Sentai Filmworks Licenses Maoyu Anime

Sentai Filmworks made a quick announcement today regarding the Maoyu — Archenemy & Hero anime. The 12-episode series will be available soon through select digital outlets, with a home video release to follow later.

Based on the light novel series by Log Horizon‘s Mamare Touno, Maoyu streamed on Crunchyroll alongside its original airing in Japan. The ARMS-produced adaptation is directed by Spice and Wolf‘s Takeo Takahashi, with Naruhisa Arakawa (Kingdom, Spice and Wolf) on scripts.

Here’s the synopsis via Crunchyroll:

Fifteen years have passed since the war between humans and demons began. The human army that charged through the gate into the demon world managed to take one of the demon clan’s vital strongholds, but left an opening for the demon clan to occupy part of the humans’ territory. Frequent skirmishes between humans and demons in the intensely cold southern kingdoms have caused everyone much suffering and confusion.
