Adaptation based on urban fantasy manga by Ryo Hanada will be distributed by Sentai Filmworks
The vampire romance is getting hot and heavy in a new trailer for Devils' Line, an upcoming TV anime based on the urban fantasy manga by Ryo Hanada about a college student who falls in love with a half-demon, half-human hybrid who works for a shadowy police organization.
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 on AT-X beginning on April 07, 2018, with additional broadcasts to follow on Tokyo MX, BS11, Sun TV, and KBS Kyoto.
The Devils' Line TV is also licensed for distribution in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Scandinavia, South Africa, Spain, Portugal, and the Netherlands by Sentai Filmworks, who describe the story of Devils' Line as follows:
Set in a shadowy, often violent world where vampires repress their bloodlust to survive alongside humanity, a chance encounter and unlikely entanglement risk exposing the darkness that lies in every heart.
