posted on by Egan Loo
TBS began streaming the second promotional video for the Lance N' Masques television anime on Tuesday. The video features the opening theme song "Light for Knight" by Suzuko Mimori and profiles the story and characters:
Lance N' Masques adapts Hideaki Koyasu's battle action novel series revolving 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.
The anime stars:
Ari Ozawa (The Rolling Girls' Nozomi) as Makio Kidōin

Koyasu (Akikan!, GJ Club, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: Demon Capital) himself is supervising and writing the series scripts. (Studio Gokumi had edited the light novel series before being in charge of the anime production.)
