Lord Haruka = Saltiest Man Ever lol

More Shirayuki and Zen moments are always a good thing but my favorite part of the episode besides those two was this black haired guy

I can already tell that this guy is going to make things even better lol xD

Shirayuki sure is fearless! Obi is an interesting character due to his cheerful yet enigmatic personality.

The episode felt empty. I hoped for more depth in characters. The confrontation between lord and Shirayuki could have been interesting if lord would have had some reasonable arguments why Shirayuki is such a bad influence to prince. Now this is just another light shoujo series, which had potential to be something more. At least Shirayuki is a fantastic lead character. I hope to get more about her becoming court pharmacist in the upcoming episodes and not this kind of boring and purposeless story that i got this week.

Shirayuki is certainly smart and capable.
When she heard that guy instructing the guards to forbid her entrance,
I expected her to do the cliche thing and misunderstand the situation.
Instead, she seeks the prince and verifies things herself. A wise decision on her part.



This is so me after staying awake for more than a day.

How is the manga? I'm semi-intrigued and tempted to just read ahead and get into the meat of the story and characters. Is it all shoujo or is there a bit more action/things to keep it interesting?


Well, I don't want to spoil things.. and I don't know what you mean by "is it all shoujo?" xD Do you mean to ask if it will focus on Shirayuki and Zen relationship? All I can say is that there will always be Zenyuki's moments.. but the story will now focus on Shirayuki and the obstacles she'll face in the palace.



And there will be lots of new interesting characters that will be introduced in the upcoming episodes. ^^



Speaking of new characters.. I can't wait to see Little Ryuu! <3

Yes! I have to say Obi's seiyuu did a great job! And I'm glad they didn't ruined his character's design.

Things will definitely become more interesting since he's now here. XD

I love how the interactions between Shiraiyuki and Zen are being handled. It would have been so easy for this to fall into a cliche romance route and have the two of them get embarrassed at almost every turn, but there is NONE of that with these two, no awkwardness between them at all, and I LOVE it. It really feels like they're starting out as good friends instead of being instant love interests. THIS is what I want to see from a romance anime.

"red hair omg so pretty, must capture her and make her my lover"
"red hair omg so unique, must capture her and sell her to nobles"
"red hair omg evil, must stop meeting her immediately using force"

really original concept so far... eh.

I mean the characters are enjoyable, but the plot is something a elementary schooler could've written.

Actually "red hair has no status and must therefor not meet the prince" or alternatively "Girl with no status, must prevent her from meeting the prince" but I guess you can't even observe such an obvious thing, even though it presents it to you on a silver platter.

Also with how you said it, you make it sound like Prince Zen thinks that Shirayuki is evil and has therefor ordered people to use force against her, so she can't meet him and that just didn't happen in the episode at all.

Also simplification of something doesn't prove it's bad writing if it did I could say
and then say that Clannad After Story has writing a elementary schooler could come up with, and after your logic I would be right.

the red hair part is something the lord mentioned early in the episode, social status came with it. I just didn't bother using a complete sentence. The events so far (first 3 episodes) have been almost identical. So yeah it's unoriginal.

Sure the red hair part gets tiresome after some time, but what isn't unoriginal f.ex. Some would claim that Clannad After Story's cute characters are unoriginal.
Here's what I conclude, you use the excuse of unoriginality when it's convienient for you or when you actually mean tiresome or repetitive.

Also I don't care if you didn't bother, lazyness isn't an excuse.

Please use the right words to describe what is bothering you the next time.
Unrelated: I want to thank you for reminding me that Overlord has aired.

But it IS unoriginal and repetitive. I mean, the author is basically picking up and reversing really common shoujo tropes. It is still enjoyable but she should just move on :v (as she does in the next chapters)

I don't know what it is about this anime but I dislike it. The main characters voice, the story so far, what's gonna happen next. Just all, bad. I know its a romance heavy anime but I'm not getting the romance feel.

Considering Shirayuki had to flee her home because the prince in a neighboring kingdom wanted to force her to be his concubine, I think there is every good reason why Zen might be taking his time in building the relationship. As for Shirayuki, it looks like she wants to stand on her own merits when she eventually stands beside Zen. I don't mind if they take a little time to set the romance up, as it looks to me that both of them are very interested in each other.
Please don't feed the trolls!

I understand what you're saying, but at least she didn't have to be rescued this time (or I should say was successful in rescuing herself, for once), which I think is significant.

Anyway, the red hair almost seems like a metaphor. If she was less of a character she'd curse it and try to dye it or cut it all off or hide it under a hat or hood all the time. Instead she just moves forward, never even commenting on it, let alone apologizing. I think she's a very original character for this type of story, and the path she took this episode showed her continuing to make her own way on her own terms.

Is it always going to be like this from now on? Shirayuki gets attacked or kidnapped or whatever else by someone and then she defends herself while having small moments with Zen who will show up in the end anyway and have the final word?

I hope it doesnt tbh because the test next time does sound interesting and I don't want to drop it before I see where exactly can she reach by herself.

Shirayuki is pretty badass. She didn't react much to the whole situation. Having an arrow suddenly shot right in front of me like that, I would probably have fell down the whole stairs x)

Fuck that noble jackass who judge people by their rank. In the end, I guess it is just representative of the old time... Oh well, I guess he understood his place and won't do that again.

Not sure I'm gonna continue with this. Female MC is mildly interesting but the supporting cast and (story?) isn't engaging me at all yet, aside from the first ep which wasn't bad. So far the Ost is better than the anime.

[center][size=90]Even in the midst of conflict, this anime retains a lighthearted tone that pushes such conflict away from being terribly serious. This isn't an inherently bad feature, of course. This anime gives off feel-good vibes while being predictable, which goes quite along the course of the fairytale-like theme. There's a very careful balance, in this case, between making the conflict seem too trivial versus making it seem too serious for the tone of the anime.
I like how there's an emphasis on Shirayuki's strength that sets her apart from the traditional fairy tale protagonist; however, the creators also did a good job of showing her and Zen's relationship through her, albeit minimal, reliance on Zen. Even though she can get through most of conflicts herself, it takes a little help from Zen to triumph completely. And it's nice to see that, how they don't make Shirayuki seem weak while still showing the growing relationship of how both Zen and Shirayuki need each other.
However, there are some holes in the development of the relationships. I feel like I needed a little bit of plot to cover how Shirayuki ended up running into the castle every day, how her and Zen became more and more close...I mean, it is obvious on how such things would play out, but I feel like the transfer from her and Zen meeting each other to becoming 'best friends' was a little bit sudden.
In addition, the resolution of the conflict with Lord Haruka seemed a little underwhelming and forced in this episode. He was so strong-willed about separating the two but seemed to give up very easily when faced with resistance from Shirayuki.
For now, I'll content myself with how this friendship blossoms into something more.

Episode was meh-ish. Somehow it felt like something was missing, idk. At least she didn't need rescuing in this one.

^This. And this show is proving (so far) to be your typical and cliched shoujo anime with just a few tweaks here and there.

Zen is actually a pretty good character, too. Thank God he isn't two-dimensional, I am so thankful for that. And dat blonde bastard was annoying as hell, go eat grass or something. At least he learned his lesson. And at least he has the dignity to judge instead of foolishly following his own visions.

Obi was introduced but surprisingly, I am leaning towards Zen as a romantic choice for Shirayuki... at least so far.

This anime is love, nothing less.

Enter Obi! Man, I almost forgot how cool Obi's entrance was! Back when I read the manga, I didn't know at that point I would like him so much in the long run. Same with Kiki and Mitsuhide. I love all five of them!
