On Tuesday, Adult Swim announced that the upcoming horror anime miniseries Housing Complex C will be premiering on Toonami this coming October 1st at Midnight Eastern/Pacific. The series will be four episodes in length and run through the month of October.
The announcement was accompanied with the reveal of the series’ key visual.
According to Broadway World TV, Housing Complex C centers around Kimi, who lives in a small housing complex located in the sleepy seaside town of Kurosaki. But trouble seems to follow Kimi wherever she goes, and soon, horrific incidents begin to occur…is an ancient evil stalking the residents of Housing Complex C?
Housing Complex C is created by amphibian (who is handling script and original concept), directed by Yuji Nara, and animated by Studio Akatsuki. Jason DeMarco of Warner Bros Discovery and Maki Terashima-Futura of Production I.G USA serve as the show’s executive producers.
During my interview with Maki Terashima-Furuta at Anime Expo 2022, she had this to say regarding Housing Complex C:
So, Housing Complex C is an original concept. [The show’s creator], he’s a game creator that doesn’t reveal his real biological name, he goes by the nickname “amphibian”. He wrote the story and the story [of Housing Complex C] is inspired by Lovecraft, which we all are fans of. It’s a horror show but it’s a miniseries, so there’s only four episodes. And my goal, and I’ve been telling Jason this ever since we started producing Uzumaki together, is to start a horror anime genre on Adult Swim. So, originally Uzumaki was originally going to be the first one and then we’re going to have more horror anime following that. But because of the delay of Uzumaki, Housing Complex C is going to be the first one that’s going to come out before Uzumaki. I can’t talk too much about the story because I don’t want to spoil it, but when you see the video message [revealed at the panel], he talks a little bit about it. But it’s really scary.
During the Production I.G panel at AX 2022, amphibian released a message regarding Housing Complex C, which you can see below.
