The official YouTube channel for the Kotoura-san anime series began streaming a new 30-second television ad and the third mini episode about the character Yuriko Mifune (played by Kana Hanazawa) on Friday.
In the ad, Mifune tells the anime's heroine Haruka Kotoura (Hisako Kanemoto) about her plans to take the world into her hands by proving all forms of supernatural powers exist. The ad features the series' opening theme, "Sonna Koto Ura no Mata Urabanashi Desho?" by Megumi Nakajima.
Each of the six weekly "Haruka no Heya" (Haruka's Room) mini episodes has Haruka introducing one of the series' characters. In the third episode, Haruka puts Mifune in the interviewee's chair.
Haruka is a girl who can read people's minds, and she joins the ESP club after transferring to a new school. Mifune is the female president of the ESP club.
The main cast also includes Jun Fukushima (Working!!, La storia della Arcana Famiglia) as Yoshihisa Manabe, Yurika Kubo (Love Live! School idol project, Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse) as Hiyori Moritani, and Hiro Shimono (Ben-To, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) as Daichi Muroto.
Masahiko Ohta (Minami-ke, Mitsudomoe, Yuruyuri) is directing the anime at the studio AIC Classic. Takashi Aoshima (Minami-ke, Mitsudomoe, Yuruyuri) is in charge of the series scripts, while Takaharu Okuma (Mitsudomoe, Hanaukyo Maid-tai) is serving as the character designer and chief animation director. Enokids created the original four-panel online romantic comedy manga.
The anime will premiere in Japan on January 10.
