The four-episode mini-series will premiere on Toonami this year, before it will premiere in Japan. Hiroshi Nagahama (Mushi-Shi) is directing the mini-series at Production I.G, and Colin Stetson (Hereditary) is composing the music.
The 1998-1999 manga follows the inhabitants of a town where strange occurrences related to a spiral shape began occurring one after another. Viz Media originally released the manga in three collected volumes from 2007-2008, and later released an omnibus edition.
The manga inspired a live-action horror film starring Eriko Hatsune and Fan Fhi in 2000.
