In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the franchise
It has been revealed that a new anime adaptation based on the Sorcerous Stabber Orphen is in the works, being the latest adaptation the one that premiered on the last years of the 90´s.
The Light Novel Author, has spoken about this announcement and has shown a big surprise about this new anime adaptation, since it is a work of more than 2 decades old, and he even has described that this work was one made by a “Young Idiot”; although he says that this new anime will have people with actual talent at the helm so everything will turn out fine.
My Anime List describes the story as follows:
“Six years ago at the magic school known as the Tower of Fang, a grave accident happened involving the magical sword Baltanders and the magic user Azali. Unable to control the sword’s power, Azali was transformed into the shape of a great dragon who since that day became known as Bloody August. Krilancelo, a young magician at the Tower who cared greatly for Azali found much to his disgust that the elders of the Tower of Fang were less than willing to save Azali and wanted rather to pretend the accident never happened. Angered by their stand, Krilanceloa swore that he would find a way to return Azali to her former self. Thus he forsook the name Krilancelo and declared himself Orphen, leaving the Tower and his magical studies behind to wander the world... “
