A new anime based on a light novel "Seiken no Blacksmith -The Sacred Blacksmith-" was announced in the cover note of the novel.
The novel also gets a manga adaptation and it will start publication in Comic Alive on March 27th. The author of the art is Yamada Koutarou.

Synopsis: Once upon a time, there was a tragic war, in which the power of the devils was involved. After the war, the devils' power was banned and the world was restored to peace. Cecily Campbell is a knight, who has been looking for a blacksmith to repair her old sword given by her father. One day, she saw a man fighting with a ruffian who used the tabooed devil's power. The man defeated him with one blow of his weirdly shaped sword. The man turned out to be a blacksmith called Luke. The fateful encounter was the beginning of the adventure.

Synopsis sounds pretty crappy, but I had an image in my head of what the show might be like. Then I saw the novel volume 1 cover art.

I'm really starting to detest moe...

If the would only stop spending money in stuff like this... One more anime to the columns of "no content, half naked girls"

i'm glad i'm not alone.


lol...

hopefully this is not another fanservice infested series (at least not heavily fanservice oriented and actually have a more decent plot) The sypnosis sounds a bit cliche...but oh well...let's wait for the series to come out before judging it...

The synopsis gets a "meh..." from me. Nothing special about it and the character design just looks like they slapped on a bunch of stuff together. We got some kind of mini skirt, a cape, breast plate and tiara. Just looks like a more impractical version of the Claymore outfit. ^_^
