Hold on to your giant riding crabs, because a new trailer, a new key visual, and the Japanese release window have all been revealed for Rust-Eater Bisco (known in Japan as Sabikui Bisco), an upcoming TV anime based on the post-apocalyptic adventure light novel series written by Shinji Cobkubo and illustrated by K Akagishi and mocha about a wild young man on a quest to save the world from a rust-inducing ailment.
The original Rust-Eater Bisco light novels are published in Japan by ASCII Media Works (a division of KADOKAWA) under their Dengeki Bunko imprint, and an English language version is also in-development from Yen Press, who describe the story of the series as follows:
In the far future, a disaster known as the “Rusty Wind” has transformed the majority of Japan into a barren desert and left civilization in tatters. After his teacher falls prey to the rust, the roguish Bisco Akahoshi embarks on journey through the sandy wastes to obtain a mushroom known only as the Rust Eater, rumored to cure the ailment. Together with the dashing young doctor Milo, the pair will have to contend with the unforgiving environment and their fellow wanderers in order to make it back alive.
The Rust-Eater Bisco TV anime is directed by Atsushi Ikariya and features animation production by OZ. The series is scheduled to broadcast in Japan beginning in January of 2022.
