Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry is based on Riku Misora and Won’s light novels of the same name. The series was first announced in March, in the pages of Square Enix’s Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine. At the time, no substantial information was offered, outside of actual show announcement.
In the weeks that followed, an official website opened, though it has yet to open past the initial “teaser” page.
In addition to the cast and crew information, a new key visual was released, which you can check out below:
