The official website for the anime adaptation of Hideaki Koyasu's light novel series Lance N' Masques announced the main cast on Tuesday.
The cast includes:
- Daiki Yamashita (Yowamushi Pedal's Onoda) as Yōtarō Hanafusa
- Ari Ozawa (The Rolling Girls' Nozomi) as Makio Kidōin
- Manami Numakura (The [email protected]'s Hibiki) as Yoriko Sudo
- Suzuko Mimori (Love Live! School idol project's Umi) as Alice Cleveland
Kyōhei Ishiguro (Your lie in April) is directing the anime at Studio Gokumi (Saki - The Nationals, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, The Severing Crime Edge). Koyasu (Akikan!, GJ Club, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: Demon Capital) himself will be supervising and writing the series scripts. (Studio Gokumi had edited the light novel series before being in charge of the anime production.)
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. One day he meets a girl named Makio Kidōin, and when finding that she lives alone, decides to watch over her. Novel illustrator Shino (Sunday Without God) is collaborating on the anime to depict scenes of everyday life and battles that Shino had not drawn for the light novels.
This is the first work from Pony Canyon's Poni Can light novel imprint to get an anime adaptation. The fourth novel will ship on Wednesday.
