The official website for the Zetsuen no Tempest television anime series began streaming the first promotional video on Friday. The 66-second video features character design art for the main characters Yoshino Takigawa (played by Kouki Uchiyama) and Mahiro Fuwa (Toshiyuki Toyonaga).
The series is adapting Kyou Shirodaira, Arihide Sano, and Ren Saizaki's fantasy mystery manga. The story centers around Yoshino, an ordinary high school student with a mysterious friend named Mahiro. Mahiro made a deal with a witch named Hakaze to hunt down the killers of his parents and sister. Now Mahiro is missing, and Hakaze confronts Yoshino. Yoshino find himself involved in a crisis that may doom the entire world.
Studio Bones is producing the project. Masahiro Ando (Sword of the Stranger, Hana-Saku Iroha) is directing the series, and Mari Okada (Black Butler, AnoHana, Hana-Saku Iroha) is serving as series script editor. The anime will premiere in October.
The manga has been running in Monthly Shonen Gangan since 2009, and Square Enix shipped the sixth compiled book volume in May.
