Yeah, good show. I was definitely expecting some kind of mindless ecchi-harem and I was so damn wrong. The political and government issues were very well handled. Not too much action but the battle with the red dragon was just fine. And the one with Rory and the soldiers! damn. I liked this passive girl, Lelei. I didn't care too much about Tuka, she wasn't very relevant this season. My favorite of course was Rory. Such a badass!
Fine and entertaining show overall. Amazing ending song.

Naa, they really are into those "arts" themselves as well, you would know if you remember ep 9. Plus the JSDF knows they are being surveyed, they actually want them to see and let them know the JSDF's capabilities in hopes that the Empire will stop the war in a peaceful manner.

It was skipped in the anime, however, that Piña in the original novel tried to pick up some weapons from the blood bath at Hakone to get them back to the Empire. I know Piña and her girls love the art. But they are soldiers at the same time. I'm not saying they are malicious at all but I just mean it is natural and how they should be to begin with.
I read the manga as well. So am aware of the "deleted" scenes from the manga. The novel has even more details of the story.

This was a fun show, not particularly good, but fun.

It seems like an odd place to end the season; an episode or two earlier would have worked better.

One of the things that's really been bugging me about this show is that all of the prominent fantasy-world characters are female (and young or young-in-appearance). It would have been more interesting with more diversity.

Guess they split the episodes into two seasons to wait for the cooling down of the anti-war bill protests in Japan right now...

Why the heck did they stop at an awkward time? it doesn't feel like 1 season at all and I'm at a lost as to how to rate this, how can you rate a show halfway through? it's not a bad show by any means but they don't even try to end this half on a tranquil note and we got a half-baked hype instead.

Oh well..

Good episode. As much as i agree with the decision not to send an army to help Yao, i kinda feel bad for her.
Nice to see Lelei using her knowledge really well to expand her abilities.

Great series overall. Good pace, good set of characters, decent plot.

solid 8 for me, cant wait for the 2nd cour in 2016!

agree with you, though its considered a cour and not really a season i guess.. initially i thought it was gonna be a 24-episoder but just realised they cut it into 2 12s.

The anime ended and still I wasn't able to see Itami's real capabilities D: I mean, he was just lucky... or happened to be at those locations and situations which gave lead him to the praise.

While it was not the best anime of the season, it certainly was one of the favorites of mine.

And surely Itami the best char of the season for me :D He's real kewl~

Looking forward to the next season in Jan now :D

That was a pretty amusing episode albeit a little slow, I’m liking Yao’s character a lot tbh and judging from the title of the next season they’ll be helping her which I’m looking forward to see. Overall the season was pretty interesting with some cool fights and characters. Hopefully the second will be just as good or better.

A quick question to those who've read the novel: Was there really a scene where Pina asked for Itami's records?

Hey, at least it reduces the chances of going the A-1 route. (Strong first half, shitty second half)

The story about the dark elf, they pulled too long, without coming to anything. End of season not so bad, just do not think that show much pride in the way they are corrupt individuals beyond the Gate, with the well-being that is in Japan, is a source of pride to be advertised, and for me it shows how the civilized world today is a source of problems and not so obvious benefits; then everyone has his own ideas. Returning to the TV series, the story was quite fragmented stretching enormously important events. During the narration then, not only the last episode, he noted a certain inconsistency in the way of character. Drawings and animations, maintain sufficient quality in this episode, well below other anime of the summer that have enjoyed better treatments, oh well!

My vote, for now, is 7/10.

I seriously didn't realise this was the final episode of the first cour, odd way to end it. Well I guess it was an alright first cour.

That was a rather anti climatic ending. In the manga they ended pretty much on Chapter 29, but decided not to introduce
which atleast would have added a little bit of climatic feel.

Manga is still ongoing (up to 48 chapters I think) so wonder what they are going to do for a final? Hopefully not as anti climatic as this episode

Ugh, that was a terrible point to end the anime at. I found the last few episiodes very interesting.

7/10. The last half was amused me, even though the overall presentation of this anime is poor. I'll most likely watch the second season this January.

