The official website for the anime adaptation of Bokuto Uno, Sanbasō, and Ryūtetsu's Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyō no Alderamin (Alderamin on the Sky) light novel series revealed the anime's staff on Wednesday and also revealed that the anime will premiere in July.
Tetsuo Ichimura (Ane Log 2nd OVA director, Norn9's assistant director, Bleach's episode director) is directing the anime at Madhouse. Kunio Katsuki (Aoi Bungaku Series, Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie's animation director) is in charge of character design, and Shogo Yasukawa (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Terraformars) is handling the series composition. Yoshikazu Iwanami (Baccano!, Ajin, Kill la Kill) is the sound director.
The previously revealed main cast for the anime includes:
- Nobuhiko Okamoto as Ikuta Sorōku
- Risa Taneda as Yatorishino Igsem
- Ryōsuke Kanemoto as Torway Remion
- Junji Majima as Matthew Tetdrich
- Haruka Chisuga as Haroma Bekker
- Inori Minase as Shamille Kitra Katvarnmaninik
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 published the eighth novel on October 10, and it will publish the ninth volume on April 9. Dengeki Comics shipped the fourth volume of Taiki Kawakami's manga adaptation on Thursday.
