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.

The show also doesn't have too many 'ahhhhhh' scenes.

The story at first I was unsure about but it definitely has become spectacular by the end especially with coming full circle. You get some unexpected situations during the show that really push you back into your chair.

The art for this show is brilliant. read more

The story is really different, also very interesting. It is noticeable the anime is associated with the bible, what you can realize at some point. But with some other elements not exactly relationeted with it.

Such an underrated series I must to say. The plot is kind of complex,
in the beginning you probably won't expect for it. I have the feeling there much is more than I noticed, and it makes me excited.


I don't have complaints about them. They are nice people. (some of them, to be honest). Something that makes me satisfied is the fact the characters have roles in the world. read more

Night Head 2041 is one of the single worst sci-fi anime I have ever seen, ineptly blending an utter failure to comprehend its own subjects and themes with stolen worldbuilding elements from other, better dystopian and sci-fi fiction, like 1984, Akira, and more. There are countless other far superior similar sci-fi stories in anime and manga, please do not bother with this one.

Let's start with the "good":

The character designs are for the most part relatively tame, except for Hikasa Youko's character, who actually looks excellent, and Michio Sonezaki, whose face even a mother couldn’t love. The OP and ED are both solid, and the soundtrack read more

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.
