Sōma Saitō, Akane Fujita, Yume Miyamoto star in series animated by LIDEN FILMS

A stage event at the "Fantasia Bunko Daikanshasai" event on Saturday revealed the first promo video, main cast, staff, and two character visuals for the anime adaptation of Taro Hitsuji's Roku de Nashi Majutsu Kōshi to Akashic Records (Akashic Records of bastard magic instructor) light novels. The event also revealed that the anime project will be a television anime series.

The anime stars:

  • Sōma Saitō as Glenn Radars
  • Akane Fujita as Sistine Fibel
  • Yume Miyamoto as Rumia Tingel

Minato Kazuto is directing the anime at Liden Films. Touko Machida (Lucky Star, The [email protected], The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan) is both writing and overseeing the scripts, Satoshi Kimura (Terraformars) is serving as both character designer and chief animation director, and Hiroaki Tsutsumi (Kuromukuro, Monster Musume, Orange) is composing the music.

In the "action fantasy" story, Glenn is a part-time teacher at a magic school who is inclined to write "self-study" on the blackboard and then take a nap. One of his students, Sistine, gets angry and challenges him to a duel and he is easily defeated. However, when a terrible incident threatens the school, Glenn shows intense dedication to protecting his students.

Kurone Mishima (The Devil is a Part-Timer! High School!, KonoSuba – God's blessing on this wonderful world!!) provides the illustrations for the original light novels. Fujimi Shobo published the seventh light novel on October 20 in Japan.

Aosa Tsunemi began drawing a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Shonen Ace magazine in March 2015. Fujimi Shobo also published a collection of short stories, titled Roku de Nashi Majutsu Kōshi to Tsuisō Nishi, in March.

Update: Added larger images of character visuals. [Via MoCa News]
