posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official Twitter account for the anime adaptation of Sayaka Mogi's horror manga Pupa announced on Friday that the anime has been delayed from its original Fall premiere date. The anime is now scheduled to begin airing in January. The staff apologized for being late to announce the delay of the anime.
The tale of "ultimate sibling love" follows a girl named Yume Hasegawa who turns into a monster. 15-year-old Ibuki Kido plays Yume, while Nobunaga Shimazaki (Silver Spoon's Shinnosuke Aikawa, Date A Live's Shido Itsuka) plays her big brother Utsutsu who will become her living food supply. Koji Yusa (Zetman's Seiji Haitani, Blue Exorcist's Renzō Shima) plays Shirō Onijima, and Kyōko Narumi (Teekyū's Nasuno Takamiya) rounds out the main cast as Maria.
Tomomi Mochizuki (House of Five Leaves, Ocean Waves, Here Is Greenwood, Twin Spica) is serving as the director, writer, and sound director of the anime at Studio DEEN (When They Cry - Higurashi, Rozen Maiden, Hetalia). Maki Fujii (UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie, 07-Ghost, Shattered Angels, Destiny of the Shrine Maiden) is serving as character designer and chief animation director.
