Robinson Haruhara's Senyū Fantasy Comedy Manga Gets Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Web adventures of hero & palace warrior also serialized in Jump Square magazine

A bonus second-year anniversary installment of Robinson Haruhara's fantasy battle comedy manga Senyū. announced on Monday that there will be an anime adaptation of the manga. In the story, a gigantic hole suddenly opened up in the world one day, and demons appeared. The king thinks that this portends the return of the demon king Rukimedesu, who was sealed away by the hero Kureashion a millenium ago. The king decreed that the descendants of the hero must take on the threat, and 75 people showed up. Hero No. 45 (Aruba) and a sadistic palace warrior (Rosu) team up, and their adventure begins.

Haruhara launched the manga on the Nico Nico Seiga website in 2010, and began serializing it in Shueisha's Jump Square magazine also this year. The anime will cover the first arc of the web version, and Jump Square will announce the voice cast in the next issue on September 4.
