French manga 'Radiant' is apparently getting an anime adaptation to air on NHK.

Plot:

Seth is an aspiring sorcerer from the Pompo Hills area. Like all wizards, he is an "infected": one of the few living beings who survived the contact of the Nemesis, these creatures fallen from the sky that contaminate and decimate all those they touch. His apparent immunity made him choose a path which seemed to him to be all the more appropriate: to become a Hunter and to fight the Nemesis. But more than that, Seth wants to engage in a quest that goes beyond the simple hunt for monsters ... He wants to find the Radiant, their presumed cradle. Surrounded by a faction of sorcerers, he traveled the world in search of the Ra

Oh boy, if they keep the artstyle that'd be amazing! Maybe the popularity of little witch academia has inspired other studios to come out with some good fantasy as well!

"French manga".

Absolutely love that we're seeing more and more anime/manga style works being created throughout the world. Pretty much guarantees it's gonna be pretty different from what we're used to, as well. A good thing, considering how heavily tropes are leaned on anymore.

I think it's very interesting that they're doing a french manga. It kind of reminds me of Heroman.

I tried the first volume, but it was mainly just introducing the characters. Hard to get a sense of what the story will be like once it gets underway, although it seems very similar to most shounen.

I thought the art was good, but that would not necessarily transfer to the anime beyond character design.
