I think this is one of the most underrated anime of this season. This anime does not deserve the hate. I know the main characters sort of look like SAO characters, but surely this doesn't mean the anime is bad. The OP and ED are out of this world, definitely the best of this season, maybe even year? The story is unraveling quite slowly, and this may make people look away from this anime. However, the animation is pretty fricking good and the story, somewhat misunderstood by many, is quite simple. An assassin called Vampir is set on
a mission to see if Melida Angel is from the Angel bloodline. This is shown by whether she is able to gain the class of Paladin, but most importantly whether she can unleash her mana (power). I don't want to spoil anything but basically, Vampir starts to love (as a daughter, for now, lol) Melida and abandons his mission, as he realizes his new mission is to protect someone he has truly begun to love (as a daughter remember!!).
The synopsis is basically this. Vampir is told to kill Melida if she is illegitimate. There is suspicion she is, so he tries to kill her. Beforehand, he sees her determination and begins to love her like a daughter. He abandons his mission. He has one mission only now: protect Melida from public opinion and truly change her social opinion but making Melida become someone that knowone expects.
Please try this anime out. Also, there has been some negativity in the community due to the rough and 'poor' animation in episode 1. Then apparently in episode 2, 'they found the animation budget'. Like stfu, the rough flow of the animation was mainly to express the phsycological state Melida was in whilst she was bullied in the scene (she was so traumaticed the world in her head slowly begins to move rigidly and unevenly, as any victim of bullying would experiance). I think a lot of people misunderstand this anime, and you shouldn't too. I think this anime i definitly 8+/10, and a mean score under 7 is shocking to say the very least.
Yup, I think I was wrong. The story has barely even moved, most episodes are very forgettable and the characters are actually undeveloped af. This is becoming a very average show. It's fine for now I guess, but after watching episode 7, I'm not sure if there is any reason to keep watching this. However, I will finish this anime anyway as there is no point of dropping it now. Plus, the OP and ED are a heaven to my ears. After episode 7, I'm giving this a 5/10. Now I understand why this is a 6.5/10 on MAL, and the score is probably going to drop over time.
I am ashamed of myself for trying to defend this anime at first. I guess everyone makes mistakes.
UPDATE 2 (13/12/2019)
The story is slowly progressing, but the main aim of this show from the start doesn't link with the current arc/plotline. The story is in shambles, expressing poor story writing and overall weak presentation. Episode 9 is so edgy that it alone could be made into a hentai OVA. The show has no aim. It doesn't know the audience it is aimed at, most certainly, it doesn't know how to successfully push the plot forward in order to make all the pieces fit together. I hope the overall rating of this show drops below 6.
"Oh look, a magic high school anime, how original... How could it be any more generic? Kirito laser sabering bullets in the very first moments, we are having the typical troubled blondie as the main girl and the shy blue-haired girl for the side as well. Let me just do a favor for myself and not waste my time." - As I believe for many others, this was my first reaction to the anime.
... But something was different. No braindead fanservice, the harem is missing several members AND where are the balloon animals?? ... so anyway something was off.
Sure the whole setup is as generic
as it ever gets, but it just is executed so well.
First of all, let me just talk about the OP. It cured my OCD by itself. It is just so well produced: The music pick was quite surprising, I haven't seen much OP-s, with this style of music. Then the video isn't just the typical slideshow, it is in perfect sync with the music, it is just a joy to watch.
The anime takes this very generic set-up, but then with good directing and high production value, it turns it into something great. The art is top-notch, there aren't jarring animations, fight scenes are fluid and well-directed. The music is good too, always fits the situation.
Back to the generic characters:
Sure the show's Kirito named Kufa is quite overpowered, but instead of him beating anything and everything, they move him into a support-like role. The true MC is Melida, who is certainly not anywhere near overpowered. She fights in the majority of the action scenes, she actually has to perform her very best every time. This way the anime doesn't get dull super quick, it isn't just Kufa slapping the shit out of everybody with no effort.
The main characters while looking very generic at first, they have depth to them. Melida even though being from a noble family, is seriously struggling every day and still doesn't give up. Because of this Kufa decides to get her out of her misery. Anyway Kufa is as much of a gentleman as it is possible.
Some side characters are quite unique, like Pricket fighting with two circle-like things, or in episode 4 the girl who is communicating by lighting cards on fire then the flames are spelling out the words. So even though the starting situation is generic, there are plenty of new unique ideas in the show.
