The "Dengeki Bunko Aki no Saiten 2016" event revealed on Sunday a new character, the full title, the early summer 2017 opening date, and a new key visual for The Irregular at Magic High School anime film. A new teaser trailer debuted at the event with the new release window.
The new character is named Kokoa:
The film is titled Gekijōban Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei: Hoshi o Yobu Shōjo (The Irregular at Magic High School The Movie: The Girl Who Calls the Stars). Original light novel author Tsutomu Satou is writing an original new story for the film. Saori Hayami is reprising her role in the film as Miyuki Shiba, and Yūichi Nakamura is reprising his role as Tatsuya Shiba.
The official website previously revealed the film's first visual.
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.
