Romance about a girl and devils premieres October 7

Game developer Rejet began streaming 15-second television commercial for the Dance with Devils television anime on Tuesday. The video features the opening theme song "Kakusei no Air" by Wataru Hatano, the voice of Lind.

The show will premiere on Tokyo MX on October 7 at 11:30. The series will also air on Sun TV and BS Fuji. Funimation Entertainment will stream the series in North America.

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 cast includes:

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.

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

Risae Matsuda as Azuna Kuzuha (not pictured), Ritsuka's schoolmate and close friend

Hibiku Yamamura as Maria Tachibana (not pictured), Ritsuka and Lind's mother

Kazutomi Yamamoto as Roen, the Kagenuki family's Pomeranian who follows Rem around a lot, especially to the 3rd library.

Yuuto Suzuki as Jek, a mysterious man who attacks Ritsuka. It seems as though he is searching for the "Prohibited Grimoire."

Tatsuhisa Suzuki as an unnamed character who is the only person not a member of the student council who goes in and out of the 3rd library freely.

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.

Samako Natsu also launched a manga for the project titled Dance with Devils -Blight- in Square Enix's G Fantasy magazine on September 18. It tells an original story different from that of the anime. Anime scriptwriter Rika Nakase (Rocket Girls, Junjō Romantica) is credited for story composition.
