So all of you guys watched it in Japanese?

Pretty much. Nobody's fansubbing it as of right now.


Horrible subs FTW.

That's a nice start.. Good animation.. It will take me some time to get use to that art-style tho.. But it really is nice. ill give this show a chance and hopefully it will not Disappoint.
Watching forward for the next episode.

After watching the first episode my guess is that it will either be really good or really bad. Hopefully the former one as good dark fantasy anime is quite rare.

That show look edgy as fuck. Oh well, it kind still be fun. There always need to be that kind of show in a season :P

It sure is action packed. And for CGI, even if it look a bit ''plastic'', it's still very well done.

The lucky boy got his own magical girl transformation :O

Other have already pointed it out, but the design sure look like Ornstein from Dark Soul. Even the universe seem a little bit similar.

I shouldn't have read the synopsis on MAL because it spoil plot that hasn't happened yet. I guess it's not important plot, but still, I feel like I already know what will happen next week.

The episode was overall OK, the armors looked really cool and the whole "witch hunt" part was rather interesting as they were actually hunting those that killed demons.

The dad reminds me of Jecht so much. And the king's son kinda looks like Luke from Tales of Abyss. But otherwise it was a pretty decent first episode. I'm glad this isn't exactly like the live action show either. I've got that stuff downloaded and ready to watch now. :D

Yeah the CG and animation blend kind of clash for me, but the one redeeming factor is that the CG at least looks like it's fairly high quality (?) I hope the CG won't get any more sloppy or cheaper as the show goes on

Very promising although the whole armor thing kind of ruins the fan. Is like a Berserk mixed with Karas type of thing.
Anyway definitely something i will follow but i have a bad feeling it might end up being too simplistic and power ranger like in future episodes. Hope i am wrong.

Holy shit, it is so rare to see a mature sex scene in an anime. Usually its some kid blushing and acting like an idiot. What a breath of fresh air.

Love this so far. I can't even think of another anime with Gothic architecture. Seems to be Late Middle Ages.

I normally don't mind CG but the CG armor looks so weird and awkward when mixed with the 2D environment. Such a shame because the story seems promising.

Didnt like the OP, but the ED was awesome. Sounds very similar to the Toyko ESP ending. Is it the same performers?

This was a pretty good first episode, probably one of my favorites this season. I LOVE the armor designs.

ow Big debut, the animation is a little different than usual, but I liked the style
The plot pleased me well intriguing, I was curious about the development of the story, I think this anime might surprise ..

That little shit kid looks like 009 in the latest CGI Cyborg 009 movie. He pisses me off right away just like Sho in Ultimax. There is NOTHING good here besides the side boobs of that hoe.

Absolutely fantastic. It's been a while since I've seen a show that gave me the kind of burning emotions this did without being a mecha series.

Not bad. Good action.

I like the "different" animation/character styling. The CG demon knight felt a bit out of place, but no matter (that slo-mo introduction looked amazing, though it lingered just a little too long).

I've heard that ED artist before... Mirai Nikki was it?

Thx MAPPA for giving anime more style.
Characters with quite a different design from usual, & more mature tone. Hoping the plot won't go into a super sentai formula.
CG was quite well done & animated, though blending with the 2d is more difficult in daylight when rescuing the baby. That's one cool horse.
Transformation sequence should go as long as sailor moon's, just for the sake of it.

Don't know if I'll ever get use to the mixture of CGI with "2D" animation, always a bit weird to me. But the CG was well done nonetheless, so it has this going for it. The action is good too, and I personnally love what we got for OST.

Didn't like the battles but the rest seems interesting enough.
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

I really felt the OST, the OP reminded me somehow of DBZ OPs.
I really liked the art style and the whole flow of it.
They really explained the story very well and all in all I can see myself enjoying it.

This is almost GARO perfect.

The CGI is difficult of course. It's always was, especially when these Horror beast come out at night to fight. Unsure about the character designs. They're very...well, "anime"?

BUT! The show has the right #GARO atmosphere so far.

And dude you got to see sex and you got to see a Greek torture-execution. *snaps fingers* GARO. Also, a JAM PROJECT OP.

Another great beginning episode, Mappa is really doing well this season. First Bahamut and then this, I wonder what show will be my favorite, so far both looks very good.

OP was good, ED was bad and I'm not sure I like those mechanical armors - would be better if they were more medival-ish or organic perhaps. But I like the story and its presentation, and dark-fantasy world they created. Gotta keep watching this further.

Oh dang. Another medieval fantasy action show this season that's pretty good. Shingeki no Bahumut and this show feel very similar to each other yet different. I like it so far! Good start.

OP song and animation are quite unique, not sure if its something to write home about though.

I'm somewhat dissuaded from watching more because I don't like the contrast of the 3D knights with the "more 2D" world (setting and character design).

A couple of the action scenes could have been better, such as the Gold Knight passing through the burning house that the Horror threw at him. I just saw frames of flames before the Gold Knight just appears, without cutting anything.

ED is definitely nothing to write home about though.

I'm very late to this thread. -.-
I don't consider myself a good judge.

Feel like a good show could be ruined by the mostly crappy 3d :(

Damn, hot demon woman died xD That scene was like the start of berserk, with speech :D

I'm going into this series without any familiarity regarding it, but I do like this first episode very much. I like the fantasy/medieval setting, the supernatural and horror elements, the Spanish influences on character names and the soundtrack, and the father-and-son combo (I haven't seen a lot of anime with this element so this will be interesting).

I'm already loving Herman and his mischievous ways. Poor Leon having to deal constantly with a father like that, lol! Can't wait to hear more of NamiDai as Leon!

Love the setting of the show, but not only is the CGI grating on the eyes, but the art style of the CGI feels really out of place. It's like Megatron invaded the Middle Ages.

Story seems promising enough to give it a chance.
