The official website for the television anime adaptation of author Shiori Ōta and illustrator Tetsuo's mystery light novel series A Corpse is Buried Under Sakurako's Feet (Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru) revealed on Friday that the series will premiere this fall.
The website also revealed the show's first key visual.
Additionally, the website revealed the show's staff. Makoto Katō (episode director for Aldnoah.Zero, Btooom!, Servant × Service) is directing the series at studio Troyca (both seasons of Aldnoah.Zero). Makoto Bessho (episode director for Attack on Titan, Death Note) is serving as assistant director, Takayo Ikami (Yurikuma Arashi, Penguindrum) is handling the series composition, and Michio Sato (Viper's Creed, Tenchi Muyo! GXP) is serving as both character designer and chief animation director.
The novel series revolves around Shōtarō Tatewaki and Sakurako Kujyō. Shōtarō is a normal high school student with a serious demeanor who likes to show off his girlfriend Sakurako. Sakurako is an extraordinarily beautiful woman in her mid-20s from a rich family who loves "beautiful bones." The two live in the city of Asahikawa in Hokkaido, and they get involved in various incidents regarding bones.
Ōta and Tetsuo debuted the series in 2013, and Kadokawa published the seventh novel in February. The series currently has more than 600,000 copies in print.
The light novel series has already inspired an online radio drama that starred Yuuki Kaji as Shōtarō and Ami Koshimizu as Sakurako.
