The multimedia project VERSEⁿ will depict a story of “girls who connect the world”, alongside the audience of the past, present, and future of the VERSEⁿ world across live streams, anime, music, illustrations, novels, and manga.
The project’s first anime PV produced by mazilla, who worked on the OP movies of Fate/Grand Order – Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia and DARLING in the FRANXX, is set to be posted on its official YouTube channel on November 12, 2021.
Sony describes the story as:
A story about girls who connect the world.
Rin is lost in her imagination, as usual. Among the countless worlds that floated in her eyelids as daydreams, some are close to the real world we live in, while others are supernatural worlds that are out of common sense. Rin lives in all of them, and in each of them, she has five girls she could call her best friends.
One day, as if dragged down by something, each world slowly collapses, affecting each other, and eventually, one world was destroyed.
And, the memories of the five girls come back in our world.
The truth awaits beyond the missing memories that lead to Rin.
In order to get there, the girls begin to tell something to someone.
