MAPPA has revealed a new trailer for their upcoming anime series, To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts. The series is set in the aftermath of the American Civil War, where the North only barely defeated the South after transforming their soldiers into the Incarnates using forbidden magic. Despite using this power for good, after the war Incarnates found themselves shunned and killed. This unfortunate fate befalls the father of Nancy Schaal Bancroft, who spends years tracking down the murderer of her father. Nancy fails in her attempt to kill the man, but learns not only that her father’s murderer was an Incarnate himself, but that he swore to take down any other Incarnate who lost their humanity. From there, she’s invited to learn the truth of the beings known as the Incarnates.
To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts is directed by Jun Shishido (Hajime no Ippo: Rising), with Shigeru Murakoshi (Zombieland Saga) handling series composition, and Daisuke Niinuma (Break Blade films) handling character designs.
To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts begins July 1st.
