There’s still time to call it “Soul Hunter Reborn,” folks! (Kidding, kidding!)

Hakyū Hoshin Engi is based on Ryu Fujisaki’s Hoshin Engi (Soul Hunter) manga. The show is being helmed by Masahiro Aizawa at C-Station, with Yoshimitsu Yamashita (Blade of the Immortal, Samurai Flamenco) providing character designs. Natsuko Takahashi (Yuyushiki, Fantastic Detective Labyrinth) is in charge of series composition.
Funimation describes the series as:
When his entire clan is wiped out by a beautiful fox demon, young Taikobo is put in charge of the Hoshin Project. Burdened with sealing away evil immortals, Taikobo must figure out who he can trust while trying to save the world.
