The irregular at magic high school's Satou Starts Doll Masters Novel Series
posted on by Egan Loo
The May issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko magazine is announcing on Thursday that The irregular at magic high school's Tsutomu Satou will start a new novel series titled Doll Masters with art by tarou2, and the first book volume will ship in Japan on July 10.
The novel series takes place in the year 2400, where the world is controlled by the “Solar System Alliance.” The reason the Alliance was able to take control is because they wield mobile weapons. Those humanoid weapons use “Cyclonics” electric chips that convert the superpowers and wisdom bequeathed to mankind into interference power. These humanoid weapons which amplify their pilot's psychic powers are called “Titanic Dolls,” or just “Dolls” for short. Dolls do not lose to other weapons, and are part of the Solar System Alliance's unit, “Sophia,” who keep the world under the Alliance's thumb.
However, this will soon change when two Doll Masters — Aoi Saotome and Reine Ward Takajo — have a fateful meeting at a high school in an aerial city.
The television anime adaptation of Satou's Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei (The irregular at magic high school) light novels began airing earlier this month. Aniplex of America is streaming the series on four sites in North America as it airs.
