The Elusive Samurai hasn’t released much information since the anime was announced in March. However, at Aniplex Online Festival 2023, fans saw the first teaser trailer for the main character, Tokiyuki Hojo. Yusei Matsui’s The Elusive Samurai has been published in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump since January 2021 and has been collected into 12 volumes to date. The series was also licensed in North America by VIZ Media. This marks Matsui’s third manga to receive an anime adaptation, after the popular Assassination Classroom and Neuro: Supernatural Detective.

VIZ Media describes the series:
After the massacre of his family by the traitor Ashikaga Takauji, Tokiyuki flees with the help of a handful of loyal retainers who have also survived the purge. One of them is Suwa Yorishige, an ally of the Hojo clan and lord of Suwa Province. The slightly odd Yorishige also claims to be clairvoyant and foretells that Tokiyuki will one day become the ruler of Japan. But for the moment, escaping from enemy territory is the priority!
