Magi’s new shounen action manga is out. Musashi is a teenager living under the rule of demons. As a child, he and his best friend made a promise to each other: to become the greatest warriors in the world and defeat the demons. But life interferes, and five years later, he finds himself on the verge of becoming a miner. However, can Musashi really be satisfied with a “normal” life?
At the age of 10, close friends Musashi and Kojiro sat in excited silence as Kojiro’s father told stories of evil demons that hunted the innocent and the warriors who defeated them. Practicing swordsmanship, the two vow to become the strongest in the world, but as they grow up, Kojiro becomes skeptical, and Musashi realizes that he cannot overthrow 150 years of demon rule on his own. He’s been called a prodigy with a pickaxe, and he’s almost ready to settle into working life. However, he can’t shake the feeling that he still has a responsibility to act… and soon the injustices in his world will force him to act…
The first seasons of the manga adaptation premiered in Japan in January 2022. The second season of the anime premiered on TV Tokyo in July 2022 and includes “Awajishima Gekitō-hen” (The Fierce Battle at Awaji Island Arc) of the original manga.
