The anime adaptation of the manga series Monster Musume is almost here and now TOHO has set to providing a bit more of the animation for folks to check out with two new preview spots. Ahead of the first episode debut, they’ve added the first two 15 second character spots to highlight the voice actresses as well as the animation and a taste of the music. The show has been given a July 8th, 2015 debut on Tokyo MX and rollout out to several other networks as well as satellite and streaming services.
Everyday Life with Monster Girls will be directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara based on the overall series composition and scripting by Kazuyuki Fueyasu. Tatsuya Sunagawa is doing double duty as the animation director and character designer and the series is going to be animated at Lerche and Seva.
The cast announced so far includes Sora Amamiya as Miia, Ami Koshimizu as Papi and Natsuki Aikawa as Centorea, Mayuka Nomura as Suu, Huruka Yamazaki as Meroune “Mero” Lorelei, Sakura Nakamura as Rachnera “Rachnee” Arachnera, Yuu Kobayashi as Ms. Smith and Junji Majima as Kurusu Kimihoto.
Seven Seas Entertainment is currently releasing the manga in North America and they’ve just released the sixth volume themselves recently, having caught up quickly to the Japanese release side overall.
Plot concept: Monsters—they’re real, and they want to date us! Three years ago, the world learned that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and all manners of fabulous creatures are not merely fiction; they are flesh and blood—not to mention scale, feather, horn, and fang. Thanks to the “Cultural Exchange Between Species Act,” these once-mythical creatures have assimilated into society, or at least, they’re trying.
When a hapless human named Kurusu Kimihito is inducted as a “volunteer” into the government exchange program, his world is turned upside down. A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu’s job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life. Unfortunately for Kurusu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what’s a full-blooded young man with raging hormones to do?!
