Orient‘s second cour began earlier this month as part of the Summer 2022 anime season. The first cour of Orient aired during the Winter 2022 anime season. 

The anime is based on the Kodansha-published manga by Magi creator Shinobu Ohtaka, which began serialization in 2018 in Kodansha’s Weekly Shounen Magazine before moving to Bessatsu Shounen Magazine in 2021. 16 tankoubon volumes have been published under the Kodansha Comics label as of July 2022.

New credits include Mika Funabashi (Blue Reflection Ray) as color designer and Matsumoto as co-character designer. A.C.G.T. is the animation production company. 

Meanwhile, the cast includes Yuuma Uchida as Musashi, Souma Saitou as Kojirou Kanemaki, Rie Takahashi as Tsugumi Hattori, and Satoshi Hino as Naotora Takeda. Joining in the second cour are Tomaki Maeno as Tatsuomi Uesugi, Natsuki Hanae as Kanetatsu Naoe, Yoshiki Nakajima as Masayuki Amakasu, Kouki Uchiyama as Akihiro Shimazu, Gakuto Kajiwara as Katsumi Amako, and Youko Hikasa as Kuroko Usami.
