The path for the anime adaptation of Testament of Sister New Devil continues to be unusual as the project has two seasons under its belt but no home video release in North America yet. While Madman Entertainment has picked up the Australian rights, the curiosity now extends further as German distributor Peppermint Anime has picked up the property. Their plans are basic at this point but they have revealed that they intend to bring it out on both DVD and Blu-ray this summer.
We’re laying odds that this is a property that Crunchyroll may have home video rights to in North America, hence it being unavailable through other distributors as it seems like a very easy pickup of action and fanservice that still sells well to audiences here.
This series is the second anime adaptation of one of Uesu’s properties as we previously saw Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero get adapted, which was streamed and licensed in North America by FUNimation. The anime adaptation was set up at Production IMS where was directed by Hisashi Saito based on scripts by Takao Yoshioka and character designs by Yoshihiro Watanabe.
The cast includes Yuichi Nakamura as Basara Toujou, Ayaka Asai as Mio Naruse, Sarah Emi Bridcutt as Yuki Nonaka, Kaori Fukuhara as Maria Naruse, Yuu Asakawa as Chisato Hasegawa, Keiji Fujiwara as Jin Toujou, Tomokazu Sugita as Takigawa Yahiro, Iori Nomizu as Kurumi Nonaka, Go Inoue as Takashi Hayase, Daisuke Hirakawa as Kyoichi Shiba, Seiko Yoshida as Zest and Kenjiro Tsuda as Mamoru Sakazaki.
The manga is adapted from the light novels of the same name that come from writer Tetsuo Uesu. The light novel series began in 2012 and has nine volumes out so far in Japan. The property has two manga series out there and Seven Seas has picked up the rights to the main one by Kashiwa Miyako, which began in the spring of 2013 and has two volumes released to date as it’s been serialized in Shonen Ace.
Plot concept: The revolves around Basara Tojo, a first-year high school student who is flustered by a sudden question by his eccentric father, “Hey, didn’t you used to say you wanted a little sister?” Plus, his father announces that he is getting remarried. His father brings over two beautiful step-sisters, but then embarks on an overseas trip. However, the two sisters Mio and Maria Naruse are actually a novice devil and succubus.
