The popular manga series “Sosei no Onmyoji (Twin Star Exorcists)” written and illustrated by Yoshiaki Sukeno which has been serialized in the comic magazine “JumpSQ” (Shueisha) will be made into an TV anime.
The time slot for the anime which has been causing a stir since the production announcement has been revealed recently. The anime show will begin broadcasting at 18:25 every Wednesday on TV Tokyo and other TX Network stations on April 6th (Wednesday), 2016.
Though many new TV anime series have been broadcasted, only a few of them have acquired a time slot in the highly competitive evening hours. The allocated time slot shows the intention to deliver “Sosei no Onmyoji (Twin Star Exorcists)” to many children. It would be safe to say this is a highly anticipated work in April 2016.
Along with the determination of the time slot, the key visual of the anime was released. It shows an impressive scene where Sosei no Onmyoji (Twin Star Exorcists), or Rokuro Enmado and Benio Adashino are facing front in a cautious stance, surrounded by the main characters including Yuto, Mayura, Seigen, and Shimon.
Above all, Shikigami ‘Kinako’ needs attention which is drawn at the foot of Benio. Kinako is an original character appearing only in the anime series. This entity serves Benio. The popular voice actor Jun Fukuyana will play its role. In contrast to its cute design, Kinako is said to speak in a heavy Kansai dialect. We are looking forward to listening to the performance of Fukuyama.
In addition, ahead of the TV broadcasting, an event will be held at the comprehensive anime event ‘AnimeJapan 2016’ for two days of March, the 26th and 27th. The event will take place on a stage set up in the avex pictures booth in the Main Area.
It is said that the superb cast will appear on the stage, and that details will be announced at a later date. We can’t take our eyes off the future information.
“Sosei no Onmyoji (Twin Star Exorcists)” is a battle action fantasy which has been serialized in the magazine since its December issue in 2013. The anime depicts a junior high-school boy Rokuro Enmado and an onmyoji (or exorcist) girl Benio Adashino fighting ‘Kegare’ coming from a different-dimension world into the human world.
In addition, the title “Sosei no Onmyoji (Twin Star Exorcists)” given to the pair suggests their mission of giving birth to a medium who will terminate the battles between Kegare and the humans. They live a couple life while conflicting with each other. The breadth covering hard actions and love comedy elements are the secret of the popularity.
