It has been a long time since the first season of the World Ends With You series, and the wait is nearly over for the final season. If you are unfamiliar with the plot of the show let me give you a quick rundown. In the world where Neku resides, people’s souls live on after they die in what is called “the space between life and death.” The Reapers keep track of how many souls each person should have based on their actions when they were alive. This creates an imbalance in the system because some people do not receive their rightful amount while others take more than they deserve. This article is about The World Ends With You 2.

Plot details of The World Ends With You 2:
The protagonist of the first game, Neku Sakuraba was reluctant to work with the new group for the upcoming battle as he had not been able to see Beat and Rhyme during the previous six weeks. Neku is a very cynical teenager whose life seems pretty much over until he wakes up one day having completed a strange game with the Reapers.
The sequel follows the storyline of the third week in this game, where Neku wakes up to find that his partners have all been killed and he must fight alongside them again if he wishes to get back home.
