posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the television anime of Yū Moroboshi's Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōkan (Aerial Combat Wizard Candidates' Instructor) light novel series began streaming a teaser video on Friday. The video previews the opening theme song "D.O.B" sung by voice actress and singer Iori Nomizu. It also announces that the anime has been delayed from April to July "due to the animation production."
The cast from the previously announced drama CDs will reprise their roles in the television anime:
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Kanata Age
Nozomi Yamamoto as Misora Whitale
Nao Toyama as Lecty Eisenach
Risa Taneda as Julie Frostor
Kaori Sadohara as Chloe Zeveni
Tetsuya Kakihara as Lloyd Allwin
Saeko Zogo as Flonne Flamel
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 in July 2013, 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.
