posted on by Egan Loo
The AT-X channel began running a commercial for the television anime adaptation of Ricotta's adult PC game Walkure Romanze (Walkure Romanze Shōjo Kishi Monogatari) in Japan. The commercial features the opening theme song "Un-delayed" by Miyuki Hashimoto.
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.
Yusuke Yamamoto (Sergeant Frog, Aquarion Evol) will direct the series, and Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Detective Opera Milky Holmes, Kämpfer) is overseeing the screenplay. Kenichirou Katsura (Utawarerumono) is the character designer for the series, and 8-Bit is producing the series. Lantis will handle the music and Miyuki Hashimoto will be singing the opening.
Newcomer Seiichirō Yamashita will voice the main character, Takahiro Mizuno. Hiroko Taguchi (Miyako Miyamura in ef: a tale of memories and Maina in Elemental Gelade) will be joining the cast as Lisa Eosutore. Ai Shimizu, Kei Mizusawa, and Eriko Nakamura will be playing Mio Kisaki, Celia Cumani Aintree, and Noelle Marres Ascot respectively.
The anime will premiere on October 6, although AT-X will not start the anime until October 8. Crunchyrol will stream the anime into several countries as it airs in Japan.
