Historical anime that portray the glorious ages of swords, heroes, and myths are undefeatable when it comes to story and action. Keeping this in mind, Asahi Production and DMM have brought us a new saga called Giant Beasts of Ars.
DMM is one of the most sought-out services for streaming and has provided us with many anime to choose from. At the same time, Asahi Production has contributed its skills to some of the most successful anime of all time.
DMM and Asahi Production’s collab project, Giant Beasts of Ars, would become a much-anticipated anime. It is slated for a January 2023 release and is an entirely new and original story.
It is set in a period of magic, swords, Gods, and more which isn’t anything out of the ordinary unless you look at the plot.
The teaser shows that the story involves a war between humans and giants called Kyoju. Its protagonist is a man named Jiiro, who hunts Kyoju as a source of income.
In reality, the land had originally belonged to Kyoju, who created it but were upset when humans took over. As a result, Kyoju started eating humans, and a feud began between the two species.
Jiiro encounters ‘Twenty and Second Kuumi’, a mysterious girl who someone is chasing. Jiiro, along with Kuumi and his friends, embarks on a journey to unravel the secrets of this world.
The art director Isamu Kamikokuryō has drawn a striking visual for the upcoming anime. It features that are yet to be introduced.
