The upcoming anime adaptation of Konohana Kitan by Sakuya Amano revealed that the series will air in the Fall 2017 season. With this announcement came a key visual and the first trailer was uploaded onto YouTube.
Konohana Kitan is about an onsen lying in a town right between this world and another. Some fox spirits work there, disguised as girls, and we follow their daily lives. The manga it is based on is being serialized in Gentosha’s Comic Birz.
The trailer is nearly 30 seconds long and shows Yuzu and how she visits the onsen for the first time, looking down at the town with big eyes. The key visual shows the six fox spirits in front of the onsen, standing below a cherry tree in full bloom.
