Studio Pierrot is animating the Twin Star Exorcists anime series, while Wagakki Band provides the show’s opening theme song. The series is based on Good Luck Girl! creator Yoshiaki Sukeno’s manga of the same name. The original manga kicked off in the pages of Jump Square on November 4, 2013, and spans six collected volumes. The latest volume hit retailers on September 4.
Viz Media currently holds the North American rights to the Twin Star Exorcists manga. The company describes the series as follows:
Rokuro dreams of becoming anything but an exorcist! Then mysterious Benio turns up. The pair are dubbed the “Twin Star Exorcists” and learn they are fated to marry… Can Rokuro escape both fates? When Rokuro’s best friend Ryogo goes missing, Rokuro is forced to ask Benio for help to enter Magano, the realm of the evil Kegare, to rescue him!
A pair of character design pieces are also available, which we’ve provided below.
