We’re gearing up for a truly monstrous July!

Earlier today, the official Toho Animation YouTube channel updated with a pair of character teaser videos. The two teasers introduce viewers to monster maidens Miia (Lamia) and Papi (Harpy).

As always, we give the warning that there is suggestive content, and this is not safe for work.
