This year's 47th issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko Magazine (cover shown below) is revealing the main cast for the television anime of writer Bokuto Uno's Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyō no Alderamin (English title: Alderamin on the Sky) light novels on Thursday.

The series will premiere in 2016.
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 the original illustrator Sanbasō's poor health, Ryūtetsu took over illustrating the series with the sixth novel. Kadokawa published the eighth novel on October 10. The third volume of Taiki Kawakami's manga adaptation also shipped in Japan on October 10.
