posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the television anime of the Rust-Eater Bisco (Sabikui Bisco) light novel series by Shinji Cobkubo (Kobukubo) began streaming the second full promotional video for the anime on Friday. The video reveals and previews the anime's opening theme song "Kaze no Oto Sae Kikoenai" (Even the Wind is Silent), and also reveals the anime's January 10 premiere date.
The story is set in Japan after a "Rusting Wind" has coroded everything. People live in fear of the rust that corrodes cities and life in general. A boy named Bisco Akaboshi from the despised Mushroom Guardian tribe embarks on a journey to obtain the "Rust-Eating" mushroom — a miracle drug that purifies all rust — to save his dying teacher.
During his journey, Bisco encounters Miro Nekoyanagi, a good-looking young doctor at Imihama, and together they search for a countermeasure against the rust consuming Miro's beloved big sister.
The cast includes:
- Ryōta Suzuki as Bisco Akaboshi
- Natsuki Hanae as Miro Nekoyanagi
- Reina Kondo as Paū Nekoyanagi
- Miyu Tomita as Chiroru Ōchagama
- Shiro Saito as Jabi
- Kenjiro Tsuda as Kurokawa
Atsushi Ikariya is directing the anime at OZ with assistant director Daisuke Mataga. Sadayuki Murai is supervising and writing the series scripts. Ai Asari and Ikariya are designing the characters, and Asari and Norie Igawa are serving as chief animation directors. Yi Hui Zhang is also serving as animation director. Takeshi Ueda (AA=) and Hinako Tsubakiyama are composing the music.
Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko imprint launched the novel series with illustrations by K Akagishi and world-building art by mocha in 2018, and published the sixth volume last June. The light novel series was the first to top both the overall ranking and the new work ranking in the same year of the Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi book. Yūsuke Takahashi serialized a manga adaptation on Square Enix's Manga Up! website from 2019 to 2020.
Update: English title updated.
