HOUSTON, TX — February 17, 2020 — HIDIVE announced today that it has acquired streaming rights to We Rent Tsukumogami, from TMS Entertainment (Baki, Dr. STONE, D.Gray-man), for audiences in the United States, Canada, and Latin American countries. The supernatural comedy series streams to HIDIVE subscribers beginning Monday, February 24, 2020, at 17:30 UTC.
In a place and time where disasters are commonplace, Oko and Seiji cater to local customers at Izumoya, their renowned rental shop for everyday items. Mixed with Izumoya’s regular inventory are tsukumogami, ancient spirits disguised as ordinary objects. Unlike most people, Oko and Seiji can see and listen to the spirits, and Izumoya becomes a hub of paranormal activity as numerous tsukumogami end up in the shop. And when Oko and Seiji spread the supernatural love by lending their “special” tsukumogami to unwitting customers, things get really interesting!
Produced by studio Telecom Animation Film (Orange, All Out!!, Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas), We Rent Tsukumogami is directed by Masahiko Murata (Serial Experiments Lain, Baby Steps, Corpse Princess: Kuro). The series stars Junya Enoki (Outburst Dreamer Boys, Beautiful Bones -Sakurako’s Investigation-, My Love Story!!) as Seiji and Mikako Komatsu (Land of the Lustrous, Gourmet Girl Graffiti, The “Hentai” Prince and the Stony Cat) as Oko.
