Reincarnated as a Sword, the anime based on the popular light novel and manga series of the same name, is headed to screens this October. That’s the word from the first full promo video for the series, revealed this weekend.
The show is directed by Shinji Ishihara, who’s worked on stuff like Fairy Tail and Log Horizon, and is animated at C2C. Our own Kara Dennison recently slashed into why the series might just be a blast.
Here’s how Seven Seas describes the manga adaptation:
Reincarnated as a sentient weapon with memories of his past life, but not his name, a magical sword saves a young beastgirl from a life of slavery. Fran, the cat-eared girl, becomes his wielder, and wants only to grow stronger, while the sword wants to know why he is here. Together, the strange duo’s journey has only just begun! This manga adaptation of the hit light novel series features charming artwork by manga artist Tomowo Maruyama, and is sure to be enjoyed by existing fans of the franchise as well as all-new readers who are ready for a sharp fantasy tale.
Here’s looking forward to some Reincarnated as a Sword action this October.
