Heavy Object Anime Listed With 24 Episodes by French Streamer

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

French anime streaming service Anime Digital Network listed the upcoming television anime of Kazuma Kamachi's Heavy Object light novel series with 24 episodes.

The series will premiere on Tokyo MX, MBS, TV Aichi, BS11, and AT-X on October 2.

The anime's official website previously streamed the anime's first promotional video in August.

The story by the author of A Certain Magical Index revolves around Objects — powerful, massive weapons that change the course of warfare — and Elite Object pilots. An odd Elite girl named Milinda meets Quenser, a student who aims to become a Object mechanic, with the soldier-in-training Heivia on a snowy battlefield.

The series stars Natsuki Hanae as Quenser, Kaito Ishikawa as Heivia, Eri Suzuki as Milinda, and Shizuka Itou as Major Floretia Capistrano.

Takashi Watanabe (Slayers, Shakugan no Shana franchises, Ikki Tousen) is serving as chief director of the series at J.C. Staff. Chikara Sakurai (Little Busters!, Little Busters! Refrain) is serving as assistant director, Hiroyuki Yoshino (Magi: The Kingdom of Magic, Accel World, World Trigger) is handling the series composition, and Atsuko Watanabe (Valkyria Chronicles, Unbreakable Machine-Doll) is adapting Nagi's original character designs for anime. SANZIGEN is handling the 3DCG animation and Maiko Iuchi (A Certain Magical Index, A Certain Scientific Railgun) is composing the soundtrack.

Rock band ALL OFF will perform the show's opening theme song "One More Chance!!," and singer Kano (Wish Upon the Pleiades opening) will perform the ending theme "Dea Brave."

Kamachi launched the light novel series with illustration by Nagi in 2009, and Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko imprint published the ninth volume in April. Shinsuke Inue serialized a manga adaptation in Dengeki Black Maoh and Dengeki Maoh from 2009 to 2011. Sakae Saitō serialized another manga, Heavy Object S, in Dengeki Maoh from 2011 to 2013. Saitō then launched the Heavy Object A manga in the same magazine in February.
