Bandai Namco Filmworks Inc. has released a new promotional video for the long-awaited anime adaptation of “Wistoria: Wand and Sword” today. Created by Fujino Omori, author of the popular light novel “Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?” which currently has more than 17 million copies in circulation, “Wisteria: Wand and Sword” follows the story of Will, a young boy who enrolls in a magic academy with the aim of becoming a full-fledged mage. Driven by a childhood promise to become Magia Vende, Will, despite his best efforts, is unable to use magic at all in a world where it reigns supreme. “Wistoria: Wand and Sword” will make its debut on Sunday, July 7th with worldwide distribution scheduled to be released at a later date.

PENGUIN RESEARCH, known for creating OP and ED themes for titles such as “Magi: Sinbad no Bouken”, “Durarara!!”, “ReLIFE”, and “Zoids Wild” have created the OP for the upcoming anime adaptation, with a portion of the song teased in the new promotional video. When asked about the opening theme PENGUIN RESEARCH shared, “When we began creating the song, we first asked ourselves, what does Will think about the word bravery and how do we feel about bravery? We came to the conclusion that bravery comes from a place of determination and fear, and those things exist side by side like light and shadow. It was truly an honor to be involved in such an amazing production.

Miho Karasawa, also known as “TRUE”, who has worked on music for series like “Violet Evergarden”, “Sound! Euphonium”, and “That time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime”, created the ED for the anime adaptation. “My song is a bittersweet love song, embodying Elfaria’s feelings for Will despite being unable to see him. I hope anyone who has experienced a bittersweet love will resonate with the song and enjoy it, as well as the anime!
