Rosario + Vampire's Inagaki, Yamaguchi Make Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōkan Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's November issue of Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Magazine is announced Saturday that Takayuki Inagaki (Rosario + Vampire, Desert Punk) will direct the anime of Yū Moroboshi's Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōkan (Aerial Combat Wizard Candidates' Instructor) light novel series at Diomedea. Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Rosario + Vampire, Desert Punk) will be in charge of series composition and scripts.
The story is set in a world where humanity, driven off the land by the threat of magical armored insects, now live in aerial floating cities. Thus wizards — aerial combat mages who fight the insects with magical powers — came into being.
Kanata Age (Eiji) is a young man who lives on the floating wizard academy city of "Misutogan." He was once celebrated as the "Black Master Swordsman," the elite ace of the S128 special team. However, he is now despised as the "traitor of the special team." One day, he is assigned as the instructor of E601, a team that has suffered 10 consecutive defeats. E601 has three girls — Misora Whitale, Lecty Eisenach, and Rico Flamel — with one or two peculiar quirks.
Moroboshi launched the light novel series with illustrations by Mikihiro Amami last July, and Kadokawa's Fujimi Shobo published the fourth volume in July.
