An anime adaptation of The Tale of the Outcasts (Nokemono-tachi no Yoru) manga series is being produced. A teaser image for the fantasy series set during the British Empire has been made public as part of the announcement.
The teaser is released on the series’ official website and Twitter feed, but no other information has been provided beyond the Hoshino-illustrated artwork that celebrates the announcement.
Shogakukan has serialised The Tale of the Outcasts in its Weekly Shonen Sunday manga magazine. Seven Seas Entertainment also publishes an English version of the manga.
Synopsis of Tale of the Outcasts reads: 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.
