Signal.Md is producing the Dragon Goes House-Hunting Adaptation Fantasy Anime.
Animation studio Signal. MD announced Saturday it is producing the previously announced anime adaptation of Kawo Tanuki and Dragon Goes House-Hunting (Dragon, Ie o Kau.) manga by artist Choco Aya. The studio also announced the anime would be a TV anime series.
Haruki Kasugamori (Dia Horizon (Kabu), Hitorigurashi no Shōgakusei, Lunatan: 1-Mannen no Himitsu) is directing the anime at Signal.MD (Napping Princess, Atom The Beginning), and Shiori Asuka (Lunatan: 1-Mannen no Himitsu) and 蘇詩宜 (name romanization currently unconfirmed) are designing the characters. Kyōhei Matsuno (You Don’t Know Gunma Yet, Lunatan: 1-Mannen no Himitsu) is composing the music at Pony Canyon.
Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:
When a dragon fails to live up to the fearsome standards set for him, his family kicks him out. He embarks on a quest to find a new home, but soon finds that life on the road is no place for a cowardly beast of legend. In a fantasy world full of elves, dwarves, and other mythical creatures, where everyone wants a piece of him—literally!—the frustrations of house-hunting reach a whole new level.
The manga published in December 2016 in the magazine Monthly Comic Garden of Mag Garden. In its quarterly financial report in October 2017, Mag Garden’s parent company IG Port revealed the manga had been an especially popular title.
