The anime adaptation of A Centaur’s Life will begin broadcast this July. The series will air on Japan’s Tokyo MX and other stations, with no western release announced as of this time. Based on the slice-of-life manga that began its run in Monthly Comic Ryu back in February 2011, the anime will be produced by Animation Company Emon in cooperation with Encourage Films.
The series is directed by Naoyuki Konno with Fumitoshi Oizaki supervising the overall series. The animation will be directed by Sakae Shibuya, while series composition is credited to Touko Machida.
At the center of A Centaur’s Life are its three main leading ladies, including the awkward, anxious centaur Himeno Kimihara (L), the rough-and-tumble Nozomi Gokuraku (center), and the perennially cool Kyoko Naraku (R).
Here’s how the manga’s English publisher Seven Seas Entertainment describes the overall plot of the series:
“Being a teenager is never easy… especially for a centaur! Himeno is a sweet, shy girl, who like many teens her age, struggles with the trials and tribulations of attending high school. The difference is she’s a centaur; but she’s not alone. In fact, all of her classmates are supernatural creatures, sporting either horns, wings, tails, halos, or some other unearthly body appendage. Yet despite their fantastical natures, Himeno and her best friends-the dragon-winged Nozomi, and Kyoko with her spiraled horns-are down-to-earth, fun-loving teenagers who grapple with issues of life and love in a mostly normal daily school setting.”
