The official website for the previously announced anime of Sayaka Mogi's horror manga Pupa announced that Tomomi Mochizuki (House of Five Leaves, Ocean Waves, Here Is Greenwood, Twin Spica) is directing the anime at Studio DEEN (When They Cry - Higurashi, Rozen Maiden, Hetalia). The anime will premiere on television this fall.
The "life-and-death sibling" story follows Utsutsu and Yume Hasegawa, a boy and his little sister who find themselves all alone. One day, Yume sees a mysterious red butterfly and her body undergoes a strange metamorphosis — into a creature that eats humans. Utsutsu struggles to find a way to restore his sister.
