The Elusive Samurai Anime Reveals New Trailer and July 6 Premiere

The Elusive Samurai anime revealed the second trailer dedicated to the anime, which is slated to premiere on July 6. Studio CloverWorks is animating the adaptation of Yusei Matsui’s manga.

The anime was announced at the AnimeJapan 2023 event. The main staff is:

  • Director: Yuta Yamazaki (Wonder Egg Priority assistant director)
  • Series Composition: Yoriko Tomita (My Dress-Up Darling)
  • Script: Yoriko Tomita
  • Character Design: Yasushi Nishiya (Ni no Kuni)

Earlier this year, The Elusive Samurai anime revealed a character trailer for Hojo Tokiyuki, who is voiced by Asaki Yuikawa. In addition to Yuikawa, the cast also includes:

  • Yuichi Nakamura as Yorishige Suwa
  • Hinaki Yano as Shizuku
  • Mari Hino as Kojiro
  • Sayumi Suzushiro as Ayako
  • Aoi Yuki as Genba Kazama
  • Kikunosuke Toya as Fubuki

Yusei Matsui, who is best known for The Assassination Classroom manga, launched The Elusive Samurai in Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump in 2021. The manga currently has ten volumes out. Viz Media is publishing it in English and describes the plot as:

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!
