Time of the SEASON Fall 2015 Edition: INTRO / Lances ‘N MASQUES

TOTSFall2015Hello, ladies and gentlemen of the internet. You wonder why you walked out of the house in a T-Shirt and shorts that you felt cold as hell?



After the awesomeness that was summer albeit learning about something about an anime studio that made shows I love especially last season going bankrupt…..

…actually, excuse me for a minute……

…..fuck it…….

OK, I’m done….

OK, the new season has arrived and it is filled with a ton of potential hits and we are starting off with this little appetizer…..

….which is based off a light novel….oh, and it’s been licensed by PONY CANYON USA, whose past shows this year they’ve licensed I hated.

Oh, god, I’m gonna be pissed again, aren’t I?

Anyway, this is Lance N’ Masques.

Plot Summary: Yōtarō Hanafusa is a young man who is part of the last remaining order of knights in the 21st century, “Knights of the World.” As he fights as the mysterious Knight Lancer, he must hide his identity behind a mask. One day he meets a girl named Makio Kidōin, and when finding that she lives alone, decides to watch over her.



First Thoughts: So……yeah, I don’t think this show has a plot or anything for me to give a damn about. So this guy Yotaro saves this little wealthy orphan girl from a fall and sees that she’s all alone (with a maid mind you) and he wants to do the noble thing and watch over her from….some things and you know what? I literally forgot about the episode even after watching it. Oh, there was some shit about him wanting to become a knight and all that but I didn’t seemed to care at this point. The comedy bits of it was forgetful and cringe-worthy especially coming from the maid about the guy wanting the girl for more and you know what MORE I’m talking about and no, I won’t go any further on that. They didn’t go for the high-fantasy spiel which is a good thing because we have too many of that shit recently but it doesn’t save this from being a dull, flat and uninteresting show and this makes STRIKE 3 for Pony Canyon USA since this year, they acquired nothing but lame shows since the Spring season. First, the KyoAni blandness that is Sound! Euphonium, then the lackluster quality of Rokka and now this!!
I’m not sticking enough for this shit. I’m DROPPING this show. This is not worth your time or quality.



And yes, this is the first show of the season to be dropped!!



Welp, hopefully more good shit should be on the way…this is MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid, and…..well….yeah, this show sucks.
