Reiji Kaitō's series launched in 2009, inspired manga, anime

Kadokawa began streaming a television commercial for the 16th compiled book volume of Reiji Kaitō's Unbreakable Machine-Doll light novel series on Friday. The video reveals that the 16th volume will be the series' last. Media Factory's MF Bunko J imprint will release the volume in two parts on July 25.

Kaito launched the light novel series with illustrations by LLO (Mushi-Uta , Oreshura ) in 2009, and the 15th volume shipped in 2015. Hakaru Takagi launched a manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2010. Misato Kamada's Gene Metallica-Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai Re : Acta- manga ran in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Gene magazine from 2013 to 2014. The novels also inspired an image CD and a drama CD in 2010.

The novel series' anime adaptation premiered in October 2013. Funimation describes the anime:

Raishin Akabane and his beautiful companion Yaya enroll at Walpurgis Royal Academy to study Machinart: a dangerous blend of magic and technology.​ Raishin is a puppeteer capable of using magic to power up Yaya,​ his automaton,​ for ruthless battles no mere human could survive.​

In the wrong hands,​ Yaya is a deadly weapon,​ but the honorable Raishin,​ despite his mysterious quest for vengeance,​ takes no pleasure in killing for sport.​ Instead,​ he joins forces with a harem of gorgeous classmates to unmask those responsible for a rash of heinous human experimentation.​ If new enemies and terrible grades don't spell doom for Raishin,​ he and Yaya might live long enough to conquer the school where magic meets machine!

Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with an English dub in 2015. Crunchyroll began streaming the series this past April.
