Kadokawa began streaming a video on Wednesday, introducing the main cast members of the anime adaptation of Yuuri Eda’s Kadokawa! light novel series. And if you’re thinking that the characters seemed to remind you of something, that’s probably because it’s CLAMP who did the character designs.
The Kabukibu! anime, directed by Kazuhiro Yoneda, is set to premiere in Japan this coming April. Composing of 12 episodes, the series adapts CLAMP’s original designs for its animation.
