It looks like this project is shining brightly tonight!
Last night, the official Radiant anime website opened its doors. The site features a new key visual, as well as several new cast and crew members. We break the details down below.
The image features the show’s main characters, arranged in a series of vertical “blinds.”
The series will star the following:
- Seth: Yumiri Hanamori
- Alma: Romi Park
- Doc: Shintarou Oohata
- Mélie: Aoi Yūki
Two new cast members were confirmed for the project:
- Character Designer: Nozomi Kawano
- Music: MasatoKōda
Radiant will air in October on NHK’s Educational channel. The show is slated to run for 21 episodes.
The title was first announced in French regions on January 24.
Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, Assassination Classroom) will helm the project at Lerche, with Makoto Uezu (Assassination Classroom Season 2, KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) taking charge of series composition. Daiki Fukuoka (Yuki Yuna is A Hero Season 2, Danganronpa 3) is credited as Series Director.
Masato Koda will compose the show’s soundtrack.
Ankama began publishing Tony Valente’s Radiant comic in July 2013. To date, eight volumes have been released, with the most recent shipping to stores in December 2017.
Comics resource Comic Vine describes the title as:
In a world where the Némesis menaces, Seth, a young guy using magic, have the goal to destroy the source of the problem. On his path, he will find companions and one of them will train him.
