The collaboration between two respected Japanese studios in the anime industry increased the buzz for an already well-anticipated anime adaptation, and they have been releasing some nice key visuals for the upcoming anime. Wit Studio is the mind behind the first three Attack on Titan seasons, The Great Pretender, the masterpiece that is Vinland Saga season 1, and more. And CloverWorks is a large studio behind Fate Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front Babylonia, The Promised Neverland’s amazing first season, and the visual beauty of Fate Apocrypha among other works.
In an earlier key visual released, one can see the family of three walking down the street like an everyday, mundane group, but below on the pavement are their real personas. Loid is an intelligent spy, Yor is a ruthless assassin, and Anya is a powerful telepath. The key visual is a perfect illustration of what the show is about. Other than the key visuals, there were also promotional pictures released for Jump Festa 2022 that centered around Anya.
