Shin Ikki Tousen is the fifth installment of the Ikki Tousen franchise. Originally being titled Ikki Tousen: Battle Vixens in 2003, Takashi Watanabe directed it (it had 13 episodes). Koichi Ohata directed the second one, titled Ikki Tousen: Dragon Destiny, in 2007 with a total of twelve episodes. The fourth installment, Ikki Tousen: Xtreme Xecutor, aired in 2010 and was directed by the same person. The third installment, Ikki Tousen: Great Guardians, premiered in 2008 (it also had 12 episodes). The series has been animated by Studio Arms.
Shin Ikki Tousen Episode 1 Release Date
Shin Ikki Tousen Episode 1 will release on May 17, 2022, at 8:30 PM. In total, the series is set to have only three episodes and will end on May 31, 2022. The series’ visuals are the main draws since it is based on the Ikki Tousen series. There are now some action scenes in the series, famous for schoolgirls. The video also features a preview of Konomi Suzuki’s “Proud Stars” theme song.
Storyboards and animation are handled by Studio Arms, but that studio reportedly declared bankruptcy in 2020. Shin Ikki Tousen is directed by Rion Kujou, who was responsible for Naruto TV anime (Fall 2002). The reason for only producing three episodes of the upcoming martial arts series could be due to this.
Rion Kujo (Samurai Harem) directs Shin Ikki Tousen anime with Taiji Kawanishi (Queen’s Blade) as an assistant director. Ikki Tousen: Western Wolves script and series composition will be written by Masaya Honda, Rin-Sin will be returning from the series, and Tsutomu Miyazawa will design the characters.
Miyazawa is also the anime’s chief animation director, in addition to art director Seo Gu Lee, photography director Shigeteru Asakawa, and composer Yasuharu Takanashi, all of whom have contributed to previous Ikki Tousen anime.
Shin Ikki Tousen Main Cast
Shin Ikki Tousen anime cast includes Atsumi Tanezaki as Asaemon Yamada, Ayaka Ohashi as Chūbō Sonken, Yuko Kaida as Shimei Ryomou, Yuu Asakawa as Shiryū Chō’un, Masumi Asano as Hakufu Sonsaku, Hitomi Nabatame as Unchō Kan’u, Chiaki Takahashi as Himiko, and Mai Kadowaki as Koumei Shokatsuryou.
According to Shin Ikki Tousen’s official website, “As the new chapter continues, it has been decided to animate the serialized work Shin Ikki Tousen. The “death battle” that Arms deals with, vastly exceeding the fierce battles the beautiful fighters have fought so far, begins here.”
What Is Shin Ikki Tousen About?
Shin Ikki Tousen and the entire “Ikki Tousen” franchise fall under the ecchi genre of anime. It features sexually charged and scandalous situations without ever veering into the pornographic territory. In the manga, there are plenty of moments like these, and we expect the anime to follow suit.
There will be a turf war, and our heroine, our protagonist, will have to keep the other factions at bay if the peace is to be maintained. This general plotline has always been present in previous installments. This show probably won’t be suitable for watching with your significant other since fight scenes and glimpses of young women in skimpy outfits are likely to appear in the spinoff. Stay tuned with Otakukart for further updates.
