The official website of the Kami-sama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama (God Apprentices: Secretive Cocotama) television anime began streaming a promotional video for a "new series" for the anime on Friday. The new series premieres on April 6 with a new time slot of 5:55 on Thursdays on TV Tokyo.
The Kami-sama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama anime series premiered on TV Tokyo in October 2015 and is currently running. The franchise also includes a popular line of toys and a free smartphone app.
In the franchise, "Cocotama" are tiny gods born from the thoughts and feelings of objects that people use with great care. The fact that Cocotama wear part of the egg they hatch out of as underwear is proof that they are still apprentices. The Cocotama use a mysterious magic, and they train hard to be of use to humans and to become full gods. They live inside human houses and stealthily move around to help humans find things they have lost, although they make many mistakes.
The franchise is getting an upcoming anime film titled Eiga Kami-sama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama: Kiseki o Okose ♪ Teppuru to Dokidoki Cocotama Kai (God Apprentices: Secretive Cocotama Movie: Make a Miracle ♪ Teppuru and the Heart-Pounding Cocotama World).
The film opens in Japan on April 28.
The Eiga Tamagotchi: Himitsu no Otodake Daisakusen (Tamagotchi the Movie: Great Secret Delivery Strategy) anime short will screen alongside the movie.
