posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the anime of Hiroaki Mizusaki's Miss Kuroitsu From the Monster Development Department (Kaijin Kaihatsubu no Kuroitsu-san) manga revealed on Tuesday that the anime's second episode will air on January 22 and the third episode will air on January 29.
The anime's second episode was originally scheduled to air on January 15 but the broadcast was canceled. The official website did not explain the reason for the cancellation, but the episode was slated to air around the time many television stations preempted their programming with special news bulletins after a tsunami warning was issued for parts of the country after an underwater volcano in the South Pacific island nation of Tonga erupted on Saturday.
Kaori Maeda voices protagonist Tōka Kuroitsu, while Satomi Amano voices Wolf Bate. Yuichiro Umehara voices Professor Sadamaki. The anime features different famous "hero actors" as narrators for each episode, with each new actor revealed during airing as episode synopses go up on the anime's official website. In addition, real-life Japanese "local heroes" (regional stage actors who play characters modeled after tokusatsu heroes) will also appear as characters in the anime.
Hisashi Saito (Haganai, The Testament of Sister New Devil, Heaven's Lost Property) is directing the anime at Quad. Katsuhiko Takayama (Ga-Rei: Zero, And Yet the Town Moves, Aldnoah.Zero) is in charge of the series scripts. Kazuya Morimae (Haganai, The Testament of Sister New Devil animation director) is designing the characters for animation.
The manga centers on Kuroitsu, an assistant researcher in the superhuman research & development department of Agastya, a villainous secret organization that battles with heroes who try to save the world. Kuroitsu lives a busy life in Agastya, caught between the absurd requests of her bosses; making presentations; implementing new features into superhumans; and getting results within the allotted time, budget, and spec requests; all without vacation.
