Modern fantasy anime premieres in April

Voice actor Shun'ichi Toki announced on his Twitter account on Friday that he will perform the ending theme song "Yakusoku no Overture" (The Promised Overture) for the television anime adaptation of Yōko Tamotsu's Mayonaka no Occult Kōmuin (Midnight Occult Civil Servants) manga. The song will be Toki's debut single.

The television anime will premiere in April. The show stars:

Tetsuya Watanabe (Rumbling Hearts, Strain: Strategic Armored Infantry, Schwarzes Marken) is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS. Tatsuto Higuchi (CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon, Schwarzes Marken, My-Otome) is in charge of series composition. Eriko Itō (Hamatora, Danchigai, Love and Lies) is designing the characters.

Voice actor Jun Fukuyama will perform the opening theme song "dis-communicate" for the anime. The single for the song marks Fukuyama's first single tie-up with an anime.

The modern fantasy manga centers on Arata Miyako, a new government worker assigned to the Shinjuku Ward Office's "Nighttime Regional Relations" department. Each of Tokyo's 23 wards has one such department, which were established to solve paranormal and occult-related events. Arata can understand non-human speech that no one else understands, and he encounters a yōkai (supernatural entity) at Shinjuku Gyoen park that calls him Abe no Seimei — the name of a historical Japanese occultist and diviner.

Tamotsu launched the manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Asuka magazine in May 2015, and the manga also runs on Kadokawa's Comic Newtype website. Kadokawa published the manga's ninth compiled book volume on December 22. The manga also inspired a novelization by Masumi Suzuki that the Kadokawa Horror Bunko label published on July 25.
