Kamisama Dolls TV Anime's Promotional Video Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
Seiji Kishi & Brains Base's anime to debut in July with music by Masara Nishida, Chiaki Ishikawa

The official website of the Kamisama Dolls supernatural action television anime series relaunched on Thursday and also began streaming a 97-second "Story Side" promotional video along with the previously streamed "Girls Side" video. (The website of Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine already streamed the "Story Side" video last month, but the video was only available to Japanese Internet addresses.)

The website also confirmed that director Seiji Kishi and Brains Base's anime will premiere on TV Tokyo on July 5. Masara Nishida (Burst Angel, Kodomo no Jikan, Karin) and Chiaki Ishikawa (Mermaid Forest, .hack//Legend of the Twilight, Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: A Wakening of the Trailblazer) are composing the music, and Ishikawa also wrote and performed the opening and ending theme songs, "Fukanzen Nenshō" (Incomplete Combusion) and "Switch ga Haittara."

Hajime Yamamura's original supernatural action manga centers around Kyōhei (Nobuhiko Okamoto), a college student who grew up in a village that deified figureheads named kakashi as gods. Kyōhei abandoned his hometown when he moved to Tokyo and immersed himself in college life. However, he learns from his younger sister Utao (Misato Fukuen) that a fugitive named Aki (Ryōhei Kimura) from his hometown has also arrived in Tokyo (with his kakashi in tow) and is responsible for a horrific crime that Kyōhei had just witnessed.

The website confirmed the following cast members:
Ai Kayano as Hibino Shiba
Katsuki Murase as Kōshirō Hyūga 
Yumiko Kobayashi as Kirio 
Miyuki Sawashiro as Kuuko Karahari 
Kana Hanazawa as Mahiru Hyūga
