We learned about an anime adaptation last fall with a concept that could certainly be intriguing with the web manga series Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san from Honda getting the nod. With it set for a fall 2018 debut, the official site has now brought out the first promotional video for it and a new key visual.
The show is directed by Owl Todoroki with Shin Okashima handling the scripts. Naoko Kakiki is serving as the character designer with DLE handling the animation production.
The Japanese cast includes Soma Saito as Honda.
The manga is serialized on the Gene Pixiv site and has three volumes out so far. The property is the first professional work from creator Honda and the manga is distributed in print form by Media Factory.
Plot Concept: Honda-san is a skeleton working in a bookstore, and he frequently has to deal with foreigners in the manga section.
