posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The official website for the television anime of Hisago Amazake-no's Knight's & Magic light novel series began streaming a promotional video on Wednesday. The video reveals the anime's main cast, staff, and summer premiere.

The main cast includes (Note: Character name romanizations are not official):

Rie Takahashi as Ernesti "Eru" Echevarria, a talented programmer in his previous life, now reincarnated into a fantasy world. He uses his mecha otaku knowledge to the fullest in an effort to make his own ideal Silhouette Knight.

Ayaka Ōhashi as Adeltroot "Adi" Alter, Eru's childhood friend. She has a weakness for cute things, and always hugs Eru as if he were a stuffed toy. Kid is her twin brother

Shinsuke Sugawara as Akidd "Kid" Alter, Eru's childhood friend. He learned magic from Eru when they were children, and he has grown in power and combat ability ever since. Adi is his twin sister.

Yūsuke Yamamoto (Welcome to the NHK, Walkure Romanze) is directing the anime at the studio 8-Bit. Michiko Yokote (Shirobako, ReLIFE) is in charge of the series scripts. Kenichirō Katsura (Macross 7, NAKAIMO - My Little Sister Is Among Them!) is designing the characters, and Kurogin is in charge of mecha design. Masato Kōda (Maria the Virgin Witch, KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) is composing the music.

In the story, a Japanese mecha otaku dies in a car accident and his soul is reincarnated into another world as Ernesti Echevarria. Eru inherits memories and interests from his previous life, and aims to be a pilot of a Silhouette Knight, a large humanoid weapon that really exists in his world.

Amazake-no began the ongoing story in October 2010 on the online novel platform Shōsetsuka ni Narō. Shufunotomo's Hero Bunko imprint picked up the series and published the first novel with illustrations by Kurogin in January 2013. Hero Bunko published the sixth volume in March 2016, and the seventh volume will ship on March 25.

Takuji Katō began the manga adaptation in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine on April 15.
