The official website for the television anime of Seiichi Takayama and Yukisan's The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar (Hyakuren no Haō to Seiyaku no Valkyria) light novel series revealed a new visual and the anime's July 7 premiere on Friday.
The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX and BS11 on July 7 at 1:30 a.m. (effectively July 8 morning).
The anime's cast includes:
Rie Suegara as Felicia
Arisa Date as Sigrun
Maki Kawase as Ingrid
Kanon Takao as Linnea
Aya Uchida as Mitsuki
In addition, Aoi Yūki will play the character Albertina, while Ayana Taketatsu will play Christina. Yurie Funato was originally cast to play Linnea, but she left her agency earlier this month and could no longer voice the character. The staff then cast Kanon Takao later.
J-Novel Club licensed the novels and is publishing them digitally. The publisher describes the story:
Some urban legends are best left untested! Yuuto Suoh gets more than he bargained for when he joins his childhood friend Mitsuki Shimoya in testing out an urban legend. When he uses his phone to take a picture of himself with the local shrine's divine mirror, he is whisked off into another world – one heavily steeped in the lore of the old Norse myths. Using his knowledge gained from school and from his solar-powered smartphone, he has the chance to bring the Wolf Clan, the same people who cared for him, to prominence, all while earning the adoration of a group of magic-wielding warrior maidens known as the Einherjar.
Kōsuke Kobayashi (Idol Time PriPara, Alice or Alice) is directing the anime at EMT Squared. Natsuko Takahashi (ATASHIn'CHI, Romeo × Juliet, Love Tyrant) is in charge of the series scripts. Mariko Ito (Log Horizon, ViVid Strike!, Love Tyrant) is adapting the character designs for animation, and is also credited as chief animation director alongside Miyako Yatsu (Say "I love you.", Flowers of Evil, DIVE!!).
Aya Uchida, who plays Mitsuki in the anime, will perform the anime's opening theme song, and petit milady will perform the ending theme song.
Hobby Japan began publishing printed novels for the series in August 2013. The company published the 15th novel volume on March 30. Chany is drawing a manga adaptation on Hobby Japan's website, and the company shipped the third compiled volume last June.
