The Fantasia Bunko Daikanshasai 2018 stage on Sunday has announced that light novel Assasins Pride will get an anime adaptation. More information will be revealed at a later date.

Synopsis
In the world where only the aristocrats have the power to fight the monster-mana. A youth named Kufa is dispatched as a tutor to find Mareida's talent, a nuisance girl born in a duke's family. If she is not talented, assassinate her-that, is the dark side of his task… (Source: Novel Updates)

Assasins Pride is written by Kei Amagi and illustrated by Ninomotonino, which has been serialized since January 2016. Kadokawa released the eighth volume through the Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint on August 18, with the Secret Garden short stories collection on February 20. The light novel series received Grand Prize at the 28th Fantasia Bunko Taisho in 2015.

A manga adaptation drawn by Yoshie Katou has been serialized in Ultra Jump magazine since May 2017 and has two compiled volumes in print as of April 19.

Looks interesting, I’ll probably give it a go!
Besides, the audience seemed to be very pleased with the announcement so I hope it’ll live up to it.

Sounds trash, but I just find it funny that the girl in that picture basically looks like a discount Asuna. Talk about derivative.

the manga is hella enjoyable, but nothing too special, I might give it a try if the adaptation was good, which I doubt.

Read a few chapters...not looking forward to this. Kinda wished they'd stop with turning these lazily constructed LN premises in multi million dollar anime adaptations that require a shit ton of merch to break even

it's like they wanted people in the bookstores to mistake it for SAO with those character designs haha. What a joke.

I read the 1st 4 chapters of the manga last year so I will pretty much watch it regardless if the anime adaptation will be good or bad.

Liked the girl's design in the LN which was the reason I read the manga. :v

Interesting but that art looks literally like Kirito and Asuna. Same colors too.

Also holy fuck why even make her wear a skirt? If the creators want us so much to see her panties then go for it.
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

IM NOT AN ELITIST

I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

Oh wow, washed out Kirito and Asuna. Only judging by the girl's expression, she has really shitty personality. Cunt with sword, what could possibly go wrong. Tell me she's voice by Kugumiya and the shit constellation is almost complete.

This has to be harem, if not, then it'll literally be 10x worse than it is. Also considering that the cover picture shows thicc thighs, I'm pretty sure it have some wholesome thigh scenes...

The guy doesn't look like Kirito at all, just look at a picture that shows him in detail.

I guess the girl does look like Asuna. But Asuna has one of the most generic character designs anyway, half of anime heroines look like her.

The only time I can see where this makes sense with the comparison is with Asuna... Kirito??? Not really? They look nothing alike at least compared to the original source's designs on its own.

With that being said, well... I say I'll give this a shot, since it looks interesting on its own.

Everytime I see Light Novel [series name] gets anime adaptation I get a heart drop. I'm waiting for both Konjiki no Word Master and How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom to be announced. If they do get announced, just know I'll be excited. And you all will be the first ones to know.
