Ayakashi Ayashi to Premiere on MBS/TBS in October

Aniplex, Bones and MBS are producing a new anime seres, Ayakashi Ayashi, set to premiere on MBS/TBS in October. Ayakashi Ayashi will replace Blood+ in MBS/TBS's coveted 6PM Saturday time slot. Previous anime showed at that time include Gundam Seed and Fullmetal Alchemist.

Aspirations for the show are high, since the series is a period/historically themed anime - an unusual entry into this kind of a time slot. Furthermore, this will be the first appearance in this time slot for Bones, who last had a series in that slot 3 years ago with Fullmetal Alchemist.

Character designs will be done by Toshihiro Kawamoto, while the series will be directed by Hiroshi Nishikiori, based on an original concept by Shou Aikawa.

Errata: Previously we stated that character designs for Ayakashi Ayashi would be done by Shoji Kawamori. This was incorrect, they will be provided by Toshihiro Kawamoto. ANN apologises for this error.
