Management of Novice Alchemist, a TV anime adaptation based on the fantasy light novel series written by Mizuho Itsuki and illustrated by Fuumi, is currently broadcasting in Japan, and now the lead voice actor for the series has lent her talents to a thirty second TV spot advertising the third volume of the manga adaptation of the series, which features artwork by kirero.
The video (below) features voice actor Kanon Takao as Sarasa Feed, a novice alchemist who receives a broken down store front in a remote town as a graduation gift. The original Management of Novice Alchemist light novels are published in Japan by Fujimi Shobo under their Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint, while the manga adaptation is serialized in Kill Time Communication’s Comic Valkyrie manga magazine.
The Management of Novice Alchemist TV anime is directed by Hiroshi Ikehata and features animation production by ENGI. The series is currently broadcasting in Japan on AT-X, TOKYO MX, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, and BS NTV, and it is also available via streaming on HIDIVE in the United States. HIDIVE describes the story of the series as follows:
Sarasa was gifted a house to use as an alchemy storefront, but it’s smackdab in the middle of nowhere! With customers to find and supplies to gather, Sarasa has her work cut out for her as she transmutes this bad location into a golden opportunity.
