As the premiere date for “The Imaginary” gradually approaches, anticipation is mounting among anime circles.

Plot Synopsis: What is “The Imaginary” About?

“The Imaginary” narrates the compelling tale of Rudger, an unseen and intangible young boy. Rudger emerges from the imagination of Amanda Shuffleup, a girl grappling with the loss of her affection. However, just like many other figments of imagination, Amanda’s maturation and the intrusion of the real world threatens to erase her memory of Rudger.

The fate of forgotten Imaginaries is to vanish, but Rudger might evade this grim destiny. The forgotten can find solace and camaraderie in a sanctuary known as the Town of Imaginaries.

Confronted by the dangerous Mr. Bunting, a hunter of Imaginary beings, Rudger embarks on a desperate journey to reconnect with Amanda before the specter of being forgotten becomes a reality, all while eluding the clutches of Mr. Bunting.
