posted on by Karen Ressler
Japanese music label FlyingDog announced on Wednesday that Iori Nomizu will perform the ending theme song "Chi" for the television anime of Masamune Kuji's light novel series Hybrid×Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia (Masō Gakuen H×H).
Nomizu is also performing the opening theme song "miele paradiso," which Kadokawa previewed in a promotional video last month:
The single CD with the opening and ending theme songs will ship on July 27. The regular edition will cost 1,200 yen (about US$11) and a limited edition with a music video for "Chi" on DVD will cost 1,800 yen (about US$16).
The show's cast includes:
- Kenji Akabane as Kizuna Hida
- Akari Kageyama as Aine Chidorigafuchi
- Juri Nagatsuma as Hayuru Himekawa
- Chinatsu Akasaki as Yuricia Farandole
- Rika Kinugawa as Reiri Hida
- Hina Kino as Sylvia Silkcut
The cast completely differs from the previous two drama CDs that shipped for the series.
Hiroyuki Furukawa (My Wife is the Student Council President) is directing the series at Production IMS, and Yasutomo Yamada (Venus Versus Virus, Motto To Love Ru) is overseeing the scripts. Kana Miyai (Castle Town Dandelion sub-character design) is the character designer, Masakatsu Oomuro (Military!, I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying) is the sound director, Dax is producing the sound, and Flying Dog is producing the music. The Masō Gakuen Production Committee is producing the series.
The "ultimate battle action" story centers around Kizuna Hida, who visits the strategic defense academy Ataraxia at his big sister's request. "There, he encounters Aine Chidorigafuchi, a girl piloting the magical armor Zerosu. Aine suddenly pulls off her clothes before Kizuna's eyes. 'Don't look, you pervert—' 'No, you're the one!?' However, a communique about a serious mission arrives from Kizuna's sister. The mission — to rub Aina's chest!? Actually, Kizuna has the power to level up a girl through indecent acts. With a battle against another world, the future depends on this power."
Kuji launched the light novel series with illustrations by Hisasi (Cute Devil Girlfriend, Netoge no Yome wa Onna no Ko ja nai to Omotta?, Bikini Warriors) and mecha designs by Kurogin (CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon costumes) and Kuji in February 2014. Kadokawa's Sneaker Bunko imprint published the seventh volume on January 30. Riku Ayakawa has been drawing a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Comp Ace magazine since last June.
