Gugure! Kokkuri-san is an upcoming anime project by director Yoshimasa Hiraike and produced by TMS entertainment. It will begin in October 2014. The show will fall into the supernatural comedy genre… How do I know this? It’ an adaptation of an ongoing manga by Midori Endo which is published in the Gangan Joker.
Daisuke Ono, Kokkuri-san’s seiyuu, will be performing the opening theme song for the upcoming show ‘Welcome!! DISCO Kemokemoke’. This was just posted in the updated music section in the official anime website. The voice actor is famous for his roles in shows such as Durarara!!‘s Shizuo Heiwajima, K anime‘s Kurou Yatogami, Kuroshitsuji‘s Sebastian Michaelis and Haruhi Suzumiya’s Itsuki Koizumi.
Gugure! Kokkuri-san introduces us to the tiny girl called Kohina and her one-time ‘mistake’ to bring forth a Kokkuri – low level Japanese ghost. While the handsome man appears, it is by no means his idea to stay for the sake of the girl, but after seeing her odd and unhealthy everyday habits, the Kokkuri-san decides to haunt Kohina in order to keep her safe. The duo is then joined by a tanuki by the name of Shigaraki and Kohina’s dog-spirit Inugami.
In fact, Kokkuri-san is probably the most popular Japanese scare-game. In the ranks of the western Ouja boards and calling for the Bloody Mary, this game has surely brought many sleepless nights to a lot of both girls and boys in the Asian country.
