Sengoku Youko Anime Reveals Premiere Date


The upcoming three-cour Sengoku Youko anime adaptation will begin airing in Japan on January 10, 2024 (effectively January 11 at 12 AM JST), it has been announced. 

The Sengoku Youko manga by Satoshi Mizukami began serialization in Mag Garden’s Monthly Comic Blade in 2007 and came to an end 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!

So far, one “image” trailer and four character trailers for the anime have been released.
