Irregular at Magic High School Anime Film's 2nd Teaser Video, Story Revealed

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
More returning cast revealed for film opening in Japan in early summer 2017

The official website for the Gekijōban Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei: Hoshi o Yobu Shōjo (The Irregular at Magic High School The Movie: The Girl Who Calls the Stars) anime film began streaming a second teaser video on Sunday for the film. (The linked video is region-locked to Japan.)


The film will open in Japan in early summer 2017. The staff had revealed a second key visual for the film earlier on Sunday.

The film will feature a new character named Kokoa (pictured below), who is a deserter from the National Defense Navy's base, and who ends up in Miyūki's care. Her appearance is that of a very young woman, but her true character is shrouded in mystery.

Original light novel author Tsutomu Satou is writing an original new story for the film. In the story, the seasons have changed, and it will soon be the second spring. The poor student older brother Tatsuya and the honor student younger sister Miyūki have finished their first year at their magic high school, and are on their spring break. The two go to their villa on the Ogasawara Island archipelago. After only a small moment of peace, a lone young woman named Kokoa appears before them. She has abandoned the Naval base, and she tells Tatsuya her one wish.

The film's returning cast includes:

Tsutomu Satou began writing the novel series with character designs and illustrations by Kana Ishida (Aquarion Evol character design) in 2008 under the Dengeki Bunko label. Yen Press licensed the original light novel series and the spinoff manga The Honor Student at Magic High School.

The earlier 26-episode television anime adaptation debuted in April 2014 from director Manabu Ono at Madhouse. Aniplex of America licensed the anime and released it on home video last year.
