Kazushige Yusa directs anime shorts at Monsters Egg

Shogakukan began streaming a promotional video on June 18 to reveal that it is producing an anime series of shorts titled Odoru Mowai-kun that will premiere on TV Tokyo on July 2. The anime will air within the Oha-Suta program's "Kyara-Suta" corner at 7:05 a.m.

The show's Twitter account also began streaming another promotional video on Monday.

Kazushige Yusa (Midnight Crazy Trail) is directing the series at Monsters Egg. The company Kuon is credited with the original work.

The anime centers on a Moai statue named Mowai-kun who is gloomy every day because it lives a dull life where it just watches the beach and the sun from atop a hill on an island. But one day Mowai-kun grows arms, and starts to dance.

The anime replace the I'm From Japan anime, which began airing in that "Kyara Suta" programming corner on April 8.
