Type-Moon’s Mahoutsukai no Yoru: Witch on the Holy Night visual novel is getting an anime movie adaptation with Ufotable as the animation production company. A teaser trailer has been released.

Released in 2012, the Mahoutsukai no Yoru visual novel, or Mahoyo, is written by Fate/Stay Night’s Kinoko Nasu. It is the latest Type-Moon visual novel to receive an anime, following Fate/Stay Night and Tsukihime. The female protagonist of Mahoutsukai no Yoru, Aoko Aozaki, has appeared in Tsukihime and other Type-Moon-related titles such as the Carnival Phantasm anime parody and the Fate/EXTRA video game.

Tech Gian Magazine (as translated by Akihabara Channel, via VNDB) describes the story as:

“Near the end of the Showa Era. (Late 1980s)

In the old mansion rumored that a witch lives, Aoko Aozaki who just started learning sorcery and her teacher, a young mage Alice Kuonji, lived together.

But as if he was guided by an invisible string of fate, a young boy called Soujuurou Shizuki joins them and a strange communal life begins…”

“Late 1980s. The golden age full of brightness and spirits. The boy who came to the urban city passes by the two witches who live in the present”

“The boy lived a really normal life

She lived with pride and confidence

The girl lived hidden as if she’s asleep”

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
