A stage presentation at the "Fantasia Bunko Dai Kanshasai 2018" event on Sunday revealed that Kei Amagi's Assassin's Pride light novel series is getting an anime adaptation. The event did not reveal the format of the anime.
The series takes place in a world where only those from noble families have the mana to be able to fight against monsters. Kūfa is a noble born to a duke's family who is sent to tutor a young woman named Merida. If it turns out that Merida has no talent with mana, Kūfa is secretly instructed to assassinate her.
Amagi launched the novels with illustrations by Nino Ninomoto in 2016. Kadokawa published the eighth novel volume on August 18. A separate short story collection shipped on February 20.
Yoshie Katō (Shindere Shōjo to Kodoku na Shinigami) launched a manga adaptation in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine in May 2017. The manga's second compiled volume shipped on April 19, and the third volume will ship on November 19.
