Well it's a 12 ep series, and you can't expect them to fix the world without a few time skips now can you :P

Holy hell. By far best episode of the season. God damn fairies, that was an awesome surprise. Plus the cool battle plan by...you know I'm just gonna call her Ruby. She mentioned she is called "Ruby Eyes" a few episodes ago.

Nice dueling scene, even if they sacrificed art detail for dynamic movement. It was worth the effort. I am in love with the soundtrack for this series. I'm surprised how little feedback this series is getting.

I've been wondering that too. And even after 7 eps in, I'm still not sure what to make of this, as I'm trying not to expect much from it as well. I mean, it kinda feels like a slice of life version of Queen's Blade but without the (exposed) boobage or the tournament, so I'm not really sure what to expect.

I also kinda feel like playing Lords of the Realm II again.

Aside from a fantasy setting, how is this in any way like queen's blade (all I can remember that series being about was the tournament and boobage, what do you have left when you take those away lol).

Aside from the director being the same, I'm trying to figure out why this series feels so similar to spice and wolf, the authors of the source material are different but they feel very similar, atmosphere wise.

Yeah, just the setting since it's all that's left when you take those two away. I haven't watched very much anime that's set in the medieval times with all the European-like architecture and the magicks and the sort. None that I can recall since Queen's Blade is the only one I can think of when it comes to that type of setting, anyways.

There's actually a surprising number of medieval anime around. Old school series like Bastard, slayers, scrapped princess the old Berserk series and new Berserk Movies (for god sake's watch the movies and shun the series). More recently you got claymore, wolf and spice, tears to tiara, zero no tsukaima, legend of legendary heroes. Those are all stuff that I can think off just off the top of my head. Do a google for medieval anime and you'll get a lot of results.

I actually got most of those on my to watch list. I guess I should move them up on that list, since I'm not watching anything that isn't current at the moment. I don't know why I haven't watched much medieval stuff, but I guess that'll be fixed here shortly.

Most intelligent boobs in anime to date I suppose. Something unexpected from ARMS, the makers of Ikkitousen, Queen's Blade, and a handful of other booty fest combat anime.

Take note, whenever they introduce a male protagonist, their anime starts getting quite awesome. Samurai Girls, Hagure Yuusha, and now Maoyuu.

Though the combat in this one is quite bland, aside from that one island war attack, the 'war' spoken of isn't shown onscreen very often.

Here's hoping that Lelouch and Kallen can actually get hooked up so to speak... :asd:

Not enough action? Lets add a bipolar mage with multiple personality disorder, a nuclear explosion, and an awakened demon reincarnate with a scythe.

Good episode.

Yeah the mage's late intro was pretty awesome. Kinda sad having to see this end without knowing how the war goes after her return. Second season where?

Good series, definitely incomplete, I really hope we can see a continuation like we did with wolf and spice, but I'm not going to get my hopes too high on that. This is a light novel series, it's slowly being translated so eventually I'll be able to pick up where this left off. I felt the confrontation between the hero and demon old demon king's was a bit anticlimactic. The whole thing lasted less than a minute before she broke free.

by the way, is there even a point in having battles when the hero can just shoot fricken death star sized plasma balls and lightning bolts. When they were fighting in the war earlier he should have been able to wipe out all the demon armies himself.
