Media Factory's 12-episode anime adaptation of Isao Miura's The Sacred Blacksmith (Seiken no Blacksmith) "unconventional fantasy" light novels takes place after an devastating war that foisted "Demon Contracts" upon the population until they were banned. Cecily Campbell, a noble's daughter who joined a knighthood, encounters a mysterious young blacksmith named Luke Ainsworth. Masamitsu Hidaka (Linebarrels of Iron, Pokémon, Juu Senshi Garukiba) directed the project at the manglobe anime studio (Ergo Proxy, Michiko to Hatchin, Samurai Champloo). Masashi Suzuki (Kanokon, Minami-ke: Okawari, Shuffle!) oversaw the scripts, and Jun Nakai (Tokyo Majin) adapted Runa's original character designs for anime.
