The official Twitter account for the Comic Alive magazine's editors announced on Sunday that anime adaptations for five of the MG Bunko J light novel titles have been green-lit, including Tsukasa Kawaguchi's Madan no Ō to Vanadis. The announcement was first made at Media Factory's Summer School Festival 2013 event.
The titular Vanadis of the fantasy story are beautiful girls who ride into battle, brandishing weapons received from dragons. There are seven such Vanadis who rule seven territories and instill fear in neighboring countries. A boy named Tinguru is a minor noble in the kingdom of Buryūnu who encounters a Vanadis in battle. She is the silver-haired, red-eyed "silver fraulein" Eren. She defeats him, but instead of killing him, she takes him prisoner.
Kawaguchi launched the light novel series in 2011 with art by Yoshi☆yo, and Media Factory published the seventh volume this month. Artist Nobuhiko Yanai has been drawing the manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine since 2011.
