The September issue of Square Enix's G Fantasy magazine revealed on Tuesday that manga creator Samako Natsu will launch a manga for the Dance with Devils project in the magazine's next issue on September 18. The manga is titled Dance with Devils -Blight-.

The magazine notes that the manga will tell an original story, different from that of the upcoming anime. Anime scriptwriter Rika Nakase (Rocket Girls, Junjō Romantica) is credited for story composition. Game developer Rejet's Hirotaka Maeda provided the original character designs.

The anime's official website previously streamed a promotional video for the anime.

The anime will premiere in October. Game developer Rejet, music production studio Elements Garden, and music production company Avex announced the project in February.

The story revolves around Ritsuka Tachibana, a female second-year high school student who attends Shiko Academy in Shiko Town. She enjoyed her school life while living with her mother Maria, but one day, that balance fell into ruin. The anime is a story of Ritsuka being loved and being attracted to demons.

The voice cast for the anime includes:


Himika Akaneya as 16-year-old second-year high school student Ritsuka Tachibana. She is an utterly ordinary girl who lives with her mother.


Sōma Saitō (Mysterious Joker, Haikyu!!) as Rem Kaginuki, a young man who is the president of Shikō Academy, but is in fact a devil. He has a hard-working personality, but also has a cool personality.


Wataru Hatano (Hamatora, Yumeria) as Lind Tachibana, a third-year in high school and the heroine Rikka's elder brother. He is an exorcist who hunts devils, and has a cool and stoic personality.


Takashi Kondo (Black Cat, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream) as Urie Sogami, a devil and the vice president of Shikō Academy. He is an elite dream devil who is known by people all throughout the devil world, and is very popular with the ladies.


Subaru Kimura (Penguindrum, Doraemon) as Mage Nanashiro, a devil and the secretary of the Shikō Academy student council. A confident and self-centered young man, he lives impulsively.


Daisuke Hirakawa (Blue Spring Ride, Hiiro no Kakera - The Tamayori Princess Saga) as Shiki Natsumezaka, a fallen angel and the treasurer of the Shikō Academy student council. He is a strange person even within the academy, and is always aloof.

Ai Yoshimura (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, Blue Spring Ride) is directing the anime at Brains Base (Natsume's Book of Friends, One Week Friends). Tomoko Konparu (Uta no Prince-sama - Maji Love 1000%,Blue Spring Ride) is in charge of the series scripts based on the original concept by Rejet's Daisuke Iwasaki and the original story by Grimoire Henshūshitsu. Elements Garden is composing the music, and Elements Garden's Junpei Fujita and DIVE II Entertainment are producing the music. Rejet's Hirotaka Maeda provided the original character designs, and Yuka Takashina is adapting those designs for the anime.

Wataru Hatano performs the anime's opening theme song "Kakusei no Air," while Pentacle★, a unit composed of the main voice actors Sōma Saitō, Hatano, Takashi Kondo, Subaru Kimura, and Daisuke Hirakawa, is performing the ending theme song "Mademo★iselle."
