Dark Gathering Cast Comments

Yoyoi Hozuki

“This time, I will play the role of Yoyoi Hozuki. My name is treasure Yu Shinohara. I’ve always liked scary stories and occult stories, so when I heard about the audition for “Dark Gathering”, I read the original story and was overwhelmed by the worldview, which is interesting! I want to do it!! And I felt destined for Yoyoi-chan…! I will do my best so that everyone can enjoy Horror × Battle. Let’s Go! Strike!

Hanazawa Kana

“I’m not very good at horror, and I’m scared even if I take Dark Gathering without exception, but when I get involved in the story through Eiko-chan, who actively enjoys psychic phenomena (excited!?). Maybe it’s because I’m a character with both quirks and quirks, but I’m strangely okay!

Eiko-chan, thank you very much!!! It’s a scary but compelling story, so please look forward to it, not only for fans of the original work but also for those who know it for the first time!”

Hanazawa Kana

Nobunaga Shimazaki

“No matter how many times I’ve been in a bad situation, he never gets used to it and gives me fresh reactions, I love him. Most of the time, Hotaru gives a big reaction, so it might be easy to watch even for people who aren’t good at horror.

So, I would appreciate it if you could enjoy it together with the original!”

Rina Kawaguchi

“I’m an unparalleled horror lover, and when I auditioned for this work, I was enthusiastic, saying. “I want to be involved in this work!” So, on the day I heard from my manager that I had been chosen for the role of Ai-chan, I vividly remember going home crying with joy on the train I think it’s the best horror entertainment work that you can’t find anywhere else! I would like many people to see it.”

Where to Watch Dark Gathering?

Dark Gathering has not officially made any announcements related to broadcast and streaming, but we are expecting the anime to be streamed on Crunchyroll or HIDIVE.


The manga chapters of Dark Gathering are longer than Berserk, which means that either the episodes will be of longer duration or they will be split into halves, no matter what the studio decides to do, as it’s a new work of an author who just got recognition recently, we should try watching to respect his efforts.
