Radiant was one of last year’s most underrated anime, and it’s continuing into a second season this year! And now, NHK has revealed new details for the anime, and that includes the new key visual:
NHK also announced that the anime will premiere on 2nd October at 7:25 p.m. JST via NHK E-TV. And much like the first season, it will also have a 21-episode run.
Here’s how Viz Media describes the story:
“Seth is an aspiring wizard living in a pastoral village under the watchful eye of his mentor. Like all wizards, he is an “infected”—one of the few people that has survived contact with a Nemesis, creatures that fall from the sky and contaminate all they touch. His encounter gave him powers and led him to choose a path that seemed to be perfect—to become someone who hunts and fights the Nemesis. But Seth longs for a quest that goes beyond the simple hunt for monsters. He wants to find the place they come from, Radiant, and destroy it. Along with other wizards, he travels the world in search of Radiant, under the sinister eye of the Inquisition… ”
Lerche animated the first season, with Angel Beats!’s Seiji Kishi at the helm as director. It adapts Tony Valente’s French comic Radiant.
