Fantasy Manga ‘Reign of the Seven Spellblades’ To Get Anime Adaption


‘Nanatsu no Maken ga Shihai Suru’ is a fantasy light novel series written by Bokuto Uno, illustrated by Ruria Miyuki, and published through ASCII Media Works. It was picked up by Yen Press for a North American release under the title ‘Reign of the Seven Spellblades’ and it would later transition into a manga from Kadokawa Shoten illustrated by Sakae Esuno.

According to Crunchyroll, an anime adaption was announced during the Dengeki Bunko Winter Festival event. There have been no details regarding the staff, cast, or music as of yet.


The announcement was accompanied by a promotional image.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows,

“In the world of magic, there exist deadly irreversible techniques commonly known as spellblades. These sparse and elusive spells, along with their casters, are shrouded in mystery and only their absolute lethality is known to the masses.


Every year, the spring blossom signifies a new intake of students to the prestigious magic school Kimberly. With reactions of awe and bewilderment, a ceremonious parade complete with magical beasts welcomes the newcomers to the institution. Among them is the mysterious Oliver Horn, whose indifference changes to fascination as he notices a peculiar figure—a girl wearing strange attire equipped with a Japanese sword.

From the entrance ceremony onward, Oliver realizes that not all is as it seems at Kimberly, as the emergence of labyrinths, monsters, and other threats endanger the new student body. Nanatsu no Maken ga Shihai suru explores the intertwined fates of two warriors as they uncover the dark truths that lurk within the walls of the academy.”

Currently, the light novel series has eight volumes with the manga trailing behind with five volumes via Monthly Shōnen Ace.

Uno’s previous series ‘Alderamin on the Sky’ was also adapted into an anime that ran for one season of thirteen episodes.
