The newest Toonami original series, Housing Complex C will be premiering this October 1 at Midnight EDT/PDT. The series will be four episodes in length and will be airing through the month of October. With less than 2 weeks to go until the premiere, Toonami, Adult Swim, and Warner Bros Discovery has been ramping up promotion for their newest original production.
During the Sept. 17 edition of Toonami, which featured the season 2 finale of Primal and the presentations of Batman: Hush and Batman: Mask of the Phantasm to commemorate Batman Day, Toonami revealed a new official trailer for Housing Complex C. The trailer also revealed that show will be available for streaming on HBO Max the following day. On a related note, Adult Swim Canada will also be airing Housing Complex C, the second anime original (after Blade Runner: Black Lotus) to be airing north of the border.
On Monday, September 19, the full schedule for the October 1st edition of Toonami can be seen below. Of particular note, reruns of Made in Abyss will be airing back-to-back for at least the next two weeks.
Also on Monday, the English dub cast for Housing Complex C was also revealed via a press release on Warner Bros Discovery’s page. The show will star Xanthe Huynh as Kimi alongside Kayli Mills, and Jake Eberle. The dub cast will also include Sean Chiplock, Suzie Yeung, Doug Stone, Michael Sorich, Caitlin Glass, Janis Carroll, Bob Carter, and Ryan Colt Levy.
Sean Chiplock SOON @ Retro Game Con (Syracuse, NY) on Twitter: “Housing Complex C is a wonderfully demented trip into the potential of slow-burn horror, and I’m grateful as always to be a part of something unique! You can hear me as the voice of SEIICHI and a few other males when the final product releases! #HousingComplexC https://t.co/w84pfjBqkP / Twitter”

According to the synopsis, “Housing Complex C centers on Kimi, who lives in a small, low-cost housing complex located in the seaside town of Kurosaki where trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes, and horrific incidents begin to occur. Is an ancient evil stalking the residents of Housing Complex C?”
Housing Complex C is created by amphibian (who is handling script and original concept), directed by Yuji Nara, and animated by Studio Akatsuki. Jason DeMarco of Toonami and Warner Bros Discovery and Maki Terashima-Futura of Production I.G USA serve as the show’s executive producers.
During my interview with Maki Terashima-Furuta at Anime Expo 2022, she had this to say regarding Housing Complex C:
So, Housing Complex C is an original concept. [The show’s creator], he’s a game creator that doesn’t reveal his real biological name, he goes by the nickname “amphibian”. He wrote the story and the story [of Housing Complex C] is inspired by Lovecraft, which we all are fans of. It’s a horror show but it’s a miniseries, so there’s only four episodes. And my goal, and I’ve been telling Jason this ever since we started producing Uzumaki together, is to start a horror anime genre on Adult Swim. So, originally Uzumaki was originally going to be the first one and then we’re going to have more horror anime following that. But because of the delay of Uzumaki, Housing Complex C is going to be the first one that’s going to come out before Uzumaki. I can’t talk too much about the story because I don’t want to spoil it, but when you see the video message [revealed at the panel], he talks a little bit about it. But it’s really scary.
