Media Factory began streaming the third commercial for the television anime of Midori Endō's Gugure! Kokkuri-san manga on Monday. The character Shigaraki (as played by Jouji Nakata) narrates with the opening theme song "Welcome!! Disco Kemokemoke" in the background. Shigaraki reminds viewers that the "not-so-everyday-life fluffy comedy" will premiere on television this October.
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 stars:
Ryou Hirohashi (Working!!, Kaleido Star) as Kohina Ichimatsu
Daisuke Ono (Durarara!, Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil) as Kokkuri-san
Jouji Nakata (Fate/Zero, Sgt. Frog) as Shigaraki
Takahiro Sakurai (.hack//Roots, Noragami) as Inugami
Voice actress Yukari Tamura (Myself;Yourself, No-rin) is also starring in the series as the narrator.
Yoshimasa Hiraike (Working!!, Amagami SS) is directing the anime at TMS Entertainment (Yowamushi Pedal, Brave10). Miwa Oshima (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, GJ Club) is designing the characters.
Endō launched the manga in 2011, and Square Enix shipped the sixth compiled volume in Japan in March. The anime will premiere on October 5.
