New key visual and Japanese TV schedule revealed for upcoming fantasy light novel adaptation
A new trailer, a new key visual, and the Japanese TV schedule have been revealed 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 must find her innate magical powers or face assassination at the hands of her tutor.
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 according to the following TV schedule:
- Tokyo MX: every Thursday during the 24:00 time slot beginning on October 10, 2019.
- Sun TV: every Thursday during the 24:30 time slot beginning on October 10, 2019.
- BS NTV: every Thursday during the 25:00 time slot beginning on October 10, 2019.
- AT-X: every Thursday during the 23:30 time slot beginning on October 10, 2019.
Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming of the previous day, so for example the 24:00 time slot on Thursday evening is actually on Friday morning at 12:00am JST.
