Makoto Hoshino created The Tale of Outcasts, a manga you can buy on Amazon about an orphan lost in the darkness and an immortal monster.
An anime from Ashi Productions is coming, and at Crunchyroll Expo 2022, the streaming platform confirmed they’d pick up the series. There’s an English subtitled trailer available already.
The anime will be out in January 2023.
Ayana Taketatsu (Classroom of the Elite, The Detective is Already Dead) will voice Wisteria, Katsuyuki Konishi (Orient, Shaman King) is Marbas, and Ryota Osaka will be Snow.
The director will be Yasutaka Yamamoto, and in an interview, Crunchyroll asked about the impact of reading the manga.
When I first looked at the cover and saw Wisteria and Marbas together, I assumed that it was a heart-warming story of them growing closer to each other… But I was pleasantly surprised by this passionate and moving shonen manga, filled with battles with strong enemies, encounters with friends, and bonds with partners.
Crunchyroll have a poetic synopsis for the new series, saying;
The demon by her side is her salvation. The girl by his side is his pastime. Their encounter in the late nineteenth-century British Empire begins the tale of a search for someplace to belong. To their fellow outcasts, this demon and girl whisper their tale in the dark of night.
Meanwhile, for the Amazon listing Seven Seas, the publisher, say;
This is the story of Wisteria, an orphaned girl lost in darkness, and Marbas, an immortal being who shares her loneliness. The unlikely companions met on a quiet, uneventful night, and they set off together in search of the light. What begins as a chance meeting on the edge of the late nineteenth-century British Empire soon became a full-fledged journey to find their place in the world.
