The Last Summoner (known in Japan as Saigyo no Shoukanshi), a Chinese animated adaptation based on the web comic Zui Hou De Zhao Huan Shi, is receiving a Japanese language release in Japan on Fuji on Demand in January of 2023, and now key cast members, the theme song performers, and a teaser video (below) have been revealed for the new version.
In the Japanese language version, voice actor Nobuhiko Okamoto plays the male lead Ah Jie, while voice actor Atsumi Tanezaki plays the female lead Dora. The opening theme, entitled “With”, is performed by NIGHTMARE, while the ending theme, entitled “Gunjou” (“Ultramarine”), is performed by Muvidat.
Crunchyroll currently streams the Chinese language version of The Last Summoner, and describes the story of the series as follows:
Centuries ago, beings walked the planet that could summon souls. When young Ah Jie accidentally attracts the goddess Dora, he’s thrust into the supernatural world of these magical Summoners. Called to join forces with the Guardians, he must confront their greatest enemy—the Destroyers. All he wants is to conjure the best ramen recipe, but he’ll learn you can’t fight destiny!
