The third issue of Big Gangan announced a television anime adaptation of Etorouji Shiono's Übel Blatt (Ubel Blatt) manga on Saturday. Production company Pony Canyon simultaneously opened an official website, revealing a teaser visual (pictured).

Shiono originally published the manga in three chapters in Gangan YG (now Young Gangan) in January 2004, later published as Übel Blatt 0 (Ubel Blatt 0). The dark fantasy manga continued in the magazine in December 2004 and ran until November 2009. Following a two-year hiatus, the manga resumed in Big Gangan in December 2011 and ended in March 2019.

Square Enix published the 23rd and final volume in June 2019. The third issue also published the first chapter of the Übel Blatt II: Shiseru Ou no Kishidan sequel manga on Saturday.

Yen Press licensed the manga in English in February 2014 for an 2-in-1 omnibus release and shipped the 11th volume—containing volumes 22 and 23—in December 2019. The manga has also been published in Spanish, German, and Italian.

Synopsis
Rumors stir throughout the land: when the wielder of the black sword draws his dark blade, all who stand in its path are torn asunder...! Köinzell, the mysterious young boy who carries the black sword, undeniably wields it with exceptional skill, but can he truly be responsible for the bloody rumors? Pursued by the Traitorous Lances, four powerful warriors who were thought to have been defeated by the Seven Heroes, the strength of the young swordsman will be tested to its limit. At battle's end, only the shocking truth of Köinzell's quest will stand above the corpses of his enemies... An epic fantasy on the grandest of scales! (Source: Pony Canyon)

Haven’t read this, but I see it in interest stacks and recommendations a lot, so I’ll keep my eyes on this one. Hoping this will be a completed adaptation since it’s an already finished manga. They should honestly just adapt more old finished manga. There’s a lot of great hidden stuff out there.

This adaption is 10 years late. That said, glad it got one.

Though I've a feeling this won't get a good studio.

Wow. Are you serious? Me and my friends were so into Ubel blatt back in the day, can't wait.

Get ready for a proper revenge story done right.

I remember reading this a good 15 or so years ago. No idea what gave them the idea to suddenly adapt such an old manga that ended so many years ago, but it's certainly appreciated.

Though I honestly doubt this will be an uncensored adaptation. There's so much gore, sex and rape here. It's not like it'd be a precedent, they also recently released a censored Bastard animation. Still, it would be a shame to adapt such an old title while not giving it the respect it deserves. Hoping this won't go to any of the censorship friendly studios like LIDENFILMS.

For anyone wondering this is pretty much Berserk with Link as a protagonist.

I highly doubt this won't be censored.

It got an adaptation!? After all this years!? There are many much newer manga got adapted before this. I'm still a college student the last time I read this. I always assumed it was never going to be adapted bc of it. This was so random, what the hell!? It's like the studio was bored, rummaging their dusty-ancient bookcase, accidentally found a prehistoric manga from it, and though "Huh, this was never got adapted isn't it? Welp, I'm bored anyways, might as well...."

Edit:
Well, not a college student I guess, but still my point is: It's ancient as heck!

I just hope that they go with anime original ending/last arc. I hated what the manga turned into after the hiatus...

No way, fucking finally! Read the first volume a few years ago and think this could be great. At least it's nice to get a more traditional dark fantasy when seasonals are oversaturated with isekai and co.

Holy hell this comes from nowhere. I have most of the volumes for this series. It didn't work well in Japan so the author originally stopped the series, but then it worked really well in France; so when the author visited some French manga specialised bookstores (and I believe in Italy as well ?) he was so well received by the fans that it gave him the will to continue the story.

As far as I know it was stopped again later around vol 14 IIRC?, and then I stopped monitoring it, thinking it was done for good. I can't believe that it actually went its course fully up to 2019. I may have to fetch the few volumes I'm missing then, I remember really liking that one.

I get that people are excited, but why are so many people treating this like it's an ancient property? The 2000s aren't that old, and they're constantly being mined for nostalgia, along with the 90s.

@EcchiGodMamster If i remember well, there is sexual content similar to what Berzerk has... So calling that ecchi is a bit of a stretch. it's just for mature audience

it is ecchi through and through. also harem.

well sexual content is a standard in dark fantasy. There a wink to bersek by a rapist horse in the beginning of the manga.
