Fantasy TV anime ships on DVD/BD in N. America on June 13

Sentai Filmworks began streaming an Ikki and Stella promotional video for its English dub of the Chivalry of a Failed Knight television anime series on Friday. The video reveals that Clint Bickham will play Ikki Kurogane, and Luci Christian will play Stella Vermillion. The company will release the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on June 13.

Sentai Filmworks revealed in February that it was making an English dub for the anime. A teaser video showed Sentai Filmworks ADR director Christopher Ayres working on the title.

The series premiered in Japan in October 2015 and Sentai Filmworks streamed the series on Hulu as it aired. The company announced in 2015 that it had licensed the anime.

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."

Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, WATAMOTE) and Jin Tamamura (Invaders of the Rokujyōma!?) served 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) was in charge of the series scripts, and Sei Komatsubara designed the characters.
