Created by Shizuya Wazarai, the Cestvs: The Roman Fighter manga is a grim take on the Roman Civilization, and the horror it brought upon the captured innocents deemed as slaves.

Fuji TV’s decision to turn the manga into an anime led to its Ultra+ animation block taking in the offer.

Now, Cestvs: The Roman Fighter’s official website has released a PV, new visuals and new information about the cast, staff and opening theme song. The anime is set to be released on April 14th in Fuji TV channel.

The PV shows Cestvs, a young slave pushed into the world of fighting to entertain the higher ups in Ancient Rome. He learns the art of boxing and engages in many fights to survive in that cruel world.
