After seeing the first promo back in July, it’s now finally time for a second full trailer for Reborn to Master the Blade: From Hero-King to Extraordinary Squire. The TV anime adaptation is officially set to premiere in Japan on January 9, and the new trailer shows off more of the show while previewing the “DAY1” opening theme song by AUO feat. Win Morisaki.
Yui Nishio is on the ending theme, “Self-hug Big Love.” Check out the trailer below.
There are also four new cast members:
Atsushi Tamaru voices Rafael Bilford:
Yuichi Nakamura voices Leon Olfa:
Katsuyuki Konishi voices Black Mask:
Mugihito voices King Inglis:
Naoyuki Kuzuya (Bikini Warriors) is directing the adaptation of Hayaken and Nagu’s novels, with Mitsutaka Hirota (EDENS ZERO) on series composition and Reiichiro Ofuji (Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest) on character designs for the Studio Comet production.
J-Novel Club publishes the novels in English and describes them like so:
From his deathbed, Hero-King Inglis, the divine knight and master of all he surveys, gazes down on the empire he built with his mighty hand. Having devoted his life to statecraft and his subjects’ well-being, his one unfulfilled wish is to live again, for himself this time: a warrior’s life he’d devoted himself to before his rise to power. His patron goddess, Alistia, hears his plea and smiles upon him, flinging his soul into the far future. Goddesses work in mysterious ways—not only is Inglis now the daughter of a minor noble family, but at her first coming-of-age ceremony at 6, she’s found ineligible to begin her knighthood! However, for a lady of Inglis’s ambition, this is less a setback and more the challenge she was (re)born to overcome. “It’s not the blood that runs through your veins that makes a knight; it’s the blood you shed on the battlefield!” The curtain rises on the legend of an extraordinary lady squire reborn to master the blade!
