Kokkuri-san (繰繰れ！コックリさん) which begun airing earlier this week in Japan. Simulcasting / VOD Streaming is set to begin shortly, with a home video release to follow, likely in 2015 or 2016.
This dark comedy series from original creator Midori Endo is directed by Yoshimasa Hiraike (Wagnaria!!, AKB0048) with character designs by Miwa Oshima (Koihime Muso, Baka and Test – Summon the Beasts) and animation production by TMS Entertainment (Yowamushi Pedal, Hamtaro).
Enter Ichimatsu Kohina— an unusual young girl with an even more unusual diet. Living off of nothing but cup ramen, the emotionally-detached Kohina spends her spare time attempting to summon ghosts in her giant home. But when Kohina actually does manage to summon a spirit, she finds herself face-to-face with a handsome young fox ghost named Kokkuri. Although Kohina wants nothing to do with this white-haired weirdo, this determined ghost refuses to take “no” for an answer. And when Kokkuri witnesses Kohina’s deplorable dietary decisions, he has no choice but to go from haunting her to taking care of her! But where there’s one ghost more are sure to follow, and soon Kohina goes from living alone to living with an assortment of handsome supernatural entities. Underestimating his powers and undermining his authority as her new caretaker, a new life is about to begin for a strange girl and a fox ghost in GUGURE! KOKKURI-SAN!!!
