Sekiro Anime Is An Ambitious Project; Will Be “Drawn,” Says Leaker

The project has yet to be officially announced.

Story Highlights

  • A credible anime leaker has stated that the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice anime is an ambitious project.
  • The inclusion of a GIF potentially hints at the involvement of a particular studio and animator.
  • Fans are advised to take this information with a grain of salt and wait for official announcements.

The anime adaptation of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an ambitious and promising project, according to a new rumor. X (formerly known as Twitter) user @o_yms_ revealed hints and teasers about the rumored show in a tweet marking the second mention of the alleged adaptation, with the first one surfacing last year alongside a similar rumor for Ghost of Tsushima.

The tweet also provided a clue about which studio might be involved in the project. According to the post, Bibury Animation Studios appears to be the potential candidate due to a reference GIF from the opening of the Magical Destroyer anime found in the tweet’s reply section. 

Furthermore, the GIF seemingly hints at the involvement of Kenichi Kutsuna, the individual responsible for specifically animating the opening of Magical Destroyers. Currently a freelancer, it’s possible for Kutsuna to be enlisted for the Sekiro anime alongside a different studio. What’s equally noteworthy is that the project will be drawn as opposed to ones that use CGI such as Tekken: Bloodline.

It’s crucial to approach this information cautiously as the details shared in the tweet are simply rumors & leaks and lack concrete official confirmation. Anime and gaming communities are no strangers to rumors, and while the prospect of an anime for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is undoubtedly exciting, we advise you to take this with several servings of salt and await official news.
