During the Dengeki Bunko 30th anniversary livestream event on Sunday, an exciting new teaser promotional video and a captivating second teaser visual were unveiled for the upcoming television anime adaptation of Kuji Furumiya’s renowned light novel series, Unnamed Memory.
Kazuya Miura, known for his work on “Trapped in a Dating Sim: The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs” and “Kan Colle Season 2: Let’s Meet at Sea,” takes the helm as the director for the anime at ENGI.
Assisting him is Deko Akao, who has previously worked on popular series such as “Komi Can’t Communicate,” “Noragami,” and “The Case Study of Vanitas,” serving as the series composer. Chika Nōmi, known for her work on “Kan Colle Season 2: Let’s Meet at Sea” and “Kemono Michi: Rise Up,” will be adapting the original character designs by chibi into an animated format. The music for the series will be composed by Akito Matsuda, whose notable works include “Sound! Euphonium” and “Liz and the Blue Bird.” Yoshiki Nakajima and Atsumi Tanezaki will take on the lead roles, with Nakajima portraying Oscar and Tanezaki as Tinasha.
Yen Press has acquired the rights to release both the light novel series and its manga adaptation in English. The story revolves around the enigmatic witches, ancient mages wielding unimaginable power capable of bringing about catastrophic events.
Oscar, the crown prince of the formidable kingdom of Farsas, bears a curse since childhood, rendering him unable to father an heir. Determined to break the curse, he embarks on a quest to find Tinasha, the continent’s most powerful witch. Legends speak of her granting the wishes of those who conquer her tower. Upon reaching the summit, Oscar surprises Tinasha by making an unexpected request—asking her to become his bride.
Furumiya, the author of “A Pale Moon Reverie” and “Babel,” began publishing the series as web novels on the platform “Shōsetsuka ni Narō” in September 2012. Kadokawa recognized its popularity and officially released the novels in print in January 2019, featuring illustrations by chibi. The novels quickly garnered acclaim, securing the top spot in Takarajimasha’s prestigious Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! (This Light Novel Is Amazing!) guidebook in 2020.
Naoki Koshimizu took up the task of adapting the novels into a manga, which debuted in Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine in September 2020.
