What is Wonder Egg Priority
Wonder Egg Priority is a beautifully animated psychological fantasy anime. The series introduces us to Ai Ooto dealing with the fallout Following the suicide of her best and only friend, Koito Nagase. In her despair, a mysterious entity convinces her to purchase a “Wonder Egg.” Upon breaking the egg, a world materializes in Ai’s sleep where she defends the spirits of “dead girls” from knife-wielding demons and enormous monsters. Ai is hesitant to her task initially but is convinced that defending the spirits of the dead will return her lost best friend to life.
While I’m not typically a fan of fantasy action anime, Wonder Egg Priority is a different breed of anime. The series balances the sensational action sequences with our main character’s psychological inner turmoil without taking away from either facet of the show. In fact, the two themes work together to make a thought-provoking and exciting anime.
The first episode aired on January 13, 2021, in Japan. Season 1 ran for 12 episodes with the last episode airing on March 31, 2021. There is currently no news on Season 2, but a special episode is set to release on June 30, 2021
