Sony Develops Casting Assistant Device Prop from "The Irregular at Magic High School"
In anticipation of the release of the theatrical anime film for The Irregular at Magic High School, Sony is teaming up with the “Laboratory of magicraft” to develop a device which they claim can measure and visualize the Psion energy inherent in humans, i.e. a cosplay prop based on the Casting Assistant Devices from the light novel series and TV anime.
Details on the project are currently scarce, although the initial sketches seem to indicate that the the final product will replicate the appearance and action of the Silver Horn CAD wielded by series protagonist Tatsuya Shiba. An official teaser website has also been published.
More information will be made available during presentations that will be staged on March 25 and 26, 2017, at the AnimeJapan 2017 convention, which is held at the Tokyo Big Sight venue in Koto Ward, Tokyo, Japan. The presentations will be hosted by the characters of Tatsuya Shiba (voided by Yuichi Nakamura) and Miyuka Shiba (voiced by Saori Hayami).
The Irregular at Magic High School: The Girl Who Calls the Stars theatrical anime film is directed by Risako Yoshida and features animation by 8-bit. The film hits theaters in Japan on June 06, 2017.
