Yo! We’re back with another installment of Anime REvisited with our pick; Chivalry of a Failed Knight! It’s episode three so let’s get right to it!
So the episode opens up with Ikki and Stella having a sparring match, and so far they’re both vastly improving to get ready for their upcoming matches. With the weekend already here Stella bashfully asks Ikki if he would accompany her on a date – at least that’s what she’s trying to make it sound like without sounding too obvious. There is one small detail that she forgot to take into account; Shizuku. With her around there was no way in hell Stella would get the chance to be alone with Ikki.
Surely enough Ikki, Stella, and Shizuku along with Alice head to the mall in Japan; as the antics between Shizuku and Stella continue between them. Little did they know there’s trouble afoot; as a rouge Blazer named Bishou has taken over the mall with his gang of low-lifes, and holds the people of the mall hostage. Anyone who has seen this scene play out in an anime title such as this knows just how the story ends; with the bad guys getting the snot beaten out of them. Although things looked pretty rough for the moment and it looked like Bishou and his gang was going to win, out comes Ikki from above as he slashes off the right arm of the villain; preventing him from using his blazer. The battle seemed like it was over until Bishou pulled a last-minute trick up his sleeve, and had another member of his gang hide among the hostages pretending she was one.
Then out of nowhere another Blazer appears and kills the female gang member, as he approaches Ikki and a semi-naked Stella – who regains her clothes thanks to Shizuku. Outside of the mall a small group of released hostages crowd around the Blazer by the name of Kirihara, who has some history with Ikki – and has been issued to be his next opponent in one of the battles he’ll be fighting in along with the other students. Stella defends Ikki by telling Kirihara that he’ll win, but…does Ikki think he’ll win?
Since episode one we’ve seen what Ikki can do, so it was only going to be a matter of time until we see what Ikki can do in a real battle. Episode four is going to be interesting to say the least, but until that post, remember to mask up and stay safe! 😉
