New PV and 15-second CM for “Centaur no Nayami” TV Anime

A new 1-minute promotional video and 15-second commercial have been released for the upcoming Centaur no Nayami (A Centaur’s Life or Centaur’s Worries) television anime adaptation! The videos show off the wide variety of monster girls that attend school and interact with the centaur main character, Himeno.

The ongoing manga series was first published back in February 2011 and is currently being published in English through Seven Seas Entertainment.

Seven Seas Entertainment describes the plot below:

“Being a teenager is never easy… especially for a centaur! Himeno is a sweet, shy girl, who like many teens her age, struggles with the trials and tribulations of attending high school. The difference is she’s a centaur; but she’s not alone. In fact, all of her classmates are supernatural creatures, sporting either horns, wings, tails, halos, or some other unearthly body appendage. Yet despite their fantastical natures, Himeno and her best friends-the dragon-winged Nozomi, and Kyoko with her spiraled horns-are down-to-earth, fun-loving teenagers who grapple with issues of life and love in a mostly normal daily school setting.”

Centaur no Nayami will begin airing on July 9.
