The official website for the television anime of Kazuhiro Fujita‘s Karakuri Circus (Le Cirque de Karakuri) manga began streaming a new promotional video for the anime on Friday. The video reveals and previews the new opening theme song “Over me” by Lozareena, which is the opening song for the anime’s third cours (quarter of a year). Lozareena previously performed the first ending theme song “Marionette” for the anime.
The anime premiered on Amazon in Japan last October. Amazon Prime is exclusively streaming the anime in Japan and overseas.
Amazon describes the story:
After inheriting the family fortune, eleven-year-old Masaru Saiga is targeted by kidnappers armed with bizarre and deadly puppets. He escapes once aided by circus employee Narumi Kato, but the kidnappers soon catch up with them. Just when all seems lost, the two are saved by the mysterious Shirogane who wields her own marionette. From then on, the trio’s fates become inexorably intertwined…
Studio VOLN (Ushio & Tora, Idol Incidents) is animating the television anime series for Twin Engine.
