Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Synopsis
The “school sword action” story centers around Magic Knights, modern magic-users who battle with weapons transformed from their souls. Kurogane Ikki goes to a school for these Magic Knights, but he’s the “Failed Knight” or “Worst One” who’s failing because he has no magical abilities. However, one day, he’s challenged to a duel by Stella Vermillion, a foreign princess and the Number One student. In this duel, the loser has to be obedient for life.
