The TV anime ACCA 13-ku Kansatsu-ka, will start broadcast in January 2016, but until then we have a new key visual, staff info, and a new original character from the manga author!
Acca-kun, the new character, will be featured in an original twitter anime called ACCA-kun’s ACCA Lectures in November 2016.
The main character of the TV anime, Jean Ortus, appears in the key visual. He is joined by the rest of the members of the giant organisation known as ACCA.
The anime is planned to be broadcast on TOKYO MX, Sun, TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Setouchi, and BS11 and will be directed by Shingo Natsume who is known for his direction of One Punch Man. Many other staff members have been announced including Gosei Oda and Kanako Yoshida. The animation will be produced by Madhouse.
The anime’s original character, ACCA-kun, has also been revealed. He was designed by the original manga author, Natsume Ono. As ACCA’s official mascot, he looks a lot like a yuru-chara. We wonder just what kind of activities he will be taking part in.
Before the airing of the TV anime, an original twitter anime titled ACCA-kun’s ACCA Lectures will be released in November 2016. The series will feature a cartoonish ACCA-kun giving lectures on the world of ACCA. The animation will be provided by Flash animation studio, W-toon Studio.
The mascot will also appear at the Animate Girls Festival 2016 on November 5-6. He will be handing out leaflets explaining the world of ACCA, and special stickers for followers of the official twitter account.
