Kiku-chan to Ōkami TV Anime Special's Trailer Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
Wartime fable from Grave of the Fireflies' Nosaka about girl befriended by wolf

The Shinei Animation studio is streaming a new trailer for its August 15 television anime adaptation of the Kiku-chan to Ōkami (Kiku-chan and the Wolf) wartime fable on its website. Grave of the Fireflies author Akiyuki Nosaka wrote the original Toshi-Oi Mesu-Ōkami to Onna no Ko no Hanashi (The Story of the Old Mother Wolf and the Girl) story about a wolf in World War II Manchuria who watches over a girl like her mother. The television special is the seventh in Shin-Ei's Sensō Dōwa (wartime fable) series; Shin-Ei animated the Futatsu no Kurumi (Two Walnuts) wartime story last year.
