One day after his daily kickboxing practice, he is bitten by a strange creature calling itself Tris. That night, an unusual dream bothers his sleep. As the rumored "Drops" circulate around the city, Ryuhei is confronted with a force of twisted desire. What is it that awaits him beyond that?
D_CIDE TRAUMEREI THE ANIMATION is directed by Yoshikazu Kon and features animation production by Sanzigen. The series will broadcast in Japan on TOKYO MX and other stations beginning on July 10, 2021, and it will also stream on Crunchyroll as part of the summer 2021 simulcast lineup.
