Original TV Anime ONIPAN! Premieres this April


A new original TV anime ONIPAN! will premiere this April as part of the Spring 2022 anime season.

The series is the latest from Wit Studio who are largely known for their work on the earlier seasons of Attack on Titan as well as other titles like The Ancient Magus Bride and Vinland Saga.

The series follows three young oni girls in a world where humans and oni begrudgingly co-exist. Together, the three will become idols and with the ambiguous power of their “oni pan” will try and help the oni and humans get along.

A summary of the series from MyAnimeList can be found below.

Three oni-kids who, through the power of the onipan (a portmanteau of “oni” and “pantsu”) become human to help fix the relationship between humans and oni. The three girls transfer into a normal Tokyo high school to aid in their task and help fix their image by revitalizing the town, sometimes jumping headfirst into school events, and other times … becoming idols!

At the time of publishing, an English release of the series has yet to be announced.
