In the year 2041, World War III has wiped out two-thirds of the human population, and in the newfound structure, the belief in any god or beyond-human entity is considered a preposterous notion. In order to prevent citizens from bearing possibly incriminating thoughts, the government has assembled a Special Weapon Enforcement division to capture and rehabilitate such believers.

The Kirihara brothers, Naoya and Naoto—who were hidden away from society by their captors for years to conceal their psychic abilities—were promised freedom once the world was ready to face their existence. Now, wandering in the appalling new societal climate where psychics are not welcome, the brothers find themselves on the run from the Enforcement's devoted operatives, Yuuya and Takuya Kuroki.

Night Head 2041 (2021)

What a show, inspired me to watch the original show now.

Things of note:

Episode 4 has a real nice siren sound use that really makes you feel the effect of the emergency.

The OST is spectacular especially the piece Sacrifice. Has the real classical emphasis on it.

Mixed Feelings
As a whole, I feel like this anime is underrated. It gives a good message of people having roles in life and how it can influence those around them. Though, it does have its weak points.

I feel like this anime was mainly showing off the capabilities that 3D animation could do; the animation was clearly the show’s strongest suit. The animation quality amazing and it’s such a shame that people look down on this anime because of its animation. I feel like it’s really the best 3D anime so far.

The anime’s weakest aspect is the story. There were many instances where the story was confusing ...

I expected another Ex-arm
Instead I got Akira that was just way too much on the nose.
(And worse in every other aspect as well)

At first I thought it would be a political story considering the genre, but then it suprised me when the show started inclining towards more religious route. In the second half it went back and connected it with the political aspect.

Don't get me wrong. In it's core the idea is decent enough to follow and expand upon. The problem lies with its terrible execution and abysmal handling of its own characters. If you can even call them that.

Show started in ...
