The official Japanese website for the anime adaptation of Akira's Kyōran Kazoku Nikki science fiction comedy light novel series is streaming a promotional video in 1M or 500K bandwidth. The video combines the anime's opening animation with a short digest of the first episode. The television series wil premiere in Japan on April 12 after being first announced back in November.
The novels depict the not-so-normal life of a "family" that includes a catgirl "mother," a lion "son," a living land-combat android weapon "son," a jellyfish-like otherworldly "daughter," and a hapless 27-year-old military officer as their "father." This motley "family" in 2063 was assembled as part of the Imperial Japanese Anti-Paranormal Phenomena Section's Special Operations Forces. Its mission is to identify which family member is the prophesied destroyer of Earth and to prevent the apocalypse. The artist x6suke ("pekeRokusuke") illustrates the novels.
