Anime based on Kei Amagi's light novel series stars Yūki Ono, Tomori Kusunoki

The official website for the television anime of Kei Amagi's Assassins Pride light novel series revealed the second promotional video, main visual, and October 10 premiere for the series on Thursday. The video previews Run Girls, Run!'s opening theme song "Share the light."

The anime will premiere on AT-X on October 10 at 11:30 p.m., before debuting later that night on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, and BS NTV. Voice cast members Yūki Ono, Tomori Kusunoki, Yui Ishikawa, and Marina Yabūchi will attend an advance screening of the anime's first episode at TOHO Cinemas Nihonbashi in Tokyo on September 22.

The anime's cast includes:

Yūki Ono as Kufa Vampir, who is dispatched to Melida as her tutor (and her possible assassin), but continues to train Melida in defiance of his orders

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.

Marina Yabūchi as Rosetti Pricket, an elite member of the holy city guards. She is currently Elise's tutor.

Ayane Sakura as Nerva Martillo

Toshiyuki Morikawa as Father

Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Williams Jin

Maaya Uchida as Mule la MOR

Azumi Waki as Salacha Schicksal

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.

Tomori Kusunoki, who voices Melida Angel, is performing the ending theme song "Ijin-tachi no Jikan" (Time of Foreigners). The singles for both theme songs will ship on November 27.

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.
