Yū Shimizu’s fantasy of boy who accidentally becomes 1st known male to make contract with a spirit

The official Twitter account for the Comic Alive magazine’s editors announced on Sunday that anime adaptations for five of the MG Bunko J light novel titles have been green-lit, including Yū Shimizu’s Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance (Spirit Elementalist’s Blade Dance). The announcement was first made at Media Factory’s Summer School Festival 2013 event.

In the “elemental fantasy” of Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance, only a pure girl may enter into a spirit contract. At Areishia Spirit Academy, the daughters of nobility are assembled to take elite classes and become spirit elementalists. A boy named Kamito happened to be peeping on a student named Claire while she was taking a bath, and he accidentally makes a contract with a spirit instead of Claire. Now, Kamito has become something once thought impossible in this world — a male spirit elementalist.

Shimizu launched the light novel series in 2010 with art by Hanpen Sakura, and Media Factory published the 11th volume this month. Artist Issei Hyōju (MM!) has been drawing the manga adaptation in Media Factory’s Monthly Comic Alive magazine since last year.

Sorry I posted in the wrong forum before, but I do want to see this series dubbed into English when it gets a home video release. To make sure of this, can a lot of people watch the episodes to get enough viewership to warrant a dub?

Video anime shorts tied to short stories that the original novelist is writing for the volumes

Online retailer Amazon is listing the six monthly Blu-ray/DVD volumes for the Bladedance of Elementalers anime between October 8, 2014 and March 4, 2015. Each one includes a mini original video anime (OVA).

Each volume also includes two television episodes, audio commentaries, and a special picture label. Some of the volumes also include video bonuses such as the clean opening and ending anime sequences and promotional videos. The limited first pressing of each volume adds special Digipack packaging illustrated by character designer Maki Fujii, a special clear case, the short story by Shimizu, a 24-page special booklet, a special CD, and four eyecatch cards. The limited edition of the first volume will also bundle a TRPG rulebook supervised by Shimizu and an early ticket application form for an event.

Hey Slowhand,

Can you try to recommend that the anime Be dubbed when it is released on DVD and Blu-Ray? A lot of people should view the anime.

It’s way too early for that. I don’t really have any say in the matter.

Dubs are usually based on sales of streaming and how popular the anime is across the board. If you really want/need for this to be dubbed, you need to recommend it to all your friends and make sure that’s its being watched as much as possible.

Also, if it isn’t dubbed right away, sales of the subtitled version play a part in getting the anime a second look.

This year, only a minority of titles got dubbed, and I don’t know why? I want to see more dubs. I watch mostly dubs, otherwise I mute the audio.

I wish I can talk to someone who makes the decisions on dubs. I wish everyone would have a say, maybe via surveys.
