A matched pair of preview videos have been released for Youjo Senki: Saga of Tanya the Evil, an upcoming TV anime adaptation based on the series of light novels written by Carlo Zen and illustrated by Shinobu Shinotsuki about a Japanese salaryman reincarnated as a superhumanly powerful girl soldier.
The “Yousei ver.” (“Fairy ver.”) trailer above presents the protagonist Tanya Degurechaff as she is perceived by her allies: as an angelic savior. The “Bakemono ver.” (“Monster ver.”) trailer below presents Tanya as she is perceived by her enemies: as a terrifying monster on the battlefield. Both versions featuring the opening theme “JINGO JUNGLE” by MYTH & ROID.
The original Youjo Senki light novels are published by Enterbrain, a subsidiary of Kadokawa. The Youjo Senki: Saga of Tanya the Evil TV anime is directed by Yutaka Uemura and features animation by Studio NuT. Youjo Senki: Saga of Tanya the Evil will broadcast on AT-X, Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, and BS11 beginning on January 06, 2017.
