The editorial department of Monthly Shounen Ace
magazine has announced on Sunday that an anime adaptation for Suu Minazuki
manga has been green-lit. Details regarding the anime adaptation will be announced at a later date.
In a post-apocalyptic world dominated by the so-called "Numbers," each human will have their identity branded with their own "Count," which could define any number related to their life. May it be one's walked distance or amount of compliments given to them by others, this Count could lead them to the abyss when it has dropped to zero.
In the year 305 of the Alcian calendar, Hina has inherited a mission from her Mother, whose Count has depreciated to zero, to search for the Legendary Red Baron. In her adventure, she meets a half-masked swordsman named Licht who tries to hide his identity, as he is known as a degenerate for having an incredibly low Count.
The action fantasy manga has been serialized in Monthly Shounen Ace magazine since December 2014, and currently has eight compiled volumes in print. Kadokawa plans to publish the ninth volume on February 26 along with the April issue of the magazine, which would feature the series on the cover. An oversized poster drawn by Minazuki will also be bundled with the issue to commemorate the announcement.
