The official website for the television anime adaptation of Kōhei Azano's Tokyo Ravens light novel series began streaming a promotional video on Monday that previously screened at Comiket last weekend. The anime series will premiere this October.
In addition, the official site announced on Saturday that Maon Kurosaki (Hakuōki Reimeiroku, Highschool of the Dead) will perform the opening theme and fripSide's Yoshino Nanjō (Love Live! School idol project, A Certain Scientific Railgun S) will perform the ending theme.
Takaomi Kanasaki (Is This a Zombie?, School Rumble: 2nd Semester) is directing the series at 8-Bit with series composition by Hideyuki Kurata (Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens, Oreimo, The World God Only Knows). Katsuko Watanabe (The Everyday Tales of a Cat God, Place to Place, Juden Chan) will serve as character designer. Kaito Ishikawa and Kana Hanazawa will star as the two leads. The series also stars Hisako Kanemoto as Hokuto, Ryohei Kimura as Tōji Ato, Ayane Sakura as Suzuka Dairenji, Aki Toyosaki as Kon, Eri Kitamura as Kyōko Kurahashi, and Hiro Shimono as Tenma Momoe.
The school supernatural fantasy centers around Harutora (Ishikawa), a boy from a branch of the Tsuchimikado family of onmyōdō occult practitioners. However, he lacks the ability to see spirit energy, so he is now just an ordinary high school student. Natsume (Hanazawa), a girl who was Harutora's childhood friend and the next head of the Tsuchimikado family, reunites with Harutora and changes his future.
