A new cast member and visual are here for the Unnamed Memory anime, which is on the way to adapt the light novels written by Kuji Furumiya and illustrated by chibi this April. The visual, above, is the latest in a series of “scenery visuals,” and the new cast addition is Junichi Yanagita (Kurobe in That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime), who will voice Lanak.

Check out Lanak’s design below.

The anime is being made at ENGI, with Kazuya Miura of Trapped in a Dating Sim: The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs helming the project as director. The person in charge of series composition is Deko Akao, who is known for working on Komi Can’t Communicate and Noragami. The music has been composed by popular composer Akito Matsuda, whose past credits include Sound! Euphonium and Liz and the Blue Bird. Credit for character design goes to Chika Nōmi of Kan Colle Season 2: Let’s Meet at Sea.

The light novels also have a manga adaptation, and Yen Press is publishing both series in English. The publisher gave this description for the story’s plot:

“Witches—the centuries-old mages that command power immense enough to bring catastrophe. Oscar, the crown prince of the powerful kingdom of Farsas, was cursed as a young boy to never sire an heir. Hoping to break the magic, he seeks out Tinasha, the strongest witch on the continent. To meet her, he climbs her tower, as she is said to grant the wish of any who successfully do so. Yet, when he arrives at the top…he requests that Tinasha become his bride!”

The light novels received first place in 2020’s guidebook Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! (translated as This Light Novel Is Amazing!).
