Synopsis: (from wiki)

Keita Ibuki is an independent and struggling freelance computer programmer who, with two of his friends, is developing and trying to sell a video game program to big-time video game companies in Tokyo while trying to stay afloat and survive financially with money being given to him by his 21-year old childhood friend Akane Sano. He had a chance meeting on one night with a high Mototsumitama named Kuro while eating alone at a ramen stand. He gives her his dinner, a bowl of ramen, and tries to protect her when she is attacked in an ambush by an unknown Mototsumitama. Keita loses his entire left arm during the fight between the Mototsumitamas, but Kuro was able to save his life by exchanging the decapitated arm with her own left arm since she has enhanced healing abilities like all Mototsumitamas. This creates a contract between them, which makes her more powerful provided than before with Kuro warning Keita that they need to be together all the time in order to be at their strongest.

As Kuro stays with Keita and gets acquainted with him while meeting with other Mototsumitamas and their human masters, they are targeted by the strongest Mototsumitama clan of the East, the Shishigami (Lion God) Clan in an attempt to kidnap his Akane and bring about the destruction of the coexistence balance, which Mototsumitamas are supposed to protect for many years. Keita, on the other hand, is determined to investigate and determine why his mother had died after seeing her double as a young boy and find out who is responsible for trying to destroying the coexistence balance on Earth.


Genre: (from wiki)
Action, Drama, Fantasy

An anime adaptation has already been announced recently, with animation work to be done by Sunrise. No airing date was mentioned in the announcement.


For people who wants to say that I am bumping, that is not true. I am just updating this thread.

EDIT: Anime Preview: youtube

Update:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-12-14/bandai-entertainment-gets-kurokami-anime

Bandai Entertainment has announced at its Black Sunday event in Los Angeles that it has acquired Kurokami The Animation, the upcoming adaptation of Dall-Young Lim and Sung-woo Park's Kurokami (Black God) supernatural action manga. The television anime series will debut simultaneously in Japan, South Korea, and the United States within 24 hours of each other on January 8, 2009. In the United States, it will premiere on the iaTV television network on Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT (or about eight hours after the Japanese airings). The announcements about the simultaneous broadcasts are being made in Japan and South Korea after Bandai Entertainment's announcement in Los Angeles.

The American producers have been dubbing off pencil test footage instead of final animation due to the speed of the process. Laura Bailey, Jason Griffith, Julie Ann Taylor, Stephanie Sheh, and Christopher Kromer will play the lead roles of Kuro, Keita, Akane, Excel, and Daichi, respectively. Mike Sinterniklaas (Freedom) is directing the dubbing, and Toshifumi Yoshida (Gurren Lagann) is producing the dubbing. The staff chose to work with Screen Actors Guild members to gain access to certain, otherwise unavailable talents.

The story revolves around an ordinary game programmer named Keita who gets caught in a battle being fought by Kuro — a Mototsumitama or a guardian of the coexistence equilibrium. Kuro saves Keita's life and regenerates an arm that Keita loses when they first meet. The Sunrise anime studio and director Tsuneo Kobayashi (Emma: A Victorian Romance, Glass no Kamen, The Twelve Kingdoms) are animating the production in Japan. The original manga has been running in Square Enix's Monthly Young Gangan magazine, and Yen Press published the fourth volume of the manga under the name Black God in North America in October.
