In the magical academic city of Ashram, girls known as Pentagrams study general education, magic, and etiquette to become proper ladies. Hidden from the rest of the world, the school is like a secret garden that is home to blossoming flowers. However, bugs sensitive to magic may target and trample them; as one of their tasks, the girls must exterminate these insects.

The smileless Pentagram Arsnotoria lives in the fifth dorm house alongside her adored roommates: the cheerful Mell, the self-paced Little Alberta, the confident Picatrix, and the cool Abramelin. No matter what time of day, they hang out together as much as possible, and even throw tea parties in their secret room after completing their duties. The girls live in peace as they work toward their goal—but there may be more to Ashram and the Pentagrams beyond the calm life they have come to cherish.

Arsnotoria is one of the biggest teases I’ve seen in recent memory. For 12 weeks, we were bombarded with flashing red “warning” sequences hinting at some bigger, darker aspect of the story that just never came to fruition.

While I did genuinely enjoy girls doing cute things, going on adventures and just interacting with each other, I struggle to understand the point in foreshadowing a more serious story every episode for 30 seconds and then never connecting it to the main story and characters. It seemed like a massive missed opportunity.

In terms of what we did get in the story, Arsnotoria was a great way ...

I recommend this if you enjoy "slice of life". Wish the genre is fixed for this show, it's not marketing to the right audience, and I would've never run into this, if it weren't for me trying out new stuff.
Most people dislike this because of it's a remake of a game, and maybe have some types of expectation, but from someone just watching an "unknown show" perspective, this is comparable to most "slice of life" type of story telling, it's not grand, but it's not that awful either, I watched it as a story of magical school stuff in a "slice of life" genre mindset. ...

Sniff, sniff. What's that I smell? Mediocrity? Boringness? From a mobage adaptation that only exists to sell its IP in Japan and not the West? Hmm, smells about right of a rotten egg.

The motive of mobage adaptations is to sell its narrative to fans, but this poses a big problem. 99% of the time, the mobages are region-locked so people elsewhere will not get to enjoy what it has to offer, but often at times this is counter-intuitive that the adverse effect is stronger than all the marketing effort has to offer. And in this season, the only mobage adaptation this season that's in the ...
