Okami Kakushi depicts a mystery and horror experienced by 16 year boy Hiroshi Kusumi, who lives in Jyogamachi Town where newly-developed area and traditional area are divided by a river. The anime is slated to be aired from January 2010 on TBS, BS-TBS and Sun TV
The opening song "Tokino Muko, Maboroshino Sora(Over the time, Beyond the sky)"is done by FictiionJunction, which will be their second single as a group.

The song has kind of vigorous and liveliness with a vocal of four FictionJuntion divas. Hope you enjoy the anime, and our song. I really look forward to it.
The ending song "Tsuki Shirube(Sign of the Moon)" is written and composed by Takumi Ozawa and sung by Yuuka Nanri, known for Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and .hack//Roots. Nanri was once a vocalist of FictionJunction and became solo singer in 2009.
Here's my new song, which needed a huge effort to finish this inspiring song. It's my honor to join Okami Kakushi by this song. Hope this Tsuki Shirube will be loved by fans, as same as the animation.
Other voice actors do the voice of same characters continuing from the game, which surely entertain us with same story, same voice but different touch.
