North American anime distributor Funimation announced on Thursday that it will stream the television anime adaptation of Touya Mikanagi's Karneval manga. Funimation will stream the series on Mondays starting on April 8 at 1:35 p.m. EDT.
Funimation is currently streaming an English-subtitled promotional video for the series.
The original manga follows Nai, a mysterious young boy who knows nothing other than his name and Karoku. With nothing but Karoku's bracelet from "Circus" to go on, Nai set out in search of Karoku when he was rescued from trouble by Gareki. When Gareki demands the bracelet in exchange for his help, Nai begins to travel with him and joins the National Defense Agency, “Circus” after getting involved with them and a freight train high-jacking. Nai will learn many new things as works together with various people. Gareki too will find the doors opening to worlds he never knew of before.
