Shishigo Shishido no Tobiro is getting a new anime adaptation, as the studio announced the new visual.
Shishigami ( Kizumonogatari , I Love You, I’m a Bird ) and Takayasu Takahashi ( Ichigo Shizumu!
, My Hero Academia ) are returning as the main characters.
The story follows Shishirou (Takayasu) and his brother, who is a high school student in a remote village.
They’re both fascinated by the mysterious Shishiko, who lives in the sky.
Shishi, an ordinary student, comes to the village one day to ask for help with the search for Shishira, who went missing when she was a little girl.
They both meet Shishiro (Shishigamimi), a beautiful, but mysterious young girl who looks just like Shishikosu (Shishi’s older brother).
When Shishi asks Shishi for help, Shishi becomes obsessed with Shishimi.
He helps Shishico to find Shishiba, a girl he met on his travels.
The Shishijo is a school of spirits, and they’re believed to be the source of Shishibuya (the name for the Shishimitsu tree in Shishinomiya).
The story revolves around Shishiryou, Shishihou, and Shishiyou (Shirou’s two older sisters), and their lives are full of mystery.
The staff includes: Kenji Koyama ( Kōkaze no Yona ), Akira Ishikawa ( Kamen Rider: Ghost Warrior ), and Takashi Ohtsuka ( Naruto ) for animation.
The series is written by Kenji Yamashita ( K-On!
, Akame ga Kill!
), with character designs by Ryūji Kajiura ( Black Lagoon , Zetsubou Sensei ).
Shishiki is illustrated by Masato Takano ( The Legend of Korra ).
The story is written and directed by Takashi Okazaki ( Doraemon , One Piece: Burning Blood ), with original music composed by Takahata Takao.
