Bad news for those who awaited the imminent debut of World’s End Harem (Shuumatsu no Harem), the anime based on the sci-fi sexy manga of the same name written by LINK and designed by Kotaro Shōno.
The official website of this anime adaptation has in fact announced that it has postponed all the episodes following the first episode which, however, has already aired today on Japanese TV.
Why has World’s End Harem been revised?
World’s End Harem will resume in January 2022 due to the need to “carefully examine the production of the anime”.
The first episode, aired as scheduled, however, will not be streamed until next January, when the anime (which should have landed the simulcast on Crunchyroll) will resume from the beginning.
Plot, trailer and details of Shuumatsu no Harem
Tokyo, year 2040. Reito Mizuhara, a boy who attends the state medical university suffering from multiple sclerosis, decides to go into cryogenic sleep in the hope of awakening when a cure has been found for his disease, exchanging with Erisa Tachibana – the girl of his dreams – the promise to reunite again.
Meanwhile, a lethal disease linked to the Man-Killer virus has practically decimated men, causing the death of 99.9% of the world’s male population.
When Reito awakens 5 years later from cryogenic sleep, he finds himself cured but in a new world obsessed with sex where he himself is the most precious resource on the planet. Reito and four other specimens of human males are granted a comfortable life immersed in luxury in the face of a simple mission: to repopulate the world by reproducing with as many women as possible!
However, what Reito really wants is to find his beloved Erisa, who disappeared three years ago. Will Reito be able to resist temptation and find his only true love considering that after awakening, in “his service”, he found Mira Suou, a girl who looks a lot like Erisa?
Yuu Nobuta (High School Fleet, Maesetsu! Opening Act, Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear) is directing the anime at Studio Gokumi and AXsiZ. Tatsuya Takahashi (The IDOLM @ STER Cinderella Girls, Domestic Girlfriend, Val x Love) is responsible for the scripts for the anime. Masaru Koseki (Happiness !, Demon King Daimao) is taking care of the character design of the characters while Shigenobu Ookawa (Tayutama – Kiss on My Deity, Miss Monochrome) is composing the music.
