posted on 2014-04-28 08:45 EDT by Sarah Nelkin
Pony Canyon announced on Monday that an anime adaptation of Hideaki Koyasu's light novel series Lance N' Masques has been green-lit. Studio Gokumi (Saki - The Nationals, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, The Severing Crime Edge) edited the series, and a promotional video and more information will be unveiled on the Internet program “Poni Can Zenbu!” on Friday at 8:00 p.m. JST.
The battle action novel series revolves around Yōtarō Hanafusa, a young man who is part of the last remaining order of knights in the 21st century, “Knights of the World.” As he fights as the mysterious Knight Lancer, he must hide his identity behind a mask.
Koyasu, a scriptwriter for the Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily anime, began the light novels last December with illustrations by Shino (Sunday Without God). Pony Canyon will ship the second volume of the series in Japan on Saturday. This is the first work from Pony Canyon's Poni Can light novel imprint to get an anime adaptation.
