The story takes place after an abominable war that foisted a "devil's contract" upon a land. Cecily Campbell, a former noble's daughter who joined a knighthood, encounters a man who dispatches some hoodlums with one sweep of a mysterious sword. The man possesses the power of the same "devil's contract" that has become taboo, now that peace has been restored. Cecily has been searching for a blacksmith who can repair an old sword she inherited from her father, and that mysterious young man happens to be blacksmith named Luke. This encounter launches their adventures together.

Based on the light novel series by Isao Miura. Also adapted into the manga, [Seiken no Blacksmith].
Cute opening to a series worth watching. Start is a flash ahead to the end of the episode. The rest of the episode is what transpires without the usual monologue done so many times over. The end of the episode doesn't explain things nicely but makes you want to see the next to find out more.
looks entertaining. perhaps a bit insulting to european swordsmithing.
