The official website for the television anime of Yuuri Eda's Kabukibu! light novel series revealed the anime's staff and April premiere window on Tuesday. The four-creator group CLAMP is drawing the original character designs, and the website presented a visual drawn by CLAMP:
The anime will premiere in April on the TBS and BS-TBS channels. Kazuhiro Yoneda (Yona of the Dawn, Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara.) is directing the anime at Studio Deen. Yoshiko Nakamura (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, Hiiro no Kakera - The Tamayori Princess Saga) is in charge of the series scripts, and Majiro (Barakamon, Macross Delta, Ongaku Shōjo) is adapting CLAMP's designs for animation.
The series revolves around Kurogo Kurusu, a high school student who loves kabuki so much that it's annoying. Kurogo yearns to perform kabuki as part of a club at his school, but currently his school doesn't have a kabuki club. So Kurogo sets out to create a kabuki club, and his first order of business is to gather members. Kadokawa will publish the novel's fifth volume on November 25.
