In the name of the king, the Valiante Kingdom launched hunts to exterminate users of witchcraft. Seventeen years later, their pursuit is still growing in both size and brutality. Unbeknownst to the citizens, the targets of these witch hunts are the secret protectors of humanity. Known as the Makai Knights and Alchemists, they have a strong will to protect people from Horrors, demons who possess souls plagued by sadness and pain.

One such Makai Knight is 17-year-old Leon Luis who inherits the legendary armor of the Golden Knight Garo from his mother. Though he possesses great power, he struggles to overcome the hatred he bears from his mother's death at the hands of the kingdom. His father German, known as Zoro the Shadow Cutting Knight, is still training Leon when he is called to investigate the upsurge of Horrors in the kingdom's capital. Although German knows Leon's will is wavering, he decides to bring Leon along to continue his training.

As German and Leon head to the capital, the king's amiable son Alfonso San Valiante struggles to find a solution to the growing Horror threat. But before he can do so, he is double-crossed and banished from his own kingdom. To return home, Alfonso sets out to find the help and strength he needs to reclaim the throne. During his search, he comes across Leon, whose interactions with the prince will forever change both of their fates.

I usually don't write reviews about anime that are like this (i.e. old, and not seasonal), but I felt like I had to make an exception here due to my ambivalent feelings about this anime. My basic thoughts on this anime are: a little good art never killed nobody.

Honestly, the story is good enough. The setting is idyllic and rustic, and gives off a medieval vibe throughout. The names seems to hint at the location being in Spain, which is a welcome change for an anime. The premise, although not entirely believable, is good enough and the sort of twisting of the witch ...

Mixed Feelings
The anime reminds me of the Bruce Springsteen song "Blinded by the Light" (1973) and I don't mean that in a positive way. However, as a spin-off from the live-action series, the anime is not convincing as it takes a different direction than the source material. At best, action fans will enjoy the short CG-enhanced combat spectacles and overlook the fact that the anime as a whole is simply much ado about nothing.

Story: Not bad, but too predictable & uninspired, doesn't hit the right tone for the target group (5/10)
The story opens with a scene that feels like a glimpse into the darkest chapter of ...

Spoilers Sorry.

Score: 4/10

The Mecha screams gave my ears cancer. And the lighting in fight scenes is worse than old DC movies. Such a good base for a story destroyed by weak characters and anime post-production.

1. The villain gets stripped of his ranks for breaking the Makai codes and becomes even more powerful #facepalm.

2. Queen gets framed by the court advisor. for real?
