The staff had revealed a second key visual for the film in October.


The film will feature a new character named Kokoa (pictured below), who is a deserter from the National Defense Navy's base, and who ends up in Miyuki's care. Her appearance is that of a very young woman, but her true character is shrouded in mystery.


In the story, the seasons have changed, and it will soon be the second spring. The poor student older brother Tatsuya and the honor student younger sister Miyuki have finished their first year at their magic high school, and are on their spring break. The two go to their villa on the Ogasawara Island archipelago. After only a small moment of peace, a lone young woman named Kokoa appears before them. She has abandoned the Naval base, and she tells Tatsuya her one wish.

The film's returning cast includes:

Saori Hayami as Miyuki Shiba 
Yūichi Nakamura as Tatsuya Shiba 
Yumi Uchiyama as Erika Chiba 
Takuma Terashima as Leonhart Saijo 
Satomi Satou as Mizuki Shibata

Tsutomu Satou started writing the novel series with character designs and illustrations by Kana Ishida (Aquarion Evol character design) in 2008 under the Dengeki Bunko label. Yen Press licensed the original light novel series and the spinoff manga "The Honor Student at Magic High School".

The eariel 26-episode TV anime adaptation debuted in April 2014 from director Manabu Ono at Madhouse. Aniplex of America licensed the anime and released it on home video in 1025.
