Madan no Ou to Vanadis (also known as Lord Marksman and Vanadis) is a fantasy, action anime series based on the light novel written by Tsukasa Kawaguchi and illustrated by Yoshio (Volume 1-8, Hinata Katagiri since Volume 9), published by Media Factory. The story focuses on Tigrevurmud Vorn, a nobleman from the fictional European country of Brune. Under the leadership of King Faron, Brune is in the midst of a civil war between their two heirs due to Faron's deteriorating health. Meanwhile, Zhcted, Brune's longtime rival ruled by the seven war maidens known as the Vanadis, launches an invasion due to the flood control laws. Eleonora Viltaria, the war maiden of Leitmeritz, lead an invasion of Brune, ambushing most of the military in the process. Tigre, the sole survivor of Elen's assault, is captured by Elen and recruited into her army. Elen and Tigre are inevitably drawn into the heart of the conflicts when his homeland Alsace is invaded.

It was one of the five MF Bunko J light novel anime adaptations announced at Media Factory's Summer School Festival Event on July 28, 2013.
