In addition, it is confirmed that 15-year-old Kanon Takao (Yu Hiraoka in Ani Tore! EX) is newly cast

character. I'll do my best!"

Some urban legends are best left untested!
Yuuto Suoh gets more than he bargained for when he joins his childhood friend Mitsuki Shimoya in
testing out an urban legend. When he uses his phone to take a picture of himself with the local
shrine’s divine mirror, he is whisked off into another world –one heavily steeped in the lore of the
old Norse myths. Using his knowledge gained from school and from his solar-powered smartphone,
he has the chance to bring the Wolf Clan, the same people who cared for him, to prominence, all
while earning the adoration of a group of magic-wielding warrior maidens known as the Einherjar.
