The key visual and further details on the story of the upcoming original anime Shūmatsu no Izetta (Izetta of the End) has been posted on its official website on Friday. In addition, the character designs for the anime have been unveiled too on the same day.
The introduction to the story of Shūmatsu no Izetta (Izetta of the End) reads as follows:
If I am promised to the princess, then I will fight for her sake.
In 1939 C.E., the imperialist nation of Germania invaded a neighboring country. All at once, that war spread throughout Europe, and the era was dragged into a spiral of a great war.
Then, in 1940, Germania’s attack turned towards the Principality of Elystadt, a small Alps country abundant with beautiful water and greenery.
A fictional map of Europe was also included in the introduction page of the anime.
The following are the main characters of the anime:
Izetta, the descendant of a family of witches. She can cast a spell on anything she touches and manipulate it at will. Since she was young, she and her grandmother lived their lives on the road, travelling between European countries in order to hide the power.
Fine, the sole daughter and heir to Rudolf III, ruler of the Principality of Elystadt. From a young age she has been adored for her wisdom and kind heart by not only her retainers, but by all the citizens. Since her father is sick, she prepares for Germania’s invasion in his stead.
Shūmatsu no Izetta anime will be broadcast on AT-X, Tokyo MX and other channels in October 2016. The anime also receives a German title, Izetta, Die Letzte Hexe (Izetta, The Last Witch).
