posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official website for the Madan no Ō to Vanadis anime series began streaming the first promotional video for the anime on Wednesday. The video features the anime's opening theme song, “Ginsen no Kaze” (Wind of the Silver Flash) by Konomi Suzuki (Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, Watamote):
Ellen: My name is Eleonora Viltaria.
Tigre: Tigrevurmud Vorn.
Ellen: Understood. From now on, you are mine.
Tigre: :Sir Zaian Thenardier...
Zaian: Look at his dirty appearance! It's cloth armor! Even though you're a noble, you don't have your own armor and helmet?
Ellen: That's when I met you! I thought it would be a waste to kill you.
Limalisha: It's the first time I've had to wake up somebody like this...
Limalisha: Earl Tigrevurmud Vorn.
Girl: How much is it?
Zaian: Huh!? You came too!?
Man: You have quite the eloquence. If your throat gets thirsty, please.
Limalisha: That has nothing to do with it.
Ellen: Just notice already! Lim was the one riding that horse at the beginning.
Man: Earl Thenardier's forces are headed this way! The number of men is 3,000!
Tigre: What'd you say!?
Ellen: There's something I'd like you to do.
The video reveals that voice actress Hitomi Harada will perform the anime's ending theme song, "Schwarzer Bogen" (Black Bow).
Tatsuo Sato (Bodacious Space Pirates) is directing and overseeing the scripts at Satelight. Yousuke Kabashima (The Girl Who Leapt Through Space) is adapting Hinata Katagiri, Nobuhiko Yanai, and Yoshiwo's original character designs. Masaru Yokoyama (Freezing Vibration, Queen's Blade series) is composing the music.
The titular Vanadis of Tsukasa Kawaguchi's fantasy series are beautiful girls who ride into battle, brandishing weapons received from dragons. There are seven such Vanadis who rule seven territories and instill fear in neighboring countries. A boy named Tigre is a minor noble in the kingdom of Buryūnu who encounters a Vanadis in battle. She is the silver-haired, red-eyed "silver fraulein" Ellen. She defeats him, but instead of killing him, she takes him prisoner.
Kawaguchi launched the light novel series in 2011 with art by Yoshi☆wo, and Media Factory published the eighth volume in May. Artist Nobuhiko Yanai has been drawing the manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine since 2011.
The series will premiere on October 4.
