Last time we checked in on the anime adaptation of To Love Ru illustrator Kentaro Yabuki’s romantic comedy manga Ayakashi Triangle it was set to premiere sometime in 2023. Now we have some info on the main staff and a premiere window that narrows that timing down to January.

The main staff revealed thus far includes director Noriaki Akitaya (Slow Loop, The Strongest Sage with the Weakest Crest), assistant director Kei Umabiki, series composition writer Shogo Yasukawa (The Executioner and Her Way of Life), character designer Hideki Furukawa (Strike the Blood), sound director Jin Aketagawa and music composer Rei Ishizuka (A Couple of Cuckoos).

Check out the new teaser visual:

The Ayakashi Triangle manga first kicked off in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump in 2020, where it ran until early 2022 before moving to Shueisha’s manga app/website Shonen Jump+ in April. Nine volumes have been published in Japan, and English publisher VIZ Media describes the story like so:

Teenage exorcist ninja Matsuri has his hands full protecting his town from harmful ayakashi. But all that exorcising has hardened his heart to the playful and helpless ones. Enter Suzu, Matsuri’s childhood friend who has a crush on him, and who calls ayakashi her friends. But one day, when Suzu is attacked by a powerful ayakashi, Matsuri ends up magically transformed into a girl! The jutsu is permanent, so now he has two challenges—defeat the growing number of ayakashi targeting Suzu and learn how to live as a girl! Is he man, or woman, enough for the task?