The story isn't too complex, given the theme so far mostly there have been tournaments and Kufa training Melida for them, but other things too I won't spoil. Things are usually happening behind the curtains too, some we cannot make much sense just yet.
I can really appreciate shows like this. Starting from a generic set-up, but turning then turning it into something great. Sure it is no masterpiece, but it is really nice to see that with good writing/directing everything can be made into a good show.
I am absolutely flabbergasted by the number of positive reviews written for this show (as of December 8, 2019). This show has to be one of the most uninspired, generic pieces of work that has come out in recent memory. I'm quite perplexed by how anyone can find this sorry excuse for an anime intriguing, and how this show was even green-lit in the first place. Not only do I think this show is absolutely horrendous, but it outright disrespects the viewer's intelligence and its a tragedy that anyone is allowed to even go near this filth.
I won't write a long winded review of me
completely trashing this show and going through everything that is wrong with it, so I'll give you the gist of everything this show embodies:
This show is lazy. From the story, to the characters, to the character designs, to the art, and so on. Every single trope found within the medium of anime is shoved into this shit show, and it's difficult to tell if this abomination was supposed to be a satire on the medium as a whole given the amount of generic plot points and characters. Actually, scratch that because satire implies that humor is found within this show, which it isn't. The only people who can actually find this show entertaining are those who either haven't seen any other anime, or those who are looking for an easy self-insert type of show.
"oh no, sensei isn't paying attention to me :c guess i'll keep pouting until he headpats me :3"
"man i'm so untalented, i can't do anything by myself :'c. guess i'll wait for sensei to do it for me :> (or wait for the 'plot' to give me the power to progress through the current situation)"
"sensei talks to another girl?!?11?! <pout face> that makes me sad because he isn't talking to me :c :c :c"
The show goes out of its way to try and force this "romance" between the main two characters but it is the most awkward attempt at romance that I've seen in a long time. I can't explain the amount of times my jaw dropped at the absurdity that was on my computer screen, and the amount of times I wanted to just stop watching this show. The plot is completely uninteresting, and to dare call it 'mature' or 'dark' is straight up foolish. If simply showing blood or having a darker color gradients for the animation is considered 'mature' or 'dark' in the context of anime, then I don't want to watch anime anymore.
You may be asking, "iF yOu dIdn'T lIkE iT, wHy dId yOuu keEp wAtChinG??", or saying, "jUsT leT peoPLe enJoY thIngS mAN...".
Well I'll tell you why. I persevered through this abhorrent, dark stain of the anime industry so that I can remind myself of what a good show shouldn't be. If one only watches 'good' shows, how can one really know if they are good? You need something to compare to, and this show ladies and gentleman will be the example of what not to do.
But most importantly, I willed myself to finish this show to let whoever is reading this know to avoid this show like the plague and don't be fooled the the positive things people say about this train wreck. This show is, without a doubt, the worst show to have aired in 2019 and I am fully okay being the fool to finish this show to let you know that.
The anime adaptation of Assassin's Pride has major contextual and pacing issues. Despite this, I can't bring myself to give this series a bad rating as it feels like the 'meta' of anime is pressuring studios to act this way.
What do I mean by this? The 3 episode rule. The studio is trying to emotionally charge the 1st 3 episodes enough to have watchers excited and interested and tell their friends about it to see and watch this new series that seemingly comes out of nowhere.
The result? A lot of cut content. Lots and lots of missing context.
Episodes are reaching the maximum
run time possible to fit as much information as possible, yet still leaving out nuanced and specific details of events, perspectives, and characterization critical to telling an effective multifaceted romance.
I think that this time, believe it or not, the quality of this anime suffered not because of the studio entirely, but because of the pressure we as consumers of anime exude on studios like this.
With that out of the way, we can now go onto the Plot
Assassin's Pride is about the fate of a noble 13 year old girl named Melida Angel who seemingly fails to manifest her 'mana' (this world's Nen [HunterXHunter] equivalent). She is from a distinguished bloodline that is known for giving birth to heirs of the 'Paladin' class which is an esteemed and powerful class that sits leagues above the rest. As a result, she is being suspected of being an illegitimate child of the Duke of the house Angel because she does not inherit his dominant hereditary blood so to speak.
That's where MC comes in. Our MC, under the alias Kufa Vampir, operates as an agent of an elite dark guild that does dirty work such as assassination, cover-ups, etc. He is 'supposedly' a coldblooded killer sent to off Melida Angel if he is convinced that she is not a legitimate heir to the Paladin bloodline. Within a day, he quickly discerns that she is not. Then comes the time he is to kill her to complete his mission. Instead of killing her, like the cold blooded killer he is supposedly written to be, he is moved by her resolve (coldblooded killer btw) and decides to gamble his life and plant his mana into her instead of killing her (again, coldblooded killer assassin edgelord btw).
