The official website of the anime adaptation of NisiOisin's Katanagatari novel has begun streaming a new 185-second promotional video. The anime will air as 12 monthly one-hour specials — one for each novel volume — starting on January 25. This anime will be the second one based on a NisiOisin work after Bakemonogatari.
The 12-volume novel centers on Shichika Yasuri, the seventh generational head of the Kyotō-ryū school of martial arts in medieval Japan. He and his older sister Nanami live on an isolated island, until a military advisor named Togame tells him of the final 12 swords forged by a legendary swordsmith. At Togame's bidding, Shichika embarks on a journey to find all 12 of the swords.
