Tokyo ESP Anime’s 1st TV Ad Streamed

Anime of Hajime Segawa‘s science fantasy manga to premiere on July 11


The official website for the Tokyo ESP anime began streaming an ad for the series on Friday.

Hajime Segawa‘s original science fantasy manga begins with Rinka (Ibuki Kido), an extremely poor high school girl who lives with just her father in modern Tokyo. One day, she is going home from school when she chases a “flying penguin” to the top of New Tokyo Tower — only to have “fish swimming in the air” suddenly appear before her. One of the fish goes through Rinka and gives her extraordinary powers beyond those of normal humans, particularly the ability to slip through solid objects. The singer Faylan will perform the opening theme song “Tokyo Zero Hearts,” while the group Yousei Teikoku will perform the ending theme song, “Guze Άργυρóϛ.” The cast includes: Ibuki Kido as Rinka Urushiba Keisuke Koumoto as Kyōtarō Azuma Sachika Misawa as Minami Azuma Azusa Tadokoro as Murasaki Edoyama Megumi Ogata as Ayumu Ohzora Mai Aizawa as Kobushi Kuroi (“Black Fist”) Tetsu Inada as Rindō Urushiba Kaoru Mizuhara as Peggi Yoshihisa Kawahara as Professor Hiromi Konno as Kozuki Kuroi Yoshito Yasuhara as Nabeshima Kazuhiko Inoue as Elder Yōdani Jouji Nakata as Committee Head Edoyama Tesshô Genda as Hotokeda Masashi Ebara as Shin Kakuno Mugihito as Sukesaburō Fuyuka Oura as Reia Ōzora The staff list is as follows: Planning: Takeshi Yasuda Director: Shigehito Takayanagi (Galaxy Angel A, The World God Only Knows) General Producer: Gō Kikuchi Series Composition: Hideyuki Kurata (Dragon Crisis!)
