The Sengoku Youko anime will air for three cours, starting with the “Yonaoshi Kyodai-hen” (World Reform Siblings Arc) in January 2024. Crunchyroll previously announced plans to stream the series as it airs in Japan for members in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East and CIS.

Here’s how Crunchyroll describes it:

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.
