Continuing to build upon their Winter 2016 simulcast line-up, North American anime publisher Sentai Filmworks have confirmed that they hold the rights to Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle, the adaptation of a light novel by Senri Akatsuki (which featured illustrations by Kasuga Ayumu). Also known as Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut (最弱無敗の神装機竜), this series follows a young man named Lux, the former prince of Arcadia. After an accident in the bathing area lands Lux in hot water with the kingdom’s new princess, Liseshart, he finds himself forced into a duel that pits mechanical weapons against each other. Little does he know what else lies in wait when he has to join the school that trains the wielders of these ancient weapons.
The anime adaptation of Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle features animation by Lerche, with Masaomi Ando serving as series director. Mayuka Itou and Keiko Kurosawa will serve as co-chief animation directors, with the latter also taking on the role of character designer. Yuuko Kaikihara is the one in charge of series composition, while music is handled by Akito Matsuda.
Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle is set to begin simulcasting via select video-on-demand services in January 2016. A home video release is set to follow.
