The Fuji TV television station has posted a 14-second commercial that announces the January 15 premiere of the Genji Monogatari Sennenki Genji (The Tale of Genji: A Millennium-Old Journal: Genji) television anime series.(ANN)

Tale of Genji Anime Trailer

I’ll be covering this anime regularly on weekends :)

  1. I’m a little disappointed with the character designs, but the animation quality looks very good overall. With my winter viewing list currently just one title long (Zoku Natsume Yuujin-chou), I’m hoping the first episode of Genji impresses me enough for me to add it to the queue.

  2. Oh, it’s good that you have one title only – that means you can take a look at some older series :)

  4. I love this anime. I’ve been searching for this in the internet for 10 years now.

    • If you’ve been searching for such a long time, perhaps you were looking for this adaptation? This trailer is for a new anime that just finished airing a few days ago :)

      • I love the 1987 version. Many found it boring but this one has a profound effect on me. The music, the cinematography, the colors, the pauses, everything…have a haunting effect on me. But I would love to see the newer version that you mentioned.

        • It sounds like you enjoyed 1987 movie version of Tale of Genji :) I should check it out :)

          You can see some screenshots from the new animation under this category.
