Orient Manga To Get Anime Adaptation

The Orient manga by Magi creator Shinobu Ohtaka is receiving an anime adaptation. 

An announcement was made on the Shonen Magazine website, and an announcement video was also released on YouTube. Staff, cast, animation production studio, and release date details are currently unknown. 

The Orient manga began serialization in 2018 in Kodansha’s Weekly Shounen Magazine. Starting from February, it will be serialized in the monthly Bessatsu Shounen Magazine (also by Kodansha) instead, beginning with Bessatsu’s March issue.  

Kodansha describes the story as:

Ancient Japanese warriors, invaders from another world, and … motorcycles?! You don’t want to miss this crazy, action-packed shonen manga by the creator of Magi!

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
