Alderamin on the Sky gets an anime
Another major Dengeki Bunko festival announcement is an anime adaptation of Alderamin on the Sky/ねじ巻き精霊戦記 天鏡のアルデラミン or Nejamaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin.

Though it is not as famous as Reki Kawahara’s Sword Art Online or Accel World, the light novel series by Bokuto Uno (writer), Sanbaosu (Art) and Ryuutetsu (Art) ran quite successfully from 9 June 2012 to the present day with seven volumes already published. The eighth volume is going to be published very soon, on 10 October 2015. Besides this, a drama CD will be published in order to hype up the coming of the anime.

However, Dengeki did not provide any information besides this short announcement, so stay tuned here for more updates about this series. The official synopsis of Alderamin on the Sky:

At war with the adjacent Kioka Republic, the Katjvarna Empire.

In that region, due to certain circumstances, there was a certain youth unwillingly preparing to take the High Grade Military Officer Exam. His name, Ikta. Disliker of war, lazy, admirer of women.

No one predicted that that kind of Ikta would later on become a soldier referred to even as a great commander…

He who survived a world embroiled in war with his superior genius, Ikta. Illustrating his dynamic, dramatic life, a splendid fantasy military history, the curtain is raised at last!”

Cover for light novel volume 1

On a glance,  Alderamin on the Sky looks like a more cerebral story compared to the more famous titles announced in the recent Dengeki Bunko Festival.
