Kyōkaisen-jō no Horizon Light Novels Get Sunrise Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The March issue of ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Bunko Magazine is announcing on Thursday that Sunrise is producing an anime adaptation of Minoru Kawakami's Kyōkaisen-jō no Horizon light novel series. The story is set in a distant future where Japan is divided into feudal territories and conquered by other countries. There is a floating city named Musashi that is composed of eight ships in the skies. A war that will determine the fate of the world will be fought by students on the Musashi.
Kawakami has been writing the series since 2008, and the third three-volume arc ended in September. Satoyasu illustrates the light novel volumes. The website of the anime will open at the http://genesis-horizon.net/ address.
