Series to premiere in October
Media Factory began streaming the first promotional video for the anime adaptation of Midori Endō’s Gugure! Kokkuri-san on Friday. The series is slated to premiere in October.
Yukari Tamura narrates the video, which introduces the premise. Kohina Ichimatsu, a little girl who ends up summoning by a Kokkuri-san, a lower-ranking ghost in Japanese folklore. The Kokkuri-san she calls ends up being a white-haired handsome, young man. Although he had intended to merely haunt her at first, he becomes worried about her terrible eating habit of cup ramen for every meal, so he decides to haunt her in order to protect her. To complicate matters, Kohina’s doting dog spirit, Inugami, and no-good tanuki, Shigaraki, join them.
Yoshimasa Hiraike (Working!!, Amagami SS) will direct the anime at TMS Entertainment (Yowamushi Pedal, Brave10). Miwa Oshima (Baka and Test – Summon the Beasts, GJ Club) will design the characters.
Endō began the manga in 2011, and Square Enix shipped the sixth compiled volume in Japan in March.
