The anime premieres in October 2022.
Gintama director Chizuru Miyawaki directs Kokyu no Karasu over at BN Pictures, with Satomi Oshima (Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko) writing the series composition and Shinji Takeuchi (FAIRY TAIL) designing the characters for animation.
The “Chinese Fantasy Tale” novel series follows Ryu Jusetsu who is a concubine to the ruling emperor but never summoned to perform her imperial duties, until one night the current emperor Koushun appears at the harem chambers with a haunted jade earring. Their encounter is set to unravel history as we know it.
The novels’ story centers on Uki, an imperial concubine who has never been called to the emperor’s bedchambers, and maintains a singularly unique life within the harem chambers. Seen by some as having the appearance of an old woman, and some others as a young lady, she is known to use mysterious magic that helps with everything from finding lost items to inflicting curses. When a circumstance makes the emperor call on her, their meeting will change history.
Main cast members are Saku Mizuno as Jusetsu Ryō, Masaaki Mizunaka as Kōshun Ka, Taku Yashiro as Eisei, and Marika Kōno as Jiujiu.
