No additional details about the new TV anime adaptation (such as the cast, crew, and release date) have yet been revealed. The Utawarerumono series has previously been adapted into 2006 TV anime with direction by Tomoki Kobayashi and animation production by OLM as well as a 2015 sequel series, entitled Utawarerumono: The False Faces, with direction by Keitaro Motonaga and animation production by White Fox.

After the events of Mask of Deception, the Yamato Empire is now ruled with an iron fist by a ruthless usurper who seeks to subjugate all before him. It’s up to a couple of familiar faces to band together against the might of the Imperial army, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance as nations and generals must pick a side to fight with in this perilous civil war. Secrets will be revealed, friendships will be tested, and battles will be fought. Will peace and order be restored or will victory at any cost be the beginning of the end?
