Straight from manga author Satoshi Mizukami, we have the news that popular manga series The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer has a TV anime adaptation in the works. The series is currently slotted in for this summer, and a teaser visual has been revealed along with some of the lead staff members.
You can also see a celebratory visual by Mizukami above.
Satoshi Mizukami is handling the scripts for the series along with Yuichiro Momose (So I’m a Spider, So What?), while Nobuaki Nakanishi (Mangirl!) directs. The studio has yet to be confirmed, so stay tuned for more on that.
The original The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer manga ran from 2005-2010. Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the series in English and sums up the story below:
Asamiya Yuuhi was an ordinary college student… until the day a lizard showed up and asked him to help save the world. The next thing he knows, he’s been given a ring and special powers, plus an enemy stalking him. However, he’s saved in the nick of time by the girl next door, Samidare, who’s planning… WHAT kinds of things?! This is an unconventional story that mixes ordinary life with the bizarre and supernatural!
