Following its announcement in July earlier this year with the release of a teaser visual and trailer, supernatural horror anime Dark Gathering gave us another peek into its spooky world today by unveiling a character design sheet for deuteragonist Yayoi Hozuki, who possesses strong psychic abilities and an IQ of 160.

Based on the 2019 manga by Kenichi Kondo, Dark Gathering is being directed by Hiroshi Ikehata (TONIKAWA: Over The Moon For You) at studio OLM (Summer Time Rendering, ODDTAXI) for a 2023 broadcast. Additional details, such as further staff and cast, are yet to be revealed.
The story follows Keitaro Gentoga, a college freshman haunted by his ability to attract spirits and the collateral damage it’s caused in the past. His attempts to blend into society by becoming a private tutor, however, become fraught with supernatural danger once more when his first student, Yayoi Hozuki, embroils him in her quest to find the spirit that took her mother away.
