posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

The official Twitter account for the television anime adaptation of Tarō Hitsuji's Roku de Nashi Majutsu Kōshi to Akashic Records (Akashic Records of bastard magic instructor) light novels revealed the show's April premiere, three more cast members, and six new character visuals on Sunday.

The six new visuals, including the three new cast members, are:

Sōma Saitō as Glenn Radars

Akane Fujita as Sistine Fibel

Yume Miyamoto as Rumia Tingel

Ari Ozawa as Re-L Rayford

Hiroki Takahashi as Albert Frazer

Eri Kitamura as Celica Arfonia

The six poster visuals are on display at the Kokusai-Tenjijō station on the Rinkai! line in Tokyo from December 25-31.

Minato Kazuto is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS. Touko Machida (Lucky Star, The IDOLM@STER, 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 Shōnen 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.
