To Your Eternity Season 2 Trailer
The official website of To Your Eternity (Fumetsu no Anata e) has teased a new video trailer for the upcoming Season 2. One can make out the name of the director and the studio in the new To Your Eternity Season 2 Trailer.
One can see the name Kiyoko Sayama as the new director of the anime. He will replace Masahiko Murata of Season 1. He is known for his works in Vampire Knight, Prétear, and Amanchu! Advance. The new studio name flashed is Drive replacing Brains Base.
To Your Eternity Key Visual
NHK’s official Twitter account has shared a stunning poster of Fushi, the main character drawn by character designer Koji Yabuno. One can see a clear face of Fushi on a white background with piercing yellow eyes on the pink skin. One can also make out two spots of purple-greenish color just above his hair and on his shoulders.
What is To Your Eternity About?
At its very core, the story takes you into an emotional journey of an immortal being called the Orb or Fushi. The irony lies in the fact that Fushi comes to earth without the capacity for emotions or even an identity. He is capable of taking the form of those who leave an impression on him. As a perfect representation of a slice of life anime, this series delves into questions of identity, relationships, personal development and dealing with hardships.
The manga tells the story of a lonely boy who wanders the arctic regions of North America and meets a wolf. Fushi gains companions in the form of March and Parona as he traverses conflicted lands and is opposed by destructive forces called The Knockers. The Beholder, the one who sends Fushi to earth gives him a purpose to preserve the world.
There are existentialist undertones of choosing your own path, endurance and finding meaning in the life chosen. While it deals with heavy themes, the aesthetics and music of the anime push it to yet another level. Easy to say, it would be an unfortunate miss to leave this out of your watch list.
For lovers of anime like Sket Dance, ReLife and Tatami Galaxy, To Your Eternity is a perfect watch for heart-soaring deep content that stays with you for years.
To Your Eternity Season 2 Plot
To Your Eternity Season 1 ended with the Janada Island Arc with Fushi and Pioran accidentally boarding the ship to the island of prisoners. Season 1 ended with episode 20 and the passing of Pioran which deeply saddens Fushi. Pioran asks the Beholder if she would be reborn as someone useful to Fushi. Fushi grieves her passing and several decades later, as a middle-aged man, seems a bit unhinged as he laughs after killing a Nokker.
To Your Eternity Season 2 is expected to pick up where Season 1 left. The first Season covered the manga till chapter 54. Season 2 is set up perfectly to begin after the time-skip. Fushi seems lost in his journey that began years ago. The new season will begin with the Guardians Arc where he meets old friends and companions he has not met in years.
