TV anime "Orient" teaser PV [broadcast from January 2022]
Set during the Warring States period of Japan, one day, demon gods suddenly appeared and killed every one of the warlords who were caught in a power struggle for hegemony—signaling the end of the world for humanity. Now, 150 years later, humanity is oppressed under the rule of the demon gods. However, there are those who continue to fight for freedom, known as Bushi.
When Kojiro and Musashi were children, they admired these warriors that they heard about from Kojiro’s father and swore an oath that one day they would form the ultimate Band of Bushi. However, they live in a town where the people worship the demons as gods and believe that Bushi are evil. Musashi is unable to speak out about his dream of becoming a Bushi and Kojiro is shunned by others for being the son of one.
Musashi is conflicted by his way of life, until one day when he sees a demon tearing a human apart limb from limb with no remorse. In the face of this coldhearted reality, Musashi and Kojiro take on the overwhelmingly powerful demons to make their dream come true!
