posted on by Egan Loo
The voice actress unit TrySail announced on Sunday that they are performing the opening theme song for the television anime of Petosu's comedy manga Interviews with Monster Girls (Demi-chan wa Kataritai). The three unit members made the announcement at the first performance of their 1st live concert tour.
The opening theme song is titled "Original." Clammbon band guitarist's Mito composed the new song, and prolific scriptwriter Mari Okada penned the lyrics, just as she did for songs in Aquarion Evol and CANAAN.
The CD will go on sale on February 8 in three versions: a limited first pressing edtion, a limited-time pressing edition, and a regular edition. The limited-time pressing edition will feature a jacket illustration by the anime's character designer Tetsuya Kawakami and a DVD with the anime's clean opening animation sequence.
Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:
Monsters of legend walk among us, going by the name “demi-humans.” Ever since he's discovered the “demis,” one young man has become obsessed with them. So when he gets a job as a teacher at a high school for demi-girls, it's a dream come true! But these demis, who include a rambunctious vampire, a bashful headless girl, and a succubus, have all the problems normal teenagers have, on top of their supernatural conditions. How to handle a classroom full of them?!
The characters include:
Voice actor Junichi Suwabe as the character Tetsuo Takahashi, a biology teacher
Hikari Takanashi the vampire
Kyōko Machi the dullahan
Yuki Kusakabe the snow woman
Sakie Satō the succubus
Himari Takanashi the human twin sister of Hikari
The anime will premiere in January and will air on Tokyo MX, MBS, and BS11.
