The World Ends With You The Animation Episode 5 spoilers

As usual, we translated the preview spoilers from the official site. Keep in mind my translations might use different spellings than what’s you’re used to for certain names and terms.

“Neku and Joshua visit Café Wild Cat on Cat Street. The shop actually belongs to Hanekoma, who helped Neku many times during his first Reaper Game. Hanekoma most notable give a piece of advice to Neku, and tells him to “fully enjoy the present”. On the other hand, game master Minamimoto goes missing, and a new type of Noise, the Forbidden Noise, appears, and start attacking not only the reaper game’s participants, but the Reapers themselves as well.”
