The Sengoku Youko manga by Satoshi Mizukami is getting a TV anime adaptation that will premiere in January 2024. The anime series will fully adapt the manga with three cours.

An image visual and trailer have been released.

Masahiro Aizawa (Hakyuu Houshin Engi) is directing the Sengoku Youko anime at White Fox with Jukki Hanada (Steins;Gate) as series composer, Yousuke Okuda (In the Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki) as character designer, and Evan Call (Violet Evergarden) as music composer. The cast includes:

Souma Saitou as Jinka
Yuuki Takada as Tama
Ryouhei Kimura as Shinsuke
Tomoyo Kurosawa as Shakugan
Hiroki Nanami as Senya
Maaya Uchida as Tsukiko

The Sengoku Youko manga began serialization in Mag Garden’s Monthly Comic Blade in 2007 and ended in 2016 with 17 tankoubon volumes. INKR describes the plot as:

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. When the group uncovers a plot to experiment on humans and transform them into monsters, they vow to defeat whoever is behind it… Even if it means battling an entire army of warriors. The people they meet, places they see, and creatures they battle will be legendary!
