Funimation Acquires Kaze No Stigma from Gonzo (Updated)

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
24-episode supernatural action anime to be released in summer of 2009

The North American distributor FUNimation Entertainment has announced the acquisition of the Kaze no Stigma television series from the Gonzo anime studio. The anime adapts Takahiro Yamato and Hanamaru Nanto's supernatural action light novel series, which has 12 volumes so far. The story centers on Kazuma Kannagi, a man who was banished his family of fire magic users by his own father after he was defeated by his cousin Ayano. Four years later, Kazuma is now 22 and has become a wind magic user after a contract with the spirit of wind. Kazuma returns to his former home and faces Ayano again.

The anime version features director Jun'ichi Sakata (Card Captor Sakura, DNA²) and series script supervisor Mayori Sekijima (Angel Sanctuary, MoonPhase). Funimation will launch the 24-episode series on DVD in the summer of 2009.
