Diomedea Animates Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōkan TV Anime With Director Takayuki Inagaki

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Nozomi Yamamoto, Nao Tōyama, more also listed in drama CD adaptation of light novel series

Publisher Fujimi Shobo opened an official web page for the TV anime adaptation of Yū Moroboshi's Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōkan (Aerial Combat Wizard Candidates' Instructor) light novel series on Saturday, and revealed the staff for the series as well.

Takayuki Inagaki (Rosario + Vampire, My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy) will direct the series at diomedéa (Gingitsune, Astarotte's Toy) with series composition by Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Rosario + Vampire, ToHeart2).

The website is also listing that a drama CD adaptation of the novels has been green-lit, and will star the following cast:

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Kanata Age

Nozomi Yamamoto as Misora Whitale

Nao Tōyama as Lecty Eisenach

Risa Taneda as Julie Frostor

Kaori Sadohara as Chloe Zeveni

Tetsuya Kakihara as Lloyd Allwin

Saeko Zōgō as Flonne Flamel

There is no indication by the website that the actors will reprise their roles for the anime.

The drama CD will be released in Japan on November 20 for the price of 3,000 yen (about US$28). The drama CD will feature an original theme song titled, "Believe" by Akari Tsuda (White Album 2, ToHeart2 Dungeon Travelers).

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 on July 19. Arisu Shidō launched a manga adaptation in the September issue of Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine on July 26.
