The official Twitter account for Shueisha’s Ultra Jump magazine revealed in an image on Friday that the anime of Kei Amagi’s Assassins Pride light novel series will premiere this fall. EMT Squared (The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar, Kuma Miko: Girl Meets Bear) is animating the series.
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.
