A TV anime adaptation of the manga series has been in the works for a long time, and today, Netflix has announced that it’ll be distributing the show from October 2024.

Science SARU is the studio behind the new anime, and the talented team has just recently debuted their series Scott Pilgrim Takes Off onto the service. Before that, the team worked on Japan Sinks:2020 and Devilman Crybaby. Projects elsewhere include The Heike Story, Ride Your Wave and the upcoming KIMINOIRO.

Netflix confirmed the addition of the show coming to Netflix via X on March 10th, giving us a broad October 2024 release window which is the same premiere window that the series will have in Japan where it’ll air on MBS. Netflix holds the global rights to the anime but won’t be exclusive to the streamer. Crunchyroll has also confirmed that it’ll be streaming the movie alongside Netflix in select territories.

Per Crunchyroll, here’s what you can expect from the anime adaptation, which combines supernatural elements along with being a romantic comedy thriller:

“This is a story about Momo, a high school girl who comes from a family of spirit mediums, and her classmate Okarun, an occult fanatic. After Momo rescues Okarun from being bullied, they begin talking. However, an argument ensues between them since Momo believes in ghosts but denies aliens exist, and Okarun believes in aliens but denies ghosts exist.

To prove to each other what they believe in is real, Momo goes to an abandoned hospital where a UFO has been spotted and Okarun goes to a tunnel rumored to be haunted. To their surprise, they each encounter overwhelming paranormal activities that transcend comprehension. Amid these predicaments, Momo awakens her hidden power and Okarun gains the power of a curse to overcome these new dangers! Their fateful love begins as well!?”

The story of the occult battle and adolescence starts!
