The official website for the television anime of Kyo Shirodaira and Chasiba Katase‘s In/Spectre (Kyokō Suiri or Invented Interface) manga has posted a teaser promotional video and teaser visual for the second season.
In/Spectre’s first season was full of different cases concerning yokai while our protagonists, Kotoko and Kuro, were busy tracking down every anomaly. Investigating these supernatural events was certainly not easy but our protagonists put up a good job.
PROMO VIDEO & VISUAL
The video previews for the first time footage from the new season which will premiere in 2022. Although the trailer does not betray any scenes from “Season Two”, it does show some pretty cool moments between Kotoko and Kuro. We already know that there will be a lot of new mysteries to keep Kotoko and Kuro busy.
Kotoko and Kuro’s relationship will progress from their combat duo status. A new antagonist will also arise in the upcoming season.
A new visual (below) has been revealed where both the protagonists are shown surrounded by various types of yokai.
“Season Two” of the anime will adapt the storyline from volume seven onwards of the manga. The original light novel still has enough content to be adapted. While Kotoko and Kuro are busy solving various yokai cases, they will soon be sucked into a mystery surrounding Rikka.
Keiji Gotoh (Kiddy Grade, Endride, Sengoku Collection) is returning to direct the second season of the anime at Brains Base, and Noboru Takagi (Durarara!!, Golden Kamuy, Kuroko’s Basketball) is again in charge of the series scripts.
Kentarou Matsumoto (D-Frag!, animation director for In/Spectre season 1) is the character designer and chief animation director.
NAS is producing the project.
Kodansha describes the series as thus:
When she was still just a girl, Kotoko was kidnapped by yokai. These spirits made her into a powerful intermediary between the spirit and human worlds, but this power came at a price: an eye and a leg. Now, years later, she watches out for dangerous yokai while developing feelings for a young man named Kuro, who is also special: an incident with a yokai has given him healing powers. He’s surprised when Kotoko asks him to team up to handle renegade yokai, preserving the thin line between reality and the supernatural.
Katase launched the manga based on a 2011 novel by Shirodaira (Spiral, The Record of a Fallen Vampire, Blast of Tempest) in Kodansha‘s Shōnen Magazine R in April 2015.
