Plot: Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle follows, Lux, a former prince of an empire named Arcadia that was overthrown via a rebellion five years earlier. Lux accidentally trespasses in a female dormitory’s bathing area, sees the kingdom’s new princess Lisesharte naked, and incurs her wrath. Lisesharte then challenges Lux to a Drag-Ride duel. Drag-Rides are ancient armored mechanical weapons that have been excavated from ruins all around the world. Lux used to be called the strongest Drag-Knight, but now he’s known as the “undefeated weakest” Drag-Knight because he will absolutely not attack in battle. After his duel with Lisesharte, Lux ends up attending the female-only academy that trains royals to be Drag-Knights.
Impression: Everything in Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle reeks typical and overused. The first episode is an 80% ripoff from last year’s Chivalry of a Failed Knight and War of Asterisk. The setting is in a school/high-school for training fighters/warriors. The Hero ‘accidentally’ runs in to the heroine while she’s naked/half-naked. She challenges him to a duel. The hero seems really week but actually is Over Powered. He seems to be losing at first. Something happens and he ends up saving her. They become friends! Yay! The main guy, Lux Arcadia, looks almost like Bell Cranel from another Harem anime from last year, DanMachi and has a black sword like Kirito from SAO and involves fighting with mechas like Infinite Stratos. Almost nothing in this anime is unique and we have seen this type of anime way too many times.
Enough ranting. The animation of Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle is from Studio Lerche who did Assassination Classroom last year so it’s good and maybe the only saving grace. Overall it looked like a typical Ecchi/Harem and nothing more. Every season has one or two of them. This season is no different. Unless it does something really different to break free of these cliches I’m not expecting big things but will still watch it because these types of easy-going stuff are sometimes necessary.
