Summer simulcast announcements are trickling out, with plenty more to come in the weeks ahead. One of the latest comes from HIDIVE, which revealed plans to stream the Dark Gathering anime exclusively this July.
The new series is based on the manga by Kenichi Kondo, which launched in 2019 and is currently serialized in Shueisha’s Jump Square at 12 volumes thus far. Hiroshi Ikehata directs the Dark Gathering anime adaptation, with Shigeru Murakoshi writing and OLM handling animation production.
After a devastating encounter with a restless spirit, ghost-fearing psychic Keitaro Gentoga became a shut-in to avoid additional spectral catastrophes. But no man is a haunted island, and Keitaro eventually reintegrates with society by getting a part-time job as a tutor to the child prodigy Yayoi Houzuki. Yayoi isn’t just an academic genius, though. She’s a talented psychic medium hell-bent on finding the malevolent spirit behind her mother’s disappearance, and she’s gravely determined to drag Keitaro into her terrifying world of grotesque supernatural phenomenon.