Anime stuffs around with boring irrelevant stuff a lot (is that BL joke still funny? Really?), is often hamfisted with the auto-fellatio "all hail Japan! Long live Japan!", and often times it's plain stupid, wasting the really interesting premise. Ending the season out of nowhere also leaves me a bit sour.
Still, the premise is good, series was enjoyable, and I found myself looking forward to it, so 7/10 from me.

Soo.. they ended like this huh..?
Well if the second half quality gets better or at least remain then its alright.
I wouldn't want the animation to drop.. but still.. to wait one season till next year. T^T
This is one of the most enjoyable anime this season to sit back relax and enjoy.
Hmmm the fire dragon subjugation later would have some good action.
Itami might get some spotlight. woots.

I'm going to be frank about this.

> Didn't like how America was portrayed in this.
> Mille feuille is not a Japanese dessert, it's French.
> I understand that Japan has to be the hero in this, but it was infuriating as an American to disregard the existence of other countries and only display Japan to the Other World. Japan shouldn't get credit for everything. But I guess everything in baby steps.

> Itami is wonderful, but is he worthy of Gary Stu status?

Right. It was showing on AniChart as a fall anime until about a week or two ago.

Even the official on-air schedule hasn't been updated properly. They'd been falling behind on posting the PVs, and today, they finally posted the PV for episode 12, which has already aired.

I dislike this moment when all your great anime end T_T. I am looking forward to watch the new cour. Rory, Itami, Lelei made this anime so enjoyable. The politics part and the battles are interesting.
This episode is really good, it more focused on the fantasy world and it's a good choice, imo.

Edit : Rory best girl !

Split season ending meh... As a final episode I don't have anything to say it was average at the very best. Overall though I love this series so far. It's "realistic" in it's own way. The author gave it some though of what would hapen if anime characters invaded our world :P I love how within all the SOL and Comedy when the action matter shit always get real with blood and dismembered bodies. Itami is very likable as a main character and his harem is god damn awesome too :3 Rory best girl though hand down. Season 2 GOOO!!!

Nice finale episode to this season. A sequel was already confirmed and it stopped at a good point. Looking forward to see how Itami and the group decide to help Yao. I'm also curious to see how they will adapt "that" scene from the manga. xD

Overall this series was one of my top ones of the season. The story line is defintely the main highlight of the show. It has very good characters with an adventurous feel to it. There is so much potential with this series and I hope it does very well.

One thing I've noticed about this series is that it is pretty soft compared to the manga as that is more dark and deep themed although this may be due to the age rating. Nevertheless it's a great series and the author who wrote this was in the JSDF in reality so I have to say the elements/materials used in the army were very nicely detailed. It combines a lot of theories such as elves, magic and modern warfare properties which make it very interesting. I also like how they put the social factors to an efficient use into a fantasy themed series. Looking forward to the second season! ^^

Bunch of casuals complaining about not getting a predictable climatic forced 12 episode action sequence. This ep was good, rather than ending a conflict, it started an arc to leave you anticipating the next cour. It also took time to reflect on the ripple effect that Itami has caused with the people and how the arrival of the JSDF has changed the Special Region's culture with it's community development. 5/5 ep. This portion of the series gets a 7/10 from me.

Well then, whilst I cannot say I'm discontent about this episode and the ending of season 1.
I also cannot deny that this first season was amazing.
A very, very good start to the anime the first few episodes were entertaining to say the least. Afterwards trying to establish relationships and some worldbuilding, that was fitting albeit a bit boring.
The last few episodes were kinda boring and the story didn't really progress. For example the last two episodes wasted on this dark elf girl. She is very hot but if she isn't gonna appear in the 2nd season as a main this is kinda pointless. For good animation, a reasonably enjoyable OP and ED plus a good MC this anime gets a final rating of 8/10 from me. May the 2nd season be even better.

I thought it'll be 24 episodes together. At least that was the case, before i lost my internet connection for a month (moving).

9/10, enjoyed the entire show, and can't wait for more!
