Yuuki Kaji Stars as an Assassin in Osiris no Tenbin Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
August 1 debut of assassin who meets targets to decide whether to execute them

The 10-episode original anime Osiris no Tenbin (The Balance of Osiris) will premiere this Saturday, August 1 at midnight. It is the first original anime on the newly revamped Fuji TV On Demand service.

The dark suspense story is set in the modern day and centers around an assassin enshrouded in mystery. To decide whether to execute an assignment or not, he personally meets the target before handing down his final judgment. The story follows the drama that comes from his conversations with the target.

Due to certain circumstances, the left side of the assassin's body has hardly any internal organs. He is weak and unskilled at guns, but he does possess psychokinesis.

The taglines on the image above read: "The weakest assassin ever…. But his power is unrivaled." and "The story of his solitary battle."

Yūki Kaji plays the assassin, and each episode will feature guest voice cast members. The cast includes Yoshimasa Hosoya, Ryōhei Kimura, Kenichi Suzumura, Daisuke Namikawa, Mamoru Miyano, Jun Fukuyama, Miyuki Sawashiro.

Yūsuke Fujikawa (Nobunaga Concerto) is producing and directing the anime, and Takeo Kasai (Sci-Fi Harry) is scripting.

Fuji TV is hosting a free one-minute promotional video, although it is viewable only in Japan.
