The key visual and the first PV of the TV anime “Raven of the Inner Palace” (to be broadcast in October 2022) have arrived. It was also announced that Shimazaki Nobunaga and Okamoto Nobuhiko have been cast.

“Raven of the Inner Palace” is a Chinese fantasy tale based on the novel by Shirakawa Koko, which has sold more than one million copies in total. The story is about Jusetsu, a special consort called the “Raven Consort” who uses mysterious arts and does not serve the emperor, and is visited by the emperor in the spotlight, Koshun, for a request, which leads her to uncover a “secret” that will overturn history.

In the first part of the PV released this time, you can get a taste of the world of the work from the mysterious scene in which Jusetsu uses her art. The visuals of Onkei (played by Shimazaki Nobunaga) and Tankai (played by Okamoto Nobuhiko) have also been released, and we have high hopes for seeing how their encounter will affect Jusetsu (played by Saku Mizuno).

In addition, part of the first episode will be broadcast at the world’s fastest time during “Aniplex Online Fest 2022” scheduled to be held on September 24. The official website is also being updated with staff information, character webpages, and other information.

This is the first part of the PV, which gives an early glimpse of the exotic atmosphere of “The Raven of the Later Palace,” a Chinese fantasy tale. Check it out to find clues to unravel the secret that Jusetsu is holding.

The TV anime “Raven of the Inner Palace” will be broadcast on TOKYO MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, BS11, and Kansai Telecasting Corporation from October 2022. Let’s wait to hear more news in the future.

Full text of the comment is as follows
Shimazaki Nobunaga
I am Shimazaki Nobunaga, voicing over Onkei.
Onkei, coupled with his beautiful eyes, gives the impression of being cold and hard, but in fact he is very …….
I hope you will watch how his humanity will be revealed and how he will change as he meets and protects Jusetsu-sama.

Okamoto Nobuhiko
I am Okamoto Nobuhiko and will be playing as Tankai.
The work has such a realistic atmosphere as if it were an actual history, and fantasy like witchcraft and sorcery coexist in it. Among them, the character of Tankai will be a person who is somewhat aloof, but has kindness and strength at the core.
Please look forward to the world of indulgence.
