Another new cast member is in place for The Blue Wolves of Mibu, the upcoming anime that will adapt the manga by DAYS author Tsuyoshi Yasuda. The latest announcement has Shun Horie (Migi in Migi and Dali) joining the cast as Taro Tanaka, an original character who, unlike many of the others in the series, is not based on a historical figure.
The next cast announcement will follow on December 15. You can see Shun Horie alongside the character art for Taro Tanaka below.
The Blue Wolves of Mibu is being directed by Kumiko Habara (I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss), with Kenta Ihara (Handyman Saitou in another world) on series composition and Yuko Oba and Miyako Nishida handling character designs for the MAHO FILM production.
It’s 1863, the twilight of the shogunate, and Japan is on the cusp of monumental change. The streets of the nation’s capital are soaked in blood as political upheaval and rising tensions between masterless, wandering ronin and government samurai set the stage for one of the most turbulent times in Japan’s history. Young orphan Nio is no stranger to the harsh realities of the world, and yet he can’t help but cling to his burning passion for justice and desire to change the world for the better. One day, he crosses paths with two men who will become central figures of the coming revolution: Hijikata Toshizo and Okita Souji, two of the founding members of a group of hated ronin known as the Miburo–who would later become known as the Shinsengumi. Inspired by the efforts of the so-called “Blues Wolves of Mibu,” Nio decides to join the ranks to help carve a path to the world he wishes to see. But with new betrayals and reversals every day, will Nio be able to stay true to his conscience?
