The Elusive Samurai anime adaptation was first announced in March 2023. The first teaser trailer for the main character, Tokiyuki Hojo, was released during the Aniplex Online Festival 2023. It is based on a manga of the same title by Yusei Matsu, which has been published in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump since January 2021 and has been collected into 12 volumes to date.

VIZ has licensed the manga in English for its North American release, describing 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!
