Takao Yoshioka (Elfen Lied, High School DxD) is in charge of series composition.
TrySail will perform opening theme Original, while Sangatsu no Phantasia provides closing theme song Fairy Tale.
Funimation describes the show as:
This is a stimulating and heartfelt school demi-human comedy featuring those very unique “demis” and a high school teacher named Takahashi Tetsuo, who’s highly interested in learning more about their daily lives and habits.
ACCA is based on Natsume Ono’s (House of Five Leaves, Ristorante Paradiso) manga of the same name. Shingo Natsume (Space Dandy, One-Punch Man) is directing the series at Madhouse, with Norifumi Kugai (Space Dandy, One-Punch Man) providing character designs. Tomohiro Suzuki (One-Punch Man) is in charge of series composition.
The show’s opening theme, Shadow and Truth, will be performed by One III Notes (“One Third Notes”). Aira Yuki will handle closing theme Pale Moon ga Yureteru (The Pale Moon Sways).
Funimation describes ACCA as:
“ACCA” is a giant unified syndicate residing in a kingdom split into 13 autonomous regions. ACCA was formed back when there was threat of a coup d’etat, and it has continued to protect the peace of civilians for almost one hundred years. Jean Otus, the vice-chairman of the inspections department at ACCA headquarters, is one of the most cunning men in the syndicate’s history with the nickname “Jean the Cigarette Peddler.” Whimsically puffing his cigarettes, he wanders through the 13 districts, checking to see if there is any foul play afoot. Meanwhile, Jean is monitored by gazes, threatening rumors, and… snack time. Jean’s quiet everyday life slowly gets swallowed up into the world’s conspiracies!
Fuuka is based on Kouji Seo’s manga of the same name. Keizou Kusakawa (KanColle, Riddle Story of Devil) was tapped to direct the series at Studio Diomedéa, with Yoshino Honda providing character designs. Aoi Akashiro is in charge of series composition for the project.
Takuro Iga (Aria the Scarlet Ammo Double A) will score the soundtrack at studio West Ground. Fuuka‘s opening theme song, Climber’s High, will be performed by Hedgehogs. “Hedgehogs” is an in-world band, whose songs will feature lyrics by series creator Kouji Seo. West Ground will compose the song, while Sho from “My First Story” arranges.
Funimation describes Fuuka as:
Yuu Haruna has transferred to a school in Tokyo so he can live with his sisters after their parents moved to America. Introverted and unskilled at socializing with others, Yuu’s main mode of communication is Twitter. As he’s scoping out his new surroundings with his eyes on his smartphone, he crashes into Fuuka Akitsuki, a girl who appeared in front of him out of nowhere. Centered on the awkward and unsocial Yuu Haruna, the mysteriously charming Fuuka Akitsuki, and Yuu’s childhood friend Koyuki Hinashi, a brand new love story woven through music is about to begin.
Chaos;Child is based on the visual novel of the same name by 5pb. Games and MAGES. The title will be helmed by Masato Jinbo (Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei!, Shomin Sample) at Silver Link, with Kazuyuki Yamayoshi providing character designs. Jinbo will also be taking charge of series composition on the project. The team of Takeshi Abo (Steins;Gate, Robotics;Notes) and Onoken (Accel World) will score the soundtrack.
Funimation describes the show as:
Six years after the deadly earthquake and events of ChäoS;HEAd, Tokyo’s reconstructed Shibuya district becomes home to another series of mysterious happenings. An abnormal string of deaths occurs amidst Shibuya’s reconstruction, and it isn’t until a high school newspaper club member starts to piece together the clues that these cases begin to demonstrate a hauntingly familiar pattern.
