News Irregular at Magic High School Anime's New Ad Announces ELISA's Ending Song
posted on 2014-02-01 12:30 EST
The official website for the television anime of Tsutomu Satou's Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei (The irregular at magic high school) light novel series began streaming a new commercial on Sunday. Both the commercial and the website announced that singer ELISA will contribute the show's ending theme song "Millenario."
The "Millenario" single will go on sale on April 30.
The anime's story takes place in a world in which magic is not a fairy tale, but has existed for nearly one hundred years. In the spring, the Private Magic University Affiliated High School (Magic High School for short) is welcoming its new students, and names the top incoming student with the best grades the Bloom (read as "garland" in Japanese). The student called the Weed is the Bloom's replacement.
Siblings Tatsuya (Yuichi Nakamura) and Miyuki Shiba (Saori Hayami) are designated as the Weed and Bloom, respectively. Tatsuya is a young man who always has a farsighted expression, and Miyuki is a young woman who feels far more for her brother than sibling love. Since the day the two entered the gates of the elite school, the establishment's peaceful days have become chaotic.
Other cast members include:
Yumi Uchiyama as Erika Chiba
Satomi Satou as Mizuki Shibata
Sora Amamiya as Honoka Mitsui (pictured right) and Yuiko Tatsumi as Shizuku Kitayama (pictured left)
Additionally, Atsushi Tamaru will play Mikihiko Yoshida (pictured far left in below image).
The website announced last month that another singer, LiSA, will contribute the opening theme song. Both LiSA and ELISA will sing at a March 23 stage event at the Anime Japan convention. Voice cast members Yūichi Nakamura, Saori Hayami, Sora Amamiya, and Yuiko Tatsumi will also appear.
Manabu Ono (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Saki Episode of Side A) is directing the anime at the studio Madhouse. Original novel illustrator Kana Ishida is also handling the anime character designs. Taku Iwasaki (Black Butler, Gurren Lagann, Soul Eater) is scoring the music.
The light novels have 3.15 million copies in print, and ranked as the third top-selling light novel series in Japan last year.
The anime series will premiere in Japan in April.
