A new animated film Holy night witch (Mahoutsukai no Yoru in the Japanese original) from the same studio that brought us two seasons and a feature film from the popular anime Demon slayer was announced and got a respective trailer.
Based on the PC visual novel of the same title developed by Japanese game company Type-Moon and released in April 2012, the story takes place near the end of the Shōwa era in the late 1980s in a town called Misaki. The main protagonist is high school student Soujuurou Shizuki who has just left the countryside and is new to the modern urban way of life. Things will change forever for Soujuurou when he meets two modern day witches, Aoko Aozaki and Alice Kuonji, who live alone and in secret in a hilltop mansion.
The teaser doesn’t show much of the plot, but it does show two of the main characters, Aoko Aozaki and Alice Kuonji, standing in a field of flowers at night as a peaceful piano melody plays.
The game storyline was created by Kinoko Nasu who collaborated with Hirokazu Koyama to create the character designs and graphics for the game. There have been mentions of a possible sequel but it was never released. However, new Type-Moon projects are expected to be announced when Fate Project New Year’s Eve TV Special 2021 airs on December 31. Therefore, there may still be a possibility that information about a sequel will finally be released.
To celebrate the film’s announcement, Koyama shared an illustration on Twitter.
This won’t be the first time ufotable studio has taken on the animation and production of a Type-Moon game, another notable mention being The garden of sinners (Kara no Kyôkai).
For now, the film adaptation of Holy night witch has no fixed creation date.
