Shina Dark Anime Trailer

Yeah, I know this is probably as old as Jesus and dinosaurs, but for some reason I feel obliged to make this article. Some of you must’ve known that Shina Dark anime will be aired this year. It’s animated by SHAFT and directed by Akiyuki Shinbo (of Negima!? and  Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei fame). The anime will be 13 episodes long. Considering how the original material is still very short, I hope the anime won’t turn into a massive trainwreck.

Staff list (from Animesuki):

Supervision: Shinbou Akiyuki
Director: Konno Naoyuki, Tomooka Shinpei
Storyboards & Episode Director & Key Animation: Konno Naoyuki, Tomooka Shinpei
Music Producer: Lantis
Audio Director: Tsuruoka Youta
Producer: GENCO
Animation Production: SHAFT

Seiyuu list:

Garet: Tomatsu Haruka (seems like a newbie. She will also voice Lala in the upcoming To Love Ru anime)

Christina: Nazuka Kaori (no comment)

Exoda C. Kurau: Daisuke Ono (hell, yeah!)

Vincent: Yasumoto Hiroki (I’m getting a Justice vibe here)

Noel: Kawasumi Ayako (hell, yeah! again)

Marple: Hanazawa Kana (it’ll be cute if Marple goes honii~ honii~)

And now the trailer!



  1. I had the same response to the seiyus. The trailer looks pretty nice SHAFT will be using what I call their “serious” style of animation (as opposed to the cell-like animation of Zetsubo Sensei or Moonphase).

    And YEAH. DAISUKE ONO…great choice.
    Also good job with the manga summary earlier.

    and I wonder if the narrator (Fumihiko Tachiki) will remain for the anime. He’s really good in Kaiji.
