Crunchyroll continues to build its lineup for the fall 2014 anime season and the latest show to make the schedule is Gugure! Kokkuri-san. The series is scheduled to debut on October 5th, at 3:05 PM Easter Time with new episodes following weekly on Sunday’s. The series is available to premium members right awhile while free members will get it a week later. Availability for the series is certainly decent as it’s open to audiences in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Latin America.
The series will be animated at TMS Entertainment with Yoshimasa Hiraike directing while Miwa Oshima will handle the character designs. The four panel manga has been running for a few years with five volumes having been released so far.
Gugure! Kokkuri-san stars Ryou Hirohashi as Kohina Ichmatsu, Daisuke Ono as Kokkuri-san, Takahiro Sakurai as Inugami, Jouji Nakata as Jigaraki, Yukana as Tama, Hisako Kanemoto as Jime-ko, Kazutomi Yamamoto as Yamamoto-kun, and Yukari Tamura as the narrator.
Plot concept: Not your everyday life fluffy comedy! Based on the original four panel comic by Midori Endo, Gugure! Kokkuri-san revolves around the daily life of a little girl named Ichimatsu Kohina and Kokkuri-san, a handsome low level fox ghost with long white hair who she accidently summoned. At first the fox ghost only intended to haunt her but got worried about her living all alone and devotes himself to do chores as if he was her mother. Other ghosts, including the dog ghost Inugami who is infatuated with Kohina and the old good-for-nothing supernatural raccoon Shigaraki, decide to follow her as well!
