The official website for the upcoming original anime Shūmatsu no Izetta (Izetta of the End) revealed on Friday that the anime will premiere on October 1 at 11:00 p.m. on AT-X. The anime will also air on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, and BS11.
In the story, in 1939, the imperialist nation of Germania launched a sudden invasion of its neighboring countries. This conflagration engulfed all of Europe in one fell swoop, and the era was dragged into the maelstrom of war. Then in 1940, Germania set its sights on Elystadt, a tiny principality blessed with breathtaking greenery and water in the Alps.
The anime centers on Izetta (pictured right in image at right), a descendant of a clan of witches who had passed down mysterious powers for generations. She can cast these powers on anything she touches and manipulate it at will. Since she was little, she and her grandmother lived their lives on the road, traveling between European countries in order to hide these powers. The anime also centers on Fiine (pictured left), the sole daughter in line to succeed Rudolph III, the ruler of the Principality of Elystadt. From a young age she has been adored for her wisdom and kind heart by not only her retainers, but by all the citizens. Since her father has been stricken by illness, she has been busy preparing for Germania's invasion in his stead.
The anime has not yet revealed its staff and cast.
