The historical figure Jeanne d’Arc is staring in an all-new historical fantasy series.
Ulysses: Jeanne d’Arc to Renkin no Kishi (Ulysses: Jeanne d’Arc and the Alchemy Knights) follows Montmorency, the son of a French noble with aspirations to become an alchemy knight. However, his magic academy closes after France’s defeat at Agincourt and he loses everything. While on the run, Montmorency meets a mysterious village girl named Jeanne.
The original novel series is written by Mikage Kasuga and illustrated by Tomari Meron. Studio AXsiZ (Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles / Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn) will animate the adaptation and Shin Itagaki (Ben-To / Teekyuu) will direct. Ryunosuke Kingetsu (Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero) is writing the scripts and Jouji Sawada (Golden Kids) is designing the cast.
The anime will star:
Ryota Ohsaka (Sadao Mahou in The Devil is a Part-Timer!) as Montmorency.
Yuko Ono (Aya Asagiri in Magical Girl Site) as Jeanne d’Arc.
Yuki Takada (Aoba Suzukaze in New Game!) as Philip.
Hisako Toujou (Chiaki Hagino in Hinako Note) as Astaroth.
Manami Numakura (Rio Nakamura in Assassination Classroom) as Richemont.
Saori Onishi (Hisako Arato in Food Wars! Shokugeki no Souma) as Charlotte.
Shizuka Ishigami (Ikuno in Darling in the Franxx) as La Hire.
Ulysses: Jeanne d’Arc to Renkin no Kishi will debut in October.
