The upcoming summer season anime Lapis: ReLIGHTs has debuted a new trailer, and officially announced the premiere date for the series.

The world of Lapis Re:LiGHTs is a world in which idols and witches are one in the same. The series follows a group of these idols as they live their academy life in order to become brilliant idols and use their magic to help people.

Lapis Re:LiGHTs is a planned multimedia franchise by KLab and Kadokawa. A manga began in 2019, and a mobile game has been announced but not released as of yet.

The original scenario and setting were written by Asa no Hajime, and follows magical high school idols. The manga series is being written by Shingo Nagai and illustrated by artist Hirochi. The anime will be directed by Hiroyuki Hata.

You can read the official synopsis from the official website below.

舞台は輝砂、そしてその結晶体である輝石が動力として普及した街・マームケステル。輝砂や輝石を利用し、呪文やメロディによって魔法を発動させる少女は “魔女”と呼ばれ、歌唱活動や魔獣退治を行い、人々から憧れを集めていた。



The stage is Maesquester, a town in which bright sand and its crystal, pyroxene, have spread as power sources. A girl who uses magic sand and pyroxene to activate magic by means of spells and melodies is called a “witch,” who has been singing and defeating monsters, and has been attracted by people.

Flora Jogakuin is a school for witch apprentices founded by the Akatsuki Witch.
The girl, Tiara, who dreams of becoming a fine witch, hits the gate of the school.

“I would love to study at this institute-huh !?”
