WHITE FOX anime reveals trailer, visual, main cast, staff

A website opened on Thursday to announce the television anime adaptation of Satoshi Mizukami's Sengoku Youko (Warring States Yōko) manga. The website revealed the anime's visual, promotional video, main cast, staff, and January 2024 premiere.


Mizukami also drew an illustration to commemorate the announcement:


The anime's cast includes:

Sōma Saitō as Jinka
Yūki Takada as Tama
Ryōhei Kimura as Shinsuke
Tomoyo Kurosawa as Shakugan
Hiroki Nanami as Senya
Maaya Uchida as Tsukiko

The anime will premiere in January 2024 on the TOKYO MX, ABC TV, Mētele, and BS Asahi channels. The anime will have two arcs — the "Yo Naoshi Kyōdai-hen" (World Reform Siblings Arc) and "Sen Ma Konton-hen" (Thousand Demons Chaos Arc) — and will run for three cours (quarter of a year).

Masahiro Aizawa (Hakyū Hōshin Engi) is directing the anime at WHITE FOX. Jukki Hanada (Steins;Gate) is in charge of series scripts, Yousuke Okuda (In the Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki) is designing the characters, and Evan Call (Violet Evergarden) is in charge of music.

Tokyopop licensed the manga and published its second volume in English on July 11. Tokyopop describes the manga's story:

The world is divided into two factions: humans and monsters called katawara. Despite being a katawara, Tama loves humans and vows to protect them from evil, even if it means fighting her own kind. Her brother Jinka, however, hates humans, despite mostly being one. The siblings are joined by a cowardly swordsman named Shinsuke, who wants to learn how to become strong.

Mizukami launched the manga in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Blade magazine in 2007 and moved online at the magazine's website, after the magazine ceased its publication in 2014. Mag Garden published the manga's 17th and final compiled book volume in 2016.

There will be releases for six volumes of the Sengoku Youko Shinsōban (New Edition) starting on November 9. Mizukami will draw the cover for the new volumes.
