Here’s Funimation’s official description for “LISTENERS”; From MAPPA (Terror in Resonance, Yuri!!! on ICE), Listeners takes place in a world where the entire idea of music vanishes from existence. The story follows Echo Rec (Ayumu Murase), a young teen who comes across μ (Rie Takahashi), a girl who, oddly enough, has an auxiliary port on her body. Together, they’ll work to rock the foundation of society and bring music back to the world.
LISTENERS will begin airing early April, 2020. If you’re in Japan, catch it on Mainchi Broadcasting System / Tokyo Broadcasting System / BS-TBS (animeism). Amazone Prime will be the exclusive streamer in Japan. Funimation will be streaming “LISTENERS”on the FunimationNow platform, simul-cast assumed until we know otherwise.
