Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut (Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) is a fantasy action light novel series written by Senri Akatsuki with illustrations by Ayumu Kasuga, who created the Joukamachi no Dandelion manga. The series began in 2013 under SB Creative’s GA Bunko light novel imprint and has published a total of 6 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.
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.
