The wraparound band on the short story collection "Ulysses 0: Jehanne Darc to Hime Kishi Danchou Kuroshi" volume of light novel Ulysses: Jehanne Darc to Renkin no Kishi has revealed that an anime adaptation of the series is in progress.

Synopsis
The story is set in the 15th century, during the Hundred Years' War between France and England over the succession to the French throne. Montmorency, the son of a noble, immerses himself in the studies of magic and alchemy at a royal knight training school. However, following France's crushing defeat at Agincourt, the school is dissolved. Having lost everything and now a wanted man, Montmorency, who had just become an alchemist, encounters a mysterious village girl named Jehanne.

The novel is written by Mikage Kasuga with illustrations by Merontomari, and has been published under the Dash x Bunko imprint since August 2015. Shueisha released the third volume in April 2016, and the short story collection on Wednesday.

101 on how to hype up and then completely disappoint the reader within a single sentence of the synopsis.

Of course I did said this every time, so unless someone is an masochist/completionist (which I don't really pass it off easily but I'll digress), then yeah you can watch the others in whatever season this shows airs (which we don't know yet)

We need a 3-5 year moratorium on bad isekai, harem, and fantasy LNs being adapted into anime. This is just ridiculous.

You know what, sometimes I think that Japanese are writing/Adapting to TV's medium more stories using the "Jeanne D'Arc" name than us French.
She sure is popular at the other side of the world for someone who died more than 600 years ago. :O

Same for us British lol... London has been used quite often as a setting more in their entertainment than ours... And don't even mention all the different historic figures...

Rather than The Rose of Versailles, it might be more similar to Magi?
