TV anime based on fantasy light novel series debuts in January of 2018
A quartet of characters has joined the cast of Record of Grancrest War, an upcoming TV anime based on the series of fantasy light novels written by Ryo Mizuno (Record of Lodoss War) and illustrated by Miyū about a knight and a sorceress joining forces to try to end the conflict that threatens to tear their world apart.
The new cast members include:
- Yūko Kaida as Margaret Odeus.
- Chika Anzai as Laura Hardley.
- Yumi Uchiyama as Helga Piaroza.
- And Kaede Hondo as Colleen Messala.
The story of Record of Grancrest War is set in a chaos-ravaged world where royal families wielding holy seals are supposed to protect their people from harm. However, the aristocracy is more concerned with waging wars to consolidate their own power than with acting as guardians. Against this backdrop, Theo, a knight, and Siluca, a magician, quest for the emperor's holy seal (the titular "Grancrest") in an effort to bring peace to their war-torn land.
The original Record of Grancrest War novels are published by Fujimi Shobo (a division of Kadokawa) under their Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint. The Record of Grancrest War TV anime is directed by Mamoru Hatakeyama (aka Shinichi Omata) and features animation by A-1 Pictures. Record of Grancrest War will begin its Japanese broadcast in January of 2018.
