The official Twitter account for the television anime of Yako Gureishi's Somali and the Forest Spirit (Somali to Mori no Kamisama) manga revealed on Saturday that Inori Minase, who stars in the show as Somali, will perform the show's ending theme song.

The anime stars:

The anime will premiere in January, after a delay from this fall. Crunchyroll is co-producing the anime, and it will stream the series as it airs in Japan. Crunchyroll will also host the world premiere of the anime at Crunchyroll Expo on August 30.

Kenji Yasuda (Macross Delta, Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens) is directing the anime at Satelight (Aquarion, Macross Delta). Ikuko Ito (Princess Tutu, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan) is designing the characters.

The manga is set in a world ruled by spirits and monsters, and where humans are persecuted and driven to the brink of extinction. In a certain forest, a golem – the guardian of the forest – and a little girl meet. Their journey as surrogate father and daughter to each other begins.

Gureishi launched the manga on Tokuma Shoten's Web Comic Zenyon web manga site in April 2015.
