Eight words describe the feelings of Youtarou Hanabusa: "I just want to live a normal life." Unfortunately for him, as a member of the Knights of the World, his training in this ancient and international order has left him with a condition he calls "White Knight Syndrome." This condition causes Youtarou to instinctively act heroically and chivalrously whenever he encounters someone in danger.

To protect his identity in such embarrassing moments, he carries a mask with him at all times. Then one day, he saves the life of Makio Kidouin, the young daughter of an elite and affluent family. Little does he know that this singular act of heroism will change his life forever. Soon, he is simultaneously blessed with a life in the lap of luxury and cursed with one of abnormality, for his new friend Makio lives a life far removed from the everyday.

Between coping with the hijinks of six-year-old Makio, and dealing with a cast of odd friends and scheming enemies, Youtarou must protect his new friend while keeping his identity hidden as the masked hero Knight Lancer.

As you can probably tell from the rating, I absolutely despised this anime. There isn't a single redeemable quality about it. I do not recommend this anime to anyone.

Story: 2
The story is very simple, the protagonist has White Knight Syndrome, and he's a Knight. How very convenient. the rest of the story consists of saving the same 3 people over, and over. getting kidnapped over and over, and gaining protagonist powers due to the plot.

Art: 2
The adults are lolis, the horse is a loli, the lolis are lolis. Oh, and there is also the background which looks okay, the style didn't appeal to me.

Sound: 3

Lance N' Masques is not a series for everyone. In particular, if you are someone who needs their anime to be heavily realistic, or full of grit, or to have some deep message to it, then you might as well just close this page now and walk away as this anime won't satisfy you in the slightest.

If, on the other hand, you are after a fun and quirky series, that mixes together a fairly large number of genres in a way that still feels comfortable, then this might just be what you are after.

There are many different ways of interpreting and watching this series, but read more

I looked at the other reviews and was surprised at some peoples perspectives, and then in agreement with others. So allow me to shove my bias opinion down your throat.
First off, this show is bad, like really bad. A lack of interesting characters, a simplistic story which jumps all over the place and lacks an over-arching story/goal, cookie cutter characters who face “wavering” in their ideals yet never show any character development as result, boring art style; all in all it makes for a boring and uninteresting show. If you can complement this show on anything it would be the music. While not amazing it read more

This was an anime that took by surprise because I wasn’t planning on watching it till I saw it’s name on the list. Well you had two things that catch my eye in the title Lance (I love weapons) and Masques (I blame this one on Kamen Rider and super heroes lol.) So basically it had enough interest to draw me to it. This was something else, it had a lot of weird moments that I wasn’t sure what they were doing but those moments reminded me of some friends I had so they turned those weird things into part of it’s charm. Honestly I read more
