The main cast and staff have also been revealed. In addition, the official site of the anime series has released motion comics and announced stage adaptation.
“Fukigen na Mononokean (The Morose Mononokean)” is a manga series written and illustrated by Kiri Wazawa which has been serialized on ‘Gan Gan Online’ since 2013. The story starts from the scene where a senior high-school student named Hanae Ashiya, who has been haunted by yōkai (specters), visits an exorcist shop ‘Mononokean’. There he meets Haruitsuki Abeno who is the owner of the Mononokean, and begins working part-time. The manga depicts the daily life of the two characters with yōkai.
In the TV anime series, Yūki Kaji and Tomoaki Maeno have been set to voice Hanae Ashiya and Haruitsuki Abeno individually. The series will be directed by Akira Iwanaga who worked as the director of “Tegami Bachi REVERSE” and “Kingudamu (Kingdom)” Season 2. The series will be written by Takao Yoshioka who was in charge of the series composition of “Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie in April)” and “Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dō Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui! (No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular!)” which is also serialized on ‘Gan Gan Online’. The music will be composed by Yasuharu Takanashi who worked on that of “NARUTO-” and the “Purikyua” (Precure or Pretty Cure) series.
The animation is being produced by Pierrot Plus.
Ahead of the premiere, the official site of the TV anime released “motion comics”. A motion comic (or animated comic) is a form of animation combining still images of a manga with voice acting. The comics are scheduled to be updated four times in total. The update is performed at noon every Thursday from March 10th to March 31st. You can listen to the voices of the two cast members revealed this time, in advance.
The official site has also announced the stage adaptation, and its teaser site has been launched. The stage play will be performed at Akasaka Red Theater from September 7th to 11th in 2016. We need to pay attention to the future development of this work in various fields such as TV anime and stage adaptation.
