The April issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine is announcing on Thursday that an anime adaptation of Riku Misora's Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry (A Chivalry of the Failed Knight or Worst One's Cavalry) light novel series has been green-lit.
The "school sword action" story revolves around Magic Knights, modern magic-users who fight with weapons converted from their souls. Ikki Kurogane goes to a school for these Magic Knights, but he is the "Failed Knight" or "Worst One" who is failing because he has no magical skills. However, one day, he is challenged to a duel by Stella, a foreign princess and the "Number One" student. In this duel, "the loser must be obedient for life."
Misora launched the light novel series with illustrations by Won in 2013, and Softbank Creative published the sixth volume last month. Megumu Soramichi has been drawing the manga adaptation in Monthly Shonen Gangan.
