Visual, 3-episode length also revealed

The official website for the Ikki Tousen franchise began streaming the main promotional video on Friday for the television anime adaptation of Yuji Shiozaki's Shin Ikki Tousen manga. The video reveals that the anime will premiere on May 17 and will have three total episodes. The first episode will have an early broadcast on March 27. The video also reveals and previews the Konomi Suzuki's theme song "Proud Stars."

The official website also revealed the show's main visual.

The video also reveals the show's main staff. Rion Kujo is directing the anime at Arms. Masaya Honda is writing and overseeing the series scripts. Rin-Sin and Tsutomu Miyazawa are the character designers, and Yasuharu Takanashi is composing the music.

The anime will star:

Shiozaki's original Ikki Tousen manga centers around Hakufu Sonsaku, a high school student who possesses a magatama that allows her to channel the spirit of the warrior Sun Ce from China's Three Kingdoms era. She fights students from other high schools, each bearing their own magatama and embodying a different hero from the era. Shiozaki launched Shin Ikki Tousen in Shonengahosha's Young King Ours magazine in November 2015.

The main manga has inspired four previous television anime and five previous OVAs. Ikki Tousen: Western Wolves is the newest anime entry in the franchise, and it shipped on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in February 2019. The anime's three episodes also aired on AT-X from January to March 2019.
