Why is Horn Skuld the only girl in this entire anime that doesn't have the face of a 10 year old? Has no one told the character designers that if you make a girl as tall as a man, give her noticeable tits, but then give her an infantile face she looks fucking stupid lmao?

Also Krul's entire design is more gross every time, when will we finally be rid of this creepyass loli pandering sexualised child that has "she's a vampire so it doesn't matter!!!!" plastered on her forehead as though that magically makes the fact that she looks like she could be in a genderbent Boku No Pico ok? I expect this shit from ecchis, not vampire shonen, jesus christ.

The episode started out fine and all but then there was a huge drop in both art and animation quality right after the airplane crashed. So many stills and skipped frames. What the hell WIT studio? I'm disappointed.



I mean what the hell am I even looking at?

The pacing is still terrible but at least we got to see more of Mika.

2/5


LOL that's some scooby-doo level shit right there xD

A decent episode overall

But Bathory got offed like that? A bit anticlimatic.


The anime does its job as a promo nonetheless, I'm so reading the manga.

I don't think Mika vs Guren will happen. Bathory will probably interfere.

Nice episode, I never doubted this anime, it's slowly picking up. Might get into manga once first season is over

Not a terrible episode but not a great one. That's kind of how I feel about this anime; enjoyable nonetheless. It was nice finding out a little more about the Mika storyline next weeks episode looks to be promising. Owari no Seraph really does remind me of a worse Attack on Titan though.

I think they'll just cross swords for a moment, and they added it to the prewiew to make us believe fight will really happen. That's why I wrote that

Also from preview, I think one being stabbed is Mika, by Yu.

Why can't Guren be the protagonist of this anime ? :/

It would make this show better.


Because since 2000, the main character of a shonen manga cant be older than 20.


Is this really true? What about 25-? or having a timeskip that makes the character above 20?

On topic: Shit will go down next episode, glad to know Mika's not a "true" vampire

I just can't get into the show. I think it's the main characters. They irritate me too much.

But it's almost over, so I'll just stick out this cour.

Both animation and artwork went to shit in this show.
Then they get into a war zone and everything is still so slow instead of fast crazy action and war. I was frustrated and bored every minute they were just standing there, i felt like throwing something on my TV.
And you damn stupid arrow guy. Do you need someone to tell you to use your fucking weapon? You see a helicopter, shoot you stupid bloody moron!!! You are the only one with a long rage weapon. Who the fuck to you expect to shoot the damn thing down? Idiot!
This show could have been a lot better but is being destroyed by bad technical department and an untalented director. Probably no budget ether.


Also lol at Mika walking away from that noble after getting down from that poll at around 11 minute. What was that walking animation? Was he perhaps making rehearsal for a fashion week for Victoria secret. Please someone make a gif of that so i can laugh my ass off.

What you people are complaining about is the ART STYLE lowering a bit in quality.
If you want high quality, you have to pay for blu ray, otherwise deal with it.


GosuGian said:

ART STYLE as the word says is the style of the art(big eye characters or small eye characters etc). It can't drop in quality because is just a style. The artwork is what drops in quality. For Christ sake we have a bunch of people calling bad artwork as animation and now people calling artwork as art style.

Interesting.. the vampires have helicopters and aircraft in a post-apoc world

that last helicopter attack was stupid. Yoichi shoots it with a demon arrow, but the explosion is delayed enough for it to shoot 3 missiles...

This episode was decent I guess.
Thing the interested me most about this episode was Guren and his team. Guren would make this series much more interstesting if he was the main character... (at least for me that is.)

Manga readers: was that shit in the beginning with them taking out the helicopters and the team fighting some scrubs anime original too? My memory of the early chaps is a little vague.

Yeah that was all anime original, which is a good thing. I thought that first action sequence was a great choice since the manga had no sort of natural skirmishes like that so the war felt completely off panel. Plus it was animated pretty well imo, which can only mean good things for future eps. You don't see studios that are really hurting on budget ADD action scenes that are fluid like that, so that tells me their priorities are straight and the climactic action scenes will at their best animation wise. It's just the direction and key animation almost everywhere else that is hurting the show.

