Light Novel 'Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai' Receives Anime Adaptation

An anime adaptation of the light novel Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai has been announced. The announcement was made on Fujimi Shobo on Tuesday.

The light novel by Touki Yanagimi is set in a fantasy world where individuals with magic powers are being actively wiped out. Takeru Kusanagi is one such "Inquisitor of Heretics" (people who are tasked with eliminating magic-users) who is a student of the "AntiMagic Academy." As he is unable to use guns, he is assigned to the 35th Test platoon, a platoon of outcasts and misfits. Things change when Ouka Ootori, an highly qualified pistol master, joins the platoon.

The light novel with art by Kippu was launched in 2012 and has been adapted into a manga by Sutarou Hanao.
