After Production IMS closed due to bankruptcy, many were wondering what would happen to the Date A Live anime. But fret not folks, because J.C. Staff has taken over the animation production for Date A Live III. And now, they’ve released a new key visual, which teases a certain spirit-hating human as… a spirit!
Yes folks, they’re actually adapting THAT arc. The visual also teases the 7th spirit, Natsumi, in the background. Ayumi Mano will be voicing this brand new spirit. They also revealed the anime’s 11th January premiere via AT-X and other networks.
Keitaro Motonaga is returning to direct the anime, with Hideki Shirane also returning for Series Composition. J.C. Staff will be the third studio to handle the franchise, the other two being AIC PLUS+and the now-bankrupt Production IMS.
