posted on 2009-10-19 12:33 EDT
The official website for the television anime adaptation of Hiroyuki Yoshino and Kenetsu Satou's Seikon no Qwaser manga has launched on Monday with a 69-second promotional video in 1M or 2M bandwidth. The mature supernatural action story follows the students of the privately-run St. Mikhailov Academy — in particular, a boy named Aleksander who is a qwaser, or a manipulator of the element of iron. The story is known for its heavy emphasis on fan service, especially with breast milk as a plot device. Yoshino was the anime series script supervisor on Denpa teki na Kanojo, Macross Frontier, and the My-Hime and My-Otome projects. Satou drew the manga adaptations of My-Hime and My-Otome.
The anime will premiere this January with an opening theme song sung by Faylan (CANAAN's "mind as judgement"). Also on Monday, the November issue of Akita Shoten's Champion Red magazine has bundled a "Champion Red Premium DVD" with the uncensored special promotional video for Seikon no Qwaser. Tokyopop announced at New York Anime Festival last month that it has licensed the original manga for North America.
