NIGHT HEAD 2041 is a paranormal series that subscribes to the concept that 70% of the human brain goes unused (hence the "night head" referred to in the title), and that this is where supernatural abilities reside. The series stars Naoto and Naoya Kirihara, a pair of brothers who have harnessed a variety of supernatural powers; and the new Kuroki brothers, who work for the National Guard Unit hunting down psychics.
NIGHT HEAD 2041 premieres on Fuji TV's +Ultra block on July 14 at 24:55 (effectively 12:55 am on July 15).
