Kei Amagi’s light novel, Assassin’s Pride, will be getting an anime adaptation which should premiere sometime this year. Amagi originally launched the light novel way back in 2016. The Assassin’s Pride anime will be produced by studio EMT Squared. You may know them from their work on shows such as The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar, Love Tyrant, and Sword Dynasty. Although we don’t have an official trailer for the series, we do have a visual that you can see below.
The story takes place in a world where royal families are blessed with the mana to battle against monsters. Kufa who was born a noble, was sent to tutor a young girl named Merida. To his surprise, Merida has absolutely no talent whatsoever, and Kufa is instructed to secretly assassinate her in the process.
