She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man has returned to impart us with more wisdom about the upcoming fantasy series! The anime’s fourth visual, depicting Mira and “her” past identity Danblf, was released along with an English-subbed trailer, additional cast and a January 11 premiere date!
The new trailer gives us a preview of the ending theme, “Ambitious” by Erabareshi (My First Girlfriend is a Gal), and introduces the new voices of Yui Horie (My Senpai is Annoying), Ayane Sakura (The Quintessential Quintuplets) and Isao Sasaki (Gatchaman) as we traverse the world of Arkite.
The story follows avid VRMMO-RPG 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 Ark 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).
