"Military history fantasy" anime series premieres in July

The official Twitter account for the upcoming anime adaptation of Bokuto Uno, Sanbasō, and Ryūtetsu's Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyō no Alderamin (Alderamin on the Sky) light novel series announced the theme song artists for the anime on Saturday.

Japanese rock band Kishida Kyōdan & The Akeboshi Rockets (pictured at right) will perform the opening theme song "Tenkyō no Alderamin" ("Alderamin on the Sky"). The band previously performed theme songs for Highschool of the Dead, Strike the Blood, and both seasons of GATE (Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri).

Singer Kano will perform the ending theme song "nameless." Kano previously performed theme songs for Wish Upon the Pleiades and Heavy Object.

The staff of Alderamin on the Sky revealed the show's first promotional video and main visual at the Dengeki Bunko Haru no Saiten 2016 event in March.

The series 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, and Keiji Inai (Outbreak Company, Heavy Object, Karneval) is composing the music.

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.
