It has been announced at the ongoing Jump Festa 2022 event that Kentaro Yabuki's manga series Ayakashi Triangle is getting an anime adaptation.
Ayakashi Triangle, sometimes abbreviated as AyaTri, is a Japanese fantasy, romantic comedy manga series written and illustrated by Kentaro Yabuki. It has been serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since June 2020. The manga has been licensed for English release in North America by Viz Media.
The series focuses on exorcist ninja Matsuri Kazamaki, who tries to defend his childhood friend, the Ayakashi Medium Suzu Kanade, from evil spirits. However, during a battle to save Suzu's life, Matsuri is turned into a girl after being cursed by Shirogane, the King of Ayakashi. This forces Matsuri to live publicly as a girl (while juggling his growing feelings for Suzu) until they are able to undo the curse.
Additional information such as cast and staff will be published as soon as they are made available.
Synopsis from MAL:
Matsuri Kazamaki and Suzu Kanade are childhood friends, bonded by their shared ability to see ayakashi—youkai in search of a life force to devour. However, in high school, their relationship deteriorates. As Suzu's one-sided feelings are growing, so is the difference in their ayakashi views: Matsuri considers all ayakashi a threat to his friend, while Suzu is an ayakashi medium—someone who exudes a significant amount of life force compared to the average human—and loves them all despite the risk.
When the two stumble upon a talking white cat named Shirogane, they are unaware that it is a four-hundred-year-old ayakashi known as the "King of Ayakashi." He is hell-bent on gaining even more power by devouring Suzu, but as Matsuri swoops in to try and save her by sealing Shirogane's powers, the ayakashi uses a jutsu to turn him into a girl instead!
Matsuri vows to protect Suzu from further harm as her best friend, but he must learn how to act like a girl until his grandfather—a famous wind jutsu exorcist ninja—can undo the jutsu. Meanwhile, Suzu must work out her romantic feelings for Matsuri now that he is no longer a boy. But when Matsuri takes the king as his pet, the future of the two friends seems uncertain.
