“Joran the Princess of Snow and Blood” is an anime series co-production with Hulu in Japan, Bakken Record, Bushiroad Move, Bushiroad Music and Dentsu. The series will premiere April 6 in Japan.
Nippon TV describes the series as follows:
The year is 1931. Prince Tokugawa Yoshinobu is 94 years old and holds absolute control over Japan. Remnants of the Meiji era’s culture can still be seen, but as scientific technology and Japanese esoteric cosmology Onmyodo also develop, a sense of modernity exudes. Yet lurking in the shadows is Kuchinawa, a dissident group planning the assassination of the prince, and effectively the fall of the regime. Tasked to extinguish these dissidents is Nue, the government’s secret executioner group. Sawa Yukimura, who works for this organization, suffered from an early age at the hands of Janome, the Kuchinawa boss. Her entire family was murdered, and she dedicates her life to avenging their death.
