Knight’s & Magic Episode 3: It’s my hobby!

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.

    If you don’t want to blog weekly, you could always blog in batches of 3-4 eps per blog entry. I’ll admit the novels aren’t the deepest series, especially in terms of character development. It compensates with mecha R&D, robot battles and Ernesti’s zeal.

    Regarding the spies, if the anime goes far enough you’ll get to see who they work for. Hint: They’re not locals, and Fremevilla has plenty of neighbouring countries West of its borders.

      It’s not that it discourages me from wanting to cover it weekly – in fact it’s easier and more practical for me to do it that way, especially given my health condition with tendonitis. The real problem is whether or not it will keep me motivated enough to want to cover the whole series, period. (Especially when the narrator is constantlyyyyy telling us what is happening or what is going to happen.)

      I suspected the spies were not locals. The only people who would want to gain an advantage of stealing the blue prints would be neighboring kingdoms. It would certainly give them the upper-hand if they have been planning to go to war for a while now. I do hope the anime goes that far though – should the original plot head off into that direction. While I adore Ernesti’s passion for robots, I definitely need some plot and more action to hold my attention – especially if it as you said, the character development is going to be lacking (and honestly i am already noticing this problem due to the way the series is being executed).

    I think politically things will be interesting, at least in my opinion. In the manga Ernesti’s thoughts were “That’s not one you show towards a child. He’s waiting for the slighest chance of gaining an upper hand in negotiations on the inside. I remember that from my memories from my “previous life”…. “A businessman’s expression”. This is a negotiation. The haggling has begun.” Obviously the king didn’t meet Ernesti and listen to his wish out of the goodness of his heart, but that really suggests that he wants something from Ernesti.

    I do agree the narrator can be kind of annoying with telling us what’s going to happen.= though.
