Manga 'Karakuri Circus' is getting a TV anime adaptation.

Plot Summary


Katou Narumi suffers from Zonapha Syndrome, a rare ailment that stops his breathing unless he makes people laugh. He's been forced to abandon his training in Chinese kenpo and return to Japan, where he now works as a clown. The only problem: he's not very funny.

One day he meets Saiga Masaru, the recent inheritor of a huge fortune, who gives him the first laugh he's gotten all day. When he realizes Masaru is being pursued by assassins, he steps in to protect the boy, only to discover that instead of conventional weapons, the assassins wield huge, eerie puppets. They soon encounter the mysterious Shirogane, who controls a puppet of her own, and claims she was sent from France by Masaru's late grandfather to protect him.

Their paths intertwine and diverge, splitting into two stories: Karakuri and Circus, puppets and performers, tears and laughter. The strange circus of living dolls that spreads Zonapha Syndrome, the human puppets known collectively as the Shirogane, and the puppeteers whose undying grudge set in motion both sides of this performance.

And even though it's an Amazon exclusive, this is not one of the Animeism shows this season. It's coming to Tokyo MX on TV, not MBS.

Well crap. Amazon exclusive. I think this series deserves better than being confined to that streaming service.

What’s wrong with Amazon, other that someone not having the site?

As someone who pretty much only watches anime, it just isn't a very good value for me. Also I really dislike the UI.

Looking forward to this. Too bad it's going to be on Amazon, but it can't be helped.

Their que system is not nearly as convenient as Crunchyroll's or even Funimation's. They don't have schedule page to tell you what is new either, so you basically just have to remember when new shows are supposed to come out.
