New key visual, cast members, and broadcast info revealed for ongoing adaptation of Yoshikazu Hamada's NSFW manga
Hold onto you kimonos, because an action-packed new trailer, a new key visual, new cast members, and the Japanese broadcast schedule have all been revealed for Tsugu Tsugumomo, the second season of the TV anime based on Tsugumomo, an ecchi supernatural manga by Yoshikazu Hamada about a young man solving paranormal situations with the help of a tsukumogami made from his mother's favorite obi sash. The new cast members include:
Kaede Yuasa as Bakura, a pillow tsugumomo with the power to guide others into and out of the dreams of people who are asleep.
And Sora Tokui as Kyouka, a flute tsugumomo with the power to generate shockwaves and to influence the human body with sound.
The original Tsugumomo manga is serialized in Futabasha's Monthly Action seinen manga magazine. Crunchyroll currently streams the 2017 Tsugumomo TV anime, and describes the story as follows:
One day Kagami Kazuya, a completely ordinary boy, suddenly encounters Kiriha, a beautiful girl in a kimono. Even though Kazuya has no recollection of meeting her before, Kiriha calls out "Long time no see" to him. It turns out Kiriha is actually a tsukumogami whose true identity is the precious obi Kazuya carries around that used to belong to his late mother. All kinds of bizarre phenomena unfold around the sadistic beauty Kiriha in this supernatural action comedy!
