This anime is a bit too complicated for me. I don't know if it's just because I'm slow or what, but it had so many complicated terms and side stories I can barely catch up.

I did like the concept behind it. It was interesting, talking about grimoires and sorcery and combat, etc. but as I've said it tends to become complicated.

I am torn here

My recomendation would be simple - dont watch this anime !

Dont watch it becouse ..... you might actualy like it in the end ...... not knowing how big a crime was commited by its creators.

Evrything great about the game was wasted in this sorry excuse of an adaptation, flatening the story, cutting ...
