Story of boy puppeteer & female automaton based on Reiji Kaitō's light novels

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Reiji Kaitō's Unbreakable Machine-Doll (Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai) light novel series began streaming the anime's first promotional video on Saturday.

The "symphonic school battle action" story follows a boy puppeteer named Raishin Akabane he travels from Japan with his female automaton Yaya to study at the highest institution for "Machinart" (the craft of making automatons). A combat tournament at this Walpurgis Royal Academy in England determines the top puppeteer or "Maō."

Kaito launched the light novel series with illustrations by LLO (Mushi-Uta, Oreshura) in 2009, and the 10th volume shipped in January. Hakaru Takagi launched a manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2010.

Update: Replaced video with official video from Media Factory.
