Theme song performers, more of the cast confirmed for Fall fantasy mystery anime

The official website for the Zetsuen no Tempest television anime series began streaming the second promotional video on Sunday. The video features the opening theme song "Spirit Inspiration" by the Japanese rock band Nothing's Carved in Stone.

The anime will premiere on October 4.

The anime adapts Kyou Shirodaira, Arihide Sano, and Ren Saizaki's fantasy mystery manga. The story centers around Yoshino Takigawa (played by Kouki Uchiyama), an ordinary high school student with a mysterious friend named Mahiro Fuwa (Toshiyuki Toyonaga). Mahiro made a deal with a witch named Hakaze to hunt down the killers of his parents and sister. Now Mahiro is missing, and Hakaze confronts Yoshino. Yoshino find himself involved in a crisis that may doom the entire world.

Masahiro Ando (Sword of the Stranger, Hana-Saku Iroha) is directing the series at the anime studio Bones. Mari Okada (Black Butler, anohana, Hana-Saku Iroha) is serving as the head writer.

The manga has been running in Monthly Shonen Gangan since 2009, and Square Enix will publish the seventh compiled book volume in September.

Update: Niconico video added for viewers having sound trouble. Thanks, Chipp12.
