Momo and Okarun join the Ghostbusters?!

A collaboration visual between DAN DA DAN written by Yukinobu Tatsu and the GHOSTBUSTERS: FROZEN EMPIRE movie has been released. The visual was drawn by Science SARU. The collaboration visual will be distributed as a limited edition postcard at AnimeJapan 2024, which will be held from March 23 to 24 in Japan!

The collaborative visual depicts Momo and Okarun standing in a frozen world, just like in “GHOSTBUSTERS: FROZEN EMPIRE” and using the “proton pack” a gadget familiar from “Ghostbusters”, to burst a beam of light.

The collaboration was realized because the Spengler family, including Momo and Okarun from DAN DA DAN and Phoebe and Trevor from “GHOSTBUSTERS“, have in common that they fight with paranormal powers against overwhelming monsters that transcend comprehension.

This series is adapted from the already popular manga written and illustrated by Yukinobu Tatsu. The latter currently boasts over 370 million views on Shueisha’s Shonen Jump Plus app, and more than 3.2 million volumes in print.

DAN DA DAN a paranormal manga by Yukinobu Tatsu is serialized in Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ and an English language version is available from Viz Media. The anime is scheduled for October 2024 and Crunchyroll describes the story as follows:

This is a story about Momo, a high school girl who comes from a family of spirit mediums, and her classmate Okarun, an occult fanatic. After Momo rescues Okarun from being bullied, they begin talking. However, an argument ensues between them since Momo believes in ghosts but denies aliens exist, and Okarun believes in aliens but denies ghosts exist.

To prove to each other what they believe in is real, Momo goes to an abandoned hospital where a UFO has been spotted and Okarun goes to a tunnel rumored to be haunted. To their surprise, they each encounter overwhelming paranormal activities that transcend comprehension. Amid these predicaments, Momo awakens her hidden power and Okarun gains the power of a curse to overcome these new dangers! Their fateful love begins as well!?

The story of the occult battle and adolescence starts!
