What’s a little reincarnation between friends? The upcoming TV anime adaptation (or you could say reincarnation!) of the Dead Mount Death Play manga—written by Ryohgo Narita and illustrated by Shinta Fujimoto—released a brand new trailer today giving us the first taste of the opening theme song from popular YouTuber Sou and what the characters will sound like! Also revealed was the April 10 premiere for the series!

Dead Mount Death Play is being directed by Manabu Ono (Sword Art Online: Alicization), who also serves as the series composer, at studio GEEKTOYS, with character designs by Hisashi Abe (Berserk) and music by F.M.F. Crunchyroll, which will stream the anime shortly after it airs in Japan from April 10, describes the series as such:
It’s a showdown for the ages as the legendary hero takes on the corpse god necromancer, but when the dust settles, something isn’t quite right… In the final moments of their epic confrontation, the corpse god’s final gambit shot was wholly unexpected — reincarnation magic! Across space and time, a boy named Polka Shinoyama awakens feeling…not quite himself…… Who could’ve expected that the climactic battle between good and evil would turn out like this??
