A desperate love comedy for a high school boy who turns into a costume is turned into a TV anime!
It has been announced that the spring animation "Grapenir" will be broadcast on TOKYO MX and other locations from April 5, 2020. In addition, the latest PV and preceding cut were also released.
"Grapenier" is a TV animation based on manga of the same name serialized by Takeda Sun in "Young Magazine Third" (Kodansha). Up to seven volumes of the original comic have been published, and the series has exceeded 300,000 copies in total.
Shuichi Kagaya (CV. Natsuki Hanae), a high school boy who has the ability to transform into a costume, was living a peaceful life while keeping it secret. However, it is a "Love Comedy of Life" work where she meets a mysterious girl, Beni Ai (CV. Nao Higashiyama) and gets involved in an unexpected struggle.
The director of this work is Kazuhiro Yoneda, who worked on "Onitsu no Retsutetsu" and others. Shinichi Inozume is responsible for the series composition, Takahiro Kishida is responsible for character design, and PINE JAM is in charge of animation production.
The latest PV has also been released. In the PV, you can hear the voices of Natsuki Hanae who plays the role of Shuichi Kagaya and Nao Higashiyama who plays the role of Beni. Although the video has a killing atmosphere just because it is titled "Love Comedy of Life", the beautiful image and the powerful battle scene foresee the future of the story.
Preceding cut release!
In addition, a leading cut has also arrived. You can see not only the hero, Shuichi Kagaya, but also the visuals of the costume that he transforms into.
