"Pupa" Anime Moved to January

Veteran director Tomomi Mochizuki helms horror anime about "the ultimate love of the brother and sister"

The Twitter account for the Pupa anime has confirmed that the horror series has been bumped from the fall season to January. The Studio DEEN production adapts Sayaka Motegi's horror manga about "the ultimate love of the brother and sister," between Yume Hasegawa, a little sister who transforms into a man-eating creature, and Utsutsu Hasegawa,her older brother who has the power of rapid cellular regeneration and feeds her with his own body.


The Twitter account apologizes and promises more news in the future.


Tomomi Mochizuki (Ghibli's Ocean Waves, Princess Nine, Here's Greenwood) will be directing the series with Ibuki Kido (GJ Club's Kasumi Shinomiya, OniAi's Akiko Himenokōji) and Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free's Haruka ) as the leads.


Noto Mamiko, Tsuda Kenjiro, Ise Mariya, Mikami Shiori and Kurosawa Yurika have reportedly been added to the cast.


There's also talk that the manga will be ending next month.
