Tomori Kusunoki as Melida Angel, a girl born in a family of Holy Knights but with no talent with mana

Yui Ishikawa as Elise Angel, Melida's cousin and a Holy Knight who can use mana unlike Melida. She boasts the most talent in her class despite her stoic, silent nature.

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 other staff members include:

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.

Amagi launched the novels with illustrations by Nino Ninomoto in 2016. Yoshie Katō (Shindere Shōjo to Kodoku na Shinigami) launched a manga adaptation in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine in May 2017.
