The official Twitter account for Studio Trigger and A-1 Pictures' original science-fiction television anime DARLING in the FRANKXX began streaming a new commercial on Thursday, introducing the two characters that appear in the teaser visual (below).
The video introduces the two characters as "children without names." Instead, they go by "Code:016" and "Code:002." The video also features new images by character designer Masayoshi Tanaka, and quotations from each character. Code:016's quotations (in blue) read, "What am I doing?," "My whereabouts are nowhere...," "The dying never changes," and "Let me ride!" Code:002's quotations (in red) read, "I am... always alone," "I don't like my own taste," "I'm not afraid of death," and "Are you prepared to die?"
