A New Key Visual for Somali and the Forest Spirit TV Anime Revealed

Somali and the Forest Sprit

Satelight studio has just revealed a new key visual for Somali and the Forest Spirit TV anime along with a new PV. Will air in January 2020.

Somali and the Forest Spirit is a manga series by Yako Gureishi. The manga has been publishing in Web Comic Zenyon from Apr 26, 2015, and is currently being published. The manga has an average user rating of 7.81 which is pretty nice. A new key visual for the upcoming anime has just been released with a new teaser promotional video which you can see right down below.

Somali and the Forest Spirit TV Anime Details

My Anime List describes the synopsis as,

The world is ruled by spirits, goblins and all manner of strange creatures.
Human beings are persecuted, to the very point of extinction.
One day, a golem and a lone human girl meet.
This is a record of the pair; one a member of a ruined race, the other a watchman of the forest. It tells of their travels together, and of the bond between father and daughter.

A very peculiar synopsis indeed. If the manga could be described in a single word, it would be “soothing” according to a user review. The conclusion which I derived after reading many reviews, I’d say this could be the water you’re looking for in a desert with a parched throat. Here’s the new key visual, looks promising.
