“March Comes in Like a Lion” TV anime visual
Visuals and staff information have been released for upcoming anime series “March Comes in Like a Lion”, based on Chica Umino’s manga series and scheduled to premiere in fall 2016.
Serialized in Young Animal, the shogi-themed manga series is the latest from “Honey and Clover” creator Chica Umino. Much like the recently announced live-action adaptation, the anime will retain the original manga series’ vivid characters and unique visual style.
The anime series will be produced by Shaft and helmed by “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” and “Monogatari” series director Akiyuki Shinbo. Nobuhiro Sugiyama (“Nisekoi”, “Arakawa Under the Bridge”) will serve as character designer, with music by composer Yukari Hashimoto (“Osomatsu-san”, “Sasami-san@Ganbaranai”).
