Hiroyuki Kanbe (Oreimo)-directed action fantasy is slated for January 2020
The official website for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Suu Minazuki (Heaven's Lost Property)'s action fantasy manga Plunderer has posted a main visual featuring its main characters and a seven-and-half minute clip including a 60-second third PV to introduce Jail Murdoch and Nana, along with interview footage with their voice cast, Yuichiro Umehara and Shizuka Itoh.
The TV anime adaptation is directed by Hiroyuki Kanbe (Oreimo, Gonna be the Twin-Tail!!), alongside series composition writer Masashi Suzuki (Seven Mortal Sins, Lord of Vermilion: The Crimson King) and three character designers: Yuka Takashina (Dance With Devils), Yuuki Fukuchi (Brave Witches key animator), Hiroki Fukuda (PERSONA5 the Animation episode animation director). GEEKTOYS (RErideD: Derrida, who leaps through time) works on anime production.
It is set to premiere in Japan in January 2020. Prior to the TV premiere, an advance screening event for its first three episodes is planned to be held at EJ Anime Theater Shinjuku in Tokyo on December 8, 2019.
The manga has been serialized in KADOKAWA's Monthly Shonen Ace since December 2014, and so far 12 tankobon volumes are available in Japan. Its English edition has been published by Yen Press since March 2019. The publisher introduces its first volume's story as below:
In the world of Alcia' where rank is determined by "counts" a young girl named Hina scours the land for the fabled Ace-the legendary hero of the Waste War. With only the last words of her missing mother to guide her search' she wanders from town to town until she meets Licht' a clownish masked vagrant with a count of --999. Girl-crazy and unpredictable' he's the exact opposite of a hero...or at least' that's how he appears...
