Crunchyroll will stream the new anime AYAKA later this year which is a paranormal story of friendship and dragons.
AYAKA is directed by Nobuyoshi Nagayama (Happy Sugar Life) at Studio Blanc and animated by Misaki Kaneko (Smile Down the Runway) with scripts by GoRA and original character designs by redjuice (Guilty Crown).
This particular trailer introduces two new characters. There’s Chatarou Fukuwake, the guy in glasses who is voiced by Black Clover’s Asta actor Gakuto Kajiwara. I can’t unsee that now.
There’s also the (sometimes) polite Yako Amano voiced by Yuki Sakakihara (Dead Mount Death Play).
Crunchyroll describe the series;
The story follows Yukito Yanagi, an orphan who one day encounters an eccentric disciple of his father’s. The strange man takes him to his birthplace on Ayakajima, made up of seven islands where mysterious beings called “Mitama” and dragons are rumored to reside. There, Yukito meets his father’s two other disciples, who protect the harmony of Ayakajima… which soon threatens to collapse.
As well as the two new characters, the trailer is a better look at the land of Akayakima than we’ve had before.
