Katanagatari Leak

“Meiya Kadenrou (冥夜花伝廊)” by Minami Kuribayashi

Production materials for the anime adaptation of NisiOisin’s Katanagatari novel have been posted online — three weeks before the anime’s January 25 television premiere. The posted materials include animation footage, two songs in various formats, scripts for 12 episodes, character designs, and storyboards. One site hosting a link to the materials alleges that they were leaked from the FTP (file transfer protocol) site of WHITE FOX, the studio producing the anime. (ANN)


  1. I just can’t get used to the character designs of this series. ^^;; Especially so because it doesn’t look like a light slice-of-life kind of series.

    • Yes, the character design is special, featuring many animal- and insect-based characters with rounded shapes. I like that foxy though😛

  2. ups…
    the video is already remove

    • Yes, they are quick about it. It will be airing soon anyway🙂

  3. For some reason, the character designs for this show look strangely western. I guess it’s the solid colors and lack of facial detail.
