    About As Unique As A Brick
    The characters are generic as well as the story. The attempts at humor were pathetic to say the least. The show is clearly setting itself later for a loli-harem situation which is not conducive to good storytelling. The animation quality is absolutely dreadful, and would be considered dated in 2004. Overall, I feel that this show is not worth the time of any serious anime fan.

    Good Fun, Not Unique
    You know, it's a good story as far as the first episode. Knight guy goes around saving all the ladies. Will it be a cheap harem anime? Probably. Will the story ever be deep? Probably not. Will you laugh? I don't know about you, but I sure did. It's not some special snowflake of an anime, but it is fun.

    Cheesy, Trite, and nothing new to offer
    Unfortunately, this anime just follows in the footsteps of the white knight/harem anime theme. There is nothing really new or interesting regarding the characters or the story. If you're into underage girl harem anime, then you might enjoy this, otherwise I would suggest spending your time watching something else.

    Shaky at first, but don't be fooled its good
    I can sort of understand why it got some bad reviews. I watched the first episode and half of the 2nd, and stopped. Just by chance I came back to watch a few more episodes. Glad I did. It surprised me, it really gets better with each episode. If you were hasty and stopped after one or two episodes like me, jump back in and catch up. If your just starting it, stick with it until at least the 6th. ...

    The boy, the girl, and a world of knights
    The boy is a knight, the girl is fascinated by heroes. Set in a modern world setting the Knights of the World act as an autonomous power of "Justice" (but as we all know most of the time that on the surface and there's always something else going on.) Yotaro is an unmotivated knight who just wants to live a normal life, but can help but use his training and skills to help the damsel in distress, ...

    Self Aware Magical Lancers
    Firstly, at no point is this show trying to establish itself beyond entertainment. The main character left his Knightly upbringing to be a normal kid but finds his white knight syndrome to be soo over powering he rushes to the screams of every damsel in distress.

    Some like the chivalrous approach, some think he's a pervert in a mask. This rings true especially for the girls he befriends ...

    First episode was ok, reminds me of tuxedo mask! lol
    A knight (teen) that seems determine to not become what his dad is, a hero. Even though when he sees a girl in danger he reacts and comes to their rescue every single time. Reminds be a little of tuxedo mask from Sailor moon. Anyways rule of three i give this.

  • Okay, I guess? Fun but forgettable.
    Lance N' Masques is a somewhat competent, character driven anime but falls short in several regards. The shows identity suffers from trying to do many things but not succeeding completely, it attempts to use elements of harem, romance, action, and mystery genres but without proper dedication and development. Most of the time I felt that characters were going through the motions without any real ...

  • Interesting Premise; Somewhat Cliche
    I initially checked out Lance N' Masques because I love the concept of knights and people wearing masks. While this series did indeed having both those things, it also had a few things I didn't enjoy.
    Being that this is a light novel adaptation, it's a harem series with a main character who isn't always the most interesting person in the world. Yotaro did have an interesting background, but I ...

    Give it a chance people :)
    Alright, so i know there are a lot of bad reviews kinda right. Well, give this a chance okay. This is a weird anime that has this feel like it should be for kids, but at the same time grownups can watch it to. The art style looks like someone in middle school/a child made it and the story is something a kid thought up, but its nice and i enjoyed ever minute of it. im still waiting for more...if ...