This is where most of the conflict of the story will arise from. MC has gone against his orders to 'save' Melida who he was sent to kill, and instead acted in self interest to even plant his own mana into her. He is now playing a dangerous game of assassin trying to protect his target.
The world building is ok. It's not fleshed out in the slightest in neither the manga or LN, but the power system is ok thus far. From the looks of it, it's going to be a shoujo style story mainly targeted at young females interested in romance. The MC, based on his occupation, is inconsistently written in the LN and manga, being extremely lighthearted and doing comedic things quite often. In the Anime he is much more stoic and reserved, hiding away most of his true intentions and ulterior thoughts. The premise is alright and passable but the pacing of the anime hurts it a lot.
The series looks quite good for the studio behind it. It's nowhere near that of studios like A-1, Trigger, or MadHouse, but it's quite decent. Art style is consistent with very slim arms and legs being the only style choice I disagree with. Character designs are ok, nothing out of this world.
Not enough music to really know for sure, but it's passable and fair 2 episodes in.
For a romance style story, its characters should be its strong point but as of now, the characters aren't that endearing yet. Melida is alright, written with the moral compass of a shounen protagonist but the heart of a shoujo protagonist (obviously because she's a girl). MC in the anime, I would argue, is depicted better in the anime [ignoring pacing issues] as he's an assassin acting as a gentleman and instructor.
If 7 is my average, then my enjoyment of this story is above average by a decent margin. The anime has a lot of cut content so I honestly believe that everyone watching should supplement their viewing experience with reading the manga. As I said before, the anime suffers from trying to nail down on the 3 episode rule.
It's not a bad series. I immediately began reading the manga after watching episode 2 to gain some clarity as to what the **** was happening as context was clearly missing from several parts of the story. All I can blame is cut content to fit the 24minute air time limit. If we as an anime community could expand our 3 episode rule to perhaps 5 to 7 episodes (unlikely but one can hope), it'd probably benefit anime studios immensely.
I would like to begin by saying that I have watched too many anime by now and I have reached a point where I have to either dig very deeply to find another gem or wait for new anime to come out. This anime was one of those that I began to watch only because I was out of anime and quite frankly I was bored, so I said why not.
I kind of regret giving it my time, in all honesty. I'll explain everything to you in a second. Until now, I have watched 9 episodes and I am not excited or whatsoever about what's
to come next.
This story had so much potential and I mean it. It had the possibility to have been developed well, with the ability to truly enchant the audience. Instead, it is lackluster because of how they decided to develop the storyline. From beginning to end, something has been missing and they have been either forcing their way through with information and help the viewer or leaving us completely confused. Personally, it felt like they are giving us chunks of information and simply mashing them together whilst trying to make it seem intentional. The MCs are truly disappointing for the fact that they are generic and their chemistry is as forced and weird as it could get. Their relationship with each other began weirdly and is progressing just like the start. Take into account that we were never given a solid reason as to why the MC decided to toss away his mission for the girl. We lack a convincing backstory that can truly justify those actions. This anime doesn't even push you to be connected with anyone, but I'll explain this in another section.
Not horrible, but the fight scenes need work. This anime is the perfect example of the anime that tries to push the sales of the manga. The last sentence is enough to make you understand what I mean,
Nothing blew me away. Considering the masterpieces that other animes have given us, this show has not given us anything.
As mentioned before, if a story is not well developed, then so will its characters because they won't have any foundation on where to stick to. Relationships are poorly explained or developed, making it seem as if everything happens just because. I know that most people watching this anime should be of the ages 12-15 because that seems to be the target audience from the relationship between 13 years old and a grown-ass man. If any of you find that enjoyable, you are either too young or you have questionable taste.
I answered this not from my own perspective because I would have said a 4. But I do see why people would find it enjoyable. It is a plot that never fails to be somewhat entertaining and the overpowered MC and just-discovered-strong-lead will forever be a great push for the interest of the viewer.
Anyone who has been watching anime for a long time and wants another gem, this just ain't it. But if you are getting started, I do recommend this anime.
