The science-fiction thriller Night Head 2041 will make its television premiere this July as part of the Summer 2021 anime season.

Based off the 1992 live-action drama Night Head, the new anime series will follow two sets of brothers. First there’s the Kirihara brothers; siblings with supernatural powers who escaped from a detention facility. Then there’s the Kuroki brothers, siblings who are chasing after the Kiriharas.
