It’s certainly a good time to be a fan of A Certain Magical Index and its spinoffs.
The latest anime adaptation of those spinoffs, A Certain Scientific Accelerator, was announced back in October of last year. Now we finally know when it’s set to beam onto our screens: July 12.
The series is animated at J.C. Staff, and directed by Nobuharu Kamanaka (Big Order). It’s got series composition by Kenji Sugihara (Clockwork Planet) and character designs by Yohei Yaegashi (Aki no Kanade).
Accelerator is an ongoing manga written by franchise creator Kazuma Kamachi. It’s been running since 2013, and is released in English by Seven Seas. Here’s how they describe it:
Welcome to a world where mysticism and science collide, and supernatural powers are derived from either science or religion. At the heart of this world is Academy City, an advanced metropolis whose population is comprised mostly of students. The majority of students are enrolled in the city’s “Power Curriculum Program,” where they must learn to master their latent psychic powers.
