The 19th volume of The Irregular at Magic High School has revealed that the light novel series would be receiving an anime film adaptation. The announcement says that “Tatsuya Shiba will become a legend.”
The Irregular at Magic High School is written by Tsutomu Satō and illustrated by Kana Ishida. It is published by ASCII Media Works under their Dengeki Bunko imprint. It was first published in July 2011 and currently has 19 volumes released. The light novel series is licensed for release in North America by Yen Press.
A 26-episode anime adaptation was produced by Madhouse in 2014. The anime was directed by Manabu Ono. This anime is licensed for release in North America by Aniplex of America.
Aniplex USA describes the story as follows:
Magic–A century has passed since this concept has been recognized as a formal technology instead of the product of the occult or folklore. The season is spring and it is time for a brand new school year. At the National Magic University First Affiliate High School, A.K.A Magic High School, students are divided into two distinct groups according to their academic performances. The “Bloom,” who demonstrate the highest grades and are enrolled in the “First Course,” and the “Weed,” who have poor academic records and are enrolled in the “Second Course.”
This spring, a very peculiar brother and sister enroll as new students. The brother is an underachiever with some deficiencies and enrolls as a “Weed,” while his younger sister is an honor student, who enrolls as a “Bloom.”
The brother, with a somewhat philosophical expression, and the younger sister who holds feelings a little stronger than sibling love for him…
Ever since these two have entered through the gates of this prestigious school, the calm campus was beginning to change…
No other details about the film like a release date have been revealed.
