Kiyo in Kyoto: From the Maiko House opens its doors to NHK-E in October, airing on TV for the first time to round off the rest of its episodes, which have been streaming monthly on the NHK World Japan on-demand service and right here on Crunchyroll. To celebrate the TV release, the series got a new visual as well will have a brand new opening theme song sung by Ayano Tsuji, who is most well known for the end credits song for Studio Ghibli's The Cat Returns.
More details on the new opening will be announced at a later date. Kiyo in Kyoto: From the Maiko House has released seven episodes so far, with another set to be released at the end of the month. Crunchyroll describes the traditionally based anime series as such:
Kiyo and Sumire came to Kyoto from Aomori Prefecture, dreaming of becoming maiko. But after an unexpected turn of events, Kiyo starts working as the live-in cook at the Maiko House. Their story unfolds in Kagai, the Geiko and maiko district in Kyoto, alongside their housemate maikos. Kiyo nourishes them daily with her homecooked meals, and Sumire strives toward her promising future as the once-in-a-century maiko.
