The distributor has picked up the TV series that came out a couple of years ago as well as the new two-part OVA series that kicked off this past weekend and concludes late next month. With them dubbing it in German and taking time to do so since there’s so much content, they’re looking at a late 2016 to early 2017 debut for the property with formats to be determined.

The property is based off the light novels of the same name by Gakuto Mikumo with artwork by Manyako, which began in 2011 and has twelve volumes to date. A manga adaptation began in 2012 summer that’s progressing slowly with artwork be Tate.

The cast includes Yoshimasa Hosoya as Kojō Akatsuki, Rise Taneda as Yukino Himeragi, Asami Seto as Asagi Aiba, Rina Hidaka as Nagisa Akatsuki, Ryota Ohsaka as Motoki Yaze and Hisako Kanemoto as Natsuki Minamiya.

The TV series had Hideyo Yamamoto directing based off of scripts by Hiroyuki Yoshino with character designs by Keiichi Sano. No staffing for this OVA has been revealed yet. Discotek Media has picked up the home video rights for the show in North America.
