Originally teased back in March of this year, Chihiro Yamamoto has been cast as Rikka Isurugi, a woman born and raised by a secluded ninja clan. Rikka will have to deal with the arrival of a girl with mysterious power name Miya while also trying to avenger her father’s death under the guise of the titular Black Fox.
