Daisuke Ono to Perform Gugure! Kokkuri-san's Opening Song
posted on by Kyle Cardine
The official website for the anime adaptation of Midori Endō's Gugure! Kokkuri-san manga announced on Friday that Daisuke Ono will perform the opening theme song "Welcome!! DISCO Kemokemoke" as Kokkuri-san. Takahiro Sakurai and Jouji Nakata will contribute spoken lines to the song as their characters Inugami and Shigaraki.
In the anime's story, 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:
Endō launched the manga in 2011, and Square Enix shipped the sixth compiled volume in Japan in March.
The anime will premiere in Japan in October.
