Synopsis
Lux, a former prince of an empire named Arcadia that was overthrown via a rebellion five years earlier. Lux accidentally trespasses in a female dormitory's bathing area, sees the kingdom's new princess Lisesharte naked, and incurs her wrath. Lisesharte then challenges Lux to a Drag-Ride duel. Drag-Rides are ancient armored mechanical weapons that have been excavated from ruins all around the world. Lux used to be called the strongest Drag-Knight, but now he's known as the "undefeated weakest" Drag-Knight because he will absolutely not attack in battle. After his duel with Lisesharte, Lux ends up attending the female-only academy that trains royals to be Drag-Knights. (Source: ANN)

Why are Light Novels like this? I mean most LN's have the same concept or similar stories.

It was only a matter of time I guess. At least it's not Production IMS. The Twintails character design was wasted there. Let's hope they handle the Drag Ride's animation well.

Not surprised at all by this. Not expecting much from it either.

I wouldn't expect this to debut for awhile. Probably Fall at the very best since Lerche is also working on three other projects (assuming they are all 1 cour).

The ancient armored mechanical weapons were the first clue.

Honestly though content may be the same but LN creator is creative at making many setting.

The only thing about this that even remotely catches my interest is that this is going to be by Lerche. Other than that, I'm pretty sure I've read that exact description for at least three shows in the last few months (with only names and a few other words changed). The others sounded more interesting though.

Eh, I'll probably stilll watch it though, cos these shows aren't the absolute worst thing out there. And I do like Studio Lerche, so there's that as well.

Can you sound even more generic than this?

Obviously the usual crowd will lvoe this while every sane person just shakes heads in disbelief. Oh well, this is why anime as a medium has problems.

Yeah, using the same generic female highschool setting and "weakest, but ultimately strongest character" cliche over and over again sure is creative...

Wow, that synopsis and that cover picture are already big turn offs.

Putting $20 dollars in that Harem King will voice the MC.

i knew sooner or later this will be adapted...for those who are not new...

This is harem...cavalry is not...

this has a lot of fanservice...cavalry? 2 or 3 max scene if i recall correctly

just like asterisk, i dropped this after 2 volumes... its boring...

even the manga is boring...

it's like IS all over again

Krulcifer animated?! YES PLEASE!!

To be honest though... this is pretty much Infinite Stratos 2.0
Only reason to watch it is if a girl captures your attention

Cavalry is a harem, and it's got A LOT of fanservice scenes.

I'm willing to bet on Yoshitsugu just as other people have said. Kaji hasn't been doing any new harem male mcs recently (iirc, the last similar role would be in Black Bullet last year). Yoshitsugu on the other hand though....countless XD Would be best if neither voiced the male mc here, only because I dislike seeing VAs that I like being typecasted.

Yeah, Kaji hasn't been in a main harem role for a while. I'm even willing to bet Hanae Natsuki could get it or Osaka Ryouta since they're new but popular.

I swear I was just planning to read this novel a few weeks back.

I'll be watching the anime only for Krulcifer and Lisesharte.

it's official, swordmagicbattlehighschool harems have taken away my belowed slice of life harems

This shows synopsis........... 10/10. generic level is over 9000. This magic sword battle genre is seriously a joke at this point,I hope this fad dies out as soon as possible. AND THEN slice of life/comedy/romance LN shall rule anime again XDD (but seriously, if Japan wants LN adaptations so bad, then they should animate more light novels similar to Boku wa Tomodach ga Sukunai or stuff like Chuunibyou or stuff similar to Oregairu. )