I originally never planned to even touch this anime but the catchy opening song made me watch it.(A few minor spoilers ahead)
The story is pretty good and is the first time I've seen a story like this. Although when watching the anime I did feel some parts were a bit rushed, especially with some of the time skips. The time skips weren't that bad but I feel like they could have added at least something so it wasn't it didn't seem like a jump. Compared to the time skips in SAO this isn't that bad.
Another thing that
felt was a bit rushed was how Melida gained her ability to use mana. Melida's instructor shared her his mana although it wasn't made clear on how exactly he did it. Another one was the battle between Melida and her cousin, she lost in the first tournament and in the next episodes she was able to beat her??
They didn't show much of her training making it feel rushed. Other than that I guess the idea of the story is pretty good. If only they didn't rush things that much and actually decided to make the anime longer than 12 episodes. I haven't read the manga but probably the manga is less rushed and explains things better.
The art didn't hurt my eyes nor did it blow my mind, but in 2019 it's expected that most anime should have good art.
( For the sounds I will also count the Osts, the Ed, and the Op) The opening is really good an catchy and the more I listen to it the better it gets. Although the same animation was used twice in the Op, I guess that's because of it's budget.
The Ed was also really good and didn't make me skip it and go to the next episode like most Eds.
As for the Osts they weren't anything special or anything bad. They were quite average I'd say.
The voice acting was normal, the voice acting of Melida wasn't annoying or squeaky and the other characters sounded good. The voice acting for Kufa was also really good and I guess it kind of matched his character in a way?
I'm not good at giving my opinion on things but so far this anime isn't bad. It doesn't deserve hate and it's quite decent. Although I feel like they rushed it because of the 12 episodes. Although if you were to look at the characters and story there is a lot of potential and this could be really good. If only it was given more episodes and it was less rushed. The anime is still airing and I have yet to see it play out. The story is a long story and would take many episodes to finish so I think there is a high chance of a season 2 but it hasn't finished airing yet so I can't tell yet.
No, it's not just Kirito and Asuna or a Guilty Crown rip off. This is criminally underrated.
Assassins Pride is its own unique thing and truthfully, of the many anime i have seen over two decades, I have not seen anything like it. I absolutely love the setting, plot and overall tone of the series. It has a darker aesthetic, as you would expect from a seinen series and it really adds a lot to the experience.
Asassins Pride follows Melida Angel and her instructor Kufa Vampir who was originally sent in to kill her but ends up becoming attached to her, as they try to
deal with Melida's lack of magic in a world where magic is everything. I went into the series pretty blind, but have since ordered the manga to get more lore, but as of right now the story and writing is very strong with a distinct air of mystery hanging over it and it leaves you craving the next episode every time. Fights are beautiful, colours are beautiful, the OP is a Fucking bop, characters are well written and have their own unique personalities and abilities. I really enjoy this series a lot and hope more people will check it out, unfortunately it is a pretty crowded season. 8/10. Give this one a watch.
I’m yet to be entirely sold on this series, but I might get there. The show seems to be just a little too serious, like it’s trying hard to be this dark and edgy stuff but ultimately comes out a bit bland. The delivery is somewhat a bit too melodramatic in an attempt to mask it from being just another generic show.
The story seems a bit cliched, it feels like the narrative is a mishmash of linked ideas that aren’t smoothly connected, making for a viewing experience that’s a bit disjointed. But there is actual character development and the pace is good which evens
it out. The art is great, and the production budget seems high with unusual camera angles and unorthodox framing, and the general lack of cringy CG is certainly welcome. Basically, the combat scenes are amazing and it has a great soundtrack to boot.
I feel that it had a bit of a rough start, but it has lot of potential moving forward. And new developments in the recent episodes make me look forward to the rest. This show may not be that great right out of the gate, but it may be worth watching.
This show was basically just how you would expect it to be like from the trailer.
Just another pretty generic show. Everything about this show is painfully average and mediocre. It doesn’t really do anything special when it comes to its art direction. Just the generic fantasy/isekai look.
Character design is also very bland, going for costumes that would appeal to the eye more than if they actually make sense in terms of the world. For example middle school girls with very, uh, lets say uniforms that would be unusual in real life, but be pretty normal in these fantasy anime schools.
I love this show though,
I love it more than any show this season. I don’t know why, but it’s so generic that it manages to check every box about an anime that I like. In terms of actual merit, this show isn’t good, but it isn’t bad either, just mediocre.
Yet just like some people like generic industrialised pop music, some people like these types of anime too (namely me). If you liked Akashic records, you’ll probably like this.
