Original TV anime AYAKA is on the way to screens in Japan and to Crunchyroll this year, and in the meantime we have a new trailer to introduce some of the characters. Meet the disciples of Ayakajima island—the location at the paranormal heart of the series—and some new characters and cast members in the video below. 

Newly introduced characters and cast include Chatarou Fukuwake (voiced by Gakuto Kajiwara):

And Yako Amano (voiced by Yuki Sakakihara):

The folks behind the AYAKA anime at GoRA and King Records previously announced that they would be replacing voice actor Takahiro Sakurai. 

Crunchyroll will stream the AYAKA TV anime—which is directed by Nobuyoshi Nagayama (Happy Sugar Life) at Studio Blanc—when it airs this year. Here’s the official synopsis:

The story follows Yukito Yanagi, an orphan who one day encounters an eccentric disciple of his father’s. The strange man takes him to his birthplace on Ayakajima, made up of seven islands where mysterious beings called “Mitama” and dragons are rumored to reside. There, Yukito meets his father’s two other disciples, who protect the harmony of Ayakajima… which soon threatens to collapse.
