Classic ’90s Series “Hoshin Engi” is Getting an Anime Remake

A preview of Shueisha’s Young Jump double-issue has revealed that the classic Hoshin Engi manga is getting an anime remake with a new cast!

Hoshin Engi

Ryu Fujisaki’s manga was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1996 to 2000. Studio Deen produced a 26-episode anime adaptation in 1999.

Hoshin Engi is a fantasy series that is loosely based on the ancient Chinese novel Fengshen Yanyi. The beautiful Dakki bewitches Emporer Chu-o and unleashes evil spirits that roam the land. Taikōbō is chosen by the Confederation of Immortal Masters to partake in the Hoshin Project. With the help of a spirit named Supushan, Taikōbō is tasked with sealing away evil spirits and to defeat Dakki.

  • Tomoaki Maeno (Juichi Fukutomi in Yowamushi Pedal) will voice Bunchū.
  • Takahiro Sakurai (Meme Oshino in Bakemonogatari) will voice Sūpūshan.

More details will be revealed at a later date.

I really like to look at the darker side of things, like a shadow following you at night...or maybe I'm just trying too hard? Anyways, Persona is my life!
