Fantasy Manga Übel Blatt Grabs TV Anime Series

Fantasy Manga Übel Blatt Grabs TV Anime SeriesÜbel Blatt, a dark fantasy manga by Etorōji Shiono, is getting the TV anime treatment. That’s the word from Pony Canyon, which also revealed the first piece of key art for the series.

The manga debuted back in 2004 and ended in 2019 after 24 collected volumes. A sequel manga by Shiono just kicked off.

Here’s how Yen Press describes the story:

Rumors stir throughout the land: when the wielder of the black sword draws his dark blade, all who stand in its path are torn asunder…! Köinzell, the mysterious young boy who carries the black sword, undeniably wields it with exceptional skill, but can he truly be responsible for the bloody rumors? Pursued by the Traitorous Lances, four powerful warriors who were thought to have been defeated by the Seven Heroes, the strength of the young swordsman will be tested to its limit. At battle’s end, only the shocking truth of Köinzell’s quest will stand above the corpses of his enemies… An epic fantasy on the grandest of scales!