I have mixed feelings about this show. I really do. While I do admit, it got better as it went along, after what I felt was a bit of a lackluster first episode. Even took me up till now to get back into it, and at first, I wasn't looking forward to it. But again, it did get better as it went on. Not by much, but it did improve in areas.
The trouble for me was the pacing of the show, and a few of the characters for me aren't great at all. I even disliked the main guy at first, as I'm not really
a fan of the super op characters. While it's lowered a bit, I'm still hovering over the 'eh' in terms of how I feel about him. As for other characters? Some are alright, some are ok, some I really don't give a fuss about to be perfectly honest.
As for the world and story? It's interesting, which does keep the want to see more there at least. The premise of it is what does it for me. With the whole going against a mission you were given, in order to protect someone after you were moved. It's nice. I do want to see Melida grow and over come her obstacles honestly. Hope she does as the story goes on.
Should you give it a shot? Sure. It's not borderline trash, and again, does have a great premise about it. So if you're into that, then this is the anime for you.
my english is bad but i want to do this
It's just not normal typical magic school but a bit more darker and this anime isn't loli bait
our main focus character is struggle as hell and atmosphere of story always bring her trouble It's very awkward too simulate her feeling
but i don't know the story direction and the point of her struugle when she's overcome it. It's don't return me anything
for example shield heroes really did this part well and probably overdo it when he's success his revenge there are always bring me some enjoyment
for music fit really well with atmosphere of this show.
the ending can really use with every scene. the soundtrack also god
and i really enjoy the OP even i recycle some animation
then part i don't like probably almost the half setting and they try so hard to want lolis to shine but when in reality they're all kids everyone almost no interesting background just a rich kids and too bad they're main focus of story. protagonist might be interesting but he's complete sub character and no romance, no slice of life and every episode feel less reason to keep watching only art quality and watch heroine struggle more with no point she's not gonna prove herself soon since there is a promotional LN anime think of that way. no way this anime gonna give good conclusion
I tried. I really tried to like this anime, but I just could not bring myself to care the slightest bit about any of the characters. It's generic, uninspired, and at times just lazy. There are few twists or surprises. Anyone could write a story based off of the synopsis alone, and it would be so similar to what you got that either could be used to predict the other. I doubt this show will ever get a second season, and the world is better for it.
Don't waste your time on this; 2019 has been chalk full of incredible shows you could be watching instead.
Story : 6

Enjoyment : 6
i'm fan of fantasy/isekai animes.
At first, i heard the name, i expecting some above
normal kind of fanatsy anime, and when i listening its OP, its too girly and happy (far from assasins-ish)..why?
so i'm reducing my expectation, and i got it why.this anime is less action, too "drama/love love" for me.
i thought it'll be "wow", but actually "meh"
it's not bad, but not good enough (for me)
maybe if you guys tired of "normal kind" of fantasy anime, you can watch it.
but if you like kind of action, dark and adventure-ish anime, you can
The only show where I do the absolute opposite:
Skip half of the actual content and sat through all the OPs and EDs.
Short & Sweet Spoilers Free (9 episodes in):
This is probably as trashy as a cliche generic fantasy harem show could get, and it really is just that. To my surprise it's pretty enjoyable, for perhaps the wrong reasons. But as long as you don't mind shutting down your frontal lobe a bit, it's a solid time pastime. The show is "special", and any meaning of the word "special" you can think of can simultaneously apply here.
I can definitely see polarized opinions on this show,
for it excels (in a good way) but for the worst things. It has no shame displaying the silly parts, and instead reinforces them to a point where you don't feel weirded out anymore. Despite being able to spot the flaws, I couldn't deny that I liked it. Just for that alone I think it's fair to compare it with SAO, or The Irregular at Magic Highschool, my personal favorite guilty pleasure. You hate to love it.
On a side note, I really enjoyed the catchy OP and the memorable ED, some of my favorites this season. The animation on the OP and some of the post-budget-apocalypse action/dramatic scenes were done very well.
In the end, Assassin's Pride gives you plenty reasons to watch it, be it ironically or genuinely. Rated a 6 for "ehhhhh could be worse".
i like this kind of anime, with a good opening, and then story, but pls stop saying its like kirito or some sht, because its normal. use your brain pls dont give the rating so low.
i dont know what are you guys thinking but pls support this anime, i begging to you guys. i know u dont like any action anime anymore, u re old. but this is just a good story, and a great Mc
so i just suprise when i see the rating, watdepak its 6? u gotta be joking right? are u give that rating so simple? THINK!
