Message from Author Shinobu Takayama:
Accordingly, Shinobu Takayama, the visionary creator of “Haigakura,” shared his profound thoughts on this remarkable milestone. He expressed:
“It has been 15 years this year since I started drawing the manga in obscurity in a bimonthly magazine. I am amazed at how much time has passed, but I can’t believe that in the 15th year, an anime adaptation has been decided…! Even now, I can’t get over the surprise. To all of you who gave me so much support and effort to make this project a reality, thank you so much. I hope you will continue to support both Haigakura, the manga, and the anime.”
“The heart of “Haigakura” rests within the expansive Senkai universe, where a delicate balance between immortals and humans exists. However, this equilibrium is under dire threat of crumbling. In the face of impending disaster, our protagonist Ichiyou, and his steadfast companion Tenkou embark on a daring odyssey. Ichiyou, a poet-warrior, employs the ingenious Kessai technique to quell the malevolent forces brought about by the four wicked gods who have plunged Senkai into chaos.”
In 2008, Shinobu Takayama embarked on the journey of serializing “Haigakura” within the pages of Ichijinsha’s Zero-Sum Ward publication. Even after the magazine’s print era came to a close in 2015, the manga’s narrative continued to flourish on the digital frontier of Zero-Sum Online. To date, Ichijinsha has released an impressive 16 volumes of the manga, and its influence extends to over 1.3 million copies in circulation, including digital formats.
