Media Factory is slowly ramping up its promotion of the anime adaptation of Midori Endo’s 2011 manga series Gugure! Kokkuri-san with a second TV spot here. This one lets Inugami take center stage for part of it while also just making sure the tone and style of the series is quite apparent. The series is set to bow in Japan on October 5th on TV Tokyo and then rolling out over the next several days to TV Osaka, TV Aichi, TV Hokkaido and eventually to ATX on October 11th. The series will be animated at TMS Entertainment with Yoshimasa Hiraike directing while Miwa Oshima will handle the character designs. The four panel manga has been running for a few years with five volumes having been released so far. The new casting information includes:

The series stars Ryou Hirohashi as Kohina Ichmatsu, Daisuke Ono as Kokkuri-san, Takahiro Sakurai as Inugami, Jouji Nakata as Jigaraki, Yukana as Tama, Hisako Kanemoto as Jime-ko, Kazutomi Yamamoto as Yamamoto-kun, and Yukari Tamura as the narrator.

Plot concept: The story revolves around a little girl named Kohina. Kohina ends up summoning a Kokkuri-san, a low-ranking ghost in Japanese folklore. The Kokkuri-san she calls turns out to be a white-haired handsome, young man. At first he had intended to merely haunt her, but soon he becomes worried about her terrible eating habit of cup ramen for every meal. He later decides to haunt her in order to protect her.
