The light novels by Shinji Cobkubo and illustrated by K Akagishi Sabikui Bisco have been made into a new anime. If the trailer is anything to go by, Rust-Eater Bisco is a post-apocalyptic action explosion.
The series will air in Japan in early January, complete with helicopter attack ships and bunny hitmen.
The novels are published by ASCII Media Works, part of the KODOWAKA group, and Yen Press works on English language translations.
It’s Yen Press who describe Bisco as;
In the far future, a disaster known as the “Rusty Wind” has transformed the majority of Japan into a barren desert and left civilization in tatters. After his teacher falls prey to the rust, the roguish Bisco Akahoshi embarks on journey through the sandy wastes to obtain a mushroom known only as the Rust Eater, rumored to cure the ailment. Together with the dashing young doctor Milo, the pair will have to contend with the unforgiving environment and their fellow wanderers in order to make it back alive.
