Hiro Shimono & Hiroshi Kamiya narrate as characters Nai & Gareki

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Touya Mikanagi's Karneval manga added the first 36-second promotional video on Tuesday. Voice actors Hiro Shimono (Nai) and Hiroshi Kamiya (Gareki) narrate the video.

The website also updated with details about a February 10 "Opening Performance" event in Tokyo, as well as additional character profiles.

The original manga follows Nai, a naïve boy searching for someone important to him, with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue. He encounters the pickpocket Gareki when the two meet in a strange mansion. Soon they find themselves part of a setup, becoming wanted criminals by military security operatives. When all hope seems lost, the two are introduced to none other than the country's most powerful defense organization, "Circus."

Eiji Suganuma (Kodomo no Jikan, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers, Ninja Cadets, Sasameki Koto) is directing the series at Manglobe (Deadman Wonderland, Hayate the Combat Butler: Can't Take My Eyes Off You, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers, Ergo Proxy) and Touko Machida (THE IDOLM@STER, Lucky Star, Amnesia) is handling the scripts. Toshie Kawamura (Yes! Precure 5, Smile Precure!, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers) is serving as the character designer and chief animation director for the series.

The television series is scheduled to premiere this spring, and the manga's 10th volume shippped last month with an anime preview DVD.

Update: Typo fixed. Thanks, Darkmagick.
