The second and latest promotional video has released for the Madan no Ou to Vanadis anime adaptation of Tsukasa Kawaguchi and Yoshi☆o’s light novel. The first episode itself aired earlier this week. The series features Kaito Ishikawa (Tsumugu Kihara from Nagi no Asukara) as Tigrevurmud Vorn, Haruka Tomatsu (Asuna Yuuki from Sword Art Online) as Eleonora Viltaria and Sumire Uesaka (Sanae Dekomori in Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!) as Titta. It will be animated by Satelight (Log Horizon, Macross Frontier) and directed by Tatsuo Satou (Mouretsu Pirates, Shigofumi).
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
Set in Western Europe during times of war, Eleanor “Ellen” Vertalia, one of the Vanadis of Zhcted, leads the battle into Brune. There are, in fact, seven Vanadis, named for having each received a powerful weapon from the dragon to individually reign over seven territories. The power of the Vanadis invokes dread and fear from their enemies. An earl in the service of the country of Brune, a young archer by the name of Tigre, experienced the Vandis’s power firsthand after being defeated on the battlefield by Ellen. However, Ellen chose to spare his life after witnessing his skills, but in exchange, he is asked to serve her.
The Madan no Ou to Vanadis anime currently airs on Saturday on ATX at 8:00am JST, through the Fall/Autumn 2014 anime season.
