posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
A stage event at the Dengeki Bunko Autumn Festival 2015 event revealed on Sunday that writer Bokuto Uno and illustrators Sanbasō and Ryūtetsu's Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyō no Alderamin (English title: Alderamin on the Sky) light novel series is getting an anime adaptation. The event revealed an anime teaser visual (pictured below).
In the "military history fantasy" series, the Katvarna Empire is at war with the neighboring Republic of Kioka. In the Katvarna Empire, the lazy, woman-admiring Ikuta hates war, but due to certain circumstances, he grudgingly takes the High Grade Military Officer Exam. No one would have expected that this 17-year-old young man would eventually become a soldier called a great commander by others. Ikuta survives this world engulfed in war with his superior intellect.
Kadokawa released the first novel in June 2012. Due to Sanbasō's poor health, Ryūtetsu took over illustrating the series with the sixth novel. Kadokawa will publish the eighth novel on October 10.
Taiki Kawakami's manga adaptation currently has two volumes in print, and the third volume will also ship on October 10.
The stage event also revealed a drama CD for the franchise. Uno is writing the drama CD's story.
