The August issue of Enterbrain's Tech Gian magazine is announcing on Saturday that a television anime adaptation of Ricotta's adult PC game Walkure Romanze Shōjo Kishi Monogatari has been green-lit.

The visual novel centers around Takahiro Mizuno, a student training to be a begleiter (knight's assistant) at an academy where aspiring knights joust. He himself had come to this academy to train as a knight, after becoming the unrivaled junior champion in his own home country. However, an injury in a tournament's finals forced him to withdraw. Instead, he decides to be a begleiter to one of the academy's maiden knights and help her win.

The game debuted in October 2011 with designs by Kei Komori and theme songs by Miyuki Hashimoto. It already inspired several manga series by Mitsu King in ASCII Media Works' Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine, by Manoa Nagisa in ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Hime magazine, by No.Gomesu in Kill Time Communication's Comic Valkyrie website, and by Sawayoshi Azuma in Dengeki Hime. Frontier Works also released two drama CDs with Ai Shimizu as Mio Kisaki, as Eriko Nakamura as Marres Ascot, and Kei Mizusawa as Celia Cumani Aintree. A spinoff game Walkure Romanze More & More is planned for this year.

Ricotta's first title, Princess Lover!, also inspired both video anime projects and a television anime series.
