The Unnamed Memory light novel series by Kuji Furumiya will have a television anime adaptation in 2023, according to a Kadokawa announcement on Tuesday.
Naoki Koshimizu, a book illustrator and chibi and manga artist, contributed celebration pictures, according to Kadokawa.
The anime at ENGI is being directed by Kazuya Miura (Kan Colle Season 2: Let’s Meet at Sea, Trapped in a Dating Sim: The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs).
The series is being composed by Deko Akao (Komi Can’t Communicate, Noragami, The Case Study of Vanitas), while the animation of the original chibi character designs is being handled by Chika Nmi (Kan Colle Season 2: Let’s Meet at Sea, Kemono Michi: Rise Up).
The soundtrack was written by Akito Matsuda (Sound! Euphonium, Liz and the Blue Bird).
Atsumi Tanezaki and Yoshiki Nakajima will play Tinasha and Oscar, respectively, in the anime.
Both the English-language editions of the light novel series and its manga adaptation are being published by Yen Press.
Witches are ancient magicians who have power great enough to bring about calamity. The great kingdom of Farsas’ crown prince Oscar was cursed as a child to never have an heir. He searches for Tinasha, the most powerful witch in the continent, in the hopes of breaking the curse. He makes his way to her tower since legend has it that anyone who makes it to the top will have their wish fulfilled. However, after he reaches the top, he asks Tinasha to become his wife.
On the “Shsetsuka ni Nar” website, Furumiya started serializing the books in September 2012. In January 2019, Kadokawa released the novels in print with chibi drawings.
According to Takarajimasha’s Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! (This Light Novel Is Amazing!) handbook, the books came in first place for the year 2020.
In the September 2020 issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine, Naoki Koshimizu debuted the manga adaptation of the books.
