    The story revolves around Eru, a mecha otaku in his previous life, who is reincarnated into another world where 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. The project is an adaptation of the light novel series by Hisago Amazake-no. The material was originally a web manga and also has a manga adaptation published by Square Enix.

    This is fun :)

    Though the main guy reminds me of the
    crossdresser in hundred and the crossdresser in gunslinger stratos at least i think it was gunslinger stratos - a mech suit ecchi anime where a high princess type was undercover as a guy but got "exposed" eventually just like the one in hundred - ie the main character in knights and magic definitely has feminine features and was already mistaken for a girl, at least at the really young age - ha it was actually infinite stratos i was thinking of, gunslinger stratos was a different series.

    I love the background that he's a programmer. I actually recognized that it was a script at least in the opening :D void update and all that :) :) cool that i can recognize that after starting my game programming :)

    Just watched episode 1 (first episode just got dubbed by funimation) of this show and it got me really excited, one of the best first episodes ive seen in an anime. Up there with stuff like MHA, Seraph of the end and Akame ga kill. Definitely looking forward to more of this show.

    Just watched episode 2 dubbed and it was very good, loved that there was still strategy involved instead of just the MC being overpowered. Was also really cool showing the limitations of the robot he was in because of basicly overclocking the machine. Definitely a great show so far and probably my second favourite new show this season behind Gamers.

    This is great fun. Only trouble is it goes too fast!

    And now

    a challenger to ernie. That guy is fun let me see it!

    I just wish the pacing was a little slower. The fun stuff is great but it goes by too quick. I guess the build up isnt quite right. But i still enjoy it.

    This was a fun series.

    The action was great and the characters were fun.

    My only complaint still remains the pacing. The damn thing is too fast! Its like they crammed thirty six episodes into a 12 episode season (13 actually).

    Ok its not that extreme but still theyd do time jumps like mad. And the battles were fun but not totally tense. Since its so fast some of the drama is lacking.

    But i still enjoyed it. Its a super geek dream come true. If you love mecha this is a must watch!
