posted on by Egan Loo
The 19th volume of Tsutomu Satou's Irregular at Magic High School light novel series is announcing on Thursday that a theatrical film has been green-lit. The announcement proclaims that "Tatsuya Shiba will become a legend."
Tsutomu Satou began writing the novel series with character designs and illustrations by Kana Ishida (Aquarion Evol character design) in 2008 under the Dengeki Bunko label. Yen Press licensed the original light novel series and the spinoff manga The Honor Student at Magic High School.
The 26-episode anime adaptation debuted in April 2014 from director Manabu Ono at Madhouse.
Aniplex of America licensed anime and describes the story:

The brother, with a somewhat philosophical expression, and the younger sister who holds feelings a little stronger than sibling love for him…
Ever since these two have entered through the gates of this prestigious school, the calm campus was beginning to change...
