Average Rating

There exist few humans in this world with the ability to manipulate their souls to form powerful weapons. Dubbed "Blazers," these people study and train at the prestigious Hagun Academy to become Mage-Knights; among the students is so-called failure Ikki Kurogane, the sole F-rated Blazer. However, when the worst student in the academy sees Stella Vermillion, an A-ranked Blazer who also happens to be a princess, naked, she challenges him to a duel with dire stakes—the loser becomes the slave of the winner. There’s no possible way that Stella can lose, right? Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry follows the story of Ikki as he tries to prove his strength to a world that believes him to be the weakest, all the while gaining new friends, wisdom, and experience.

The best show of it’s genre by far


Better than asterisk war


A title that isn’t anything special but is unfairly judged simply due to other shows of the same vain.


After looking past the fan service you will find a very good sword play story. Good characters. Good fight scenes. It’s a ‘Good’ anime.


This show has no right being as good as it is. Actual meaningful relationship development, and it isn’t a harem.


Definitely watch this show if you like ecchi, romance, and sword fighting. Lots of good fight scenes and a good finale.


It’s better than most would expect, but I’ve seen better battle academy. MC picks a girl and sticks with it. Katana kendo bitch is sexy.
