Episode 2 of Knight’s and Magic was, in my opinion, far better than the first episode. The pacing was a lot nicer, plus there was a big battle between giant robots and an enormous demon beast, which is always a plus. Once again, I was very impressed with how pretty the art and the animation is in this show. The CG used on the demon beast and the robots looks really nice as well.
In the first episode, we had some huge time-skips (6 years worth) for our characters to get to this battle. And it was cool enough to almost not disappoint. I still feel like we don’t really know our main cast hardly at all, which, in my opinion, is a detriment to the show. I would really like to see some more character development for the main cast, especially the 2 siblings. We also get a glimpse, this episode, into the beginnings of Ernesti’s harem, as the blonde chick and the female twin fight over him, and he pointedly ignores them both.
I’ll probably finish this show this season, it doesn’t seem like something i’ll drop. It might end up being one of those shows that I watch once and never look back and talk about it again, though, because at the moment i don’t feel like anything really makes it stand out that much.
Knight’s and Magic airs on Sundays, and you can watch it on Crunchyroll.
