For Ikki Kurogane, graduating as a Magical Knight is nigh impossible. Among Blazers, he’s considered the worst; he can materialize his soul into a weapon, but his magical power is extremely low. To add insult to injury, an unfortunate encounter with the talented and beautiful Princess Stella Vermillion slashes his already slim odds and alters the course of his life forever.

My Rating: 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡
I LOVED IT! I was balling like a little baby towards the end, wholly engrossed in the story, so much so that my big brother scared the shit out of me (I had my headphones on) by asking me if I was OK. I just grabbed him and pointed at the screen.
He then rolled his eyes and walked off, dragging me and my wheeled chair with him. 😅
Such a good anime. It had me completely in my feelings. I went through all of them during the course of this way too short series: I laughed (mainly at the interactions between Stella Vermillion, the main character Ikki Kurogane’s love interest, and his little sister Shizuku Kurogane), I cried, I cursed at the TV, I cheered, my charred little black heart broke, it repaired itself again cause Wolverine-like regeneration, and then I cried some more…
I’ll write it again: I love this anime. It has heart. It also has awesomely animated action sequences, and a beautiful artistic style (especially towards the end, when things get really serious). More than any of these things though, it is a good story. That is so hard to come across these days.
This is another anime that snuck up on me. I didn’t think I would like it because, even though it is rated MA, it has very little ecchi, harem, or fanservice elements to it. Despite not having those things, I fell deeply in love. There needs to be a season two of this. Where’s change.org when you really need them?!
