Knight’s & Magic Episode 1 [First Impression]

Eva

My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    There are fantranslations of the 1st 4 LN volumes of Knights out on the internet, if you’re interested…

    The anime’s breezed through the 1st half of Vol 1. 1st half is character intros, setup and worldbuilding, while 2nd half is mecha action, which snowballs in subsequent volumes together with tech innovations. The 1st half is somewhat slow with no robots appearing there, so I see why the anime wanted to run right to the mecha stuff.

    IMO, Knights is one of the more unusual webnovels turned LNs because its content is made to appeal more to mecha otaku over the usual mainstream otaku crowd. So instead of the usual sexy/ecchi fanservice, you get robot battles and tech R&D for fanservice.
    Considering Knights’s author openly states in his Twitter profile that he ” loves works with giant humanoid weapons, and will live and die for mecha”, it’s clear how his priorities shaped Knight’s themes. ;D

      Yipee~!!!! I will definitely read them!!! But I think I’ll try and hold back till after the anime, I don’t’ want to spoil myself (might be hard to refrain from doing so though lmao!)

  2. Unfortunately I know NOTHING about Knights & Magic apart from the fact that the protagonist is a boy who looks like a girl. However, I do like that she-I mean, “he” is voiced by Takahashi Rie, one of my favourite seiyuus. True, I never liked Mirai back in Mahou Tsukai Precure, but Rie’s voice acting left me a lasting impression. Anyways, I’ll try to watch this series.
