I know we've talked about this show before, but now it's coming up soon, so perhaps some of the info bears repeating.

Title: Seiken no Blacksmith
JP Title: 聖剣の刀鍛冶
Title Translation: The Sacred Blacksmith
Studio: Manglobe
Genre: Fantasy
Airs: AT-X, Saturdays at 11:30pm, starting October 3rd.
Cecily Cambell is a would-be knight with a remarkable old sword from her father which she hopes to get repaired-- but first she has to find the right blacksmith. One day she bumps into a man with a strange taboo power and an oddly-shaped sword. His name is Luke Aunsworth, and the two unite for a what will probably be a rollicking adventure. Eventually the two are joined by Luke's live-in helpmate, the loli Lisa, and the mysterious bodyguard Aria.
It's been a while since we've had a sort of traditional fantasy adventure other than Slayers-- perhaps because it's been so long since Zero no Tsukaima aired anything on TV? --but it looks like a solidly-animated show and I'm hoping it's a lot of fun. Be sure to watch the trailers!

Hmm...I'll definitely check out the first episode at least.

Doesn't seem particularly original, but it looks nice. I'll probably give the first episode a shot.

@Sigue: I dunno, most of these fantasy adventures don't feature female protagonists. Slayers is an exception, but it's farce at least as much as "traditional" fantasy adventure.

But gia forgot to mention Druaga, which is totally standard fantasy adventure stuff. AND recent.
