Builds up relationship. Or the daughter can experience a super harem

ep 3, quickly losing faith in this series

what the heck is the point in having a series with a mafia family with special powers when you have neither anything mafia or special powers related in 2 eps in a row. Ep 2 was rescuing kittens, ep 3 was ghost hunting. Seriously, this is more like a high school anime (in fact the general plots in eps 2 and 3 have been done in a bunch of highschool/slice of life series).

Gonna watch ep 4 and if I don't see something completely baddass I'm dropping this until it's done and then going through the eps just to watch any fight scenes (if there even are any, kinda questionable at this rate).

I actually quite like this show. It's true that it's kind of slow but then again every episode does tell us something about the plot. It just seems that it would need to be at least two seasons long.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Show itself isn't... uhm... to my taste? I don't want to say bad because I wouldn't know, I'm just out of the target audience I believe. But that gif killed me, too bad it's just a custom user made thing and not in the actual show. :asd:

summary of ep 4

Spoiler :
1st half of the ep, nothing happened, 2nd half:

Liberta to Dante: "Why didn't you tell me about my past?"
Dante: "Because you can blow shit up just by talking and you're an idiot"
Liberta: "So you don't think I can use my powers right?"
Dante: "Today you decided to go across town by jumping rooftops and then fell off the very first one dragging the ojou-sama after you. No you can't use them right dumbass."
Liberta: *runs away crying and hating the world*
*stereotypical rival appears and gives words of encouragement so Liberta feels better.*

The end

So as I'm reading this topic or at least the second page I can't help but to wonder.. Am I the only one truly enjoying this show? :D

I'm watching it, mostly cause I've caught up with all the other series I like. This series had a lot of potential but most of the eps have been about stuff unrelated to what I thought was the plot (big mafia tournament of power users to determine the next head of the family/wife of the ojou-sama). However, there has been no fighting, training to fight, significant use of powers or any mafia like activity (seriously, in the last ep they fell off a roof onto a vender and were made to do part time work to pay off the damages, how many mafia families would do that? especially their heiress of the family. They'ed either just pay for the damages with family funds or just just burn the stand down).

In the last ep there were some flashbacks and stuff which tied into the characters but overall i'm rather disappointed. However, as mentioned above i'll probably keep watching.
