Historical drama Onihei is already underway as part of the winter anime season… but next month, there’s more to the story when the previously-announced prequel OVA hits shelves. Now, with the TV anime running, the trailer for Onihei ~That Man, Heizo Hasegawa~ is available to watch on YouTube.
Clocking in at 40 minutes, the prequel went into production before the TV anime and promises to be just as emotional and action-packed. It traces a young man learning about the legendary Heizo Hasegawa from the people who knew him best.
The release is available for preorder from Amazon Japan for 5,638 yen, and includes a special-edition paperback. It will be released on February 22.
