If you haven’t seen us gush over this series previously, well you are going to hear about us gushing over it now. To Your Eternity was our best new series of 2021, and for good reason. The now internationally Emmy Nominated series To Your Eternity returns this Saturday with season 2 on Crunchyroll. Need a reminder of what it’s about, well here you go:
In the beginning, an “orb” is cast unto Earth. “It” can do two things: change into the form of the thing that stimulates “it”; and come back to life after death. “It” morphs from orb to rock, then to wolf, and finally to boy, but roams about like a newborn who knows nothing. As a boy, “it” becomes Fushi. Through encounters with human kindness, Fushi not only gains survival skills, but grows as a “person”. But his journey is darkened by the inexplicable and destructive enemy Nokker, as well as cruel partings with the people he loves.
This emotionally deep series continues to push the boundaries of what it means to be human as we watch Fushi learn about friendship, family, and the pain of losing loved ones and being alone. I would recommend this series over and over to anyone looking for something truly thought-provoking and wholesome. But you may need the tissues from the first episode. So now that the new season is about to drop, let’s check out the teaser for it.
Season Two takes place nearly 40 years since Fushi had last been seen. The pain of losing those he loved became too much to bear, so he chose a life of solitude. His absence, however, didn’t prevent his mortal foes, the Nokkers, from waging chaos. To stop any more bloodshed from occurring, he breaks his long silence to fight them once again. He doesn’t need friends to survive this, but he’ll need them to live.
Head on over to Crunchyroll and check out To Your Eternity Season 2 this Sunday and rewatch season 1 now! Oh and bring the tissues.
