The social media account has also updated the ensemble key visual to reflect the new cast and character reveal:
Onigunsou‘s supernatural action manga Malevolent Spirits: Mononogatari runs in Ultra Jump, with 13 volumes currently released in Japan. Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the series, with the first English volume set to be released in January 2023. Seven Seas describes the series as such:
When spirits cross over into the human world, they can possess old objects and gain a physical form: a tsukumogami. Tsukumogami can be gentle, violent, or somewhere in-between, so the Saenome clan peacefully helps send them back to the spirit world to avoid destruction.
Kunato Hyouma is a member of the clan, but is…less than peaceful, since he holds a grudge from when a tsukumogami robbed him of something important. Afraid that Hyouma’s brash anger in dealing with these spirits will lead to supernatural catastrophes, Hyouma’s grandfather sends him to live in Kyoto with Nagatsuki Botan, an unusual young woman who actually lives with tsukumogami like family! Can Hyouma learn to control his emotions when dealing with tsukumogami, or is his own spirit doomed to be possessed with rage forever?
Ryuichi Kimura (Aikatsu!) directs the series at BN Pictures with Keiichiro Ochi (The Quintessential Quintuplets) writing the series composition. No premiere date has been confirmed for the Malevolent Spirits: Mononogatari TV anime as of yet. The cast reveals are set to continue weekly until the ensemble key visual is completed.
