After a video of Fox Spirit Matchmaker (Enmusubi no Youko-chan) reached 100 million views on the Chinese video page BILIBILI, it was decided that the popular work would be adapted into a Japanese anime!
The upcoming anime revealed the first two members of the cast: Wataru Hatano (Hitoshi Shinso in My Hero Academia and Jaswant in The Heroic Legend of Arslan) will voice the main character and Kana Asumi (Poplar Taneshima in Working!) will join him.
The official website opened on 26 May 2017, so further information on the series probably won’t take long to be released!
TV Anime ‘Fox Spirit Matchmaker‘
We are in a world where youkai and Humans live together and love each other. But the life of humans is limited and youkai who lose their loved ones have to continue living without them. Even if the humans are reborn and the youkai find their partner again, previous memories are lost to the human. So a certain ‘service’ became popular among youkai. Some youkai can revive the lost memories of their love. So, if some youkai loses a loved one and still desires them, they can go and buy the service and restore the lovers memory, starting over with days full of love.
This series tells the story of one of the people who provide the service, restoring the minds of others and spreading love.
