A Corpse is Buried Under Sakurakos Feet Key Visual 001 - 20150515

A Corpse is Buried Under Sakurako’s Feet is based on Shiori Ota’s light novel series of the same name. The series was first revealed in February, when a teaser website for the show opened, with a notice that planning was underway.

The original light novels began publication in 2013, with the sixth volume hitting Japanese stores on February 25. The series currently has over 600,000 copies in circulation. Since its début, A Corpse is Buried Under Sakurako’s Feet was also adapted into a trio of radio dramas, which starred Yuuki Kaji as Shōtarō and Ami Koshimizu as Sakurako.

The light novel series also received a televised push in 2014, on the localized version of crime drama (or is it a dramedy?) Bones.
