The official website for the television series adaptation of Hideo Okuda's Kūchū Buranko (Trapeze) short story collection has begun streaming a 144-second promotional video for the October 15 premiere. This hybrid series of 2D anime and live-action segments will depict the various odd patients of psychiatrist Ichirō Irabu. 20-year-old media personality Yumi Sugimoto will play a "sexy nurse" in both the anime and live-action segments. Yuji Mitsuya and Romi Paku are splitting the shared role of Irabu since the character takes on three different forms (pictured at right).
For this project, director Kenji Nakamura is reuniting with his Ayakashi - Samurai Horror Tales (Bakeneko) and Mononoke character designer/chief animation director Takashi Hashimoto at Toei Animation. The television series will run on Fuji TV's popular late-night Noitamina timeslot.
