The official Twitter accounts of the Animate stores in Toyama and Kanazawa cities posted photos of Shin Araki’s 12th volume Eiyū Kyōshitsu (Classroom For Heroes) light novel on Thursday. In the photos, it is reported that the novel series has a television anime adaptation. The announcement did not reveal any further details about the project.
The academy fantasy novel series is set in Rosewood Academy, a school that trains future heroes destined to protect humanity. The school only accepts those with the most potential. Arnest Flaming, a girl who prides herself on being at the top of the academy, is tasked with guiding a mysterious but cheerful new student named Blade, who rivals her own powers.
Araki published the first volume under Shueisha’s Dash X Bunko light novel label in January 2015, with illustrations by Haruyuki Morisawa (The Princess and the Pilot , The Pilot’s Love Song , Lagrange – The Flower of Rin-ne ) . Episode 12 will be out on Friday.
Koara Kishida created a manga of the novel in Shueisha with Super magazine in February 2015, and Shueisha shipped the 12 volumes of the manga on November 11.
Araki previously wrote the GJ Club light novel series. This includes nine main episodes from 2010 to 2012, and a high school follow-up that spans eight main episodes from 2012 to 2014. The novels inspired a television anime in 2013. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.
