A Centaur's Life Anime Reveals Visuals, More Staff

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Sakae Shibuya is general animation director, character designer

The official website for the anime adaptation of Kei Murayama's A Centaur's Life (Centaur no Nayami or Centaur's Worries) manga revealed a new key visual, character designs for the three main characters, and more staff on Monday. The television anime will air on Tokyo MX from July to September with 12 episodes.

Himeno Kimihara, a centaur girl. She has a gentle personality. She is at an age where she is anxious about the size of her chest and body.

Nozomi Gokuraku, a dragon girl. She is Himeno's friend with a rough personality. She lives in a karate dojo.

Kyōko Naraku, a horned girl. She is Himeno's friend who is always cool and composed. She is just like her older brother.

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. Sakae Shibuya (Guilty Crown, Etotama) is the general animation director and character designer. Touko Machida (Wake Up, Girls!, Show By Rock!!#) is in charge of series composition.

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 in December. Seven Seas Entertainment published the manga's 11th volume in March.
