We learned at the end of June 2022 that the Tales of the Outcasts manga, known originally as Nokemono-tachi no Yoru, is getting an anime adaptation. At Crunchyroll Expo 2022, Crunchyroll confirmed their pickup of the project that was set for a January 2023 debut. The series is now getting its home video releases handled by Happinet and the distributor is making this a one-and-done approach. The thirteen-episode series is set for a May 26th, 2023 release where the DVD box set is 31,500 yen and the Blu-ray box set is 32,500 yen. Extras include the clean opening and closing sequences as well as an audio commentary for an unspecified number of episodes by the cast.

The series is directed by Yasutaka Yamamoto and based on the series composition by Kenichi Yamashita. Mina Osawa is handling the character designs and serving as the chief animation supervisor alongside Hikaru Suzuki. Ashi Productions is on board for the animation.

The series features the opening theme song “Ashita no Katachi” performed by Ayana Taketatsu while the ending theme song is “Rewrite” by Hakubi.

The Japanese cast includes Ayana Taketatsu as Wisteria, Katsuyuki Konishi as Marbas, Ryota Osaka as Snow, Risa Imayanagi as Diana, Junichi Suwabe as Naberius, Ryotaro Okiayu as Grand Master, Kentaro Kumagai as Takenami, Yu Kobayashi as Astaroth, Chitose Morinaga as Maury, Karin Oda as Harriet, Yuki Ono as Luther, Shunsuke Takeuchi as Dantalion, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Sytry, Makoto Furukawa as Holmes, Atsushi Abe as Watson, Gara Takashima as Iberta, Hidenori Takahashi as Stanley, Kōtarō Nishiyama as Shura, Iori Saeki as Vivian, and Shizuka Itou as Lucia.

Plot Concept: This is the story of Wisteria, an orphaned girl lost in darkness, and Marbas, an immortal being who shares her loneliness. The unlikely companions met on a quiet, uneventful night, and they set off together in search of the light. What begins as a chance meeting on the edge of the late nineteenth-century British Empire soon became a full-fledged journey to find their place in the world.
