The GA Bunko 10th Anniversary Festa event announced the main cast and main staff for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry (A Chivalry of the Failed Knight or Worst One's Cavalry) anime and unveiled a visual on Sunday. The anime adapts Riku Misora's light novel series of the same name.
The main cast includes:
- Ryota Ohsaka as Ikki Kurogane
- Shizuka Ishigami as Stella Vermillion
- Nao Tōyama as Shizuku Kurogane
- Shintarō Asanuma as Nagi Arisuin
Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, WATAMOTE) and Jin Tamamura (Invaders of the Rokujyōma!?) are serving as director and series director, respectively, at the anime studios SILVER LINK. (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, WATAMOTE) and Nexus (Santa Company, Wakaba Girl). Shogo Yasukawa (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Terraformars) is in charge of the series scripts, and Sei Komatsubara designed the characters. Jin Aketagawa of Magic Capsule is the sound director.
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 is publishing the seventh volume in May. Megumu Soramichi has been drawing the manga adaptation in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine.
