The Japanese manga series The Kingdoms of Ruin has announced that it will receive a television anime adaptation this year.
The upcoming anime adaptation will be produced by Yokohama Animation Lab, the production company that has previously worked on Jujutsu Kaisen, an anime adaptation for the well-known video game Legend of Mana, and the television version of Monster Strike. The two major characters, voice actors Kaito Ishikawa as Adonis and Azumi Waki as Doroka, have already been cast in the series, which will be directed by Keitaro Motonaga. In the world of The Kingdoms of Ruin, witches are no longer useful, and a new level of technology has led people to fiercely reject the spellcasters.
The makers have not disclosed the release date of the series yet but they have revealed some artwork from the series. The original printing of The Kingdoms of Ruin’s first volumes was done by Seven Seas Entertainment and their description of the story reads: Humanity long lived in harmony with witches, but an advanced scientific revolution has made the powers of a witch unnecessary. Succumbing to resentment and fear, the greatest nation in the world begins a brutal witch hunt and eliminates all witches from the land. After being forced to watch his beloved teacher die, Adonis, a witch’s apprentice, swears revenge on the empire that took everything away from him. It’s a bloody battle between science and magic in this thrilling new fantasy manga!
