Wistoria: Wand and Sword Releases New Trailer

The highly anticipated anime adaptation of Wistoria: Wand and Sword by Fujuino Omori (author of Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon) released a new trailer today. The promotional video also teases a bit of the OP for the anime adaptation. PENGUIN RESEARCH, known for creating the OP and ED themes for Magi: Sinbad no Bouken, Durarara!!, ReLIFE, and Zoids Wilds are behind the OP for the Wistoria: Wand and Sword anime adaption. When asked about the OP and Wistoria: Wand and Sword, PENGUIN RESEARCH shared, “When we began creating the song, we first asked ourselves, what does Will think about the word bravery and how do we feel about bravery? We came to the conclusion that bravery comes from a place of determination and fear, and those things exist side by side like light and shadow. It was truly an honor to be involved in such an amazing production.”

Wistoria: Wand and Sword is a magic-school fantasy series following the story of Will, a young boy driven by a childhood promise to become a proper and powerful mage. He enrolls at Regarden Magical Academy to achieve that end. However, despite how predominant magic is in this world (which is a different universe than the aforementioned Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon) and how strong his promise to become Magia Vende is, Will is unable to use magic at all. Instead of a staff, Will takes up a sword and fights his way to the top. Wistoria: Wand and Sword debuts in Japan on Sunday, July 7th with worldwide distribution scheduled to be released at a later date.

The confirmed cast for Wistoria: Wand and Sword anime includes:

  • Will Serfort: Kohei Amasaki
  • Elfaria Albis Serfort: Akira Sekine
  • Colette Loire: Satomi Amano
  • Sion Ulster: Masaaki Mizunaka
  • Julius Reinberg: Tetsuya Kakihara
  • Lihanna Owenzaus: Lynn
  • Wignall Lindorr: Kengo Kawanishi
  • Kiki: Aoi Inase
  • Workner Norgram: Tomokazu Seki
  • Edward Serfence: Koji Yusa

Bandai Namco Pictures and Actas are collaborating on the anime’s production. Tatsuya Yoshihara, action director of Chainsaw Man, is directing the series. Sayo Ono is the character designer as well as the chief animation director. Yuki Hayashi is in charge of the series music. Miho Karasawa (known as “TRUE”) created the ED for the anime adaption, noting “My song is a bittersweet love song, embodying Elfaria’s feelings for Will despite being unable to see him. I hope anyone who has experienced a bittersweet love will resonate with the song and enjoy it, as well as the anime!”

As part of the announcement, Crunchyroll also announced its upcoming panel at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, California, titled THAT TIME THERE WAS A LOT OF ISEKAI ANIME ON CRUNCHYROLL and taking place on Thursday at 1:00 PM PT on the Crunchyroll Stage.
