Kadokawa announced at its MF Bunko J Summer School Festival 2015 event on Sunday that author Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrator Shinichirou Otsuka's Re: Life in a different world from zero (Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu) light novel series is getting a television anime adaptation. The light novels' official website posted an illustration to commemorate the announcement and a key visual for the anime.
The official website for the series will open and will reveal a promotional video at 6:00 p.m. JST (5:00 a.m. EDT).
Kadokawa Corporation had registered the Internet domain name re-zero-anime.jp on July 8.
In the story, Subaru Natsuki is an ordinary high school student who is lost in an alternate world, where he is rescued by a beautiful, silver-haired girl. He stays near her to return the favor, but the destiny she is burdened with is more than Subaru can imagine. Enemies attack one by one, and both of them are killed. He then finds out he has the power to rewind death, back to the time he first came to this world. But only he remembers what has happened since.
The series has inspired two manga adaptations. Kadokawa published Daichi Matsue's manga Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Dai-Ichi-Shō: Ōto no Ichinichi-hen (Chapter 1: Day at the King's Capital Edition) in Monthly Comic Alive and shipped the second and final compiled volume on March 23. Square Enix publishes Makoto Fugetsu's manga Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Dai-Ni-Shō: Yashiki no Ishūkan-hen (Chapter 2: Week at a Mansion Edition) in its Big Gangan magazine. The first compiled volume shipped on March 23.
Kadokawa shipped the sixth light novel volume in Japan on March 25.
