The first compiled volume of Knight's & Magic's manga adaptation, which will be released on September 24, will announce that the light novel series will be getting a TV anime adaptation.

Knight's & Magic is written by Hisago Amazake-no and illustrated by Kurogin, and was initially published on the Shousetsu-ka ni Narou website in October 2010. It began publishing under the Hero Bunko label in January 2013 and is currently ongoing with six volumes released. It was placed 6th under the New Works category in the 2014 Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi rankings. The manga adaptation by Takuji Katou began its serialization in April 2016 in Young Gangan.

Synopsis
A mecha otaku is reincarnated into another world as Ernesti Echevarria, also known as Eru. In this world, huge humanoid weapons known as Silhouette Knights exist. Dreaming of piloting those robots, Eru and his friends, Archid Olter and Adeltrud Olter, aim to become Knight Runners.

Sounds promising but cant help but be kinda reminded of Hundred just that it has no harem,romance tags. With the whole mecha and knights thing.
Oh well did anyone read the novel and can perhaps share bit of info as to how the characters and the story is? :)

When's the last time we got to see some actual good mechs? That Gundam series perhaps? You know, the one with the orphans.

This one's literally screaming "shitty LN adaption" therefore it's a big no-no for me.

iron blooded orphans has potential to be really good as long as the 2nd half doesnt shit the bed, fafner exodus was outstanding and one of the best mecha shows for me, concrete revolutio is criminally underrated though theres only a few mech fights.

the genre is still in a weak state but its at least heading in the right direction. Bones apparently has a mecha original coming out next year so we will at least get some nice 2D mechs to gawk at (hopefully with writing drastically better than captain arse), and full metal panic is hopefully gonna come out soon.

this show just sounds lame

"Good" as in nimated? Regalia had pretty well animated ones, Gundam Thunderbolt was also after IBO and those were even better. If you get a couple good looking mecha shows a year it's already good.

This can be Escaflowme tier or typical LN ISEKAI tier.

@JizzyHitler
I think Fafner was pretty underrated too, Exodus was awesome.

its kind of the fault of the 1st season being so flawed and really not picking up until the 2nd half, exodus was everything the original wished it were and i think it is one of the finest mecha series around. Shame barely anyone in the west has watched it but at least its big in japan

Reincarnation is such cliché and overused but atleast it's about mecha this time so I guess it will be enough for me to check it out atleast. Hopefully they are not in shitty CGI...

Hmmm the MC seems pretty decent then, hope the action stuff and story progress will be interesting enough^^

Killed? I hope we get some more of them in the future instead of fujoshi trash and boring sports dramas.

well from the synopsis above it's definitely cliche. but i think this one has a creative concept because it's combining robot and magic (that's right robot use magic). but i also worried about the CGI if it got gundam treatment then it's good.

Yeah, this sounds as uncreative as it can get, and not just because of that title.

Youjo Senki and Honzuki no gekokujou are both examples of good stories with a reincarnated MC. Like in any genre of literature , it's more about taking the time to pick than anything else.

I don't know about that one tho. Never heard about it~

Just me or does the MC look like a trap?

Well in any case doesn't sound like anything very original at least so I think I'll skip it

I was wondering about that too. After checking, it seems that he's just having a feminine appearance, but it's neither used as trap or reverse trap.

yeah, I lowkey hoped that Konosuba and Re:zero would be failures, so that Isekai wouldnt get too popular, but oh well most LN fads don't last much longer than 2-3 years. Anyways, mecha + isekai + shota MC are like my least favorite things, so I'm probably skipping this.

Crinnnnnnnnnnnnge.

This, people. Stuff like this is the reason every single LN adaptation gets treated like...well....an LN adaption.

Because for every single good one, there's like hundreds of things like...this. At least try to hide what a typical LN nonsense this is by pretending it is "deconstruction" for first half of the story, geez.

LN titles have nothing to do with authors.
Publishers want "clear and non-confusing" titles that "tell the reader exactly what it is".
Hence why you have shitloads of "How I/How to ..." and "... and ..." kind of uncreative titles in the ln market. In fact, anything with a less "obvious title" actually tends to sell worse, because japanese buyers ignore it.

I was expecting a lot of salt on this thread but it seems its more than my expectations.

That being said ugh, out of all the LN they had to pick this one up. Like seriously? I'm thinking maybe Silver Link or J.C. Staff is going to do this one, probably after they saw how successful KonoSuba and Re Zero is. I swear this adaptation will crash and burn though.... Some LNs are better left un-adapted....

Welp, it'll definitely get popular anyway, and will definitely be a good material for people to wage hate/love war on this one. Will probably skim watch this just to see the designs, if it's even a good adaptation that is....
Never judge an anime by it's cover/genre/setting/hype.

I wouldn't be surprised if these get anime in the future, Death March being very likely.
