Shin Ikki Tousen/Battle Vixens Manga Gets Anime Adaptation Next Year

Yuji Shiozaki's Shin Ikki Tousen manga is being adapted into an anime that will air on the AT-X television station next year, according to Shonen Gahosha.

Shiozaki's original kki Tousen manga follows Hakufu Sonsaku, a high school student with a magatama that allows her to channel the spirit of China's Three Kingdoms era warrior Sun Ce. She battles pupils from other high schools, each of whom wields their own magatama and represents a different historical hero.

In November 2015, Shiozaki published Shin Ikki Tousen in Shonengahosha's Young King Ours magazine. In March 2020, Shonen Gahosha released the manga's fourth collected book volume. Shin Ikki Tousen Gaiden, a spinoff, debuted in Shonengahosha's new Young King BULL magazine in 2018, and the manga's first volume was released in November of same year.

Shiozaki first published the Ikki Tousen manga in Wani Books' Monthly Comic Gum magazine in 2000, serialising it until the publication ceased in May 2015. Shiozaki then continued serialising the manga until August 2015 on the Monthly Comic Gum website, which was renamed WEB Comic Gum. Tokyopop had the North American publishing rights to Shiozaki's original manga, Battle Vixens, until the company disbanded its North American publishing division in 2011.

Four prior television anime and five previous OVAs have been based on the manga. Ikki Tousen: Western Wolves is the most recent anime instalment in the series, and it was released in February 2019 on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. From January to March 2019, three episodes of the anime aired on AT-X.
