Also, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, everything has came to halt. We don't know when will the production work start again. It is assumed that we can expect the series by the end of this year or in early 2021.
The another the reason for the delay is the poor health conditions of the creator Daisuke Ashihara. We wish him a speedy recovery so that he resume his work again as fans are getting anxious day by day.

One day, the gateway suddenly get opened and demons started coming from the parallel universe. The people of Mikado named them as Neighbors. Without adequate protection and security, it was tough for Mikado's citizens to protect themselves. A group then appears to save them from the evil force. Border, an organization helped in reviving Neighbor's technology.
The entire story revolves around a young boy named Yamu Kuga, who is a hero and also the protagonist. He is one of the neighbors. He has been to school and always tried his best to remain hidden from the borders. He along with his friend, Osamu Mikumo will stop the borders.

Will Yamu along with his friend succeed in his work? And when the citizens of Mikado will get rid of the aliens? Season 2 will surely answer it all.
The series is at the 10th position in the Top 100 TV anime series in Tokyo Enemy Award Festival.
