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.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
Beginning of a story like many anime echi, we freshened up with some scene of a figure of the man who met with a woman in the forest. If you look at heroin shaped Chibi kinda looks cute. Maybe for you guys chibi character enthusiasts will love this anime.

For the story, arguably not so bad.

For Scenery, I think is pretty good. with lots of colorful decorate the landscape.

For sound, standard, but there is some tone that I think is good and suitable to go with a scene.

For characters, probably just the only female character that I think is interesting.

I feel a bit lack ...
