The Tale of the Outcasts (ノケモノたちの夜, Nokemono-tachi no Yoru) manga will be adapted into an anime series, according to a Tweet the mangaka (Makoto Hoshino) posted earlier.

The Tweet has since been corroborated by TV Anime, which has also launched a corresponding official website and Twitter account for the anime series, so there’s no doubt about the news.

The first teaser visual has been revealed and that’s pretty much all we know about the upcoming anime series so far.

Well, almost all. Namely, Hoshino has shared her impressions, saying that she’s thankful for the “passions of many people” who are working on the project. Hinting that she’s working on the script, the mangaka says she couldn’t get out of her head the book the directors presented her with, which was “covered with sticky notes.”

Hoshino invites The Tale of the Outcasts fans to “keep an eye on the journey” of the anime adaptation as it unfolds as it is being brought forth with the “passion of many creators.”

The Tale of the Outcasts manga

The Tale of the Outcasts is a manga series written and illustrated by Makoto Hoshino. It was serialized in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shōnen Sunday from August 2019 to April 2021. The chapters have been collected in eight tankōbon volumes. Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the series for English-speaking audiences.

The plot follows Wisteria, an orphan girl from the British Empire who was born with the ‘sight.’ Namely, Wisteria has the ability to see demons, a gift that she offers to the great demon Marbas hoping to escape her unfair treatment. Marbas accepts and Wisteria thereupon forges a bond with him.

This alternate British Empire is populated by humans and humanoid beasts, so the manga is labeled ‘historical fantasy’ (and also ‘supernatural’ on additional criteria).

The plot seemingly gives off the Ancient Magus’ Bride vibes, but The Tale of the Outcasts follows an entirely different storyline, so no worries.

Still, some similarities are apparent. E.g., Marbas is a lonely immortal creature hunted by people due to his furry appearance. In fact, he’s pretty similar to Disney’s version of the beast from Beauty and the Beast.

Wisteria, on the other hand, used to be treated like a slave, so she welcomes the chance to change her outcomes and help ease Marbas’ loneliness, the state of mind she can relate to all too well.

The two set out to find their place in the world and start a peaceful life together, forging a deep bond along the way.

The Tale of the Outcasts is a curious read so hopefully the anime adaptation will be no less stunning. Stay tuned for the future anime series announcements!
