Chivalry of a Failed Knight

Chivalry of a Failed Knight

Ikki Kurogane may have come from a long line of Blazers, people with the ability to create weapons or devices manifested from their souls, but as far as the Hagun Academy is concerned, he's been a major disappointment in the magical powers department. He is so disappointing, in fact, that he's earned the unfortunate nickname of the "Worst One"...

Do you like swords?

red head tsuderes?

magic high school settings?

fire?

Op mains that start off unknown and or underestimated?

Caught undressing scenes?

male characters with a knack for ending up in unbeliveable sexual positions just for the heck of it?

panty shotts?

vague early hints of the surprise plot yet to unfold?

Well you get all that and more from both of these series!

Note: reccomendation is based on ep one of both series.

THEY ARE LITERALLY THE SAME ANIME. SERIOUSLY I DIDN'T KNOW 2 ANIMES IN THE SAME SEASON CAN HAVE THE SAME OPENING SCENE, GENRE, AND FIGHTING STYLE.

Marxman Marxman says

They are genuinely indentical... *Spoilers*

Same characters, same personalities, same weapons, same setting, same amount of glorious ecchi-ness. It is literally scary how similar they are.

At an academy where teenagers use their magical abilities to duel each other in massive arenas for rewards. An amazingly talented but horribly underestimated swordsman accidently barged into a room with a pink haired, tsundere, princess from foreign nation changing out of her clothes. The princess gets really pissed off and challenges the swordsman to a duel. Despite the princess having amazing skills using fire, she underestimates her opponent and loses the duel. To add insult to injury, she falls in love with him in the process.

^The summary of the first episode for both Rakudai Kishi No Cavalry and Gakusen Toshi Asterisk. THEY ARE THE SAME.

Though that isn't a bad thing as both of them are some of the best and most enjoyable anime to watch this season. Check'em out, you won't regret it.

I get the same feeling from The Asterisk War as I did on Irregular at Magic High School. Also the colors and animation are close. The Asterisk War takes place when a new student seems to be weak but is actually really strong like in The Irregular at Magic High School when the main character is a weed but is the strongest in the school.

Sinlessclown Sinlessclown says

BASICALLY, THE ASTERISK WAR IS THE SAME AS RAKUDAI KISHI NO CAVALRY.  RAKUDAI KISHI NO CAVALRY IS THE SAME AS IRREGULAR. HIGH SCHOOL SETTING, SOME SISTER PROBLEMS (KIND OF), MAGIC, FUTURISTIC AND PROTAGONIST IS OVERPOWERED BUT NOT RECOGONISED AT FIRST

Both titles have similiar story lines are very enjoyable. If you finished one of these titles and want something just like it here you go !!!! Fans of this genre shoudl definetly check this out.

There was a word limit so there's some random musing below feel free to ignore.

Asterisk War and Magic High School are alot alike but they do take you on different paths. Magic School felt alot more serious to me and didnt containt some the slice of life elements that ASterisk had. The main charcters are also different where Asterisk's is a your regular shy but enthusiastic guy , Magic Highschool is more stoic but seems to make all the girls fall in love with him..

Over time, he learns of her efforts to free her country from poverty and the Integrated Enterprise Foundation. Sensing a feeling from her similar to his missing sister, Ayato resolves to help Julis and challenge the Festa

meiyuzuki meiyuzuki says

They're both similar, however I have my issues with both of these anime series - SAO's beginning was so promising, and collapsed with Asuna's bad-assness disappearing. The Asterisk War, also promising, had just too much fanservice. SAO's second season started off strongly, then tapered off into a gross mess that I gave up on. I'm excited to see the second season of Asterisk!
