The December issue of Kodansha's Shōnen Sirius magazine is revealing on Monday that the previously announced anime adaptation of writer Bokuto Uno and illustrators Sanbasō and Ryūtetsu's Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyō no Alderamin (English title: Alderamin on the Sky) light novel series will be a TV anime series that will premiere in 2016.
In the "military history fantasy" series, the Katvarna Empire is at war with the neighboring Republic of Kioka. In the Katvarna Empire, the lazy, woman-admiring Ikuta hates war, but due to certain circumstances, he grudgingly takes the High Grade Military Officer Exam. No one would have expected that this 17-year-old young man would eventually become a soldier called a great commander by others. Ikuta survives this world engulfed in war with his superior intellect.
Kadokawa released the first novel in June 2012. Due to Sanbasō's poor health, Ryūtetsu took over illustrating the series with the sixth novel. Kadokawa published the eighth novel on October 10. The third volume of Taiki Kawakami's manga adaptation also shipped in Japan on October 10.
