Now that it's available for streaming (on Netflix), join the discussion at /forumtopic-1016121/sword-gai-the-animation-discussion




The September issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Hero's Magazine revealed on Tuesday that the planned television anime adaptation of Toshiki Inoue, Osamu Kine, and Keita Amamiya's Sword Gai manga will now premiere on Netflix worldwide simultaneously in spring 2018. In addition, it revealed Inoue will be in charge of series composition and will pen the scripts for the anime.


Plot Summary
The story revolves around Gai, who was born beside a woman who met her death in a forest. He was adopted by the swordsmith Amon. A few years later, Gai becomes Amon's apprentice, and during the forging of a sword, he loses his right arm. To help him, Amon crushes the demon sword Shiryū (lit. Death Dragon) to form it into Gai's replacement right arm. Gai then is able to fuse with the weapon on his arm, and fights against his enemies.

Perhaps this adaptation will be more impressive once released.

The part that caught my attention was "on Netflix worldwide simultaneously" — no waiting until the season is done? If so, I hope more shows will be like that.
