I liked this. It gives off this nostalgia, classic, adventure feel. I like the stylish effects too. The hate/rivalry dynamics between the main pair are fun. The OST is really well done and fitting. Seems like this show will be pretty solid for this season if it keeps up this quality.

LOL @ "What I want is love" omg that reminds me of Kyousougiga's first episode!

edit - Ahhhh so it has the same director as Tiger and Bunny! That's why it gives off this un-anime feel (not that its a bad thing lol). Also...Morikubo Showtaro voicing duck character! LOOL I also like Yoshino Hiroyuki voicing the main guy.

Ooh that was amazing! Great art, fantastic OST, and that fight animation was damn good! Amira in her demon form was just beautiful. The beginning was kinda boring but the 2nd half was great!

And just as I was starting to lose hope in this season. Will definitely follow this.

I think about 10 or more have come out and the majority were disappointing or not so interesting yet so I was a bit disillusioned after a barrage of bad 1st impressions. I was starting to think that only the sequels (Log Horizon, Chaika, Mushishi) and Fate would be the only ones I'm gonna stick with for sure lol

Holy shit. That was the most distinctively un-anime anime I've ever seen. Blown away. 10/10 for the episode.

In a so far disappointing season (other than Fate nothing really had been good), this comes like a burst of fresh air. The animation, production values and music are top notch. They had a good budget it seems. Now that they have my interest I just hope they slow down the story a bit so we can understand the world a bit better.

The main guy is about as irregular an MC as I've seen. He's like Onizuka/Space Dandy but with a ginger fro and with mad ninja skills. I suppose the demon girl will be a tad more 'conventional'

I cannot imagine this show doing to well with the otaku crowd unless a lot of very young females in various state of undress start showing up pronto.

Haha, Pirates of the Caribean 2 dejavu, but wow what a nice animation totally feel in love with that.
The mainchar doesn't appeal to me at all which is awkward, I guess i don't like his looks, but what do I care, I mean it's frigging cool and epic... just wow o.o

Compared to other series that aired this fall shingeki no bahamut is severely underrated. Not sure how this will do in Japan because of how un-anime it is but I do hope people appreciate it for what it is because it deserves a lot of praise.

Pretty much of what I expected. Absurd characters and story(?) with good animation including some unsightly CG here and there.

Found the two main characters rather annoying. Weird and different enough to keep me watching for now, tho.

There are always the game fans(i guess)... if they give a shit. Let's wait for more episodes before saying that a show is underrated. Oh and is this 1 cour?

Fun episode! I was on the fence on whether trying this out or not, but now I'm glad I gave it a chance.
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

Wow, this anime looks really impressive.

Animation is smooth and fluid, making it looks like a movie.

I don't really like the main character, mostly because of his hair, but he seems to be funny and skillful.

I a sure going to enjoy this.

I am pleasantly surprised how good the episode was. I kind of just decided to watch this on a whim, didn't have that much interest, not I'm really happy I did.

This has to be one of the better episodes this fall. Excited for the next episode.

Wowee zowee, totally blown away! It's not often you get an anime that is utterly fantastic in every way, but here one is! Great writing, great characters, great setting and tone, gorgeous visuals, and literal buckets of fun and adventure oozing from every pore. Yes, yes, yes.

Just stay good for the love of god -- I can't take another anime disappointment. STAY GOOD.

Starting to think I suffered some kind of injury, because this felt incredibly below average to me.

Just nothing really stood out to me. A kind of goofy start and sure seeing that girl beat the stuffing out of the demon had some entertainment value, but it didn't feel like anything that special.

The start was really over the top and I think it might've put some people off, it was kind of unnecessary. Further in the episode was actually alright. The animations are nice and smooth, the setting is generic, but just the kind I like in fantasy. The only thing that I didn't enjoy is Favaro. Amira seems really cool (hot female demon... cough), not sure what to think of Kaiser, but Favaro is just annoying. I get it that he's supposed to be the funny guy of the show, but he looks like an asshole to me.

-Things happened
-Distinct characters with their own goals
-Exciting action with worthwhile downtime

It's almost like someone actually directed this.

Anyone else feel like Favaro and Kaisar seem to parallel Mugen and Jin from Samurai Champloo? The only difference is that they're far more incompetent, and unbearable. Who the hell came up with those two character design? If Favaro was drawn to intentionally make the audience want cut off his balls after setting his stupid ginger afro on fire, then they've succeeded.

Edit:
The more I think about it, the more it seems like they've straight-up ripped off the entire plot of Samurai Champloo, and gave it a medieval fantasy setting. Amira is Fuu, Favaro is Mugen, Kaiser is Jin, and Helhiem is the destination/where the man who smells of sunflowers is.

I should really avoid reading episode discussions before I even watch the actual episode. Having an idea of what happens really dampens the experience. But anyway, still a very solid episode -- I already like Favaro, the art style & animation is just straight up beautiful and I can see the plot moving to some pretty epic things.

4/5!
