The anime Ishura, which is due out in January 2024, has dropped a trailer with more info. It lets us hear the opening theme song titled “Shura ni Otoshite” (translated as “Falling into the Carnage”) being performed by sajou no hana.

The trailer lets us know that the ending theme song is called “Hakka” (translated as “White Flower”) and performed by Konomi Suzuki, though we don’t get to hear that one just yet.

The trailer also unveils two more cast members: Shinichiro Miki will play Kuze the Passing Disaster, and Yui Horie will play Nastique the Quiet Singer.

Here are previously revealed cast members (spellings might change): Yuuki Kaji plays Soujiro the Willow-Sword, Reina Ueda plays Yuno the Distant Talon, Jun Fukuyama plays Alus the Star Runner, Akio Ohtsuka plays Harghent the Still, Romi Park plays Taren the Punished, Sōichiro Hoshi plays Dakai the Magpie, and Showtaro Morikubo plays Regnejee the Wings of Sunset.

The anime is being made at Passione, with Yuki Ogawa of FLCL Progressive working as the director and Takeo Takahashi of Hinako Note working as the chief director.

The anime is based on a light novel series by Keiso and Kureta that is published in America by Yen Press. Yen Press gave this description for it:

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 opponent 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; and an angelic assassin who deals instant death. Eager to attain the title of “One True Hero,” these champions each pursue challenges against formidable foes and spark conflicts themselves. The battle to determine the mightiest of the mighty begins.
