Sentai Filmworks confirmed their acquisition of Intrigue in the Bakumatsu ~ Irohanihoheto. This 26-episode Sunrise (Code Geass) samurai series from Ryosuke Takahashi (Gasaraki, The Cockpit, Armored Trooper VOTOMS) will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release to follow.
The series features character designs by Yusuke Kozaki and music by Hideyuki Fukasawa (Nanaka 6/17, You’re Under Arrest: Full Throttle).
In the final years of the Bakumatsu, wandering mercenary Yojiro Akizuki travels the length and breadth of Japan. And while he employs his sword in the usual fashion, he also uses it to help him locate supernatural items which he pursues with single-minded determination, often with bloody results. In the course of his quest, he crosses paths with a traveling theater group whose members have their own dark agenda. Is it a chance meeting or the result of some, as yet, undiscovered conspiracy? Swords will swing and sorcery make itself felt in Intrigue in the Bakumatsu ~ Irohanihoheto Collection 1!
