Nearly twenty years on from the manga’s debut, the Ōoku: The Inner Chambers anime is being directed by Noriyuki Abe (Kochoki) at Studio DEEN, with series composition by Rika Takasugi, character designs by Yoko Sato (Love of Kill) and music by Kenji Kawai (Eden of the East).


VIZ Media, which publishes the manga’s official English version, describes the series as such:


In Edo period Japan (1603 to 1868), a strange new disease called the Redface Pox has begun to prey on the country’s men. Within eighty years of the first outbreak, the male population has fallen to a quarter of the total female population. Women have taken on all the roles traditionally granted to men, even that of the Shogun. The men, precious providers of life, are carefully protected and the most beautiful of the men are sent to serve in the Shogun’s Inner Chambers.
