The video previews the anime's opening theme "Hiryū no Kishi" by TRUE.
Narrator: Five years ago, the Arcadia Empire, who had spread their tyranny throughout the world, was brought down by a coup d'etat. A coup brought about by a lone machine, whose identity remains unknown even now. That Drag-Knight gave shape to the people's fears, and earned the name...
Narrator: The Black Hero.
Girl: This is the story of a boy who was called "the weakest."
Girl: TV anime Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle. Airing in January.
Kadokawa is also streaming 30- and 15-second commercials for the anime.
The anime will premiere on January 11.
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.
