Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it has acquired the streaming and home video rights for Blade Dance of the Elementalers (Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance), the television anime adaptation of Yū Shimizu's light novel series of the same name.

Crunchyroll will stream the series as it airs.

In Yū Shimizu's original "elemental fantasy" Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance novels, only a pure girl may enter into a spirit contract. At Areishia Spirit Academy, the daughters of nobility are assembled to take elite classes and become spirit elementalists. A boy named Kamito happened to be peeping on a student named Claire while she was taking a bath, and he accidentally makes a contract with a spirit instead of Claire. Now, Kamito has become something once thought impossible in this world — a male spirit elementalist.

The series stars:

Makoto Furukawa (Golden Time) as Kazehaya Kamito

Ibuki Kido (Golden Time, OniAi) as Claire Rouge

Kana Yūki as Rinslet Laurenfrost

Shizuka Ishigami (Nagi no Asukara) as Ellis Fahrengart

Saori Ōnishi as Fianna Ray Ordesia

Ai Kakuma (Dog & Scissors, Campione!) as Terminus Est

Tetsuya Yanagisawa (High School DxD, Destiny of the Shrine Maiden) will direct the series at studio TNK (School Days, High School DxD). Takao Yoshioka (WATAMOTE, Senran Kagura) is composing the series and Maki Fujii (07-Ghost, Destiny of the Shrine Maiden) is adapting Hanpen Sakura's original character designs.

The series will premiere in Japan on July 14.
