I had thought that ‘The Girl Who Calls the Stars’ film was the last one in The Irregular at Magic High School’s anime adaptation project. So I am especially happy that we will show the activities of Tatsuya, Miyuki, and their friends in the anime once again. Also, I feel lucky that we will be able to introduce Lina (Angelina Kudou Shields), who made a sudden appearance in the film, including her character’s background,” he commented.

To date, thousands of fans all over the globe continue to wait patiently for the come back of the series to the small screen.
“In contrast to the previous ‘Enrollment Arc,’ ‘Nine School Competition Arc,’ and ‘Yokohama Disturbance Arc,” this ‘Visitor Arc’ includes strong occult elements, but I am confident that viewers will enjoy it more than the previous arcs. The highlight of ‘Visitor Arc’ is not big destruction like the one happened in ‘Yokohama Disturbance Arc,’ but the team play supported by friendship (a part of it is love). Please look forward to seeing the power of the young characters’ bond,” Sato added.
Could there be a more satisfying plot development other than seeing a belittled protagonist? Blowing up the mind of everyone as he unleashes his true monstrous abilities? From “One piece,” “Haikyuu,” “Mob Psycho,” “Black Clover,” to “My Hero Academia”. There is a lot of anime series that feature underestimated protagonists who hide their true unparalleled potentials.
