Audio and visuals were pretty good. I also like that the character designs are not the usual bishounens/bishoujos.

Though it felt a little generic and used a rule of cool,it was surprisingly enjoyable.

Fun episode. I'm always a sucker for anything that revolves around bounty hunters.

One of the few anime that actually lived up to the hype! Great directing, great pacing, great animation, GREAT art! We only got a prologue into the story but I'm excited to find out what's going to happen next and I'm sure it's not going to disappoint. Best girl confirmed for Amira and wow, is she powerful. Favaro is a magnetic character, he just stole the show. As far Kaisar... hm, there's hope for him yet.

Looking forward to next episode. I can already tell this is going to be my favorite anime of 2014.



Does this actually have any hype though? Is my question. Guess this may be my AOTS season. Fix the pacing and be 2-four and I've found a favourite anime.

Very, very good. Blew any expectations I had for this series out of the water. I can only hope the rest of the series is as good as this.

Not bad, not bad at all.
I am kinda impressed.

Whoever decided that pressing the point that it was based on a card game in the summary, needs to be fired. I know a lot of people who were put off and unsure of this show because of that. And yet this show really seem to have NOTHING to do with card games. It's completely fantasy/ adventure. I hope more people give this a chance since it's really quite awesome.

*sigh* Is this a trend now to have really douchebaggy protagonists?

How is that guy likeable in any way? And he even looks the part, too, ...really, really stupid.



Aside from that it the anime is really cool... but my god, the character, just why?!

What's going on?!

I thought game adaptations were supposed be awful, right? That was a solid first episode!

I don't know whether it can keep it up, but for now I'm glad I gave it a shot.

I'm out of words, that episode amazed me considering i wasn't expecting any thing.

Characters are 100% Lovable, Favaro is a hell lot of fun Character, i really liked him!
I'm interested in Amira tho.. i wonder what kind of character she will be...

OST was freaking epic, cant praise it enough, and the Animation was astonishing-such high quality CGI! designs were pretty weird, but i guess ill get used to it.. maybe ill even get to like them ^^, and the action scenes were done great!

I have to say i'm afraid that the storyline will start getting down-hill.. well, lets continue being optimistic, i'm definitely continuing watching this show, it may even be my favorite of the season! Cant wait for the next Episode! :D

God I hope they tone down that MC's level of obnoxious since other than that I found myself enjoying this quite a lot. Didn't really read much into this series beforehand but the world lore and rules definitely pique my interest as it felt a lot like some grand JRPG.

I find this quite unique; the setting was pretty western, the characters are not a school theme, the music was pretty good, and MAPPA doing this was.... amusing. Although sometimes I might get bored if its too western, or if the story and character didn't meet my expectations.

Though it is a great start and the action in here was pretty fluid. I'm going to enjoy this :D

That's just the art style.

Ohh that was very different from any I've seen so far. It's probably because of what other people mentioned, it felt western. For some reason, it felt a little Disney to me at parts. Hmm as for Favaro, many people seem to like him. I think he's okay so far. Maybe I'll like him later on. The animation was amazing and the character designs are nice too. Liking them lips. Seems like it'll be a quite interesting anime.

It was pretty dope. Liked the whole fantasy aspect, character and environment designs were pretty cool and story is yet to be shown so I'm waiting on that. Regarding 3DCGI I'd say it's some of the best applied instances of CGI I've seen so far. Not sure if it's the textures or the way of applying to the frame, but alongside FSN Ultimate Blade Works it's definitely some of the best CGI usage I've seen in anime. Everywhere else I've seen it, my stomach turned and it my eyes started hurting after moments of exposure, and so this has really given me a flash of possibilities CGI could open in anime. Regardless not a big fan of this stuff, but it seems to work in SnB: Genesis :)

The male MC design bothers me a bit...

Not sure about the character design for the male MCs. I mean, it's nice to have something different, but they look a bit weird.

The demon girl in bikini armor..well, at least it's unlikely she will ever wear less after the inevitable power up....unless she goes totally naked like just a bit earlier.

Some of the CGI like on the aquaduct or whenever Bahamut was shown was noticable, and it does throw me off a bit, but the rest was okay. If they used it besides there it was not noticable, so it's okay.

The story is interesting so far. She's a demon, and yet she gets fooled so easily? Unless he does know a way, and he just doesn't know that himself set..

That's not the right word to use, unless you meant that it looked at your interest secretly like some shy kouhai.

piqued is the correct word.

LOL that's right.
Thanks for the correction, slight mistake there as I haven't slept yet at the time so I'm prone to grammatical errors when I'm tired.
However when used out of context it isn't that bad since its the first episode and is one to keep an eye on.


Nah, it's good. Just glad you didn't take it like I harpooned your or something.

That was fun compressed in a single episode. The MC is awesome and the comedy was actually well-placed. This is definitely one of the best of the season based on the first episode.

Seriously, imagine how many people that don't frequent forums or anything and only go by the synopsis, half of them will see "card game" and run away and never look back.

I have been looking for a medieval ages/fantasy anime for a while now, so this was a really big surprise for me considering how I haven't heard anything about it before today. Overall i really enjoyed it. The action was good, the characters were likable, and I love how they managed to put in comedic moments without putting in those annoying as hell, over-exaggerated chibi moments that totally ruins other anime in the same genre for me. I also liked that there was minimal fan service. The setting was also really unique, in a way it sort of reminded me of the Elder Scrolls video game series and I like that it's a unique setting from the usual Japanese setting, similar to how Attack on Titan had a unique and refreshing setting.

I think i'll be picking this one up, and am definitely looking forward to the next episode.

Lol, I think shows use characters like him not because they're actually good people, but because they're interesting, and they won't be boring to watch. You can do a lot of exploration with characters like these and maybe even see some growth

I understand how you feel though, I myself just began to appreciate these types of characters (sometimes). Also, there are other leads to balance him out, so it's not like it'll just be about him and his douchebaggery. The other male lead seems like the noble honest type, so there's some good contrast there

I shall dedicate some minutes to say the following:
This first episode was awesome, and easily one of the top three of the season (so far). The epic music, the epic animation, and the epic background story made this an epic episode.
