The official website of the the television anime adaptation of writer Senri Akatsuki and illustrator Ayumu Kasuga's (Jōkamachi no Dandelion) Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut (Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) light novel series announced the anime's theme song singers on Thursday.
TRUE (Maria the Virgin Witch, Sound! Euphonium) will perform the opening theme, while nano.RIPE (Hanasaku Iroha, Humanity Has Declined) will perform the ending theme.
The story of the light novel series revolves around Lux, a former prince of an empire named Arcadia that was overthrown via a rebellion five years earlier. Lux accidentally trespasses in a female dormitory's bathing area, sees the kingdom's new princess Lisesharte naked, and incurs her wrath. Lisesharte then challenges Lux to a Drag-Ride duel. Drag-Rides are ancient armored mechanical weapons that have been excavated from ruins all around the world. Lux used to be called the strongest Drag-Knight, but now he's known as the "undefeated weakest" Drag-Knight because he will absolutely not attack in battle. After his duel with Lisesharte, Lux ends up attending the female-only academy that trains royals to be Drag-Knights.
The show will premiere in Japan in January 2016.
