"Military history fantasy" anime premieres in July 8; Crunchyroll to stream series

The official website of the television anime adaptation of Bokuto Uno, Sanbasō, and Ryūtetsu's Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyō no Alderamin (Alderamin on the Sky) light novel series began streaming the second promotional video for the anime on Thursday. The video previews the anime's opening theme "Tenkyō no Alderamin" ("Alderamin on the Sky") by Kishida Kyōdan & The Akeboshi Rockets.

The series will premiere in Japan on July 8 on Tokyo MX, followed by Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, BS Fuji, and AT-X in the following days. Crunchyroll will stream the series as it airs in Japan.

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.

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

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. Singer Kano will perform the ending theme song "nameless."
