The upcoming Sasaki and Peeps anime adaptation has received its first full-length trailer, which introduces the titular duo and the latter’s ability to take them across worlds. Displays of magic and a montage of the supporting cast are also shown.

Aside from the trailer, there’s also a key visual, more cast info, and a newly announced January 2024 premiere window. The cast additions include Miyu Tomita as Elsa, Inori Minase as Magical Pink, and Ryoutarou Okiayu as Akutsu. 

Sasaki and Peeps is based on the MF Bunko J light novel series written by Buncololi and illustrated by Kantoku. The first volume was released in 2021, and volume eight will arrive on January 25 next year. Yen Press describes the plot as:

SWORDS AND SORCERY! PSYCHIC BATTLES?! MAGICAL GIRLS?!?! Tired and unfulfilled by his dead-end job, Sasaki decides to adopt Peeps, an adorable pet Java sparrow. Peeps, however, is really Piercarlo, a powerful sage from another world! After Peeps bestows Sasaki with magic and the ability to cross worlds, the two decide to export household items for profit in pursuit of a leisurely lifestyle. But when Sasaki’s new magic gets him mixed up in a whole other kind of supernatural struggle back in Japan, will it destroy his chances at realizing the relaxing life of his dreams?

Sasaki and Peeps, which began in 2018 as a web novel that was published on Kakuyomu and Shousetsuka ni Narou, has also inspired a manga by Oshou Pureji. The anime will have its world premiere at Anime NYC on November 18.
