Mekakucity Actors (メカクシティアクターズ Mekakushiti Akutāzu) is an anime series produced by the studio Shaft in collaboration with Aniplex of America and 1st PLACE, directed by Akiyuki Shinbo, and based on Jin (Shizen no Teki-P)'s "Kagerou Project".[1] The series has 12 episodes.[2] It is a sequel to the Music[3], Manga[4][5], and Novel[6] Routes[7].

At the premiere of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie -Rebellion- in America, Shinbo stated that they were working on finishing off their current series Kizumonogatari and that once that was set, the production of Mekakucity Actors would start. It was later announced that the anime's broadcasting would start on the 12th of April, 2014[8] at midnight. The anime broadcasted on TokyoMX, BS11, and Niconico.

Jin stated, in the interview found in Comic Gene's February 2014 issue, that he would be the scriptwriter of the anime, as well as managing the background music himself, as suggested by Akiyuki Shinbo, and that the story of the anime will be slightly different from the manga and novel. It was also stated that the character designs will have a different charm from Shidu's and Wannyanpu's designs.

The theme song of the anime is 「daze」 (デイズ) by MARiA from GARNiDELiA and composed by Jin. The ending song is 「days」 performed by Lia. The music video for it was drawn by Shidu.[9]


A story based on the popular series of songs by Jin (Shizen no Teki-P) titled "Kagerou Project". Shintaro Kisaragi – a NEET who shut himself inside his room for 2 years – has been living his life normally until he met a cyber girl named Ene, who appeared in his computer screen when someone anonymously sent him a mysterious e-mail one year ago. One day, Ene messes with Shintaro's computer, which causes the computer to break and forces Shintaro to enter the outside world for first time in two years. He heads to the department store, where a group of criminals break in and hold the people inside hostage for ransom. Here he comes in contact with a group of teenagers calling themselves the "Mekakushi Dan" (メカクシ団?, lit. "Blindfold Gang"), who stop the robbery with their mysterious eye powers and force Shintaro into joining their group.
