A new promotional video of the anime adaptation of Touya Mikanagi’s fantasy manga Karneval has been released. The video introduces more characters and is narrated by Aya Endo (Tsukumo) and Mamoru Miyano (Yogi). The series is set to be released in spring 2013.
The anime’s official website has also released artwork and further information for these characters.
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).
