Dragon Goes House-Hunting TV Anime Teams Up with Open House

Real estate collab includes a TVCM featuring characters from the upcoming comic fantasy manga adaptation

Letty the red dragon blushes and displays sparkly eyes while a small, aquatic monster looks on in befuddlement in a scene from the upcoming Dragon Goes House-Hunting TV anime.

 

In an inspired bit of cross-promotional advertising, Japanese real estate company Open House has teamed up with the upcoming Dragon Goes House-Hunting (aka Dragon, Ie wo Kau. in Japan) TV anime with a 15 second TV commercial that implies that it's possible to find great deals on property listings even in a magical fantasy world.

 

The TV spot (below) features Letty (CV: Shun Horie), a red dragon in search of a new home, and Dearia (CV: Kaito Ishikawa), a former demon lord turned real estate agent.

 

 

Written by Kawo Tanuki and illustrated by Choco Aya, the original Dragon Goes House-Hunting manga is serialized in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Garden shonen manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Seven Seas Entertainment, who describe the story of the series as follows:

 

When a dragon fails to live up to the fearsome standards set for him, his family kicks him out. He embarks on a quest to find a new home, but soon finds that life on the road is no place for a cowardly beast of legend. In a fantasy world full of elves, dwarves, and other mythical creatures, where everyone wants a piece of him—literally!—the frustrations of house-hunting reach a whole new level.

 

A new key visual for the upcoming Dragon Goes House-Hunting TV anime, featuring the main characters frolicking in a flower-filled field.

 

The Dragon Goes House-Hunting TV anime is directed by Haruki Kusagamori and features animation production by SIGNAL.MD. The series is scheduled to broadcast in Japan on TOKYO MX, Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation, and BS Fuji beginning in April of 2021, and it will also stream in the United States via Funimation as part of their Spring 2021 simulcast lineup.
