Maiden Japan Reveals the Mystic Secrets of “Asura Cryin’”

HOUSTON, TX, March 19, 2019 – Maiden Japan proudly announces that it has acquired the rights to the action-packed supernatural adventure, Asura Cryin’. Anime studio Seven Arcs (ViVid Strike!Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A’s) teamed up with director Keizo Kusakawa (Campione!, Inukami!) to bring the series to life.

Some people are haunted by memories. Tomoharu is haunted by his friend Misao, who died in a horrible plane crash that Tomoharu somehow survived. However, while having a girl that no one else can see hanging around is a little odd, it’s not until Tomoharu’s mom gets remarried, leaving him alone, that things get really weird:  A mysterious girl appears with a package that Tomoharu is supposed to guard. A second girl breaks into the house, demanding something called an “extractor.” And both girls can inexplicably see Misao! As more people target the package and Tomoharu, the mystery only deepens. What’s in the package, why are so many people after it, and is it connected to the plane crash or something even more sinister?

Miyu Irino (Haikyu!!, Mob Psycho 100) plays Tomoharu Natsume while Haruka Tomatsu (Basquash!, To LOVE-Ru) and Ai Nonaka (Amagi Brilliant Park, Clannad) play Misao Minakami and Kanade Takatsuki, respectively.

Maiden Japan plans to stream the series on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow. For the latest and greatest from Maiden Japan, follow us on Facebook.
