Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
The “school sword action” story revolves around Magic Knights, modern magic-users who fight with weapons converted from their souls. Ikki Kurogane goes to a school for these Magic Knights, but he is the “Failed Knight” or “Worst One” who is failing because he has no magical skills. However, one day, he is challenged to a duel by Stella, a foreign princess and the “Number One” student. In this duel, “the loser must be obedient for life.”
The anime adaptation of Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry will start airing this October during the Fall/Autumn 2015 anime season. Further information about the anime will be revealed in the upcoming months.
