A new preview video and the opening and ending theme song performers have been revealed for Black Summoner (known in Japan as Kuro no Shoukanshi), an upcoming TV anime based on the fantasy light novel series written by Mayoi Doufu and illustrated by Kurogin about an amnesiac young adventurer who discovers within himself a dark thirst for battle.
The opening theme, entitled "Dounchuu DEAD END", is performed by retbear (unknown Vo:10fu). The ending theme, entitled "Wherever", is performed by Minori Suzuki.
The original Black Summoner novels are published in Japan by Overlap under their Overlap Bunko imprint, and an English language version is also available from J-Novel Club, who describe the story of Black Summoner as follows:
Waking up in a strange new place with no memory of his past life, Kelvin learns that he’s bartered away those very memories in exchange for powerful new abilities during his recent transmigration. Heading out into a whole new world as a Summoner — with his first Follower being the very goddess who brought him over! — Kelvin begins his new life as an adventurer, and it isn’t long before he discovers his hidden disposition as a battle junkie. From the Black Knight of the Ancient Castle of Evil Spirits to the demon within the Hidden Cave of the Sage, he revels in the fight against one formidable foe after another. Join this OP adventurer in an exhilarating and epic saga as he and his allies carve their way into the annals of history!
The Black Summoner TV anime is directed by Yoshimasa Hiraike and features animation production by Satelight. The series will broadcast in Japan on TOKYO MX and other stations beginning on July 09, 2022.
