posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
A flyer from animation brand Haoliners' booth at this year's AnimeJapan 2017 event revealed on Thursday that the anime adaptation of Kei Murayama's A Centaur's Life (Centaur no Nayami or A Centaur's Worries) manga will be a television anime that will air on Tokyo MX from July to September with 12 episodes.
Fumitoshi Oizaki (AOKANA: Four Rhythm Across the Blue, Etotama) is the anime's general director, while Naoyuki Konno (togainu no chi - Bloody Curs) is directing the anime at Emon Animation Company.
Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga, and it describes the story:
Being a teenager is never easy...especially for a centaur! Himeno is a sweet, shy girl, who like many teens her age, struggles with the trials and tribulations of attending high school. The difference is she's a centaur; but she's not alone. In fact, all of her classmates are supernatural creatures, sporting either horns, wings, tails, halos, or some other unearthly body appendage. Yet despite their fantastical natures, Himeno and her best friends—the dragon-winged Nozomi, and Kyoko with her spiraled horns—are down-to-earth, fun- loving teenagers who grapple with issues of life and love in a mostly normal daily school setting.
Murayama began the ongoing series in Tokuma Shoten's Monthly Comic Ryū in 2010, and Tokuma Shoten published the manga's 14th compiled book volume (seen right) in December. Seven Seas Entertainment published the manga's 11th volume on Tuesday.
