The first preview of the television anime adaptation of Touya Mikanagi’s Karneval manga has been released on the series’ official website. The series is set to be released in spring 2013.
The original manga follows Nai, a boy who is searching for someone important to him with only a bracelet as a clue. He ends up meeting a pickpocket called Gareki, and they find themselves part of a setup, becoming wanted criminals by military security operatives. The bracelet turns out to be an ID for the country’s most powerful defense organization, Circus.
Eiji Suganuma (Ninja Cadets, Sasameki Koto) will be directing the series at Manglobe (Deadman Wonderland, Hayate the Combat Butler: Can’t Take My Eyes Off You).
