Avex Pictures opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Kei Urana's Gachiakuta manga on Thursday, revealing the main staff, a teaser promo, and teaser visual (pictured). The anime series is being produced by animation studio Bones for a 2025 airing.

Director: Fumihiko Suganuma (Sirius episode director, Shirobako episode director)
Series Composition: Hiroshi Seko (Jujutsu Kaisen, Wind Breaker)
Character Design, Chief Animation Director: Satoshi Ishino (A.I.C.O. Incarnation, Godzilla S.P)
Studio: Bones

The Anime Expo 2024 event at Los Angeles will host a panel highlighting behind the scenes for the anime on July 4, featuring Bones, a producer from Avex, and an editor from Kodansha.

Urana began serializing the action fantasy manga in Weekly Shounen Magazine in February 2022, featuring graffiti designs by Hideyoshi Andou. Kodansha published the tenth volume on March 15, with the 11th volume scheduled to be released on June 17.

Kodansha USA licensed the manga in English in March 2023. The second volume went on sale on April 30, and the third volume will ship on July 23.

Gachiakuta was nominated for the 47th and 48th Kodansha Manga Awards in the Shounen category. The manga also ranked 13th at the 2022 Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards and was the most popular manga among English voters.

Living in the slums of a wealthy town, Rudo and his foster father Legto try to coexist with the rest of the town's residents, but Rudo despises the wastefulness of the upper class. Ignoring the warnings from those around him, Rudo regularly rummages through the town's garbage in search of anything useful or valuable to save from the "Abyss"—a massive hole where anything considered trash is dumped, including people. Rudo's biological father was one such person, having been thrown into the Abyss after he was accused of murder.

One day, after running into a mysterious figure on the way home, Rudo returns to find Legto's dying body on the floor. He is immediately found at the scene by the authorities and is charged with murder. No one believes his claims of innocence, and he is thrown into the Abyss. Instead of dying, however, he finds himself in a strange, foul-smelling place surrounded by monsters made out of trash.

When Rudo is attacked by said monsters, he is saved by a man named Enjin, who reveals himself to be a "janitor"—someone who uses special weapons called "jinkis" to combat these creatures. In order to get his revenge on the one who killed Legto, Rudo reluctantly becomes a janitor to fight his way back up and out of the Abyss. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Oh, I like the grim visuals, going to keep an eye on this for sure.

"Overthrow the status quo and change the world." - That's one heck of a cool line.

I've heard good things about this series so it's great that it's getting an anime. Bones is going to cook. Will definitely peep the manga before the anime drops.

People on MAL refuse to actually enjoy watching anime.

Your taste in anime isn't a personality trait.

The manga is dope and having Bones work on this is basically a perfect fit, so pretty hyped for this overall.

This is great news, been reading the manga since it had only a few chapters and I knew from the very start it would get an anime. I really hope it gets the treatment it deserves.

This finally got adaption. Although I was expecting Trigger to make this, but bones is good too.

My doctor has always told me to smoke. He even explains himself: “Smoke, my friend. Otherwise someone else will smoke in your place.”

Bones making this was already out, but still now that this is officially confirmed guess anything about Noragami was straight up fake. Oh well, though looking forward to this one.

Finally a good studio is in charge of one of the best upcoming action battle shonen manga. Gachiakuta is gonna be very difficult to adapt properly, thankfully Bones are one of the only studios out there that can pull it off.

Is this a continuation of the dark fantasy battle shonens trend?

The manga art is really cool, and with Bones at the helm we shouldn't worry about the visual aspect. Can't wait to see the first trailer.

@RobertBobert There was a dark fantasy battle shounen trend? Also what do you mean by continuation? As in more new animes of the genre coming? I don't remember many dark fantasy animes coming out recently let alone them being dark fantasy battle shounens or even dark fantasy shounens. The only one that comes to mind is Jigokuraku.

@MegamiRem Since the explosion of JJK's and Kimetsu no Yaiba's popularity. The producers at MAPPA even glorify it, saying that it's the next big thing in the genre and that they're going to focus on it in the coming years . Have you noticed that when they canceled the Yuri on Ice movie, many took it as a rejection of hits that weren't dark fantasy battle shonens?

I went through a few chapters of the manga, it's a decent enough tale.

The animation has an interesting fusion of grim and stylish.
