The summer 2023 anime adaptation of the Saint Cecilia and Pastor Lawrence property is getting its home video releases handled by Aniplex Japan. The twelve-episode series is getting a three-volume release on DVD and Blu-ray priced at 10,000 yen and 12,000 yen respectively. Each set is listed as a limited edition as well and you can find the full schedule and details below.

While we had a text-covered preview of the first volume artwork previously, we now finally have a look at it in clean form below while we await the same for the second volume.

The series was directed by Sumie Noro and based on the series composition by Yuka Yamada. Hiromi Nakagawa is working on the character designs with Doga Kobo handling the animation production.

The Japanese cast includes Hime Sawada plays Cecilia, Kaito Ishikawa plays Lawrence, Haruki Ishiya as Abel, Kanna Nakamura as Hazelita, Haruka Tomatsu as Mel, Mai Nakahara as Rebecca, Makoto Koichi as Eric, Tomoaki Maeo as Giselbert, and Reina Ueda as Frederica.

The series from Hazano Kazutake began in 2017 as serialized in Shonen Magazine R and has ten volumes released as of the announcement. Kodansha Comics releases it in English digitally.

Plot Concept: Saint Cecilia is beloved by the townspeople—not only is she elegant and composed, she benevolently shares her wisdom with all who seek it. That is, until the last person has left—at which point she becomes totally hopeless! Only Pastor Lawrence is keeping the Saint put together enough to do her duties…and though she may test him, it’s all in a day’s work!
