Anime publisher Sentai Filmworks announced this week, that it has acquired the upcoming fall 2015 action/fantasy anime series, “Chivalry of a Failed Knight,” for release in North America.
The “Chivalry of a Failed Knight” anime is produced by the anime studios Silver Link (Kokoro Connect) and Nexus (Wakaba＊Girl), and it is adapted from the series of light novels written by Riku Misora. The 12-episode anime series is set to make its debut in Japan on Oct. 3, 2015, and it will be available digitally through select digital outlets soon.
The series follows Ikki Kurogane, a student at a prestigious school for Magic Knights, where he is failing miserably. Despite being the worst student at the academy though, Ikki still manages to find himself challenged to a duel by Stella, the school’s number one student, with the stipulation that loser becomes the winner’s obedient servant, for life.
Sentai Filmworks has plans for a home video release of “Chivalry of a Failed Knight,” but they did not give any specific details at this time. For now, anime fans will just have to catch the series digitally when it debuts next month.
