An early scan of the upcoming Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine has revealed that Riku Misora’s light novel series Rakudai Kishi no Cavalary has gotten the green light to be adapted into an anime series. The title translates as A Chivalry of the Failed Knight and it began back in 2013 with artwork by artist Won. Six volumes have been released so far for the light novel series while a maga adaptation began in March 2014 from Megumu Soramichi. No details about the production were announced in the scan.
Plot concept: The series revolves around Mage-Knights, humans with supernatural powers who can materialize a weapon from their souls. Ikki Kurogane, dubbed as the “Failure Knight” for having no talent in modern-day magic, is a repeating student in an institution for Mage-Knights because of his failing grades. With the installation of a new head of the institution, a new rule was stated: knights with compatible abilities must share rooms and train together for the whole school year to maximize their abilities.
One day, Ikki encounters a half-naked girl, Stella Vermillion, who was changing in his room. It turns out that she is a princess of a foreign country and a Rank A Mage-Knight to boot. Stella challenged Ikki to a duel where the loser must be obedient to the winner. This fateful meeting changes Ikki’s life as he strives to become a real Mage-Knight.
