The official website for the television anime adaptation of author Carlo Zen and illustrator Shinobu Shinotsuki's Yōjo Senki (The Military Chronicles of a Little Girl) light novel series began streaming the anime's teaser promotional video on Friday. The anime now has the full title Yōjo Senki: Saga of Tanya the Evil.
The video and the tagline on the show's website reads: "That is a monster in little girl's clothing."
The website also revealed the character designs for three main characters on Friday.
Tanya, the Imperial Military's aviation mage officer
Relgen, the Imperial Military General Staff Headquarters' service corps staff officer
Seetour, the Imperial Military General Staff Headquarters' service corps vice Chief of Staff
The novel series centers on a young girl who fights on the frontlines in war. She has blonde hair, blue eyes, and nearly transparent white skin, and she flies through the air and mercilessly strikes down her opponents. Her name is Tanya Degurechov, and she speaks with a young girl's lisp and commands the army. Tanya used to be one of Japan's elite office workers, but because of a wrathful god, was reborn as a little girl. Tanya prioritizes optimization and career advancement above all, and she will become the most dangerous entity among the Imperial Army's mages.
Zen and Shinotsuki launched the novel series in 2013. Kadokawa's Enterbrain brand published the sixth novel on June 30. Chika Tojō (Code Geass: Oz the Reflection 02) is serializing a manga version in Kadokawa's Monthly Comp Ace magazine.
