Eien No 831 is a new original anime film written and directed by Kenji Kamiyama!
The official Twitter account for director Kenji Kamiyama’s new anime feature Eien no 831 (The Eternal 831) began streaming the second promotional video. Last August, it was announced that Kamiyama will both direct and write the anime film.
The video previews KanoeRana‘s opening theme song “Kingyo Bachi” and music duo angela‘s theme song “Hitohira no Mirai.” The anime will premiere on January 30 on WOWOW. The anime commemorates the network’s 30th anniversary in April 2021.
When speaking on Eien No 831, Kamiyama said that the anime is a “socially conscious youth crime adventure story.” The story is set in a Tokyo that is in deep disarray due to “an unprecedented calamity”.
