The Übel Blatt (Ubel Blatt) panel at Anime Expo 2024 unveiled the main staff, additional cast, the first promo, and a key visual (pictured) on Friday. The television anime is scheduled to premiere in January 2025. Hina Tachibana (Maougun Saikyou no Majutsushi wa Ningen datta) is joining the cast as Peepi. Takashi Naoya (Jitsu wa Ore, Saikyou deshita?) is directing the television anime at Satelight and Staple Entertainment. Tatsuya Takahashi (Saihate no Paladin) is in charge of the series composition, and Kiyoshi Tateishi (Kinsou no Vermeil) is designing the characters. Übel Blatt adapts Etorouji Shiono's dark fantasy manga, which was originally published in three chapters in Gangan YG (now Young Gangan) in January 2004, later published as Übel Blatt 0 (Ubel Blatt 0). The dark fantasy manga continued in the magazine in December 2004 and ran until November 2009. Following a two-year hiatus, the manga resumed in Big Gangan in December 2011 and ended in March 2019. Square Enix published the 23rd and final volume in June 2019. The third issue also published the first chapter of the Übel Blatt II: Shiseru Ou no Kishidan sequel manga on Saturday. Yen Press licensed the manga in English in February 2014 for an 2-in-1 omnibus release and shipped the 11th volume—containing volumes 22 and 23—in December 2019. The manga has also been published in Spanish, German, and Italian. PV Source: Comic Natalie
