GRANRODEO's opening song previewed for Spring anime of Touya Mikanagi's manga

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Touya Mikanagi's Karneval manga began streaming the third promotional video on January 28, and the fourth video on Wednesday. The third video features the music of the anime's composers Shiroh Hamaguchi (One Piece, Girls und Panzer, Hanasaku Iroha - Blossoms for Tomorrow) and Keiji Inai (Btooom!, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: Demon Capital). It also features the narration of the Circus mascot Nyanperōna and ship defense systems Hitsuji and Usagi (voiced by Hiromi Igarashi).

The ship fighters Kiichi (Eri Kitamura) and Jiki (Yūichi Nakamura) narrate the fourth video, which previews the opening theme song "Henai no Rondo" by GRANRODEO.



The original manga follows Nai, a naïve boy searching for someone important to him, with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue. He encounters the pickpocket Gareki when the two meet in a strange mansion. Soon they find themselves part of a setup, becoming wanted criminals by military security operatives. When all hope seems lost, the two are introduced to none other than the country's most powerful defense organization, "Circus."

Eiji Suganuma (Kodomo no Jikan, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers, Ninja Cadets, Sasameki Koto) is directing the series at Manglobe (Deadman Wonderland, Hayate the Combat Butler: Can't Take My Eyes Off You, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers, Ergo Proxy) and Touko Machida (THE [email protected], Lucky Star, Amnesia) is handling the scripts. Toshie Kawamura (Yes! Precure 5, Smile Precure!, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers) is serving as the character designer and chief animation director for the series.

The television series will premiere on April 3, and the manga's 10th volume shipped in October with an anime preview DVD.
