New ‘The Dawn of the Witch’ key visual features Saybil, Hort, Loux, Zero, Mercenary and Minister

Zero, Mercenary and Minister from The Dawn of the Witch

A new The Dawn of the Witch key visual was released today in promotion for the upcoming action adventure fantasy anime.

The visual features Saybil, Hort and Loux Krystas in the foreground, backed by Zero and her bodyguard Mercenary of Grimoire of Zero fame, and Minister. Check it out below.

The Dawn of the Witch anime is based on the light novel and manga by Kakeru Kobashiri, the author of Grimoire of Zero.

It is a somewhat sequel to that anime so let’s hope we get to continue the journey of Zero and Mercenary. and not spend the whole anime concentrating on new characters Saybil, Hort and Loux Krystas, eh? (Because, man, I loved that show).
