posted on by Egan Loo

The official website for Twin Engine's first original television anime Shine On! Bakumatsu Boys (Bucchigire!) debuted the anime's first full promotional video and key visual on Thursday. The video announces the anime's main cast and July 8 premiere.

The main cast members are:

The anime will premiere on the Tokyo MX channel on July 8 at 10:30 p.m. (9:30 a.m. EDT), and then it will run on BS11 at 11:30 p.m. that day.

The story is set in the era when samurai rule Japan. However, the Shinsengumi police force has been all but wiped out by an unknown foe, save one survivor. Seven criminals have been chosen as substitutes for the Shinsengumi. To ensure law and order in Kyoto, a top-secret replacement operation is set in motion.

Shaman King manga creator Hiroyuki Takei is drafting the original character designs, which Masafumi Yokota is adapting for animation.

Amazon Prime Video and Hikari TV will stream the anime in Japan simultaneously with its television broadcast.
