Walkure Romanze is a echii , harem , romance anime , al least thats what they say but couldn't find any of them. No much echii. Ok let me ask what echii do you expect from an horse riding anime. Well its obviously hot girls in sexy suits but it even failed in them. Atleast they could have developed nice harem but they failed in it too. Its just a bunch of girls asking a boy to become their begleiter or an assistant who gives tactics and tips to the actual jouster. And no absolute romance, just no! Ok i understand this anime is made by the 8-bit studios who also made Infinite stratos , which is one of my favourite harem anime. And i expected the same kind of harem on this anime too. Ok enough blabbing and lets go to the plus points in this anime. Animation and sound was great , just great! They Did a good job in making the 3-D movements of the horses and the shaders. I could hardly believe that this anime was released in 2013. And the BGM was really good too. As expected from 8-bit studios. And looks like they ran out of time in the last episode because the 2-D animation of the last episode kinda sucked. Like really sucked.The story was soo forced , more forced than force applied on a baby on its way to be born. Just , it was so annoying like you would see how they had great characters , animation and sounds but they just ruined it with the story. The plot was good but the way they represented it was awful.The characters , i really liked the character designs. But about their involvement in the story..... i dont even know what to say. The way they represented the characters was so bad that i even forgot what they were supposed to do when i was in halfway. Some characters like Celia and the nurse weren't given enough attention which bothered me.Overall , this would have been an awesome anime only if they give enough attention for the story , other than that everything was great. I would recommend this if you have nothing else to watch or if you are bored of the normal echii and harem. I didn't hate it so much and if season 2 was released , i would give it a try , and you should too!
Walkure Romanze is about a male protagonist with past grand experiences and injury with Jousting sport in a school environment. The story involves the male protagonist getting new experiences in jousting by being and getting friends with several girls from his school. Review Conclution Walkure Romanze makes you feel good if you set yourself as the protagonist's view as an experienced "knight" of Jousting. Gives you excitement when the protagonist's "harem" girls are helped by the protagonist for Jousting or when the girls realizes the protagonist's experience of Jousting. The story makes you feel good but no attachment to the characters in the story. The anime have a great focus on the protagonist and some character development with the "harem" girls but lacked some deeper meaning between the characters to relate to them and find an attachment to them more than Jousting. Therefore I give Walkure Romanze 6,5 out of 10 as it's not something complete in my view of a romance story when you want to relate to the characters and them fall in love but made me feel good for the moment. In-Depth Review When I rate an anime I focus on how the story is presented and what content it has compared to what I want. Yes it is dependent on what I know and experienced from before but it is like that with all knowledge in the world so let's start this. How is the story presented to the watcher? The animation was fluid and sound was crisp for what the anime was focused on to present. No music that was noticable. All in my view that was there that give me excitement during or for Jousting events. How was the content? As the anime had some start of romance between Mio and Takahiro it barely led to something deeper between them. All the other girls just admired Takahiro even though admiration is a part of love they didn't know Takahiro as well as Mio did and therefore didn't see his "weaknesses" over all to really admire a Takahiro despite flaws as it is my definition of love. Harem was there if you define it as girls admireing the protagonist so it was nothing wrong per say but when it's only 12 episodes and it is a "romance" anime then much is focused to get some sort of personality about the multiple girls and it takes away much that could give the story a romance between the protagonist and a girl or fewer "harem" girls. As far as Ecchi goes in the story then it was great as it held a minimum of it as it was not making the protagonist act like a perv so I could relate to him more. Example was the episode that had the main content as ecchi while making one of the girls being able to be with one of the other girl in a less dreamy mind while yes the protagonist finally ended to meet them it gave nothing between him and the girls over all other than he knew how to make an explosion from something unusual. The episode could just make the girl dreaming girl less dreamy by making the protagonist be the more elemnt of her dreams etc but focused on the ecchi stuff and content between them instead. Sports was the main focus and Walkure Romanze shined in it. Even though the content were not that precise with real life jousting they picked great content from it and made it exciting. School Life was a bare minimum like the Ecchi, Romance. The only thing that really related to it was the theme with it as the jousting and the characters were restricted by it outside of the class hours that was barely shown in the story. Example: The "Teacher" that was most in the story only in my memory was shown working in a bar or kitchen at the resident & restaurant building. The protagonist barely changed as a person during the story and his goal/values was really foggy except when he agreed with the girls at times. The character/protagonist focus was great but I wished it could be more focus on the romance and character progression between the girls or girl and the protagonist. Therefore I rated 6,5 out of 10 as I seeked more relation and character development for Romance but was great for momentarily excitement of the sport Jousting.
This may contain spoilers Overall: 7 I won't say I enjoyed watching this, but I liked it. What you would expect from any generic harem anime. Which isn't always a bad thing. Humor is a little forced in my opinion. If you want to watch this, its ok but don't expect anything new other than the jousting theme. I enjoyed it to the point that I finished it, which I usually don't do for bad shows. Story: 6 The story revolves around jousting and a summer tournament that is held for the knights of Winford Academy to participate in. Students prepare themselves and train hard to compete in this important event. Pretty unique anime, since jousting is not a sport that many are aquainted with. There is enough jousting vocabulary and aspects of jousting that shows that the creator or creators of this anime did thorough research on the topic and it shows when watching it. It does fall short on showing a serious side of jousting by adding cliche girls into the mix. The main focus of the story is the relationship between the MC (Takahiro-kun) and a handful of female knights. Most of which, want him to be their begleiter (an assisant). I picked up on that halfway through the show. But he doesn't make any decision about that until later in the show. But with the forced humor and side stories, I couldn't find myself enjoying the story too much. There was a lot of date-like scenes and side stories that you almost forget about what the main story was about. There is also a couple of ecchi scenes sprinkled through the show. Animation: 8 Nothing really to say here. The jousting bits were good to watch and the rest of the animation was decent. Also pretty scenery if you like that stuff. Sound: 6 You can really get a western vibe here. By that I mean it feels like it was medival-ish or jousting-ish. I don't know what I'm talking about here but all you need to know is that it suits the anime and style. Gave the sound an 8 at first then I remembered the orgasmic sounds some of the girls made. Characters: 6 I found some of the characters a little annoying.The girls were kind of cliche (adapted from a visual novel so I will let that slide) and the protagonist was super bland (again, letting it slide). MC is a guy that cannot make up his mind. He starts out looking to be a begleiter (an assistant), becomes one for a short period of time, then struggles afterwards with the choice of either being a knight again or becoming a begleiter because he thinks an injury from a couple of years ago won't let him (the doctor even said he was fine). What I expect from a run-of-the-mill MC. The girls were cliche but cute. Found myself liking some of the girls. Not gonna go into detail into the girls since this is a harem anime and I'm too lazy to wirte about or remember each of the girl's traits. Secret Santa Review
