Well, then, the iconic adventure in Shibuya moves to the small screen. And what better time to show muscle to fans than with a first teaser trailer, the same that you can admire at the top of the news. Kazuya Ichikawa will take control of the direction of the anime while Midori Goto will take care of the script.
