posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Bandai Namco Arts revealed on Thursday that Yoshino Origuchi's Monster Girl Doctor (Monster Musume no Oisha-san) light novel series is inspiring a television anime that will premiere in 2020.
Yoshiaki Iwasaki (We Never Learn: BOKUBEN, The Familiar of Zero, Last Period: the journey to the end of the despair) is directing the anime at Arvo Animation (We Never Learn: BOKUBEN). Hideki Shirane (Date a Live, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) is in charge of series composition. Hiromi Kato (Kobato., Chain Chronicle, ID-0) is designing the characters. TO-MAS is composing the music.
Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the novels in English, and it describes the story, which is "endorsed by OKAYADO," the author of the Monster Musume manga:
In the town of Lindworm where monsters and humans coexist, Dr. Glenn runs an exemplary medical clinic for monster girls with his lamia assistant, Sapphee. Whether receiving a marriage proposal by a centaur injured in battle, palpating the injury of a mermaid, or suturing the delicate wounds of a flesh golem, Dr. Glenn performs his job with grace and confidence. But when an unsavory character seeks to steal a harpy egg, how will the unflappable Dr. Glenn respond...?
Yoshino writes the series and Z-ton, one of the artists featured in the Monster Musume: I ♥ Monster Girls anthology, provides the illustrations. Shueisha published the sixth volume on July 25, and will publish the seventh volume on November 22. Seven Seas Entertainment released the fourth volume on May 28.
