Sentai Filmworks has recently acquired the license to Phi-Brain ~ Kami no Puzzle, a paranormal thriller anime from Sunrise and director Junichi Sato (Sgt. Frog, Sailor Moon). Phi-Brain ~ Kami no Puzzle features characters designed by legendary animator Youhei Sasaki, with music done by Akio Izutsu. All 25 episodes of the horror anime will be streaming soon on Anime Network Online, to be followed by other outlets.
A more detailed description of the anime is provided by Sentai Filmworks’ Press Release:
Kaito Daimon would be a completely average high school student except for one thing: he’s a ‘demon’ at solving puzzles. Kaito’s so brilliant, in fact, that when he’s asked to take some ‘special’ tests of his unique ability, he immediately suspects that the test itself is a test. Kaito suddenly finds himself caught up in a lethal Philosopher’s Puzzle made by the sinister group POG, a murderous maze of trap upon trap, where failing to solve the secret correctly will result in death! Fortunately, Kaito’s skills prove up to the first test, both for himself AND his childhood friend Nanoha, who is also caught up in the deadly scheme. But now that he has been designated as a Solver, he is pulled into a new life where he must travel the world with other Solvers, attempting to solve the latest deadly riddles left by POG. There’s a new conundrum around every corner and each deception could lead to death, but once a riddle has been posed, you can count on Kaito to unfold, unravel and unlock it in PHI-BRAIN ~ KAMI NO PUZZLE!
