In the latest issue of the game magazine "Tech Gian", it was announced that the adult visual novel "Walkure Romanze" will be adapted into a TV anime series for this fall. Cast and studio information has not been disclosed yet. The game was released in October 2011 by the company "Ricotta" whose previous game "Princess Lover!" was also adapted into a TV series in 2009. The game has already been adapted into a manga and novel, as well as a drama CD. Later this year a fan disc for the game, "Walkure Romanze: More & More", will also be released.

Synopsis of the story:

Takahiro Mizuno is a teenager who was called a genius for "jousting". However, in a jousting tournament he was injured badly and had to retire from the sport. He later became a "begleiter", an all-round assistant and advisor for "knights" who participate in jousting tournaments. In the grand tournament this year, he encounters all kinds of girls joining the competition and as a "begleiter", is going to help them gain victory.

Walkure Romanze on MAL
Modified by Naruleach, Jun 20, 2013 3:08 PM
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Taguchi Hiroko (Sora in Yosuga no Sora)
Nabatame Hitomi (Mana/Cure Heart in Doki Doki Precure; Saori in OreImo)

Yuzuki Ryouka (Hiratsuka Shizuku in OreGairu; Kuune in Nyaruko-san2)

Considering that elegant girls are usually portrayed as antagonists or ignorant brats, this anime is a welcome news for me. Now I have other elegant girls to watch in my wait for Kuroyukihime and S2 of Accel World.

I like trashy shows that try to play off a classy atmosphere.

You get the best of both worlds. It makes me want to buy a fedora and say "yes m'lady" to every woman I talk to.

Am I the only one who read this a thought "Well this sounds a lot like a hentai, especially with all the 'jousting' going on"? >.> Teenage boy humor I know, but I can't help it when "adult" is in the title.

Looks nice, I was planning on playng that one. Visual novel may be good, but I'm afraid that this one will turn out to be another harem trash.

I might watch this if it turns out decent

If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

What kind of delusional world you are living in? Ah, I know - it must be your own quota: You must love this kind of anime so much that this and White Album 2 this fall are not going to fulfill your need !!

I heard this light novel is more improve than princess lover but that was 2 years ago
The harem part might disappoint some people though

Ill keep a close watch on this since i haven't watch any elegant characters and their armor is really fancy but jousting might be interesting though

Meh. Might not watch. I doubt there will be any "adult content" in the adaptation anyways. Even though it is an adult VN. I remember Koi to Senkyo being the same. In any case, the plot and the characters are not really something special. Every first episode of an Anime is worth checking though.

Honestly not expecting much but I'm at least expecting some, if not a lot of ecchi.

/goes on site.
/game cg samples.

I hope there's a hentai OVA like how Princess Lover got one.

Im curious if they'll go down the Shuffle route where all girls feelings are made apparent but the guy ACTUALLY chooses one of them or a Yosuga no Sora / Amagami SS route where there are a couple of episodes for each heroine.

Or we could get trolled with what happened with Photokano where there's only one episode per girl -_-

I swear that some weeks ago I was randomly lurking at vndb to seek anything unique and I found a VN about jousting and elegant girls. "Well,this has a pretty unique theme", I said.

Never expect that it will be animated... especially THIS fast o_____o

btw,breastplate that following the curve of boobs like a tightsuit is (realistically) very dangerous, and not really appealing for me. Especially with THAT kind of BWH size. Glad that all the girls have different design of armor, the other armors are much better.

Did this have a manga? It looks familiar.

Oh well, I probably won't watch.

No-face-kun and his gaggle of bishoujos don't look all that exciting.

Interesting. Can you do one for harems? In the sense of 'a guy who is a around a bunch of girls and maybe a male friend or 2'. I'm curious to see it charted out over 3 years like that.

Looks pretty nice from the VN intro, as long as the main character picks a girl at the end then I will be a happy chap, inconclusive harem ends are the bane of my existence.

I'm not surprised. The game has tons of merchandise. Volks makes some nice figures (or kits) of the characters.

[bullshit]

And of course if you remove the ones that aren't traditional romances, you knock out a few more. Even adding otomege only adds 8 over 3 years.

Nice math.
Generic ecchi/harems: a lot more than that brah. Nice math indeed.

In my opinion, when it comes to visual novels, its either it comes out well or it comes out bad. Most harem like visual novels tend to be stronger when it either MC picks a path(e.g Clannad/Shuffle) or its Arc style with multiple endings. The 1 cour VN adaptions with a loose harem based ending is much more generic.
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

Hope the anime turns out well but the VN's artwork is simply gorgeous and the idea of jousting is interesting. Might give it a shot.

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.
