posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Yakusoku no Nanaya Matsuri (The Promised Seventh Night Matsuri), XFLAG's new original one-hour net anime, announced on Saturday that the anime is delayed. The anime was originally scheduled to premiere on July 7 (the Tanabata holiday in Japan) at 7:00 p.m. (6:00 a.m. EDT) on YouTube. XFLAG will reveal the anime's new debut date and time at a later date.
The anime centers on Shoma Mihara, a first-year high school student. Shoma hasn't seen his good friend Atsushi in 3.5 years, ever since they lost contact with each other after elementary school. One day, Atsushi gets in contact with Shoma to invite him to a rare festival, so they can meet up and talk. Shoma goes to the "Tanabata Seven Night Festival" deep in the mountains, but Atsushi is not there. Instead, a girl named Shiori who also has a person she wants to meet is there. The festival's program manager Kanna suggests that he stay until the festival is over, and so Shoma and Shiori help Kanna prepare for the festival. Shoma and Shiori then get wrapped up in some strange events happening in the town.
Kazuya Murata (A.I.C.O. -Incarnation-, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos, KADO - The Right Answer) is directing the anime, and XFLAG Studio is credited with both the script and the production, alongside animation studio Yokohama Animation Lab. Senbon Umishima (She and Her Cat -Everything Flows-, Recovery of an MMO Junkie) is adapting Majiro's (The Thousand Noble Musketeers, Kabukibu!, Barakamon) original character designs for animation, and Taro Iwashiro (The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, A.I.C.O. -Incarnation-) is composing the music.
Anri Kumaki is performing the theme song "Awai."
