Anime of Shiki Mizuchi’s fantasy light novel to debut on Saturday
The BS11 channel is airing a commercial for the anime of Shiki Mizuchi’s Dragonar Academy light novels.
Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing Ran’s manga version of Shiki Mizuchi’s original light novel series in North America. The publisher describes the manga:
Learning to ride and tame dragons comes easy to most students at Ansarivan Dragonar Academy—except for first-year student Ash Blake, who is known by his fellow classmates as the “number one problem child.” Poor Ash is the laughing stock at school because, despite his unfashionably large star-shaped brand that marks him as a future dragon master, he has nothing to show for it. His dragon has never appeared.
Until now, that is. One fateful day, Ash’s dragon awakes in full glory, but appears different than any dragon ever seen before—in the form of a beautiful girl! What’s worse, Ash soon discovers that this new dragon has attitude to spare, as she promptly informs him that she is the master, and he, the servant.
Mizuchi launched the story as a light novel series in 2010, and Media Factory published the 14th volume on November 22. Ran has been drawing the manga adaptation in Media Factory’s Monthly Comic Alive magazine since last year.
The anime series will premiere on the AT-X channel on Saturday. (It will then air on BS11 on April 10.)
