“Tokyo Babylone 2021” is based on “Tokyo Babylone”, which was serialized in “South” and “Monthly Wings” from 1990 to 1993, and was said to be one of the best works of early day CLAMP.
Go Hands will be working on animation production.

The protagonist, Sumeragi Subaru, will be played by Aoi, Subaru’s twin sister, Sumeragi Hokuto, by Mizuki, and the mysterious man who appears in front of Subaru, Sakurazuka Seishirou, will be played by Umehara. We have received comments from these three main cast members. It has also been announced that Aoi Shouta will be singing the opening theme song and Mizuki Nana will be singing the ending theme song.
The newly released 2nd trailer shows the intense battle scenes of Subaru, Hokuto, and Seishirou, and their voices were revealed for the first time.

Aoi Souta as Sumeragi Subaru
I was given the role of Sumeragi Subaru in “Tokyo Babylon 2021”.
The classic by CLAMP-sensei will be reborn.
I wish to deliver the large theme of this work and something we can’t feel every day, through Subaru who lives in 2021.
Please look forward to the show!

I will do my best to play Seishirou, so please look forward to the show!
