Following a delay due to last week’s earthquake coverage, the ORIENT anime returns this week with a back-to-back airing of episodes 11 and 12. With the latter comes the arrival of a new voice cast member, as Kiyono Yasuno (Nejire Hado in My Hero Academia) joins the cast to bring the princess of the Saruwatari Bushi Band to life.


You can see Yasuno next to the design for her character, Michiru Saruwatari, below.



The ORIENT hour starts on March 23 at 24:00 (effectively, 12 AM on March 24) and runs until 25:00 (or 1 AM), with Crunchyroll streaming both episodes soon after.


Series synopsis:

During the Warring States era, the feuding generals were suddenly struck down one after another by the demonic Kishin. In the 150 years since, groups of individuals have continued to resist Kishin control. They are called Bushi bands. When they were young, Musashi and Kojiro would hear tales about the Bushi from Kojiro’s father, and the two of them dream to form the strongest Bushi band. One day, as Musashi struggles with his choices, he witnesses humans being torn apart by oni. Forced to face the truth, Musashi rises up against the powerful oni to make his dream with Kojiro come true!
