The manga series Ayakashi Triangle got the nod at the end of 2021 that an anime adaptation was coming but there weren’t any details to it – just some controversy on the domestic side about manga localization. Recently set for a January 9th, 2023 premiere, the folks at Crunchyroll made their pickup of the series for the season.

While the anime is just about ready to wrap up, it looks like the same is being said about the manga. The official site has now revealed that the final chapter will be out on September 25th, 2023 and the sixteenth and final compiled volume will arrive on December 4th, 2023.

The show has Noriaki Akitaya directing it with Kei Umabiki assisting and is based on the scripts from Shogo Yasukawa. Hideki Furukawa is handling the character designs with CONNECT on board for the animation production.

The Japanese cast includes Shōya Chiba as Matsuri Kazamaki (Male), Miyu Tomita as Matsuri Kazamaki (Female), Kana Ichinose as Suzu Kanade, Tesshō Genda as Shirogane, Haruka Tomatsu as Yayoi Toba, Hina Kino as Lucy Tsukioka, Shōya Ishige as Sōga Ninokuru, and Satomi Arai as Ponosuke Ninokuru.

The opening is “Neppu wa Rutensuru” by Philosophy no Dance while the ending theme song is “Itowanai feat. Miyu Tomita, Kana Ichinose” performed by MIMiNARI.

This series comes from creator Kentaro Yabuki who worked on the extensive Black Cat manga series. It began in June 2020 and has six volumes out as of the end of 2021.

Plot Concept: Teenager Kazamaki Matsuri has long been part of an elite force of ninja exorcists, tasked with fighting malicious ayakashi spirits who threaten Japan–especially those after his childhood friend, the spirit medium Kanade Suzu. As he fiercely protects her, and his relationship with her blooms from friendship into something more, a powerful cat ayakashi vows to get between the lovebirds: by casting a forbidden spell that turns Matsuri into a woman! With no apparent way to undo the spell, Matsuri must continue battling ayakashi–and go back to school–in this new feminine body until he can find a way to turn back.
