Media Factory began streaming a new 30-second TV spot for the upcoming television anime adapatation of Midori Endō's Gugure! Kokkuri-san manga on Monday. Yukari Tamura narrates the video.
Tamura: The self-proclaimed doll Hina summoned the Kokkuri-san. Kokkuri-san, worried about Kohina, latches onto her, but is toyed with by her. The dog ghost Inugami and the transformed tanuki Shiragaki end up living there as well, and so the Kokkuri-san's troubles are tripled. A girl who sees ghosts, sometimes handsome guys, and sometimes cute animals! A not-so-everyday-life fluffy comedy! TV anime Gugure! Kokkuri-san, starting broadcasts on Sunday, October 5 at 1:05 a.m.
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
