The official website for the television anime of Rin Asano's Deaimon manga revealed a new visual and the anime's April premiere date on Friday.

The site also unveiled the designs for two more characters:

Rikiya Koyama as Heigo Irino

Sayaka Ohara as Fuki Irino

The manga's story centers on Nagomu, a man who left his home in Kyoto and his family's confectionary shop when he became a musician. Upon hearing that his father has been hospitalized though, he comes back home to take over the family business. However, while he was gone, a young girl named Itsuka started working at the shop. The whereabouts of Itsuka's parents is unknown, and she has no other relatives, and Nagomu finds himself as foster parent for Itsuka. Itsuka, on the other hand, dislikes Nagomu for abandoning the family to become a musician. She proclaims that it will be her who will take over the shop one day instead of Nagomu.
