Dead Mount Death Play Manga Gets Anime Adaptation

Dead Mount Death Play Manga Gets Anime AdaptationDead Mount Death Play, a manga by Ryohgo Narita and Shinta Fujimoto, is getting the anime treatment.

The fantasy series about necromancers, reincarnations and battles between good and evil will debut in 2023.

It’ll be animated at GEEKTOYS, directed by Manabu Ono (Sword Art Online: Alicization) and star:

Yuki Sakakihara as Polka Shinoyama
Inori Minase as Misaki Sakimiya
Yūma Uchida as Takumi Kuruya

Here’s how Yen Press describes the original manga, which debuted back in 2017:

It’s a showdown for the ages as the legendary hero takes on the corpse god necromancer, but when the dust settles, something isn’t quite right… In the final moments of their epic confrontation, the corpse god’s final gambit shot was wholly unexpected — reincarnation magic! Across space and time, a boy named Polka Shinoyama awakens feeling…not quite himself…… Who could’ve expected that the climactic battle between good and evil would turn out like this??
