Another Fena PV has surfaced, this time appearing on Japanese TV, featuring a different music 🙂
The anime will air in Japanese TV on October 2021, so crunchyroll gets it soon.
Yuki Kajiura today has announced that she will be composing the music for the TV animeThe Case Study of Vanitas, adapted from a manga of the creator of Pandora Hearts, Jun Mochizuki.
The anime is produced by animation studio BONES, with Tomoyuki Itamura (Nisemonogatari, Owarimonogatari, Tsukimonogatari) as director, Yoshiyuki Ito as the character designer and chief animation director, Kazuhiro Wakabayashi as sound director.
Rumors revolving around The Book of Vanitas, a clockwork grimoire of dubious reputation, draw Noé, a young vampire in search of a friend’s salvation, to Paris. What awaits him in the City of Flowers, however, is not long hours treading the pavement or rifling through dusty bookshops in search of the tome. Instead, his quarry comes to him…in the arms of a man claiming to be a vampire doctor! Thrust into a conflict that threatens the peace between humans and vampires, will Noé cast in his lot with the curious and slightly unbalanced Vanitas and his quest to save vampirekind?
The anime will begin airing on japanese TV channels on July 3 (Saturday), 2021! Below you can see the PV:
