The visual features a bright red stroke behind Yasuke which reminds me of Ouroboros with the snake-like face almost touching its tail.

Ouroboros usually associates with the cycle of life, when one ends something new starts. Thus, Yasuke, who tried to put his “Black Samurai” days behind him, is once again filled with determination and the will to protect! 

The whole vibe of this poster is sending shivers down my spine, and I’m sure yours too!

The anime streamed on Netflix in April with a brilliant storyline! The animation studio MAPPA gave life to the project while LeSean Thomas has directed it.

Watch Yasuke on:

The anime merely consisted of six episodes, leaving fans hungry for more, which led to the creation of this manga! 

Some speculate that the following season could adhere to the same trend, with the anime being released first and then the adaptation; or it could merely continue as a manga. 

Emmy Award-winning music composer and producer, Flying Lotus, teased fans by saying that they have big plans for Yasuke. This is going to cheer you up!

I know that most of us can’t tame our excitement and so I’d suggest you watch the anime if you haven’t already while waiting for the Monthly Spirits issue!
