This October, anime fans will have the time of their lives with two same-day-as-Japan eXpress titles and an a-laugh-a-minute slice of life comedy!
Tota Konoe leads a tranquil but mundane life in a village and dreams of making a name for himself in the city one day. To achieve his goal, he must defeat his guardian, the magician Yukihime, in combat, but despite challenging her daily, his attempts have thus far only ended in his defeat. On one such day, their usual fight is disrupted by the sudden appearance of a bounty hunter. Tota is heavily wounded by the bounty hunter but is saved when he is granted immortality by Yukihime, who reveals her true identity to be a vampire!
UQ HOLDER! premieres 3 October, every Tuesday at 10pm, same day as Japan, first and exclusively on Animax.
