My manga friends must be feeling super happy after this news. This Japanese Comic by Tomoko Yamashita magically spellbinds every reader from the instant they start it, forcing them to binge-read it. The popularity of this masterpiece can be guessed from the successful 8.27/10 score on MAL. 

Whenever the announcement of an anime adaptation is made, fans get curious about a number of things. The first question that crosses their minds is, “Who will animate the manga, and who will act as the director of the series?”

In this case, Studio Shuka, popular for Creating Durarara, Natusme’s Book Of Friends, and 91 Days, will take care of the animation production. Studio Shuka has a separate fandom since it has entertained otaku with a number of worth-watching treats.

Miyuki Ooshiru joined the team as the Director, and Koyei Kiyasu joined as the Series Composer and script writer, respectively. Kenji Hayama is responsible for creating visually appealing character designs. Lastly, music connects the audience to the story, so Kensuke Ushio was selected to handle the music area.
