I am a knight. To be precise, I am the Church of the God of Light’s Sun Knight.

The Church of the God of Light worships and serves the God of Light, and theirs is one of the three largest religions on this continent.

As the whole continent knows, the Church of the God of Light has twelve holy knights and each one has his own unique personality and features.

To be the Sun Knight is to have shining golden hair, sky blue eyes, a compassionate nature, and a brilliant smile.

“The benevolent God of Light will forgive your sins.”

I must have said that line at least a million times in my time as the Sun Knight.

However, the greatest wish in my life is to be able to stand before the entire continent and roar, “Damn your ‘the whole continent knows’! This Sun Knight just doesn’t feel like smiling! I just don’t want to forgive these human trashes! I just want to pepper my sentences with ‘f***’!”

Unfortunately, even to this day, I continue to wear a smile as I say, “The benevolent God of Light will forgive your sins.”

Basically, Legend of the Sun Knight is a story that reveals the secret daily life of being a Holy Knight. The funniest thing about the Holy Knights is that, all 12 of them have their own 'predestined' character which they have to uphold in front of people. For example, the Sun Knight SHOULD BE compassionate, sympathetic, always smiling, elegant, has blond hair, blue eyes and fair skin. But in truth, except for the point regarding his appearance, the Sun Knight is the exact opposite of all the attributes. Using the first person narrative, the novel and the manhwa give readers access to the Sun Knight's read more

Before you read this review, you should know that the English translation has only covered up to volume 6 out of 8 volumes. The translators is still working on the text, and not likely to finish very soon. With that in mind, go ahead and stop reading this review or save it for a later date (if you aren't fluent in Chinese, that is).

The setup of the story is much like other Chinese (internet) fantasy novels, with multitudes of races, weapons, and classes that we are familiar with from games and high fantasy. However, this novel really stands apart from the typical ones. This isn't read more

I encountered this novel right after I finished reading the novel counterpart of 1/2 Prince manhua (at www.princerevolution.org). And I started reading it, and all hail, I liked it! The story is different from what I usually read, the typical shojo mangas... but I was surprised when I was hooked by this story until I can't get enough!

This is freakin' hilarious. So if you want to laugh, go read this one. The main character, the Sun Knight, has this split personality (the one he IS required to do and say being the Sun Knight, and his hidden personality, the one he truly feels). Because of read more

The sun knight is a forgiving person (as the continent knows)but the truth is he is not. His smile may looked dazzling to you but who knows ? he might be trying to think of ways to get rid of you.

the other knights have their own likable personalities .

Why is my rating 10?

-Because it is so funny especially the sun knight
-Creus/Grishia is a powerful magician but doesn't know how to use a sword even thought he's a knight.
-All the characters have their own looks and personalities and their names are easy to remember ex. Sun, Storm, Judge
- the characters are all cute cool and funny
-their read more

Manga: ½ Prince
Half Prince is written by the same author. The sarcastic humour is very similar and it also has a lot of adventure.

Manga: ½ Prince
Both the Legend of the Sun Knight and 1/2 Prince are written by the same author, Yu Wo. Plus, both are funny and have gags that will truly make you laugh.

Though, that is the only similarity, the comedy factor.
Plot wise, they are very much different for 1/2 Prince involves Virtual Gaming (where we can encounter the same terms in LSK like mages, warriors, elves, among others.)

Manga: No Hero
Whereas No Hero tells of the hidden dark side of heroes, The Legend of Sun Knight tells about the hidden dark side of knights. Both series, written by Yu Wo, feature unique and interesting protagonists and serious, fantasy-like stories with many comical scenes. There is plenty of drama and action in both series, and the characters (even minor ones) are so well developed that you can't help but adore and empathize with them.

Manga: Eclipse Hunter
If you enjoyed Eclipse Hunter, then I recommend Legend of Sun Knight! They were both written by the same author, Yu Wo. Both Eclipse Hunter and Legend of Sun Knight have lots of comedy but can also be serious when the time comes to it. Although both are written in a fictional way, Eclipse Hunter is more SciFi and Legend of Sun Knight is more fantasy. So if you enjoy fantasy, magic, demons, and dragons as well as comedy and action, Legend of Sun Knight is a good novel to read!
