The Plot of Assassins Pride
The story of Assassins Pride revolves around a strange world where there is no value for humanity, and it has been pushed towards extinction. Flandore is the last remaining city where people live. Transparent glass-made domes separate the block of the city. The outside world of the dome is not safe due to savage lycanthropes, but despite this, people have to travel between the domes using trains. There are two classes of humanity within the domes; one is noble, and the other is the commoner.
The noble class of humanity is superior not only in social status but also in mana, which is a superhuman ability, and they use mana to fight and kill lycanthropes.
The story of Assassins Pride revolves around the young girl Melida Angel. Her father was noble, but her mother was a commoner. Due to this reason, she couldn’t manifest her powers, but she joined the elite academy to develop skills with mana.
On the other hand, Kufa Vampir becomes the tutor Melida to teach her mana following her grandfather Lord Mordrew. The family hired a teacher to determine if Melida was a noble member of the Angel family or not. Kufa was also permitted to kill Melida if she turned out to be the result of her mother’s affair, who isnot the blood of Lord Mordrew.
Later in the show, Kufa discovers that Melida doesn’t belong to a noble family, but he doesn’t ignore her strong spirit. He disobeys the given instruction and offers different ways to manifest her mana. With the help and teaching of mana, Melida can use mana for the first time. And now they both have to keep their actions secret from the family; otherwise, both of them will be killed.
