how he got there.
He’s in an alternate plane of existence called the Underground (UG).

Unknowingly forced to participate in the “Reaper’s Game”, Neku must partner with Shiki, a teenage girl player whom he meets.

Neku must fight to survive by completing the missions thrown at him and defeating the creatures called “Noise.” By doing so, he will confront the “Reaper’s Game” along with the truth buried deep inside his memory.

“The only way to survive is to trust your partner”

Will they survive the “Reaper’s Game”…?

Anime Expo Lite promo art features The World Ends With You, fueling speculation of the series' return

Are we finally going to get a true sequel?

While Anime Expo 2020 was cancelled due to the pandemic, The Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation has announced Anime Expo Lite, a two-day live-stream event taking place July 3rd and 4th, 2020. The official promo art for the event can be seen above, and it features The World Ends With You.

No explanation of the art has been shared, but it is indeed an official collaboration with Square-Enix. It would be extremely odd to feature the series in promo art if special news wasn't coming. Be it an anime adaptation, new game, or something else completely, it does seem like The World Ends With You fans will have something new to look forward to in the near future.
