Funimation will stream the 1st episode on January 18

FUNimation Entertainment announced on Wednesday that it will stream the anime of Akamitsu Awamura's World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman (Seiken Tsukai no World Break) light novel series.

The anime will premiere on January 11 and Funimation will stream the first episode on January 18.

Funimation describes the story:

Akane Academy is just like any other school…except the students just happen to be reincarnated legendary heroes from a distant past who battled for the fate of the world. Now, evil monsters are threatening to wreak havoc, and it's up to the students of Akane Academy to stop them! Follow Moroha, Shizuno, and Satsuki as they navigate love, past lives, and kicking butt in this action fantasy with a dash of fanservice.

Takayuki Inagaki is directing the anime at diomedéa (Gingitsune , My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy) with Masakazu Ishikawa (Campione! , Kodomo no Jikan) adapting refeia 's original character designs for the series. Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Gingitsune) is in charge of the series scripts.

The cast includes:

Kaito Ishikawa as Moroha Haimura

Ayana Taketatsu as Satsuki Ranjō

Aoi Yūki as Shizuno Urushibara

Yui Ogura as Maya Shimon

Maaya Uchida as Haruka Momochi

SoftBank Creative's GA Bunko imprint launched the light novel series in 2012 with illustrations by refeia (Koiken! ~ Watashi-tachi Anime ni Natchatta! ~ ). A manga adaptation will run in Kadokawa's Monthly Comp Ace magazine.
