posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Series adapting Midori Endō's comedy manga premiered earlier this month

The November issue of Square Enix's Gangan Joker magazine is announcing that Kousuke Toriumi (Sailor Moon Crystal's Nephrite, Prétear's Hayate) will join the cast of the television anime adaptation of Midori Endō's Gugure! Kokkuri-san manga. Toriumi's role will be a Tengu who loves jokes.

The anime also stars:

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.

The first episode premiered on Sunday, October 5 on Crunchyroll, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for North America.

Crunchyroll describes the story:

Gugure! Kokkuri-san revolves around the daily life of a little girl named Ichimatsu Kohina and Kokkuri-san, a handsome low level fox ghost with long white hair who she accidently summoned. At first the fox ghost only intended to haunt her but got worried about her living all alone and devotes himself to do chores as if he was her mother. Other ghosts, including the dog ghost Inugami who is infatuated with Kohina and the old good-for-nothing supernatural raccoon Shigaraki, decide to follow her as well!
