“Tsugumomo” Anime Gets PV and Key Visual

The official website for the Tsugumomo anime adaptation has uploaded a key visual and promotional video for the upcoming series. Tsugumomo began as a manga in November 2007 by Yoshikadu Hamada and was published in Monthly Action Magazine. It had a brief English publication through JManga before the site closed down with only two volumes translated.

The series’ synopsis can be found below:

“Kazuya Kagami never goes anywhere without the precious “Fukurobi” his mother gave him. One day a beautiful, kimono-clad girl named Kiriha appeared before him. Kiriha naturally began to live with Kazuya in his room. Then there’s Chisato, Kazuya’s childhood friend with glasses and a ponytail, who meddles in his affairs. Soon there’s also an overprotective older sister who seems to want to take baths with him. Jumble in a huge-chested priestess, a good-looking sorceress named Kokuyoura, beautiful women, and hot girls, and Kazuya’s happy, embarrassing, confusing life begins…”

Tsugumomo will begin airing on April 2.
