The official website for Studio 3Hz's original anime series Blackfox began streaming a second promotional video for the anime on Friday. The video reveals the show's three main cast members. The site also revealed character designs and descriptions, the show's story, and two more visuals.

The show stars: (Note: character descriptions in English are from the anime's official website)

Ayaka Nanase as Rikka Isurugi. Born into the Isurugi ninja clan. Though she is expected to succeed her grandfather as the head of the clan, she looks up to her father very much and wishes to follow in his footsteps to become a researcher.

Haruka Tomatsu as Mia. A powerful psychic with a sharp mind and is skillful in chess.

Yō Taichi as Melissa. Rikka's roommate. She takes cares of all the chores while Rikka makes a living to support the both of them.

The Girl in the Fox Mask. A mysterious figure who wears a fox mask. She appears in the streets in the dead of the night dressed in all black and is often the talk of the town.

The official website describes the anime's story in English:

Carrying on with her life normally, Rikka's home came suddenly under attack one day. Driven into a corner, what would she do to overcome this crisis?
Rip darkness to pieces and become "BLACK"!
