Dark Gathering Anime Adaptation Drops in Summer 2023

Dark GatheringThe anime adaptation of Kenichi Kondo’s manga Dark Gathering is set for summer 2023.

That’s the word from Shonen Jump’s latest issue.

The series will be directed by Hiroshi Ikehata (FLCL Progressive) with scripts from Shigeru Murakoshi (Zombie Land Saga) and production by OLM.

Other staff members include character designer Shinya Segawa (Pastel Memories) and composers Kohta Yamamoto (Attack on Titan Final Season), Shun Narita (Noblesse) and Yusuke Ceo (Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online).

The manga launched back in 2019, and is being released by Viz in English starting next year. Here’s how they describe it:

An unwilling magnet for the supernatural and a ghost-hunting little girl join forces to capture Japan’s most terrifying and dangerous spirits.

Keitaro is ready to stop living as a shut-in. He’s starting university. He’s reconnecting with his childhood friend. He’s taking a tutoring job. And he’s not messing around with ghosts anymore. At least that’s what he thinks, until he finds out the elementary schooler he’s tutoring is an occult-obsessed genius who’s hunting down dangerous ghosts and won’t stop until she’s found the one that took her mom.
