The official Japanese website for the anime adaptation of Eri Takenashi's Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens manga has begun streaming a two-minute trailer on Friday. (The video requires recent versions of Adobe Flash Player and Windows Media Player.) The story revolves around an art student named Jin Mikuriya who carves a statue from the wood of the Kannagi tree — only to have the statue come to life. The original tree happened to be possessed by a goddess, who has now taken over the statue. Jin finds himself being dragged around as "Nagi" goes around taking care of the duties of a goddess.
The anime will begin airing in Japan in October. The website also announced that the first DVD will ship on November 26 and that the opening theme song, which will go on sale at the end of October, will be sung by Nagi's voice actress Haruka Tomatsu.
