4 EXCITING Magic Knight Anime

What’s the best anime series that features magic, knights, adventure, and fantasy worlds?

Well, here will tell you all about these magical anime kingdoms and hopefully give you something to binge.

Magic knights are a type of anime that focus on the adventures of magical knights and their quest for power. The anime can include elements like kingdoms and tournaments as well. They also often include robots that the knights themselves can pilot! (for a brief history of magic in anime, check out this illustrative post)

The following are some of the most popular anime that feature magic knights running amok in fantasy worlds:

Knight’s & Magic

It’s time to get ready for the ultimate anime adventure!

Magic Knights is a fun anime that combines magic, knights, and giant robots. The story follows a young Japanese man who dies in a car accident and reincarnates in an alternate world where magic and giant robots are real. Since then, he has dedicated himself to fulfilling his lifelong dream of building and piloting his own mecha.

It’s fun, it’s light-hearted, and it has some really cool characters.

I’ll be honest with you: I’ve seen a lot of anime over the years, but this one is definitely one of my favorites. It’s just so good! Also, feel free to check out the Knight’s & Magic light novel if you’re into that.

Magic Knight Rayearth

If you’re looking for an anime to fill the hole in your heart left by the end of your last series with magical tournaments (or if you just like magic and knights), look no further than Magic Knight Rayearth.

This anime follows three eighth-grade girls who find themselves transported from modern-day Japan into a magical world, where they are tasked with rescuing a princess—and it’s every bit as fun as it sounds!

The girls are forced to fight their way through different kingdoms to reach the final showdown with a villainous magician, but they can’t do it alone. They become Magic Knights and must learn to work together to use their powers to defeat Zagato’s minions.

Magic Knight Rayearth is an action-packed adventure filled with magic and knights! Also if you want to see a deeper dive into the world of Rayearth, look no further.

Otome Game Sekai wa Mob ni Kibishii Sekai desu

Have you ever wished for a world where women reign supreme? Well, if so, we’ve got the perfect anime for you! Sekai wa Mob ni Kibishii Sekai desu (literal translation: “The World is Mob-Dominated”) follows the story of a man named Leon who reincarnates into a world where women reign supreme. He joins a magic academy and lives out his peaceful life as a “mob” character – or so he thinks.

As an otome game, or dating sim, it features plenty of romance and drama between the main characters as they work together to save the world from evil forces. But what makes this show stand out is its unique twist on the typical magical girl formula: instead of being a simple magic knight fighting against evil monsters, our protagonist in this anime plays his life like a game as he tries to survive this strange new world inhabited by powerful women who want nothing more than to make him their husband!

Not only that, but the main character pilots a mecha and (against his will) climbs the ranks of the magical knight world. If you’re looking for a fun magic fantasy adventure in a kingdom with plenty of laughs along the way, look no further than this anime!

When you think of anime with magic, knights, and the fantasy adventure you’ve always dreamed of, what do you see?

We see a group of warriors who were wrongly accused of a crime they didn’t commit. We see them go on a quest to vindicate themselves.

We see the Seven Deadly Sins.

The story of the Seven Deadly Sins is one of bravery, strength, and friendship—and also one of betrayal, revenge, and loss. This anime has got everything: action-packed battles between rival magic kingdoms; magic spells that can change the world; talking animals that can turn into humans; and one really tough cookie who just wants justice served.

It’s like Harry Potter meets Game of Thrones meets The Lord of the Rings meets Naruto! And if that doesn’t sound like your idea of fun times, then I don’t know what does.

So Now What?

In the end, if you’re looking for an exciting anime to watch, many of these might make great additions to your streaming library – especially if you’re into magic knights and tournaments. Each of them promises a thrilling adventure with magic at play, so you won’t want to miss out on these. If nothing else, they can whet your appetite for something new.
