Kokkuri-san: The super-popular comic from Midori Endo, Gugure! Kokkuri-san! A TV anime is scheduled to begin broadcasting on TV Tokyo and other channels in October 2014.
Kohina Ichimatsu is a little girl who summons a Kokkuri-san, a lower-ranking ghost in Japanese folklore. The Kokkuri-san she calls ends up being a white-haired handsome, young man. Although he had intended to merely haunt her at first, he becomes worried about her terrible eating habit of cup ramen for every meal, so he decides to haunt her in order to protect her. To complicate matters, Kohina's doting dog spirit, Inugami, and no-good tanuki, Shigaraki, join them.
The anime will star:
Yoshimasa Hiraike (Working!!, Amagami SS) will direct the anime at TMS Entertainment (Yowamushi Pedal, Brave10). Miwa Oshima (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, GJ Club) will design the characters.
Endō began the manga in 2011, and Square Enix shipped the sixth compiled volume in Japan in March.
