What’s in The World Ends with You?
Complete the mission…or face erasure. That’s all Neku knows after regaining consciousness in the middle of a busy intersection without his memories.
Now he and his partner must fight to survive a life-or-death game in this twisted tale with more turns than the urban labyrinth of Tokyo they’re trapped in. In the crowded chaos of Tokyo, players of the Reapers’ Game must complete daily missions or face total erasure.
Neku might not be enthusiastic about forging relationships, but with his very life on the line, he’ll need to learn how to work together with a partner—and fast: they only have seven days.

Moreover, ALI will be performing the opening theme song of the series titled “Teenage City Riot” featuring R-指定, while ASCA will be performing the ending theme song titled “Carpe Diem.”
What’s more is that “carpe diem” is widely known and used as an inspirational quote. Well, “carpe diem” is actually a Latin aphorism, usually translated “seize the day.”
