The official website for the Riddle Story of Devil (Akuma no Riddle) anime opened on Wednesday and revealed the staff and a piece of key visual art. Keizou Kusakawa (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha films, il sole penetra le illusioni ~ Day Break Illusion, Ro-Kyu-Bu!, Sekirei) is directing the anime at Diomedea. Kiyoko Yoshimura is in charge of the series scripts, and Naomi Ide is serving as the character designer and chief animation director.
The story is set at Myōjō Academy, a private girls' boarding school. The 10th year's Kurogumi class has 12 assassins with their sights on one target, Haru Ichinose. Tokaku Azuma is a recent transfer student who is also targeting Ichinose, but she gradually develops feelings for Ichinose.
Story creator Yun Kouga and artist Sunao Minakata launched the manga in Newtype last September, and Kadokawa published the first compiled book volume on Wednesday.
