posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

The official website for Studio DEEN's original television anime series Kochoki: Wakaki Nobunaga revealed the show's promotional video, cast, visuals, and July premiere on Friday. The anime will air in Japan on Tokyo MX, AT-X, WOWOW, and BS-Fuji, and will stream on the d Anime Store.

The anime will star:

Yūsuke Kobayashi as Oda Nobunaga

Yūma Uchida as Ikeda Tsuneoki

Kaito Ishikawa as Oda Nobuyuki

The anime will reunite the staff of the Hakuōki anime franchise, including character designer Atsuko Nakajima, script supervisor Ryota Yamaguchi, and scriptwriter Megumu Sasano. Additionally, Kaoru Sawada (Diamond Daydreams, Junji Ito "Collection") is also writing the scripts, and Noriyuki Abe (Yū Yū Hakusho, Bleach, GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka, The Heroic Legend of Arslan) is directing the series. Yūsuke Shirato (Lost Song) is composing the music at Flying Dog.

The anime will give a "bold interpretation" on historical figure Oda Nobunaga starting with his youth as an early teen. The series will follow him and his rivalry with his younger brother Nobuyuki.

Author Sasano launched a novel adaptation in Tokuma Shoten's Animage magazine on January 10. The novel serves as both a prequel and a spinoff.
