Voice actress unit Run Girls, Run! announced at its two-year anniversary party event on Sunday that it will perform the opening song "Share the light" for the television anime of Kei Amagi's Assassins Pride light novel series. Natsumi Tadano wrote the lyrics for the song, and Hidekazu Tanaka of MONACA wrote and arranged the song.
Kazuya Aiura (episode director on Citrus, My Sister, My Writer) is directing the anime at EMT Squared (The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar, Kuma Miko: Girl Meets Bear). Deko Akao (Amanchu!, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Noragami) is in charge of the series scripts, and Maho Yoshikawa (Amnesia, Yona of the Dawn) is serving as both character designer and chief animation director. Yoshiko Saitō (A Certain Magical Index III) is serving as sub-character designer and also chief animation director.
The series takes place in a world where only those from noble families have the mana to be able to fight against monsters. Kufa is a noble born to a duke's family who is sent to tutor a young woman named Melida. If it turns out that Melida has no talent with mana, Kufa is secretly instructed to assassinate her.
