The new teaser visual gives us a better look at the mysterious teaser shared earlier this month, with the series’ main character in full profile in the new image. Previously, we had a close up look at just a strand of her hair.

Next up is a commentary video from Aoi Yuki, with some quick detail on Biwa, the main character of the series, to get you excited for Episode 1 and the incredible cast and crew involved with The Heike Story.

And finally, the official synopsis for the series:

A young orphan named Biwa is taken in by the powerful Taira Clan—also known as the Heike—after their leader witnesses her extraordinary psychic abilities.

Unfortunately, what she predicts is a future of bloodshed, violence, and civil war. Inspired by the 12th-century epic tale Heike Monogatari.

As announced earlier this month, episodes of The Heike Story will launch a full season ahead of its Japanese broadcast, right here on Funimation. You can catch Episode 1 today!
