Crunchyroll recently announced plans to stream the TV anime adaptation of Satoshi Mizukami’s Sengoku Youko manga, and now we know when it will kick off in Japan. According to the official website and social media channels, the series will start its broadcast in Japan on January 10, 2024, and will air for three cours (quarters of a year).
Sengoku Youko was previously penciled in for January 2024 in August.
Here’s how Crunchyroll describes the series:
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.
