Hey guys, we have a new fantasy anime coming this October as part of the fall 2019 anime lineup and that is no other than Assassins Pride. The anime is the new project of EMT Squared this year and based on the available trailers, it’s quite promising though I just wish it won’t be one of those disappointing anime shows which only great trailers but turns out to be a train wreck when it aired. Nonetheless, I have high hopes for Assassins Pride TV anime adaptation especially with the fact that its source material, Assassin’s Pride light novel series is well-received.
Assassins Pride Anime Overview
In anticipation with Assassin’s Pride release on October 10, 2019, we have here some of the details that we thought may help you understand its story including its synopsis as follows:
