Housing Complex C remains a mysterious entry in Toonami's original anime roster, with the horror series premiering this October and sharing a new trailer that gives anime fans a better idea when it comes to the terrifying tale's story. Taking place on a remote ocean town, it would seem that the threat facing our two young anime protagonists will hint at horrors that look as though they erupted from H.P. Lovecraft's mind. The new horror anime chose a good time to arrive as it will premiere in a few weeks during the spooky season.
The new original series from Adult Swim will air at midnight on Saturday, October 2nd, and if you don't want to stay up late, have no fear, because it will be streaming the next day on HBO Max, letting viewers watch the series in the daylight should the horror be too much for you. Housing Complex C is a completely original story, not based on a previous manga and/or light novel series, but taking a risk by creating a horror series within the realm of anime. Besides Junji Ito adaptations, there haven't been that many horror anime series, and we're crossing our fingers that this upcoming Toonami original will be able to light a spark just in time for spooky season.
The Official Adult Swim Twitter Account shared the new trailer for Housing Complex C, revealing that the anime protagonist, Kimi and Yuri, will be dealing with monstrous threats that come from the depths and have been lying in wait for the right opportunity to return:
Of course, Toonami is currently working on another popular horror adaptation, as Junji Ito's Uzumaki is still in production. While needing to be pushed back more than once, the series remains highly anticipated by fans, especially following the reveal of the animation style that perhaps is the most accurate adaptation of Ito's art to date.
If you're unfamiliar with this new terrifying tale, Adult Swim offered the following official description for the series that is looking to send shivers down the spines of anime fans:
"Trouble seems to follow Kimi wherever she goes. What evil horror lies in wait at "Housing Complex C" an original series directed by Yuji Nara with scripting and original concept by amphibian, and the animation studio is Akatsuki!"
