It was previously announced that the ORIENT TV anime was planning to premiere in January, and now that timing has been locked into a specific date. The adaptation of Magi author Shinobu Ohtaka’s manga of the same name will officially make its way to TV in Japan on January 5, 2022.

A new trailer was released to mark the occasion, while also taking the opportunity to reveal the anime’s opening and ending theme artists. Da-iCE is on the opening theme, “Break Out”—which you’ll be able to hear in the video below—and Hideo Kosameda voice actor Wataru Hatano is on the ending theme, “Nani Iro.”

Crunchyroll will simulcast the series in January, as well. Here’s the official synopsis:

Based on the manga by Shinobu Ohtaka being published in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shonen Magazine. This is a story about Musashi, a 15-year-old boy who lives in Japan during the Sengoku period. Japan is ruled by demons, and Musashi tries to confront the demons with a certain special power!
