Futabasha publisher today released a 65-second promotional video for the manga adaptation of Moto Nakanishi's light novel series Kijin Gentoushou. At the end of the video it is announced that an anime adaptation of the work is in development. However, it is not clear from the announcement whether it will be a TV series or any other format.



The novel was first published from December 2015 to October 2016 on the Japanese site "Shousetsuka ni Narou". The print edition has been published by Futabasha since June 2019. So far, seven volumes are available in Japan and the series has been printed in an edition of more than 230,000 copies. The eighth novel, entitled "Taishō-hen" (Taishō Arc), is slated for publication on October 21st.

Futabahsa describes the plot as follows:

In the Edo period there was a shrine girl named "Itsukihime" in the mountain village of Kadono. Jinta, a young man who acts as the shrine girl's guardian despite being a stranger, encounters a mysterious demon who speaks of the distant future in the forest he went to to defeat him. This is the first volume in a large Japanese fantasy series, which ranges from the Edo to the Heisei era and is about a demon man who travels through time and repeatedly asks the question of the point of wielding a sword.
