The series began in 2013 under SB Creative’s GA Bunko light novel imprint and has published a total of 5 volumes to date. A manga adaptation of the series was produced by Fumi Tadauri that began last year in Square Enix and GA Bunko’s Gangan GA online magazine, where the second volume will be released on June 12th this year.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
Lux, who was a prince from the Empire that was destroyed five years ago due to the revolt, met with the princess of the new Kingdom, Lizsharte, by accidentally breaking into the bathroom of the girl’s dormitory.
“……How long are you planning to stare at my body, you fooooool!”
The ancient weapons found from the ruins, the Drag-Ride. Lux who was called the strongest Drag-Knight in the past was now known as the “Weakest Undefeated,” a Drag-Knight who doesn’t attack at all. After the duel that started by the challenge from Lizsharte, Lux ended up entering the girls’ school that raised Drag-Knights……!
Lux’s story where he is surrounded by the noble girls from the academy is about to unfold.
The “ultimate” academy fantasy battle where the right and the might cross passes now begins!
An anime adaptation of the Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut light novel series is currently in production. Further information will be revealed at a later date.
