Dragonar Academy Light Novel Series Gets Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The official Twitter account for the Comic Alive magazine's editors announced on Sunday that anime adaptations for five of the MG Bunko J light novel titles have been green-lit, including Shiki Mizuchi's Dragonar Academy (Seikoku no Dragonar). The announcement was first made at Media Factory's Summer School Festival 2013 event. North American manga publisher Seven Seas Entertainment describes the story of Dragonar Academy:
Learning to ride and tame dragons comes easy to most students at Ansarivan Dragonar Academy—except for first-year student Ash Blake, who is known by his fellow classmates as the “number one problem child.” Poor Ash is the laughing stock at school because, despite his unfashionably large star-shaped brand that marks him as a future dragon master, he has nothing to show for it. His dragon has never appeared.
Until now, that is. One fateful day, Ash's dragon awakes in full glory, but appears different than any dragon ever seen before—in the form of a beautiful girl! What's worse, Ash soon discovers that this new dragon has attitude to spare, as she promptly informs him that she is the master, and he, the servant.
Ash's problems with dragon riding have only just begun.
Mizuchi launched the light novel series in 2010 with art by Shimesabakohada, and Media Factory published the 13th volume this month. Artist Ran has been drawing the manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine since last year. Seven Seas announced in May that it will release Ran's manga version in North America.
