The stage play will run from October 28 to November 7 at the Meijiza theater. Jun Yoriko is directing the play.
The anime is set in an alternate history Japan in 1931, with the Tokugawa shogunate never abolished and the Meiji emperor never restored to power. The anime will follow the activities of “Nue,” an organization of shogunate executioners who enforce government rule.
Susumu Kudo (K, Coppelion) is directing the anime at Bakken Record (Pandora to Akubi), and Rika Nezu (Saint Young Men 2013 film, live-action Kimi ni Todoke) is supervising the series scripts and writing them with Kunihiko Okada. Kano Komiyama is designing the characters, and Jun Yamaguchi is credited for production design.
