posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official website for the television anime adaptation of Kōhei Azano's Tokyo Ravens light novel series began streaming the second promotional video for the anime on Monday. The promotional video introduces characters Harutora (voiced by Kaito Ishikawa), Natsume (Kana Hanazawa), Tōji (Ryohei Kimura), and Hokuto (Hisako Kanemoto). Each character tries to convince Harutora to become an onmyōdō occult practitioner. In the end of the video, he becomes Natsume's Shikigami, to which she says, “Now you belong to me.” The video also features the anime's opening theme, “X-encounter” by Maon Kurosaki (Hakuōki Reimeiroku, High School of the Dead).
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. Additional cast members include Ayane Sakura as Suzuka Dairenji, Aki Toyosaki as Kon, Eri Kitamura as Kyōko Kurahashi, Hiro Shimono as Tenma Momoe, Koji Yusa as Jin Ōtomo, and Hiroyuki Yoshino as Reiji Kagami.
The school supernatural fantasy centers around Harutora, 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, a girl who was Harutora's childhood friend and the next head of the Tsuchimikado family, reunites with Harutora and changes his future.
The anime will premiere on Japanese television on October 8.
