posted on by Egan Loo
Series to premiere on January 23 in Japan; Crunchyroll to announce new manga by February

Media service Crunchyroll announced at its Anime Los Angeles panel on Saturday that it licensed the Isuca anime. The action series will premiere on January 23, and Crunchyroll will announce its streaming schedule and regional availability in the future. Crunchyroll also added that it will make a number of new manga announcements between late January and February.

The story of Osamu Takahashi's Isuca 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 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

Akane Kohinata as Matsuri Sōma

Saeko Zōgō (Chaika - The Coffin Princess, Date A Live II) as Nadeshiko Sōma

Ayumi Fujimura (Squid Girl) as Isuca

Akira Iwanaga (Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee) will direct the anime at ARMS (Himawari!!, Ikki Tousen: Dragon Destiny) with series composition by Masashi Suzuki (Kanokon: The Girl Who Cried Fox, The Sacred Blacksmith). Two-Formula will perform the ending theme.

Madman Entertainment licensed the series in Australia.
