Onihei Hankacho to get anime adaption

It is officially confirmed that after all these years we will finally get an anime adaptation of Shotaro Ikenami’s Onihei Hankacho novel series that is set to air in 2017.

Onihei Hankacho started in the December 1967 issue of the light novel magazine All Yomimono  with a hardcover version being published the following year by Bungei Shunjū and features Heizo Hasegawa, the head of the special police in the Edo period.

Previous adaptions have seen film and television jidaigeki (period drama) versions, the most popular being 1989’s adaption starring Nakamura Kichiemon II.

The TV anime, simply titled Onihei, will be directed by Shigeyuki Miya (Rupan sansei: Tenshi no sakuryaku takutikusu yume no kakera wa koroshi no kaori, Lupin III: Green vs. Red, Aoi Bungaku Series, Supernatural: The Animation, Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou).
