New visual unveiled for anime of Kei Amagi's light novels

Kadokawa opened a website and Twitter account for the anime of Kei Amagi's Assassins Pride light novel series on Thursday. The site reveals that EMT Squared (The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar, Kuma Miko: Girl Meets Bear) is animating the series for airing this year. They also posted a new visual.

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 ninth novel volume on January 19. A separate short story collection shipped in February 2018.

Yoshie Katō (Shindere Shōjo to Kodoku na Shinigami) launched a manga adaptation in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine in May 2017. The manga's third compiled volume shipped last November.
