Love of Kill Releases English-Subtitled Trailer

The anime adaptation of Love of Kill (called Koroshi Ai in the original Japanese) will be arriving this January. Kadokawa has dropped a trailer for it that is almost two minutes long and contains English subtitles, so you don’t have to speak Japanese to know what’s going on.

The trailer also gave more information on the cast and crew. Now we know that—in addition to Saori Ōnishi playing Cheateau Dankworth and Hiro Shimono playing Son Ryang-ha—Kenyuu Horiuchi plays Euripedes Ritzland, Kōhei Amasaki plays Jim, Tomoaki Maeno plays Hou, and Houchu Ohtsuka plays Donny.

The anime is being directed by Hideaki Oba over at Platinum Vision. The task of both writing and supervising series scripts goes to Ayumu Hisao of Kono Oto Tomare!: Sounds of Life. Character design falls to Youko Satou of Dog & Scissors and 7SEEDS. The music is being composed by Kei Yoshikawa, who previously worked on Mobile Suit Gundam AGE and SaiKano: Another Love Song. The music is being done at Toy’s Factory, which is collaborating with MIRACLE BUS on this. The opening theme song “Midnight Dancer” is performed by Toshiki Masuda, and the ending theme song “Makoto Period” is performed by Aika Kobayashi.

The anime will get a premiere on November 21 at Anime NYC, and when it officially comes out in January, Crunchyroll will stream it for American audiences.

The original manga by Fe debuted in 2015 in Monthly Comic Gene. Yen Press has since licensed the series and is releasing it in English. They gave this description of the first volume:

“She’s a professional hitman. And he…is also a professional hitman. And she’s his target. Caught in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, will she fall first…or will he?”

After checking out the English-subtitled trailer, are you looking forward to watching the anime when it becomes available?
