Twitch has a report and a trailer for the upcoming fantasy-action-comedy Kamogawa Horumo (or Battle League in Kyoto), about a group of college students who get caught up in a battle game called Horumo, in which the players utilize 100 spirits to defeat each other. Or, as Twitch's blurb states:

The story is about a group of university students who inevitably gets involved in playing a game of “Horumo” - a combat match where each person manipulates 100 spirits (referred to as “oni") to fight the opponent. Akira Abe, a freshman at Kyoto University student falls for his classmate Kyoko, and soon ends up at a mysterious club called “Kyoto University Azure Dragons”, which turns out to be one of the Horumo teams playing the mysterious (and somewhat absurd) game which started over 1,200 years ago in the Heian period. The heat rises as you see the 2,000 CGI created spirits wage fierce battles against the backdrop of breathtaking beautiful city of Kyoto. Let the battle begin!

Those CGI spirits are going to be created by anime studio Gonzo Digimation, and the film is being directed by Katsuhide Motoki, who directed the live-action adaptation of Gegege no Kitaro. Check out the trailer:


Looks like it could be good fun!
