Kakeru Kobashiri revealed via Twitter on Wednesday that her Mahoutsukai Reimeiki (The Dawn of the Witch) light novel series will receive a television anime adaptation.

Synopsis
The war that raged between the Church and the Witches for five centuries finally ended in peace but a few short years ago. However, nestled in the shadowy places of the world, the embers of that age old conflict still smolder.

Attending the Royal Academy of Magic of the Kingdom of Wenias is a struggling student named Sable, who has no memories of his time before being enrolled. At the command of Headmaster Albus, he left the Kingdom to travel to the southern reaches of the continent, where anti-magic insurgents are still a force to be reckoned with, as part of a special training regimen. Accompanying him are a party of individuals strong in both ability and personality; there's the one known as the Witch of the Dawn, Roux Cristasse, who seeks the forbidden knowledge of primeval magic in the 'Grimoire of Zero,' the genius girl Holtz, as well as the school's sole beast, Kudd.

Just what truth shall they uncover in their journey to the south...? (Source: MU)

Apparently, this is a sequel/spinoff of Grimoire of Zero, which aired in 2017.
Underrated little series. It's nice to see it getting more love.
No wonder those character designs look so similar.

Alright, shall give this one a go when it comes out, Grimoire of Zero is a show that no one talks about anymore.

I can understand why almost all male leads in LN look like everydude, but why do many of them look so much like Kirito in appearance? Is his image the iconic?
