It has been decided that Labo Asai’s light novel Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru will get an anime in Fall 2017. The first cast members have been announced: Yoshimasa Hosoya will voice Gaius Levina Sorel and Nobunaga Shimazaki will voice Gigina Ashley-Bufh.
The novels Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru: Dances with the Dragons has 19 volumes so far under Shogakukan’s Gagaga Bunko. Up until volume 13, the illustrator for the novel was Miyagi, and from volume 14 it changed to Zain, who since then is bringing the world of SareRyuu to life.
Jushiki (=spell formulae) is a special ability in this world. They are chemical reactions in weapons that seem like magic. Two people who use this kind of magic are Gaius and Gigina. Gaius is the one who deals with dangerous situations thanks to being quick-witted and Gigina is a beautiful but cruel swordsman. Even though they seem like enemies, they work together well in battle, as if they were one person. It is a dark fantasy story in which both of them fight to survive.
The anime will start airing in October 2017. General director is Hiroshi Nishikiori (Kaiketsu Zorori, A Certain Magical Index) and directing will be Hirokazu Hanai (Chain Chronicle). The series composition will be done by Takayo Ikami (Yurikuma Arashi). Furthermore, Shimazaki and Hosoya will appear on the Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru stage at the Gagaga Bunko Soukan 10-shunen Kinen Event on 23 September 2017. It is a special stage that will tell you about all the things to look forward to in SareRyuu.
