Smartphone game company Happy Elements (Ensemble Stars) announced its first original anime Phantom in the Twilight on Sunday. The series will be developed in Japan and China, and is slated to premiere in Japan in July on Tokyo MX and BS Fuji.

Fumiaki Maruto (How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, Classroom Crisis) and Shunsaku Yano are handling the series composition. Maruto is also credited with the original story and Yano is also credited with the world setting. Hidari (Fire Emblem Echoes -Shadows of Valencia-) is designing the characters, and Megumi Yamashita is adapting the designs for animation. Kunihiro Mori (Mars Daybreak) is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS. Z-Ton (Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon) is handling the creature design.

Takahiro Sakurai as Vlad Garfunkel


Nobuhiko Okamoto as Luke Bowen


Tomokazu Sugita as Tōryū


Daiki Yamashita as Wayne King

The story takes place in London at Café Forbidden, a mysterious café that only opens at night. The protagonist is a girl who is in London to study abroad. She meets the handsome men who work this place where the guardians of the boundary between the human and shadow world gather.

Haruta Mayuzumi is launching a manga on LINE Manga on Sunday.

Happy Elements announced an anime adaptation for Ensemble Stars in 2015, but the project was postponed. The company announced last month that it is relaunching the project.
