In a social media post on Tuesday, REMAIN‘s official Twitter confirmed that the show will officially premiere in Japan on July 3, 2021. A brand new key visual from the MAPPA anime was also shared to give fans an early glimpse of the animation style and tone to expect when the series premiered in July. The series was co-designed by Masafumi Nishida, who previously worked at Tiger & Bunny.

REMAIN will tell the story of Minato Kiyomizu, a former water polo player who had an incident while in middle school. Now a high schooler Minato decides to jump in again and try to realize his dream as a water polo player. With friends and teammates supporting him, he is ready for an unforgettable adventure. No US streaming announcements have been made regarding the show, so fans will continue to wait for more information.
