    This new, value-priced DVD set will offer the remaining 12 episodes of Rental Magica in both “broadcast order,” as seen on Japanese television (and the Japanese DVD release), and “chronological order,” according to the timeline presented in the novels that served as the series’ inspiration.

    “A fun series that looks good and is filled with interesting characters”
    – Chris Beveridge, The Fandom Post

    A supernatural action-adventure, Rental Magica is set in a world where magical organizations – staffed by specialists wielding both Eastern and Western disciplines – vie for work, prestige and power.

    Written by Makoto Sanda and illustrated by pako, the Rental Magica novel series currently spans more than 21 volumes and was named “Best Action Story” by Japanese fans as part of the 2007 Light Novel Awards. It debuted in 2004, and it was serialized in Kadokawa Shoten’s magazine The Sneaker, alongside the novels that inspired The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Trinity Blood anime series. Manga interpretations of Rental Magica also appeared in the shoujo (girls’) anthology Asuka and the shounen (boys’) anthology Comp Ace.

    Rental Magica’s anime adaptation features direction by Itsuro Kawasaki (Sengoku Basara, The Legend of the Legendary Heroes), series composition by Mamiko Ikeda (Emma: A Victorian Romance, Maid Sama!), animation character design by Minako Shiba (Black Butler, .hack//SIGN), and animation production by ZEXCS (Our Home’s Fox Diety, Chrome Shelled Regios).

    Its vocal cast is led by Jun Fukuyama (“Lelouch” in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, “Lawrence” in Spice and Wolf, and “Sota” in Wagnaria!!), Kana Ueda (“Yumi” in Maria Watches Over Us, “Rin” in Fate/stay night, “Mikan” in Gakuen Alice), Mikako Takahashi (“Amy” in Burst Angel, “Ayumi Yamada” in Honey and Clover), and Junichi Suwabe (“Archer” in Fate/stay night, “Greed” in Fullmetal Alchemist, “Takashi” in Highschool of the Dead).
