ANN wrote:The story follows Arcana Famiglia, a self-appointed organization with mysterious powers that has protected a small Mediterranean island from pirates, foreign countries, and other threats. The only daughter of the family's Papa, Felicita, will be married to the next head of the family in two months — and the successor will be decided in a competition that Felicita herself will take part in.

I liked episode 1. At least there ARE other women in here. Good cliffhanger leaving the 2 unidentified powers.

I love her kicks. Muay Thai FTW!!

this seems like it will be a good show, a bit odd with the mafia style characters, feels like a cross between kyoushi hitman reborn and Kuroshitsuji. There are a surprising number of interesting shows this season

meh, I usually just browse the critics reviews to get a general feel of the attitude towards new series, but I don't throw out a series just because they don't like it. Heck I remember a number of critics gave To aru no majutsu lukewarm reviews when it first came out. ended up being great and spawning 2 more series. They're just additional opinions

now on the flip side, this first ep wasn't exactly the most amazing thing I've ever seen. They characters are pretty stereotypical (make that very stereotypical) and the plot and powers they have arn't exactly original either but still, it looks like a show i'll enjoy so who cares what the critics say.

Yeah, I never bother with critique from other sites. I usually either just check the first ep or two or just see what's written here and if you people aren't like "BLEH, how could they even make it into manga.. this is just terrible" then I'll also watch the 1st ep :)

Watched the first episode. It feels like a typical shounen, but that doesn't bother me much since I love shounens. :P
I don't see anything wrong about this anime other than the three main characters looking like Team 7 from Naruto.

ep 2, white kittens and zero plot progression. Come on, prove the critics wrong, or at least give us some more fighting.

Agreed. Literally nothing happened that was of any importance to the plot in this episode.

I don't usually pay any heed to the critics, most of them don't know what they're talking about. That said, I wasn't really all that impressed with the first episode. I do like the premise, but I'm curious to see how it will develop. Will watch a few more eps maybe.

Ep2:
Spoiler :
Poor Luca. XD

I'm quite liking this so far but like the others I'm also hoping there'll be more fighting in this. Or at least show them doing some sort of training for the upcoming battle.

Still I like the setting and it reminds me of Reborn (which I love) with the family/mafia thing so I'll most likely continue following this. :3

Okay, you got the cat episode out of the way...that's good. Now we can get back to the REAL story, right?

I swear, if you show a beach episode, I'm gonna punch someone.

I agree should follow the tournament and then have characters owning each other showing that the intense training they did in the background was of use.

only 2 women in this series (mother and daughter at that). Not enough fanservice for a beach ep (unless it's targeting a female audience that is)
