posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the anime film adaptation of Kenji Saitō and Akinari Nao's Trinity Seven manga announced on Tuesday that a second anime film has been green-lit. Shinpei Tomooka, the character designer and chief animation director for the 2014 television anime and the 2017 Trinity Seven: Eternal Library & Alchemic Girl anime film, drew a visual to commemorate the news:
Saito expressed his disbelief that a second film is being made, while Nao thanked the fans for supporting all of Trinity Seven thus far.
Yen Press is publishing the manga in English, and it describes the story:
Arata Kasuga transfers to the Royal Biblia Academy to solve the mystery of the destruction that is ravaging the world and that - more importantly - has stolen his cousin Hijiri from him. It's a tough road that lies ahead of Arata, but nothing's impossible when you have seven beautiful girls - each a master of her own magical art - at your side!
Saito and Nao launched the manga in Monthly Dragon Age magazine in 2011. Kadokawa published the manga's 18th compiled book volume on February 9, and will publish the 19th volume on July 9. The manga has more than 3 million copies in print. The manga has inspired spinoff manga, including Trinity Seven: Liese Chronicle and Trinity Seven: Levi Ninden. Yen Press is publishing the manga in English, and it published the manga's 13th compiled book volume on May 22.
The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in October 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks released the series with an English dub on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in August 2016.
Crunchyroll also began streaming the Trinity Seven: Eternal Library & Alchemic Girl film in March 2017. The film opened in Japan in February 2017.
The July issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age magazine revealed on June 9 that Kenji Saitō and Akinari Nao's Trinity Seven manga will have a "super important announcement" in the magazine's next issue on July 9. The manga will also have a color opening page in the issue, and will feature on the front cover.
