this show has me tempted to go watch the live action series this is based off of, but was dissapointed to find it takes place in present day japan and it also reminded me that japan has a weird inability to direct live action camerwork properly, i still feel like giving it a shot one day

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

Funi translated maka hoshi as makai alchemist to avoid confusion between them and the church's priests.

The word in japanese for both is different, but translation both to priest would be strange.

And yes, Makai Knights can only be man. Makai Priests can be either man or woman.

Or, CG was almost watchable, or maybe I am getting accustomed. Still it would've been better if the transformations had been drawn.
Other that that a very good episode. Reminds me of The Witcher universe.

I hope that the badass woman has joined the crew. The prince now exiled might also be joining.

Not bad, the episode starts off in the field the rest of the cast, we now know who is the girl that you see in the Visual Key!
Narration nice, the cards are revealed little by little, the plot seems pretty clear now.
Drawings and animations are good, maybe the CG still has room for improvement.
The opening is cute, the ending a little less. Also the OST is valid is it binds well to the narrative.

Alfonso and the Queen got framed by Mendoza. New character: Emma, the Makai Alchemist. That priest was a fucking psychopath. I get why Leon sometimes hates his dad. Probably jealousy. Hahaha! Normal episode.

Herman is a pimp. I like the look of Leon's "berserk mode". Can't wait to see what will Alfonso do.

What's the difference b/w knights and alchemists? The later use magic to seal Horrors, or summon sort of single weapon instead a full Makai armor? puzzled why Funimation translated Hōshi as Alchemist

A-ha. It's clear now.

Well, if the current story is in medieval European-like setting, "the priest" description from daoism would be confusing. For one, alchemist did believe they could produce supernatural or super-materializational phenomena. For other, in Christianity, be it East Orthodox or Roman-Catholic (don't know about the other denominations), women cannot serve as priests. I doubt alchemists had this restriction.

I'm really liking the characters and the story. I think it's not as good as the first episode but I'm hoping it gets better :D The animation seems to be weird sometimes, like something is off. The faces they make don't stay consistent. Enjoying it the show overall.

new here. Well its look liked alfonso is also another eligible user of the GARO Armor with the knight of light reference and the rosary with GARO triangular emblem and that huge tapestry of the GARO armor. no wonder mendoza goes apeshit.

At least this episode finally addresses why a father-son team have separate Makai armors though one armor is always passed from father to son (like how Kouga got the armor from his father and how he passed it on to his son). I guess Makai armors can be passed from mother to son as well and I am guessing Leon's maternal grandfather was the previous Garo since women cannot be Makai Knights.

I wonder how Leon's automatic transformation worked. I also ponder if it goes hand in hand with the lost soul modes as well.

But finally in the next episode, we get Zaruba who is also from the tokusatsu series. Herman needs a madou ring himself. He is a character who would be perfect for one.

I am starting to like this more and more. The fight itself was done pretty well, hope we'll see Emma again.

Theres just something really really charming about this show.

Probably Herman.

More people should watch this.

Strange since renkinjutsu-shi is a true direct translation of alchemist anyway. But I guess you are trying to culturally put it into context as well for true official subs as opposed to fansubs.

Still, I prefer it if Amemiya himself did the designs for all the characters. The art work he did for this ps1 or ps2 game was really awesome.

imo the armors are pretty corny, but the show is enjoyable overall and the art is different from the rest, so it is definitely a show that isn't mistaken by any other this season

I'm really getting to like this show!
CGI is good, and overall animation is Great.

As many of us do, i'm kinda clueless to whats going on.. but i believe (and hope) that we will be explained that soon enough...

Didn't anyone but me felt that D.Gray-man there? reminds me of the first episode similarities to Berserk~

This op, its so awesome.. both Animation and music are Great.. I'm waiting for the next episode alright!

Hmm, it was ok. Compared to greatness of previous episode this time I was disappointed.
Somehow it felt like they ditched-away those dark-fantasy elements and turn this into regular shounen.
And I really don't like the design of those armors.

The witch is good and I like the prince but as for (typical-shounen character) Leon, I can't say.
The fight with torturer and the thing he turned it was also out of place.

Guess I had high hopes for nothing?

Emma is not a witch, she is a Makai Priestess/Alchemist. It's just she is accused of being a witch.

Emma...was that Paku/Park Romi's voice I heard? *checks* Indeed. This pleases me.

Indeed! A wild Romi Park appears! This show is even better now.

I'm surprisingly enjoying this. The anime is showing a lot of potential with the story, even if some of it is cliche.

Glad to hear Romi Park in this, especially since she won't be on Terraformars anymore.

14:56 it's time to do her

18:19 why didn't you transform

19:36 calm your golden stick

7/10 for this episode.
Nice OST.
Isayama Hajime should be awarded The Manga with The Highest Inconsistencies of Characters' Appearances.
He keeps performing multiple plastic surgeries on those Shingeki No Kyojin characters in a SINGLE chapter.
Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

Good episode with the conspiracy against the queen and Alfonso and the introduction of Ema. Intense fighting scene there with the priest-horror and Leon having troubles controlling his armor.

3dcg knights were more tolerable in this episode than the previous, probably because they appeared less in this episode

more intrigued by what is going to happen after watching this episode

still considering dropping
I don't consider myself a good judge.

Whale whale whale.. just now realized that Leon is voiced by Daisuke Namikawa while Ema is by Romi Paku.. Not bad :D. Plus, I sense death flags for Herman and the mother of Alphonso.. Hmm... Leon's dad is quite the playboy though

Leon out of control.
Alfonso gotta escape.
Mendoza's house now.
