Assassination Classroom manga creator Yusei Matsui is getting another of his series adapted in the upcoming The Elusive Samurai, and a new character teaser is here ahead of the anime’s debut sometime in 2024. Following up on previous teases like November’s, which focused on Ayako, this one is all about Kojiro.

Meet the character—voiced in the anime by Mari Hino (Thoma in The Promised Neverland)—in the video and visual below.

Here’s how VIZ Media describes the original manga on which the anime is based:

After the massacre of his family by the traitor Ashikaga Takauji, Tokiyuki flees with the help of a handful of loyal retainers who have also survived the purge. One of them is Suwa Yorishige, an ally of the Hojo clan and lord of Suwa Province. The slightly odd Yorishige also claims to be clairvoyant and foretells that Tokiyuki will one day become the ruler of Japan. But for the moment, escaping from enemy territory is the priority!
