The official synopsis:

The story is set in the world of people with magical powers on the edge of ruin. The top of the military power has moved from swords to magic, then to guns. AntiMagic Academy was founded to train inquisitioners to crack down on the remaining threat of the magical powers. The protagonist Takeru Kusanagi is a student of the academy and belongs to the 35th test platoon, a scratch team of poor students. While having no talent for guns, he has studied to be an inquisitioner with his only merit, kenjyutsu (swordsmanship). One day, Ouka Ohtori, a super elite student who has the license to witch-hunt, joins his platoon. She is nicknamed “Calamity,” since she actually shot a criminal to death in the past. As the leader of the platoon, Takeru starts working with her on a mission to retrieve Magical Heritage. ”

The series is scheduled for 7 October 2015 airing.
