Ars no Kyoju (Giant Beasts of Ars), a new original action-fantasy anime from Asahi Production and DMM Pictures, is scheduled to premiere sometime in January 2023. A teaser and an image have been released.
Giant Beasts of Ars takes place in a world where destructive and gigantic creatures abound, and humans hunt these beasts to make use of their remains. Jiro is one such hunter, although a past incident has led him to become an alcoholic and adopt an apathetic attitude.
However, Jiro has to put aside his sorrows to save Kumi, a girl who escaped from a research center and is being hunted. You can watch the Japanese animation trailer below:
Akira Oguro (Namuamida Butsu! Rendai Utena, Final Fantasy Legends: Hikari to Yami no Senshi and Yuusha character designer Shirei Dagwon) is directing with Norimitsu Kaihou (composer of the co-series Akudama Drive) as the series’ composer and screenwriter.
Giant Beasts of Ars also features illustrator Ashito Ooyari as the original character designer, with Hiroshi Shimizu (Megalo Box) and Masato Katou (co-character designer of Peach Boy Riverside) as character designers. Shuji Katayama and Akinari Suzuki compose the music.
Meanwhile, the cast includes Hina Youmiya as Kumi, Toshiyuki Morikawa as Jiro, Yuu Serizawa as Mia, Hiromu Mineta as Meran, and Youko Hikasa as Romana.
As we await the release of Ars no Kyoju and more anime series in the fall season, American Post News reminds you that the original anime Shinobi no Ittoki will premiere in October 2022.
