The official website for the television anime of Kazuhiro Fujita's Karakuri Circus (Le Cirque de Karakuri) manga revealed the artists for the anime's new theme songs on Friday. KANA-BOON performs the new opening song "Haguruma" (Gear), while Memai Siren performs the new ending song "Yūdachi" (Evening Rain). The site is streaming a new promotional video that previews the new opening song.
The anime premiered on Amazon in Japan on October 10, and on television on Tokyo MX on October 11. Amazon Prime is exclusively streaming the anime in Japan and overseas.
The story centers on Masaru Saiga, a fifth-grade boy who aims to become a puppeteer. After Sadayoshi Saiga — the CEO of the giant home telephone maker Saiga and Masaru's father — passes away, Masaru inherits 18 billion yen. Masaru is targeted for his wealth and is saved by two people. Narumi Katō is a man who has studied Kung-Fu and has a weird illness called "Zonapha Syndrome," and Shirogane is a silver-haired woman who controls the puppet "Arurukan" (Harlequin). Together, Masaru, Narumi, and Shirogane get thrown into various conspiracies by those who would try to steal Masaru's fortune.
