Chivalry of a Failed Knight is an anime series created by Silver Link and based on a light novel series written by Riku Misora and illustrated by Won. The show first aired on October 3, 2015, and ran for 12 episodes. It is licensed by Sentai Filmworks and is available for streaming on Crunchyroll.

The show takes place in an alternate universe, where certain individuals possess supernatural abilities known as "Blazers." These Blazers can manifest magical weapons and use them to battle other Blazers. They attend Hagun Academy, a specialized school designed to train Blazers to become knights and serve as protectors of society.

The story follows Ikki Kurogane, a failed knight who is constantly ridiculed for his lack of magical ability despite his strong physical skills. Due to his poor reputation, Ikki is given a single-room apartment on campus, but to his surprise, he discovers that he has a roommate, Stella Vermillion, a powerful princess from a foreign country who is considered a genius among Blazers.

At first, Ikki and Stella are at odds and engage in a heated rivalry, but they soon realize that they can achieve great things by working together. The two form a partnership and decide to compete in the upcoming Seven Star Sword Art Festival, a competition where Blazers compete to become the strongest knight in the academy.

Throughout the series, Ikki and Stella face various challenges and obstacles as they work towards achieving their goal. They encounter other Blazers and engage in battles, including a team battle where they must work with other knights to defeat a common enemy.

One aspect of the show that sets it apart from other anime is the focus on character development. Ikki's struggles with his perceived failure and his desire to prove himself as a knight are explored in-depth, as are Stella's insecurities and her desire to gain the acceptance of her father. The supporting characters are also given their own backstories and motivations, making them more than just one-dimensional caricatures.

Another aspect of the show that is noteworthy is its portrayal of romance. While Ikki and Stella's relationship starts off with a rocky start, their partnership soon turns into a genuine friendship and then a romantic relationship. The show does not rely on tired anime tropes such as harems or love triangles, but instead focuses on the development of Ikki and Stella's relationship in a realistic and satisfying manner.

The animation of Chivalry of a Failed Knight is impressive, with detailed character designs and fluid action sequences that make the battles between Blazers exciting to watch. The soundtrack is also noteworthy, with a mix of orchestral and rock music that adds to the overall atmosphere of the show.

Overall, Chivalry of a Failed Knight is a well-crafted anime series that blends action, romance, and character development in a satisfying manner. It is a must-watch for fans of the genre, and is sure to entertain both casual viewers and hardcore anime fans alike.

Chivalry of a Failed Knight is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on October 3, 2015.
