The anime will star:
Shiozaki’s original Ikki Tousen manga centers around Hakufu Sonsaku, a high school student who possesses a magatama that allows her to channel the spirit of the warrior Sun Ce from China’s Three Kingdoms era. She fights students from other high schools, each bearing their own magatama and embodying a different hero from the era. Shiozaki launched Shin Ikki Tousen in Shonengahosha‘s Young King Ours magazine in November 2015.
The main manga has inspired four previous television anime and five previous OVAs. Ikki Tousen: Western Wolves is the newest anime entry in the franchise, and it shipped on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in February 2019. The anime’s three episodes also aired on AT-X from January to March 2019.
