Trinity Seven Manga Inspires Anime Film

Fantasy manga previously inspired TV anime series in 2014

This year's August issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age magazine is announcing on Saturday that Kenji Saitō and Akinari Nao's Trinity Seven - The Seven Magicians manga is getting an anime film adaptation.

Saito and Nao launched the manga in Kadokawa's (Fujimi Shobo's) Monthly Dragon Age magazine in 2011, and Kadokawa shipped the 14th compiled volume (pictured at right) in Japan on April 9. Kadokawa will ship the 15th volume on August 9.

Yen Press is publishing the original manga in English, and it shipped the fifth volume on May 24. The company describes the series:

Arata Kasuga transfers to the Royal Biblia Academy to solve the mystery of the destruction that is ravaging the world and—more importantly—has stolen his cousin Hijiri from him. It's a tough road that lies ahead of Arata, but nothing's impossible when you have seven beautiful girls—each a master of her own magical art — at your side!

The manga previously inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in October 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks will release the series with an English dub on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on August 16.
