Japanese retailer Mangaoh is listing an original anime Blu-ray Disc bundled with Osamu Takahashi's seventh Isuca manga volume on August 26, 2015.
The story of Osamu Takahashi's action manga revolves around Shinichirō, a male student who gets a job as a housekeeper in order to pay his rent. While on the job, he accidentally releases a strange creature into the world, and he learns that his female employer named Sakuya Shimazu is the head of the Shimazu clan that hunts these creatures. Shinichirō cooperates with her to hunt down the monsters that are running loose.
The manga is already inspiring a television anime that will premiere on January 23. The cast includes Ibuki Kido (Tokyo ESP) as Sakuya Shimazu, Keisuke Koumoto (Tokyo ESP) as Shinichirō Asano, M.A.O (Ai Tenchi Muyo!, World Conquest Zvezda Plot) as Suseri Shimazu, Kaori Sadohara (Inari Kon Kon, Date A Live) as Tamako, and Ayumi Fujimura (Squid Girl) as Isuca.
Akira Iwanaga (Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee) will direct the television anime at ARMS (Himawari!!, Ikki Tousen: Dragon Destiny) with series composition by Masashi Suzuki (Kanokon: The Girl Who Cried Fox, The Sacred Blacksmith). Idol group Afilia Saga (My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy, Hyperdimension Neptunia) will perform the opening theme song, and Two-Formula will perform the ending theme.
