The Japanese animation studio Staple Entertainment is developing an anime adaptation of the fantasy comedy ‘Vermeil in Gold,’ a manga written by Kōta Amana and illustrated by Yōko Umezu. The show is written by Tatsuya Takahashi and directed by Takashi Naoya. The anime is set to premiere in July 2022 with Sentai announcing they had picked up the license for a North American release.
“Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to Vermeil in Gold, the anime adaptation of the cheeky fantasy-comedy manga of the same name published in Square Enix’s Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine,” they said on their website. They added that it will stream exclusively to the HiDive streaming service.
Japanese voice actor Yuya Hirose will handle the role of Alto Goldfield with Maaya Uchida voicing Vermeil. The rest of the cast includes Wakana Kuramochi, Yū Okano, Sakura Nakamura, Kana Hanazawa, Kazuyuki Okitsu, Riho Sugiyama, Yurina Amami, and Takehito Koyasu.

TV Tropes describes the premise as follows,
“At a Wizarding School, Alto Goldfield must summon a Familiar or else be held back a grade. Having failed to summon one each try, he finds an old grimoire and tries the summoning spell inside. He ends up summoning a powerful, seductive devil named Vermeil. He asks her to pretend to be human to not scare anybody, as she can conceal her horns and tail, but this causes them to come under scrutiny as humans have never been summoned as familiars before. The two must get through the school year amid several people picking fights and Alto’s jealous childhood friend, Lillian Kudelfelt.”
The music for the anime is composed by Ken Itō and Kenichi Kuroda.
‘Monthly Shōnen Gangan’ publishes the manga series for Square Enix since August 2018 and, as of the writing of this article, has run for six volumes.
