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 Yū Shimizu's Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance (Spirit Elementalist's Blade Dance). The announcement was first made at Media Factory's Summer School Festival 2013 event.
In the "elemental fantasy" of Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance, only a pure girl may enter into a spirit contract. At Areishia Spirit Academy, the daughters of nobility are assembled to take elite classes and become spirit elementalists. A boy named Kamito happened to be peeping on a student named Claire while she was taking a bath, and he accidentally makes a contract with a spirit instead of Claire. Now, Kamito has become something once thought impossible in this world — a male spirit elementalist.
Shimizu launched the light novel series in 2010 with art by Hanpen Sakura, and Media Factory published the 11th volume this month. Artist Issei Hyōju (MM!) has been drawing the manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine since last year.
