New cast members and Japanese broadcast details revealed for upcoming fantasy light novel adaptation
A dynamic new trailer, new cast members, and a new key visual have been unveiled for Assassins Pride, an upcoming TV anime based on the series of fantasy light novels written by Kei Amagi and illustrated by Nino Ninomoto about a young noble woman who struggles to be a hero despite lacking the magical mana-manipulation powers of her predecessors.
The new cast members announced for Assassins Pride include:
Ayane as Nerva Martillo.
Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Williams Gin.
And Toshiyuki Morikawa as Oyaji ("Father").
The original Assassins Pride novels are published in Japan by Fujimi Shobo (a division of Kadokawa) under their Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint. The story is set in a world where families of nobles are responsible for defending humanity from monsters using an inherited power called "Mana." Melida Angel is a young aristocrat who attends an academy to train for this role, but she is unable to use "Mana". To discover her true talent, a young man named Kufa Vampir is dispatched to serve as her tutor, but Kufa also has secretly been assigned to assassinate Melida if her talents don't manifest...
Assassins Pride is directed by Kazuya Aiura and features animation production by EMT Squared. The series will broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX, BS Nippon TV, and AT-X beginning in October of 2019.
