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.

Now look i get it. CGI in anime is more like a double edged sword. On one hand you can create a really good looking fight scene, or make a scene pop out and make it breathtaking. On the other if you entirely use CGI in a 12 or 24 episodic series you can end up with varied results. Night Head 2041 is one of those series that does end up using CGI in a well used and ok'ish way.

Action and fight scenes are well played and bring out a lot of visualization to what's going on, characters are really well made and actually make read more

I write this review for people like myself, who rarely write reviews, and use it as a way to determine if something is worth their time.

There is no reason for this to be an average of 6.5. The story, art, music, is all above a 7.

The dystopian theme is well done so far 5 episodes in. Do give this a watch. It will be an enjoyable one if you like the theme.

We have the characters both semi-interesting. They mention the world wars, and anticipate the story to move in a direction where freedoms must be fought for.

I liked it so far.

I understand that a lot of people are going to be avoiding this anime due to the CGI animation, and I thought that as well until I saw one person say that they liked what they watched a lot more than they expected to. I decided to give it a shot and I too was pleasantly surprised.

It's still early on in the series but so far I am definitely hooked. The CGI can be a little jarring if you're not used to it, but if you can get over that and concentrate on the story and characters you might just be in for a great read more

This is a Cyber-punk anime like Akudama Drive, Night Head 2041 i loved it!
A non distant future in an empirical society perhaps controlled by a "greater something" that denies that existence and that cannot be proven.
It has an CGI animation but is really exquisite and well used, I hope to continue watching this anime all this season.
The characters are undoubtedly beautiful as well, they may be the husbands of the season for me.
The music is well implemented at the right time and the SFX are perfect.
Let's see how the story evolves, will it be a 2 vs 2?
