Walkure Romanze

What in the hell is going on!? Why is Walkure Romanze receiving so much criticism? I actually thought that it was a decent show. Sure, the concept doesn’t get your blood boiling, but it’s still pretty good.

Walkure RomanzeI really think the characters look great. They may not have a lot of unique features, but I like what I saw. There’s a slight hint of ecchi mixed in, but it’s done ever so subtly. The backgrounds look very detailed. I’m overall satisfied by what I’ve seen here.

I think the story is quite interesting. I wouldn’t mind watching a jousting show with a lot of cute girls. It’s pretty new and it’s not a milked-out idea that I’ve seen plenty of times before in different ways. I’m actually curious about what’s going to happen next.

Romance and Harem fans are going to like this a lot. I honestly don’t understand why it’s receiving so much criticism, but I do think it’s worth a shot. Just watch the first episode and see what you think of it. I liked what I saw.

Plot Summary: Walkure Romanze’s story revolves around Takahiro Mizuno, a student studying at an academy with jousting as its main focus for sport.
