Impressions/Expectations

I just watched the PV, and if you are expecting anything other than ecchi harem nonsense, you're going to be disappointed. The jousting animation did catch my eye, however, so I'll probably give it a few episodes based on that alone. Keeping my expectations low as far as plot quality goes.

Excited for this :3

I usually enjoy visual novel adaptations but this better not go the route of Mashiroiro Symphony or tables will be flipped.

Harem end or bust!

I haven't seen a proper ecchi harem visual novel adaptation in so long. I'm super exited about this.

I expect many suggestive jousting jokes.

I'm not expecting much out of this one but will watch for the giggles. The concept of jousting did catch my interest though somewhat.

ep 1

I liked it but I can't shake the feeling like this will end up like Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! in terms of the lead and the "ending" he chooses.





good character designs for the girls and I actually grew to like Mio in this first episode

I did not expect much from this anime, but the first episode lived up to my expectations. I was hoping for more out of this, but I'm not going to drop it.

Episode 1

That was a pretty dull episode. Except a few of the action scenes, I found it to be cliched and makes almost little sense in terms of jousting. And yes, I think this is a harem anime with fan service so there will be relationships forming most likely. The main girl Mio is already in love with the guy anyways by the looks of it.

I'm kinda interested in this girl though:


Probably a prominent character with elite skills.

MY FIRST IMPRESSION

Nice to see an anime take on a different story around jousting! Yes there are the girls and fanservice but the animation is nice!The horse Sakura is interesting LOL And there seems to be a girl Mio who needs to be trained after Sakura went wild and got her into a dual.I enjoyed it and will continue to follow.I say it's along The lines of "A Knights Tale"

Sakura the skirt eating horse! School uniforms and female knights... will give it a few more episodes anyways. Hard to tell if this is just romance with a jousting background or what.

Well this is certainly something different. Jousting school girls.

Seeing all these pretty girls in armor and riding horses is taking me back to Fire Emblem: Awakening just a tiny it(just from a character design standpoint).

She is super elite, the best and expected winner so she surely will be prominent sidekick of the MCs. Both she and anime fits that trope perfectly

Haha. I just thought that especially in jousting that "breast plate" would be extremely dangerous in real life.

My first thought was that the animation is really pretty, especially the jousting.

Other than that, Mio is even dumber than the guy, which is nice for once in a harem anime, I guess. Not very impressive stuff though. Probably a drop.

There were a lot of facepalm moments in that one episode. Not a good sign.

It actually surprises me a bit that this is based on an eroge, since the first episode focused so much on Mio. If not for the panty shots (and the character designs) I almost would've mistaken this for a shoujo sports series.

I'm not sure about this show; its possible the characters may be too dumb to make for an entertaining show. I swear, the number of "hilarious" misunderstandings in this episode was ridiculous.

a dense guy, a pink haired ditz, a blonde elite, a silver-haired loli........ I feel like I've been here before.
