Alternative Title: Walkure Romanze
Aired: Oct 7, 2013 to ?
Producers: Lantis, Pony Canyon, 8bit
Genres: Ecchi, Romance, School, Sports, Harem
The story centers around Takahiro Mizuno, a student training to be a begleiter (knight's assistant) at an academy where aspiring knights joust. He himself had come to this academy to train as a knight, after becoming the unrivaled junior champion in his own home country. However, an injury in a tournament's finals forced him to withdraw. Instead, he decides to be a begleiter to one of the academy's maiden knights and help her win.
This show completely deserves its "Ecchi" label. The male lead (a.k.a the harem king) resembles Ichika from IS in art, and naturally, in character. Synopsis is a bit meh, though, since becoming the begleiter thing takes time to ramp up. Blondie heroines aren't really appealing, but the rest is fine.
If you tolerate ecchi within a good plot, I don't think you'll like it. If you like ecchi jokes on their own, then you might be entertained with it.
Still my favourite part of this show: japanese girl joins a tournament on an english school with a german application form.
Apart from that we have a very typical male pretty boy who only cares about his horse and his former hobby. Of course every single female wants him as a Begleiter...
The ambiguous scenes have pretty ecchi noises... Furthermore there is a lot of fanservice going on but who cares?
For now Takahiro has to make up his mind and Mio has to train... Furthermore Noel has quite the sad backstory... Looking forward to the next episode.
This show is full of Ecchi moments and FS, but for some reason I find it really enjoyable (but I don't mind the FS. )
I'll keep on following it, just to see if Mio will make realize that mass of denseness how important he is for her.
Lisa... Even more moe overload... Damn that random good looking harem leader guy... Where is my loli?
Although he got what he deserved... Eating that much stuff... Ugh...
But everything changed... When the squirrel nation attacked.

I never thought Takahiro would be that merciless... Poor Fiona.
Well must me my fault for thinking that this Anime might have a plot... 100% Ecchi after all. That lucky male lead though. Groping Akane like that. Who would touch the boobs of a sculpture?!
In the end Akane was able to overcome a weakness but... What a busty episode.
I really enjoyed this episode; that's all I have to say.
Anyway Takahiro sure is dense. LOL
Guess it can't be helped with the leads of Harem anime. XD
And another training camp / hot spring fanservice episode...
Apart from that we learned more about Takahiros past... Maybe his injury is only in his mind. Furthermore I really loved what Mio said to him.
But yeah... The rest was pretty much fanservice...

Remember when this show was about Jousting? I don't... I won't drop it now but seriously that was another pointless episode... There is no plot whatsoever... Which is quite sad because I thought there was potential.
What did you expect from an episode who was supposed to be like that from the beginning. XD
I enjpyed the girls in swimsuits, but it's true that there's not too much plot behind this series; maybe if they would just focus on Takahiro and the other girls....
An episode about jousting... Amazing.
I really liked this one. No fanservice, no jokes, just good.
The battle between Akane and Lisa was great.
Yeah, it was a nice episode and I loved the scene in which Lisa officially asked Fiona to be her friend.
Next week it will be the last episode; I wonder who will Takahiro choose.
Why do you think it is the last episode? As far as I know, this show has 12.
The match between Noel and Celia was intense as well as cheap. At least her father is cheering her on now...
Next week we will have Mio vs Celia and Takahiro will be Mios Begleiter me thinks.
The other battles... Well Akane and Lisa had bad luck with their opponents while Mio apparently got the easy ones...
We will have a miracle next week, so my guess is that Mio will win the tournament.....How I don't know. XD
Anyway this was a nice episode and also the duels were good.
Now I can't wait to watch the next and last episode.
Talk about an predictable ending...
That was the most anticlimatic final match I've ever seen. Kudos.
Apart from that a mediocre ending for a rather weak show with the typical harem lead cop out at the end.
Final Score: 5/10. Only because of that final joke. That one was worth 0,5 points alone.
