About The Tale of the Outcasts manga
The Tale of the Outcasts (ノケモノたちの夜, Nokemono-tachi no Yoru) TV anime is based on the eponymous manga series written and illustrated by Makoto Hoshino. It was serialized in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shōnen Sunday from August 2019 to April 2021, with the individual chapters having been collected into eight tankōbon volumes.
Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the series for an English-language release. The English edition is up to Volume 6, which was released just a couple of days ago — on November 15, 2022.
The plot focuses on Wisteria, an orphan girl from the British Empire who was born with the ‘sight.’ Namely, Wisteria has the ability to see demons, a gift she offers to the great demon Marbas in hopes of escaping her tricky fate.
Marbas accepts her offer and the two forge a bond thereby, setting out to find their place in the world and start a peaceful life together.
This alternate British Empire is populated by humans and humanoid beasts. The Tale of the Outcasts falls under the historical fantasy genre but other tags also come to mind. Think in terms of demons and supernatural creatures.
