Adaptation based on Gothic supernatural manga by somato hits Japanese TV in April of 2021
A new cast member has been revealed for Shadows House, an upcoming TV anime based on the supernatural manga by somato about a group of faceless aristocrats and the "living dolls" that care for them.
In Shadows House, voice actor Ayane Sakura plays the dual-role of Louise, a Shadow, and Ruu, the living doll that acts as her caretaker. Louis is described as being self-absorbed but also very doting on her living doll companion. Ruu, on the other hand, is described as being not very self-assertive and always complying with her mistress's wishes.
Serialized since 2018 in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump, Shadows House is set in a mysterious, Western-style mansion populated by a clan of "Shadows" who imitate the trappings of human aristocracy. The Shadows have no faces of their own, so they are attended by "living dolls" who act as their caretakers. The story follows Emilyko, a living doll, and Kate Shadow, the Shadow whom Emilyko serves.
The Shadows House TV anime is directed by Kazuki Ohashi and features animation production by CloverWorks. Shadows House is scheduled to begin broadcasting in Japan in April of 2021.
