The anime is based on the manga of the same name by author Kazuhiro Fujita. The Manga started in 1997 and ended serialization in May 2006. The series in total had 426 chapters. Karakuri Circus Anime will be adapted by Studio VOLN who previously worked on the recent anime adaption of Ushio to Tora. Another series made by the author Kazuhiro Fujita.
Kazuhiro Fujita also currently has a manga which is ongoing titled. Souboutei Kowasubeshi(Souboutei Must be Destroyed). The manga started in 2016 and is currently ongoing in Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine.
Kuma’s Quick Thoughts
This being only the second series by Kazuhiro Fujita to receives an anime adaption. I do have to say it makes me quite happy. Kazuhiro Fujita has to be one of the most underrated authors of this generation. Mainly in the west, I’d assume. But considering Kazuhiro Fujita has had 3 different manga. That almost has over 300 chapters each. He has been an author that has been constantly producing/making manga since the 90’s. But none of those long-running manga he has made over the years has ever received a proper anime adaption(ignoring the 90’s Ushio to Tora OVA) until now. I do not know what triggered it but Kazuhiro Fujita is finally having his manga receive the anime adaptions they deserve. I do hope these adaptions make it so that he is an author that gets noticed a bit more in the west.
