(director of The Twelve Kingdoms) with series story composition by Reiko Yoshida, and
character designs and animation direction by Hiroyuki Nishimura (Fatal Fury, Full Metal

being and reside in hiding in places known as the “Pure Place” in tribes. They are called the Tera

Keita and a young Tera Guardian girl named Kuro...

Kurokami (The Animation) will be released on DVD later this year from Bandai Entertainment
