Youtarou Hanabusa is a Knight of the World, an order of knights active in the present time, whose job it is to aid those in need. Whenever someone cries out for help, Youtarou will be there! As the hero Knight Lancer, Youtarou dons a cape and mask, and wields an impressively powerful lance. His intentions might be noble, but a knight kissing ladies’ hands in the 21st century can come across as just a bit strange…
Youtarou just can’t help himself. He has what he calls White Knight Syndrome: whenever someone is in need, his body reacts automatically in a “knight-like manner.” His fighting abilities and kindness are put to the test when he saves the young Makio Kidouin. Youtarou discovers that Makio is the only daughter of a wealthy family, and lives alone in the care of a group of maids.
All Youtarou wanted was to leave his knighthood behind and start a normal life. But when he decides to take Makio under his wing, he becomes involved in something much bigger than him. Now Youtarou must defend Makio, without giving away the secret identity of the Knight Lancer she idolizes.
Lance N’ Masques is a pg13 Harem anime. Its set in a fantasy world about a boy that believes he’s a knight and been training to be one. I’m gonna try my best not to trash this anime since the fight scenes were okay… and everything else wasn’t. Ops did I already trash it? 😛
So the story of the anime was a bit lame… or let me say childish. Same goes for everything else in the anime even the side stories were childish. There was some comedy attempts there, wasn’t there best idea. The anime wont cut it for its humor. The soundtrack was bad.. and the animation was horrible. I kept watching the anime just to see how it will end. The ending sucks. Its not worth it.
Overall Rate: 3/10

I kind of enjoyed Lance n Masques but probably because I went in expecting it to be much much worse and was pleasantly surprised that it was generic and dull but not unwatchable. Childish is a good description for a lot of it and that’s probably what they were aiming for given the characters spend a lot of time trying to cheer up the young girl (can’t remember her name).
Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the comment. Yes its true.
