OP / ED theme song performers and Japanese TV schedule revealed for upcoming sci-fi light novel adaptation
An action-packed new preview video (below), the opening and ending theme song performers, and the Japanese TV schedule have all been revealed for Rust-Eater Bisco (known as Sabikui Bisco in Japan), an upcoming TV anime based on the series of post-apocalyptic science fiction action light novels written by Shinji Cobkubo and illustrated by K Akagishi and mocha about a wild-tempered young man on a quest to save the world from a rusty fate.
The opening theme song, entitled "Kaze no Oto sae Kikoenai" ("I Can't Even Hear the Sound of the Wind"), is performed by JUNNA. The ending theme, entitled "Houkou" ("Howl"), is performed in character by Bisco Akaboshi (CV: Ryota Suzuki) and Milo Nekoyanagi (CV: Natsuki Hanae).
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 will broadcast in Japan according to the following TV schedule:
- TOKYO MX: every Monday during the 24:30 time slot beginning on January 10, 2022.
- Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation: every Monday during the 25:59 time slot beginning on January 10, 2022.
- BS11: every Monday during the 24:30 time slot beginning on January 12, 2022.
Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming for the previous day, so for example the 24:30 time slot on Monday evening is actually on Tuesday morning at 12:30am JST.
