Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san Manga to Bundle New Anime DVD
posted on by Egan Loo
The limited edition of the 11th manga volume will ship early next summer with the first anime adaptation of the "legendary" Isoginchaku (Anemone) arc. (This arc was not animated in either season of the television series.) In addition, the bespectacled student and Brilliant Magic user Osamu Osanai will make his animated debut.
The original anime DVD will run about 25 minutes long and reunite the "golden tag team" staff from the television anime at Production I.G, led by director Tsutomu Mizushima. Daishiro Tanimura wrote the script, and Junichirō Taniguchi is designing the characters. Kazuhiro Wakabayashi is directing the sound, and Ryuji Takagi is scoring the soundtrack with Starchild Records. The television cast members are also reprising their roles, including:
The gag comedy story revolves around the detective Akutabe, his assistant Rinko Sakuma, and the various magical demons (such as Azazel) that Akutabe uses for his cases. The manga has been running in Kodansha's Evening magazine since 2007, and the fourth, fifth, and eighth manga volumes shipped with the first, second, and third anime DVDs, respectively. The manga was nominated for the 2nd Manga Taisho Award on 2009.
