SANTA MONICA, Calif.
— The first two seasons of the popular franchise that has spawned several anime, video games and manga series, are now in theaters and on home video, with anime adaptation of the hit Japanese video game franchise “Touhou” starring the likes of Kōhei Horikoshi, Kenji Kamiyama and Tetsuo Yamashita set to hit theaters on Feb. 16.
The anime also features the voice of Yuuichi Miyazawa, the voice actor of the main protagonist of the anime series “Majin Tantei Gurren Lagann,” who will appear as the main character in the movie.
“Tohou” first aired on TV in Japan in 2009, and has been streamed on Netflix, Amazon Video and other platforms since.

The series has spawned numerous anime and manga titles, including a live-action film in 2018, an anime adaptation for the Nintendo Switch console in 2020 and a spin-off anime, “Toukiden,” in 2020.
The original Touhou is set in an alternate universe in which an ancient demon known as Touhou appears in the world.
It’s a universe in the Touhou series where demons have risen to power, and the Touhou world is dominated by the “Kagura Clan,” a clan of the titular characters that controls the demon world.
In this universe, the series follows a young girl named Touhou and her friends, who use magic to fight evil.
The “Tougou” franchise, based on the popular light novel series, has spawned over 40 spin-offs, including the hit “Tokyo Ghoul,” a live action film starring Hideki Kitano, the director of the upcoming “Titanic,” and a television anime in 2018.
The franchise has been sold over 20 million copies worldwide, with the film “Trouble Maker” set to make its U.S. debut in 2019.
The TV anime series, based off the game, is set for release in 2020, and will feature the voices of the characters.
The anime is directed by Yuichi Nakamura and features animation by Studio DEEN, as well as original music by Yuuko Kondo.
The film adaptation is set up by Tatsunoko Productions and will be written and produced by Tomoko Ito, who has also directed a number of anime.
The studio also announced the release of the film’s first Blu-ray Disc and digital download on Monday.
The first anime season will be available in the United States on February 16, and is set on the fictional island of Touhou, where players can meet other players from the series.
