Subaru, the series’ protagonist, is seen walking through a field. All seems well until blood can be seen on the ground around him, which he passes slowly without taking any notice of it.
As he continues to walk forward through the field, the source of the blood becomes apparent: Corpses, both of familiar characters and random civilians, can be seen piled on top of each other to either side of Subaru, the cause of their deaths unclear.
Subaru continues to march forward until he comes to a woman with white hair drinking tea on a hill. Upon seeing her, viewers get a glimpse of Subaru’s face, which is a mixture of determination and rage. The trailer then ends on the line “I see. So that is the root of your desire.”
It’s a dramatic and haunting teaser to say the least, and raises more than a few questions fans of the series will be eager to see answered later this year.
The full teaser trailer can be viewed down below.
