The official Japanese website for the anime adaptation of Eri Takenashi's Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens manga has posted a television commercial from the Tokyo MX broadcasting station on Wednesday. (The online video requires Windows Media Player.) The story revolves around an art student named Jin Mikuriya who carves a statue from the wood of the Kannagi tree — only to have the statue come to life. The original tree happened to be possessed by a goddess, who has now taken over the statue. Jin finds himself being dragged around as "Nagi" goes around taking care of the duties of a goddess.
The ad shows Nagi being drawn onto a standard sheet of drawing paper used in the animation industry. It also confirms that the series is in production and will premiere on October 4 in Japan.
