You know, you can fit a ton of moments into two minutes.
Earlier today, the official Kokkoku: Moment by Moment anime website updated with a new teaser trailer. The two-minute promo introduces the core concepts behind the series (plus a healthy dose of temporal weirdness and eldritch horrors).
A new key visual was also released, which features the major cast members standing on an unidentified street. A shadow of a horrific monster can be seen stretching across the scene as a blood-red silhouette.
Kokkoku: Moment by Moment will air in January 2018. Tokyo MX and BS11 will air the series on Japanese TV. On the digital front, Amazon will stream the show exclusively on Amazon Prime in all regions.
