A new trailer has been released for the upcoming anime adaptation of The World Ends with You that features the ending theme for the anime, "Carpe Diem" by ASCA. There isn't all that long to wait to see more of the adaptation as the world premiere advance screening of the first episode is set to happen this coming weekend on March 14th before the show officially airs in Japan in April.
Additionally, it was announced that artist Ilya Kuvshinov worked on the anime ending. Kuvshinov is perhaps most notable to fans of anime for having worked on Netflix's Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 as well as the 2019 anime movie The Wonderland. According to the announcement, fans will be able to check out cuts from the ending prior to the anime's broadcast.
