The World Ends with You Episode 2 Spoilers
In the first episode of ‘The World Ends with You: The Animation,’ Neku finds himself in the bizarre version of Japan’s Shibuya city. Before he can make sense of what is happening, he is tasked to defeat monsters knows as Noise. Luckily, he soon finds a partner, Shiki, with whom he takes on the strange creatures and completes the mission in time. Neku later learns that, like Shiki and others, he is also handpicked to play the Reaper’s Game, a life-and-death game that literally forces participants to put their lives on the line. Unfortunately, Neku is amnesiac and can’t recall anything except his name. By the end of the episode, he manages to make a few friends while his bonding with Shiki grows stronger.
In episode 2, the series is likely to reveal more about the Reaper’s Game. Viewers can expect to see a few power-ups as Neku will probably learn a few more tricks and push the boundaries of his abilities. Moreover, he may finally recall something from his past life or eventually find out the reason for his amnesia.
It is also quite baffling that he keeps getting unconscious and finds himself at the same place where he was lying on the first day. In the meantime, an entire day passes in a blink. Furthermore, Shiki and his other friends remember everything that they need to know about the world of Reaper’s Game, then why only Neku doesn’t recall anything? Why is he the only one who does not remember his past life? It will be exciting to watch how the story unfolds from here as the sci-anime explores several similar vital questions in the upcoming episode.
