New key visual and Japanese TV schedule also revealed for adaptation of urban fantasy manga by Ryo Hanada
A new key visual (above), a new trailer (below), and the Japanese broadcast schedule have been revealed for Devils' Line, an upcoming TV anime based on the urban fantasy manga by Ryo Hanada about a young woman falling in love with a young man who is not entirely human.
The original Devils' Line manga is serialized in Kodansha's Morning Two seinen manga magazine. An English language version is also available from Vertical Inc., who describe the story as follows:
Tsukasa, a college student, is rescued from an attack by a devil, one of many vampires that can blend in among the human population. Anzai, her savior, is a half-devil who exploits his supernatural gifts as a member of a shadowy police task force that specializes in devil-related crime in Tokyo. As Anzai continues to keep guard over Tsukasa, the two quickly forge a tentative bond—one that Anzai fears will test his iron-clad rule of never drinking human blood...
The Devils' Line TV anime is directed by Yoshinobu Tokumoto and Hideaki Nakano and features animation by Platinum Vision. Devils' Line will broadcast in Japan according to the following TV schedule:
- AT-X: every Saturday during the 23:30 time slot beginning on April 07, 2018, with repeat broadcasts on Sundays at 8:00, Tuesdays at 15:30, and Fridays at 7:30.
- Tokyo MX: every Sunday during the 25:35 time slot beginning on April 08, 2018.
- BS11: every Monday during the 24:30 time slot beginning on April 09, 2018.
- Sun TV: every Monday during the 25:30 time slot beginning on April 09, 2018.
- KBS Kyoto: every Tuesday during the 24:00 time slot beginning on April 10, 2018.
