The official website for the Happy Elements smartphone game company's first original anime Phantom in the Twilight announced on Friday that the anime's Japanese Blu-ray Disc release has been cancelled "due to various circumstances." Before the announcement, the anime was slated to have four monthly Blu-ray Disc volumes that would have shipped from November 2018 to February 2019. The staff is offering a consolation gift by postal mail to people who had pre-ordered the Blu-ray Discs.
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 (AntiMagic Academy "The 35th Test Platoon") is handling the creature design.
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.
