These cast members and Sukeno will attend this year's Jump Festa event in Chiba on December 19-20, and will appear on the "SQ. Stage" on both days.

Viz Media is publishing the series in North America, and it will publish the third compiled volume in January. The company describes the story:

Rokuro dreams of becoming anything but an exorcist! Then mysterious Benio turns up. The pair are dubbed the "Twin Star Exorcists" and learn they are fated to marry...
Can Rokuro escape both fates?
When Rokuro's best friend Ryogo goes missing, Rokuro is forced to ask Benio for help to enter Magano, the realm of the evil Kegare, to rescue him!

Studio Pierrot (Naruto, Tokyo Ghoul, Yona of the Dawn) is animating the series. Additionally, Wagakki Band will perform the show's theme song.

Sukeno (Binbogami ga!) launched the "new-generation onmyō (ancient Japanese occultism) fantasy" in Shueisha's Jump Square magazine in November 2013. Shueisha released the sixth compiled volume on September 4, and it will release the seventh volume on January 4.
