Tanjiro VA Leads Original TV Anime ODDTAXI from Pokémon Studio OLM

Series written by Kadzuya Konomoto to premiere in Japan this April

Odd Taxi

 

A new original anime is on the way from P.I.C.S. and Pokémon studio OLM. Manga author Kadzuya Konomoto (Seto Utsumi) pens the story of Odd Taxi, with Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro Kamado in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba) in the lead and sights set on an April premiere on TV Tokyo and AT-X in Japan.

 

The story of Odd Taxi follows an eccentric taxi driver named Kotogawa, who has conversations with a wide variety of passengers, from a college student trying to go viral to a secretive nurse, a failed comedian, an aspiring idol, and more. It sounds kind of like a bizarro Taxi Cab Confessions, only these conversations end up leading to a girl who has disappeared.
