Key production staff and a new cast member have been revealed for the Ishura TV anime during this weekend’s Dengeki Bunko 30th: Summer Festival Online 2023 event. The series is officially set to premiere in Japan in January 2024, and you can catch the latest preview in an action-packed new trailer and visual below.

The new cast addition, showcased in the trailer, is Koichi Yamadera as Shalk the Sound Slicer:

Yuki Ogawa (Mieruko-chan) is directing the Ishura anime, with Kenta Ihara (Saga of Tanya the Evil) on series composition, Yoko Kikuchi and Yuka Takashina on character designs, Seiji Handa and Hiroya Iijima on monster designs and Passione on animation production. 

Yen Press publishes the original light novels in English and describes them like so:

In a world where the Demon King has died, a host of demigods capable of felling him have inherited the world. A master fencer who can figure out how to take out their opponents with a single glance; a lancer so swift they can break the sound barrier; a wyvern rogue who fights with three legendary weapons at once; an all-powerful wizard who can speak thoughts into being; an angelic assassin who deals instant death. Eager to attain the title of “True Hero,” these champions each pursue challenges against formidable foes and spark conflicts among themselves. The battle to determine the mightiest of the mighty begins.
