The anime adaptation of Re-Kan! has been a mild one in terms of promotion of its production, but now the first promotional video for it has arrived after we got a new key visual and premiere date earlier this week. The show will make its debut on TBS and CBC on April 2nd with it following on other broadcasters and satellite on the 3rd, 5th and 11th. It doesn’t have a big range of broadcasters it’s working with just yet though, but we could see the show hitting other regions later in the year.
As we often see when stepping up from drama CDs to anime properties, the cast often stays the same but sometimes there are changes. It was previously announced that Ibuki Kido is taking on the role of Hibiki Amami, which was played by Aya Endo on the drama CDs. The rest of the cast is new as well with Miku Itou as Narumi Inoue, Erii Yamazaki as Ogawa, Riho Iida as Uehara and M・A・O as Esumi. Additional casting came recently with Yoshihisa Kawahara as Daihen-zamurai, Mikako Izawa as Hanako-san, Kujira as Ero-neko, Eriko Matsui as Merry-san, Aya Uchida as Kogal Spirit and Futaba Kino as Faceless Spirit.
Announced back in August as getting the green light, the property is a four panel manga by Hinako Seta that began as a one-shot back in 2009 before going into a full series in 2010, which in turn has spawned five compilations so far. The anime adaptation is scheduled for a spring 2015 debut. It’ll be directed by Masashi Kudo based on scripts by Takashi Aoshima with character designs done by Aoi Yamamoto at Pierrot Plus.
Plot concept: Amami Hibiki is a girl who can see ghosts and other supernatural phenomena in her surroundings. The stories follow her daily life with both her friends and the otherworldly.
