Nozomi Kawano is designing the characters, and Masato Koda (KonoSuba – God's blessing on this wonderful world!!, Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova) is composing the music.
As previously announced, Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, Persona 4: The Animation, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero) is directing the anime at Lerche, while Daisei Fukuoka (Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Future Arc, Yuki Yuna is A Hero Season 2) is credited as series director. Makoto Uezu (Humanity Has Declined, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero, Scum's Wish) is in charge of the series scripts.
The story follows Seth, a boy who seeks to become a great magician, and a group of witches who seek to travel to the Radiant. Radiant is a mythical land that spawns monsters called "Néméses" which fall to the world from the sky. While traveling, they are also hunted by The Inquisition.
The anime will air on the NHK's ETV channel in October.
Valente launched the comic in 2013, and Asukashinsha began publishing the comic in Japan in 2015 as part of its Euromanga Collection imprint. The comic's eighth volume shipped in France in December, while the seventh volume also shipped in Japan in December.
