Based off the original light novel by Senri Akatsuki and illustrated by Kasuga Ayumu, this series follows a young man named Lux, the former prince of Arcadia. After an accident in the bathing area lands Lux in hot water with the kingdom’s new princess, Liseshart, he finds himself forced into a duel that pits mechanical weapons against each other.
