Karneval [カーニヴァル] is an upcoming anime series based on Touya Mikanagi's manga series. The anime will be directed by Suganuma Eiji [菅沼栄治] (Kodomo no Jikan, Mashiroiro Symphony) with animation production by Manglobe [マングローブ] (Hayate the Combat Butler, Deadman Wonderland).

Karneval will begin airing on Tokyo MX from the 7th April at 10:30PM JST.

Nai is mysterious individual that only seems to know his own name and that of a man named Karoku. The problem is he doesn't know where Karoku is, and the only hint he has is a strange 'Circus' bracelet. While searching for Karoku, Gai ends up rescuing a young boy named Gareki, who promises that he'll help him to find Karoku as thanks for saving him.

The two then end up getting involved with a national defense agency known as "Circus" through a train hijacking incident. This leads Nai to find out more and also opens up a whole new world that Gareki never even knew existed. But just who is Nai and why is he looking for Karaoku? Why does the 'Circus' agency exist?