Editing is very unique with a
wide variety of camera angles and shot compositions.
Soundtrack has a massive epic orchestral feel to it with a good amount of emotional variety for different moments.
The show does not overburden you with world building monologues which I was initially afraid of.
The characters are built up decently well but so far are relatively basic and a bit stereotypical.
Not the story fault, to be honest. The characters do not have any space for development in this anime. In contrast, it is different for the manga. If you do not understand multiple aspects about these characters, you may find those pieces in the manga, and the LN. This anime is "incompetent" - just as the main heroine.
Art and Sound: 9
Well, this is overrated things. Art got nine because I am a lolicon and flatcon? The OP is excellent, can say it is the best OP of the season, in my opinion.
Motif, edgy sensei and the poor incompetent girl.
I enjoyed it,
even with the rush.
Assasins Pride had me a little hyped with a decent first episode and an interesting sounding synopsis. Sadly every kind of hype faded by episode 3 and the show was a trainwreck from episode 6 onwards which was disappointing. Let's not waste too much time on my subjective opinion but get into the objective achievements the anime can show which are.... spare, to say the least.
The story itself is an interesting concept but with the missing narrative explaining absolutely nothing or building up anything what so ever it's hard to even connect the 'plot points' to a
linear storyline which makes it hard to enjoy or understand. The anime does a terrible job at telling and substentiating the different aspects of not only character backgrounds but the world itself. I found myself being utterly confused as to what happened exactly for more than 40% of the episodes.
The character design and developement aswell as background stories are a bit better but not that much since the show does a terrible job of explaining stuff in this department aswell. A lot of supporting characters are as 2 dimensional as they can get and even the main characters reasons and motives are somewhat questionable. The interactions, if they even interact to begin with, between most characters seem so artifical and unnatural that it hurts to watch them.
Now considering the style of the show and how bright the colors are I've expected a little bit more than skipping entire fights, using dusty/cloudy screens or not even animating the character probably to be honest. A lot of the times you see the characters standing in place for multiple consecutive scenes and the fights are especially dissapointing especially when you have a keen eye for motion. They also love to recycle animation seconds later aswell as use cheap effects for auras and other stuff. I could've sworn at some points they were literally just moving the exact same keyframe across the screen to make them move in some fights. The design is the only good thing about the animation to be honest.
Personal Enjoyment 2/10
Not only did the anime do a terrible job at explaining or narrating the story but it also cut corners in animation by reusing trashy effects, scenes and even entire motions. The characters are bland at best and their interactions made me physically cringe at some points. In general the show feels terribly rushed and like a typical unloved side project which just happened to fall in some studios hands. Instead of a romance and action filled drama story you get a trainwreck that keeps getting worse each and every episode but you just can't stop taking your eyes off of it. The most enjoyment I got out of the show was watching the OP which is by the way done 10x times better than the rest of the show.
Personal Enjoyment 2/10
Man does this show suck. And I mean it really sucks.
But there are some good things in this show, as some of the backgrounds are beautiful, while the overall world being encased in these light bulb enclosures, is such a cool atmosphere, which is never fully expanded upon, sadly. The music for this show is also one of its highlights, with the opening and ending being the best parts of the show to me.
Now for the bad, and there is a lot of it. Its like every week they tried to cut corners and said "yeah the animation can be a little worse
next week", but when the second episode takes a nose dive in quality, this makes these differences in quality almost unbearable.
The characters also suck. None of them seem to have any motivation towards whatever they are doing and just do whatever because the story needs them to do it so it can get to its next plot point.
I don't even want to get into the whole thing about how every other character in the show except for the two senseis are all 13 year old girls either. Its just really not for me.
I was really hoping that this show could have been something at least enjoyable, but every episode the show just seems to get worse and worse. A 4 might be a high rating for this show.
Cringey, uninspired with a poor narrative.
dialogue isnt natural, characters are generic and awful, general world building is basic and quite dumb
this animes story is really weak and the only reason to watch this is for the decent animation, if anything this anime is just filler. nothing really impressive this anime season and this anime doesn't help disprove that.
i mean if you like animes that borderline sexualised 13 year old girls in a really awkward fan fic tier story then go ahead, enjoy what you enjoy. the first few episodes i had hoped this would be alright but it quickly falls flat to the point
where its uncomfortable to watch. in saying that its pretty tame with its contents but its hard to enjoy.
only worth to watch if your desperate on anime or have read the source material and like how it develops, you know, with a young adult grooming a barely teenage girl for paper thin reasons.
