Back in March, we learned in March that Karakuri Circus, the manga by Ushio and Tora’s Kazuhiro Fujita, is getting an anime adaptation.
Now we’ve got more details on that adaptation, including a cast list, trailer and a premiere month: this October.
Here’s the main cast:
- Chihiro Ueda as Masaru Saiga
- Ririya Koyama as Narumi Kato
- Megumi Hayashibara as Shirogane
- Takahiro Sakurai as Eiryo Ashihara
- Nozumu Sasaki as Gii Chrisoph Resh
The series will be directed by Satoshi Nishimura (who also did the recent Ushio and Tora adaptation) with some sweet-lookin’ old-school character designs by Takahiro Yoshimatsu (Trigun).
Our own Joseph Luster describes the original manga:
“The series follows fifth-grader Masaru Saiga, who wants to become a puppeteer. When his billionaire father passes away, though, Masaru inherits his fortune and is immediately targeted for his wealth. Kung fu practitioner Narumi Kato and puppet-controller Shirogane come to the rescue, and the three end up thrown into a series of situations thanks to their fortune-hunting adversaries.”
Here’s looking forward to joining the circus this October.
