 Distribution company REMOW announced on Tuesday that Yura Urushibara's Tougen Anki: Dark Demon of Paradise manga will get a television anime in 2025. The company revealed the trailer, key visual, and main cast for the anime.

The anime's cast includes:

Kazuki Ura as Shiki Ichinose, the protagonist who inherits the blood of an Oni. Shiki's life is turned upside down when he is suddenly attacked by a "Momotaro," leading him to discover his tru

Oni heritage. Following this revelation, he enrolls in Rasetsu Academy, a training school for Oni.

The bloodlines of "Oni" and "Momotaro" have been passed down among certain humans for generations. Long ago, the Oni, aware of their own ferocity, lived in seclusion. However, their peace was shattered by an invasion led by Momotaro. Over thousands of years, these two factions formed the "Momotaro Agency" and the "Oni Agency," respectively, and have been locked in conflict ever since.

The protagonist, Shiki Ichinose, suddenly learns of his Oni lineage following an unexpected attack by Momotaro. This revelation sets Shiki on a path to discover the destiny that lies within his blood — a meeting with the Oni dwelling within him. 

A new generation of dark heroics begins here in this tale of demons!
