The media company Starchild has launched a website for the second Shikabane Hime television anime series, Shikabane Hime: Kuro, and confirmed that it will premiere in January. The titular Shikabane Hime ("Corpse Princess") in Yoshiichi Akahito's original Shikabane Hime manga is Makina Hoshimura, an undead girl who hunts down 108 corpses in order to go to heaven. Director Masahiko Murata has already been adapting the beginning of the manga for the first Shikabane Hime television anime series, which premiered last month.
FUNimation Entertainment confimed last month that it has acquired Shikabane Hime: Aka, and has since been posting episodes within three weeks of their Japanese broadcast. FUNimation has yet to announce whether it has the rights for the second anime series.
