Thanks to its abundance of Wisdom, She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man has rolled a successful check and provided us with a bundle of insightful new details about the upcoming fantasy series!
First up is a new key visual and promo video, giving us another peek at the world of Arch Earth Online and its inhabitants:
And speaking of inhabitants, we’ve also received some additional character art!
The story follows avid VRMMORPG player Sakimori Kagami, who redesigns his sagely character danblf as a young girl one night on a whim. So when he suddenly wakes up in the world of Arch Earth Online, he—or rather she—is forced to assume the identity of Mira, and convince the world that she is the pupil of “his past self” that disappeared 30 years prior.
Taking on the role of a young man as an old man as a young girl is Nichika Omori (Darwin’s Game), accompanied by Ayumu Murase (Haikyu!!) as Solomon, king of the Arkite kingdom, and Hinata Minami (Ranking of Kings) as Luminaria, a powerful sorcerer and one of the Nine Wise Men of Arkite.
Keitaro Motonaga (Date A Live) is heading production at studio A-CAT, with series composition by Takamitsu Kouno (Absolute Duo), character designs by Kumi Horii (Infinite Stratos 2) and music by Go Sakabe (Date A Live).
