We learned last October that a new anime project is in the works with an adaptation of the Assassin’s Pride light novel series from Kei Amagi getting the nod. The official site revealed plans for a fall 2019 debut and that EMT Squared is behind the animation production. Now, the staffing has been confirmed with Kazuya Aiura directing based on the scripts from Deko Akao. Maho Yoshikawa is serving as the character designer and chief animation director.

The Japanese cast includes:

  • Yuuki Ono as Kufa Vampir
  • Tomori Kusunoki as Melida Angel
  • Yui Ishikawa as Elise Angel
  • Marina Yabuuchi as Rosetti Pricket

Check out the character designs, the fall 2019 confirmation visual, and a group shot of the four lead actors together below.

The novels began in 2016 with Nuno Ninomoto handling the illustrations in it and it has nine volumes out so far.

The novels have also gotten a manga adaptation that began in 2017 with Yoshie Kato handling that in Ultra Jump with three compiled volumes released so far. Neither work has been licensed in English yet.

Check out the official site and Twitter.

Plot Concept: 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.
