AYAKA is an original series by Studio Blanc, the anime studio behind titles such as The Reincarnation of the Strongest Exorcist in Another World, My Girlfriend Is Shobitch, and more.

Unlike most of their other anime, this upcoming series is an original work. Its story follows Yanagi Yukito, an orphan who is taken to his birthplace of Ayakajima.

There, he discovers that his father’s disciples must help protect Ayakajima, which is threatened to collapse.

The anime’s release schedule is a bit unusual as it will premiere on July 1 on TOKYO MX and BS11.

Meanwhile, the show will begin airing on Hokkaido Television Broadcasting on July 3, and on AT-X on July 4.

Currently, there’s no word yet on when and on which platform the series will be released outside Japan.
