Images from the official website of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine revealed on Wednesday that MAPPA and Aniplex's "Project Altair" anime will be a television anime adaptation of Kotono Katō's historical fantasy manga Shōkoku no Altair manga. The anime will air next year.


Plot Summary

The manga's story centers on Mahmut, a young member of Türkiye Stratocracy's council who holds the political and military title of Pasha. The council's combination of warmongers and pacifists divide it. The threat of war and danger from the belligerent Empire put Türkiye's safety at risk. As the country's youngest military leader, Mahmut is determined to keep the peace. But with so much at stake, a long history of enemies and alliances draws the young man far into a political world he hopes to keep in check. The Pasha's journey is not easy, and war may prevail despite his efforts.

I'm really excited to see this. MAPPA has produced some of the best and most underrated fantasy anime series in recent years imo, their work with fantasy is outstanding. I've never read the manga, but I'm sure the studio will be able to do an amazing job with it. It can also be a disaster of course, but it's MAPPA and I trust their name when it comes to fantasy.
