Ready for something new? Good! Because Moon Phase reports that the light novel Seiken no Blacksmith (that would be something like “Blacksmith of the Holy Sword”) is getting a TV anime adaptation-- and a manga version as well.


If I'm reading this right...the light novels, by Isao Miura, revolve around a girl named Cecilie Campbell who comes from a family that makes swords to combat people who wield contracted demons, although such contracts have been taboo for ages ...probably. One day Cecilie encounters a man who is able to dodge her blade, and everything in her world changes.
