The official website for smartphone game company Happy Elements' first original anime Phantom in the Twilight began streaming the series' first promotional video on Wednesday.

The series is being developed in Japan and China, and it is slated to premiere in Japan on Tokyo MX and BS Fuji in July.

Kunihiro Mori (Mars Daybreak) is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS. 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. Z-Ton (Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon) is handling the creature design.

The cast includes (Note: Name romanizations are not confirmed):

Kana Hanazawa as Bayrou Ton


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 launched a manga set before the anime's story on LINE Manga on March 25.

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.