Decent episode that pretty much added to the whole battlefield situation. It also showed some flashback of Mika deciding to only take Krul's blood from now on. Poor boy corpse that was left in the middle of the throne room, though. Can't wait for further interaction between Mika and Guren.

One of the better episodes this season. Glad to see the show taking itself seriously with the fighting against the vampires. And we also get to see the fruits of training from most of the newer recruits including Yuu of course.

Mito was also awesome this episode:

I hope we get to see more her in action; probably in the next cour though

Seems like episode managed to get some screen time for Mika again.



Exactly, we need to have more Mito.

OK OK soooo Bow and Arrow vs Apache Attack Helicopter.

Lets assume they are demon arrows and can destroy a helicopter in one hit even though an apache armors according to boeing can survive 12,7mm rounds all over and 23mm rounds on the engine and rotor.

Why the hell would the Apache get anywhere near close enough range to be hit by an arrow? Their Hellfire missiles can go up to 8km and their Hydra-70 rockets can go 10.2km. AND that is horizontal distance. Get the chopper up to their max altitude of 3.8-6.4km and fire from like 20km away from the other side of the bloody city. Silly vampires.

Low tier vampires using helicopters to kill humans because they're more efficient. Humans using magical demon weapons to kill vampires because it's hard getting technology. Sounds about right.

I didn't see any real problems except the bullet blocking from the helicopters. 4/5 if I could change my score, lol.

I also noticed on this discussion that the studio didn't do a good job with their frames. I use SVP, but looking at the anime from a vanilla perspective, it's bearable and not that bad. It looks better than most animes and their frames.

I believe that unless you know for sure that you don't like a concept, you should keep exploring it. Whether it be characteristics of people or a genre of some sort, you never know if you don't like it until you've seen quality work corresponding to that genre. Keep exploring until you've found something you enjoy, or something of quality. Then you know what's bad, what's good, and what isn't for you.

Huh, so it's Guren who meets Mikaela first and not Yuichiro. They'r really trying to drag out that inevitable meeting aren't they? At any rate, this was quite an enjoyable episode with a fair bit of action.

Also, I'm a bit confused with that pill? Do they only die from three of them if they take three in one go or do they die if they take three overall?
In one go, else it's pretty weird if they hand out a full box of pills to each of them, maybe a hint of selfdetruction but I don't think so... ;-)

Very good fighting scenes and the story about Mika was nice too.
Personally I think the second season will have more action than this one
What is the most cowardly and shameful thing in human conduct? It's when people with power and people who flatter them hide in safe places and extol war, force patriotism and self-sacrifice on others, then send them to the battlefield to die. For the sake of peace in the universe, before we continue this fruitless war with the Empire, mustn't we first start by exterminating such evil parasites? - Yang Wenli

I sure as hell hope the art and animation will improve the upcoming three episodes. Volume 4 of the manga (which will be adapted in the last three episodes) was amazing, especially compared to the first 3 volumes that were pretty dull.

This episode was pretty entertaining, but man, the animation really put me off.

I really agree with you, people need to know the difference!
Quality is different than the art work,
The art work is how its drawn,we can't do anything about it..
I really liked this episode though!

Well, I'm not really enjoying the show a lot, but it's only a few episodes until it's over so I thought "why not? Let's finish it"... but now apparently there will be a second cour? Hmmm, might as well drop it now... however, I want to see the Mika and Yu reunion, so I'll wait until that happens to decide wether to drop the show or not.
About the episode, it was slow and boring. But the cliffhanger was nice.

Next episode. Build ups are needed to make the fights more emotional and stuff. Rather than randomly pausing in the middle of a fight to start talking.

omg MTE. I was so frustrated by that moron

First he asked Hiiragi if guys from before had same bows as he does, bitch told him no, your weapon is way better, AND HE STILL FUCKING DID NOTHING. I would shoot god damn birds to try it out, let alone helicopters full with vampires who are trying to kill you all

Yoichi, why the heck do you need to wait for the others' signal to fire your arrows? I was, like, "Y U NO SHOOT?" and "U D ONLY LONG-RANGE TYPE!". SMH

That cliffhanger though. Damn! Mika vs. Guren. It's GDFR! XD
