The anime will premiere in Japan in April.
The light novelist Kentarō Katayama created the original story about a high school boy named Shinkurō Kurenai and Murasaki, the powerful Kuhōin syndicate's seven-year-old heir that Kurenai swore to protect and watch over. The anime adaptation was confirmed in August, and the novels' original illustrator Yamato Yamamoto began the manga adaptation in Shueisha's premiere issue of Jump Square magazine in November.
