In the new PV, you can catch a glimpse of some of the scenery in Ikebukuro, as well as some of the main characters you’ll encounter.
More information on broadcasting date and time will be revealed in the coming weeks.
Naturally, the new opening and ending themes hype is real! The OP is titled “ニードルノット” and will be performed by THE PINBALLS, and the ED is titled “after song” and will be perfomed by INNOSENT in FORMAL.
Ikebukuro West Gate Park was announced at FunimationCon 2020 as part of the upcoming October Simulcast Season on AnimeLab. Based on a series of urban mystery novels (and their live-action adaptation), the series follows the coolheaded Makoto as he navigates the pressures of an encroaching gang life in the G-Boys due to his friend, King, being a leader.
Makoto sees an opportunity to become a troubleshooter for the gang as a way to keep things calm and protect his friends, but when someone close to him is killed and a rival gang kicks off a turf war, Makoto will find it a bit tough to stay cool.
Ikebukuro West Gate Park premieres on AnimeLab this October!
