The staff for the television anime of Tsuyoshi Yasuda's The Blue Wolves of Mibu (Ao no Miburo) manga revealed on Friday another cast member, teaser visual, video featuring the main characters, and fall 2024 premiere.


Tomokazu Sugita plays Kondō Isami, who brings together the Shinsengumi:


Shūichirō Umeda stars as the protagonist Nio. Yōhei Azakami plays Hijikata Toshizō, Kenshō Ono plays Okita Sōji, Chiaki Kobayashi plays Saitō Hajime, Shun Horie plays Tanaka Tarō, and Ryōta Takeuchi plays Serizawa Kamo.

Kumiko Habara (I'm Standing on 1,000,000 Lives., I'm the Villainess, So I'm Taming the Final Boss, Surgeon Elise) is directing the anime at Maho Film. Kenta Ihara (Gamera -Rebirth-, I'm the Villainess, So I'm Taming the Final Boss, Uncle From Another World) is in charge of the series scripts. Yūko Ōba (I'm the Villainess, So I'm Taming the Final Boss, I'm Standing on 1,000,000 Lives.) and Miyako Nishida (My Unique Skill Makes Me OP even at Level 1, If It’s for My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord) are designing the characters. Toshiki Kameyama is the sound director. Yuki Hayashi is composing the music.

Kodansha USA Publishing licensed the manga in English, and it describes the story:

Nio is an orphan who can't help dreaming of a better world. In this action-packed manga, he meets two men who show him how much a few swords can change history.

This riveting samurai series from the acclaimed creator of DAYS shares its setting with Rurouni Kenshin and chronicles the founding of the Shinsengumi by handsome and volatile men fighting for justice...and for themselves!

Yasuda launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in October 2021. Kodansha published the 11th compiled book volume on November 16. Kodansha USA Publishing plans to start printing the manga in English in spring 2024.

Yasuda's DAYS soccer manga also inspired a television anime in 2016 and five original video anime episodes from 2017 to 2018. Yasuda's Over Drive bicycling manga inspired a TV anime in 2007.
