How can this season be any more awesome than it already is? Yet another extremely promising start that isn't holding back. It's not just because they're by the same studio, but I feel like Shingeki no Bahamut and this will compliment each other well this season. Both are handling the CGI well and have me too mesmerized to worry about its presence. Really interested to see what role the king's son will play in all of this as well as learning more about this world in general.

being caught up on the show this definitely is a nice parallel to shingeki, this is more of a darker look on the setting while shingeki is more of a romantasized look but both with their nice sense of humor and execution.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

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.


just watch Season 3 : Garo - Yami No Terasu
the CGI is more awesome in there

The action scenes in this anime seem similar to power rangers.

What I thought was it was pretty similar to Kamen Rider lol. At least they didn't take too much time transforming. Unlike Kamen Rider and Power Rangers

My cousins recommended this to me, and I have to say I liked it a lot! Looks very promising, and I like the art style. Leon is awesome, and his father too!

The only miss for me was the way the armors looked in action with the 3D it looked so out of place and weird, but that doesn't really matter to me. But aside from that, story seems interesting and I can't wait to watch some more later!

The prostitute who looked like Anna was beautiful.. Promising start for the first episode.. Thank god Mappa is animating it.. Already liking the animation although, at times it kinda looks blurred or way too soft in nature.. Liked the OP but not the ED. Liked the visuals used for the OP too..

Very good start.

Kept my attention throughout the whole episode.

This might be as good as Bahamut.

Just finished the first season of the live action so was chomping at the bit for what they could do in Anime. Not much it seems. Surprised this could reach a 7 with the animation from the first episode.

Okay episode. Nice OP and ED songs.
If you see that my post is exactly 1 month old (or more) from when it was posted... Don't waste your time, especially when you want to reply with something petty & insignificant. Assume that I've moved on (because I have).

The OP sucks balls smh.

Once again MAPPA uses CGI instead of actually trying to animate the "difficult" stuff. Pretty lazy if you ask me. Animation as well looks pretty cheap with most of the character designs barely having any depth.

Also, the VA for the court mage (or whatever he is) is SOOOO miscast, doesn't fit him at all.

I came here because of the opening.
Pretty strong start, it seems quite average story-wise in an unpretentious way but the presentation/technical aspects make it shine. Pretty good action too, ok CGI included (but clunky movements excluded), although I would have loved the same thing man-made).

4/5 Spanish and german-sounding names?


The series has mature themes so the fanservicy scenes were expected.

"mature themes"? Look maybe, but I doubt witch hunt or manipulation are especially mature themes. Also, how were the bed scenes fan-service? o_O

Love the artstyle and the story so far

Only thing I'm a bit confused at is the king not knowing who the knight is and suddenly at the ceremony there is a picture of him where they refer to him as hero
