The official website for the AnimeJapan 2018 convention updated on Friday with a list of the event's exhibitors and their works. According to the list, the game company Success will exhibit a Kori no Koe television animation. Kori no Koe (Voice of Fox) is the Japanese title of the Chinese comic Hu Li Zhi Sheng by Guang Xian Jun. Success has yet to announce a Kori no Koe television animation, and the listing does not specify if the animation is Chinese or Japanese.
The plot of the Chinese comic is about a poor but talented high school boy named Hu Li (whose name is pronounced very similarly to the term for "fox" in Chinese). He is a "ghost" singer/songwriter for the popular and narcissistic boy idol Kong Que (pronounced very similarly to "peacock" in Chinese), who is very handsome but can barely sing. Hu always wear a fox mask to hide his large facial scar caused by a traffic accident. He also uses a screen name "Mr. Fox" to publish his music online.
Kori no Koe was serialized in the magazine 壹周漫画 (7-Day Comic) between June 2015 and September 2016, and contains 24 chapters. A second series started from May 2017, but went on hiatus with only one chapter. The author has shifted her work to an ongoing series Rhapsody of Mulan.
