Fantasy light novel adaptation coming in spring
Coming in spring 2017, White Fox (Re:ZERO) will be adapting Kakeru Kobashiri and Yoshinori Shizuma's Dengeki fantasy light novel series Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho. A first preview offers a sense of its world and look at its cast: an unnamed half-beast mercenary looking to regain his human form (narrator of the books), "Zero," a witch who emerges from her seclusion to recover a stolen grimoire and Albus (think Latin for "white" rather than Harry Potter), a descendant of witches trying to end their persecution.
Animator and episode director Tetsuo Hirakawa steps up to helm the production with Ryosuke Kimiya and Daisuke Mataga.
mercenary - Tsuyoshi Koyama
Zero - Yumiri Hanamori (Anne-Happy) as the titular heroine
Albus - Yo Taichi (Prison School's Anzu)
