The anime will also have an advance screening event on July 3, ahead of the anime's premiere. Screenings will be held in Toho Cinemas in Shinjuku/Shibuya (Tokyo), Nagoya Bay City (Nagoya), and Umeda/Nanba (Osaka). The screenings will show parts from both "Side: Future" and "Side: Despair," but did not specify how many episodes will be shown.
"Side: Future" will premiere on Tokyo MX on July 11 at 11:00 p.m., followed by "Side: Despair" on July 14 11:30 p.m. Both arcs will also run every week on the BS11 channel.
