The 2009-2011 five-volume light novel series is set in the same world as Inumura's To Aru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku (Recollection of a Certain Airship Pilot/The Princess and the Pilot) novel and anime film, although it is set earlier with a different cast of characters.
Toshimasa Suzuki (Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne, Dance in the Vampire Bund, Heroic Age) is directing the anime off scripts supervised by Shinichi Inotsume (The Unlimited - Hyōbu Kyōsuke, Hayate the Combat Butler, Ristorante Paradiso). Hiroki Harada ([email protected], Romeo × Juliet, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is designing the characters. Aoi Yūki and Ayana Taketatsu's singing unit petit milady will perform the opening theme song.

The orphaned prince, now renamed Kalel, embarks on a one-way journey to discover the ends of the heavens. Aboard the levitating island of Isura, he meets a girl named Claire.
The anime stars Aoi Yūki as Claire Cruz, Ayana Taketatsu as Ariel Albus, Kaito Ishikawa as Ignacio Axis, and Natsuki Hanae as Kalel Albus/Carl La El
The series will premiere in on Tokyo MX on January 6.
