Amazon began listing the Seven Senses of the Re'Union (Shichisei no Subaru) anime with four Blu-ray Disc and DVD home video releases for Japan. The releases list the anime with 12 episodes. The volumes are slated to ship on September 24, October 29, November 26, and December 24.
Yoshito Nishōji (Maji de Otaku na English! Ribbon-chan: Eigo de Tatakau Mahō Shōjo the TV, Koro Teacher Quest!) is directing the anime at Lerche. Takao Yoshioka (High School DxD, Ikki Tousen, The Testament of Sister New Devil) is in charge of series composition. Yumiko Yamamoto (Konohana Kitan animation director) is drawing the character designs, and is also the chief animation director.
In the novels' story, there was once a legendary party named Subaru in the globally popular MMORPG Union. The group was made of elementary school friends. They earned fame in the blink of an eye for their unparalleled abilities in the Sense system at the core of the game. However, there was an incident where a player passed away inside the game. As a result of the death, Union ended service.
Six years pass. Haruto Amō, who was a key member of Subaru, has become a hopeless high school student. His personality has changed, and he has no friends or ambition. A classmate gets him to log in to the new Re'Union game, and he ends up having a "reunion" that is hard to believe. He meets his former in-game partner and real-world childhood friend Asahi Kuga. The girl who was supposed to have died six years ago was there.
Haruto can't believe his eyes. He thinks he must be ill or Asahi must be a system error or bug. Yet, she really seems to be there in the game. A new legend begins after the pair's reunion.
