Well I definitely think that Yao girl is my favorite of the four. I hope she's a badass in the fights to come. That aside I was disappointed to learn this show was being split up as I thought all 24 episodes were going to air consecutively. I've definitely enjoyed what we've gotten so far, I'm just hesitant really to give any further thoughts. 7/10 so far.

Wanted this to be a continuous 24-episode anime with no seasonal break in between. :( Now I gotta wait till January for the next half.

Very pleasant anime and I really like this. Maybe Yao the dark elf will be added to Itami's harem in the second cour. And I can't stop laughing at the birth of the new fujoshi society in Pina's circle of friends. xD

This first cour gets an 8/10 from me and the second cour might even deliver better stuff! :)

I know how you feel. I want to watch the next episode in a week, too. But, seeing that the last few episodes weren't translated on time, I guess the anime studio had to struggle to meet the deadlines and was about to fail. So, we should allow them to have a break for a while.

Princess Pina and her pure joy when she got that yaoi comic!! I feel bad for Yao. Hopefully her request would be reconsidered and completed.

I guess we just have to wait til November! The agony of waiting!!

Oh they end it without doing a cliffhanger. And it's a good thing.
And damn it! Why this turned to split cour! And it's till Winter 2016! (January)
Anyway the way it ended I'll give it a 7 (or 8?) out of 10 score over all.

It ended as if another episode was to about come out next week. It really didn't feel like ending, I thought that the sudden appearance of the dark elf would indicate the ending with fight against the fire dragon as it would tie up the series nicely but nope.

Well there is already next season planned so they didn't need to do anything flashy and at least they are following the story.

As for the this anime in general though. I don't know what it has but somehow it was one of the three animes that I continued to watch weekly as it came out in this season rather than catching up to it now that the season is ending. Maybe it was the fact that I really expected to drop this anime when first seeing it as it seemed like another "stupid, harem advertisement for LN" but my expectations were met and far exceed (because they were extremely low in the beginning). Because of that though I can't really complain and I enjoyed it a lot. The only part that I didn't like that much were few episodes in the real world, they were somewhat boring, other than that another pretty average anime to watch and I expected lesser than that. Now I will even try out manga.

I know i'll miss this show for the next few months.

I always love the military scenes, the fighter pilots giving itami a thumbs up as they pass by the little details like how the pilots love open airspace. Highlight of the ep for me was probably the scene where they're in the cafe having a discussion of how to bring the fire dragon down with real weapons. Had a huge grin on my face the whole scene. That's what my favorite part of this show really is, taking as realistic as you can get from an anime and slamming it into fantasy.

8/10 series might die from Rory deprivation during fall season.

really dissapoint in term visual redesign charater the studio turn every single female into ugly moe style rather than improve cute realistic style from Light novel and content tone down a lot of violent visual effect when there're superior version like manga to compare with plot pretty great but some cutting really disspoint.i think the split cour will not fix this,well i really hope i am wrong this time 6/10 another Maoyuu Maou Yuusha situation again.

That dark elf really started to annoy me with her behavior


Either way pretty good series overall, though that was a pretty awkward way to end a first cour if they're now splitting it up

Promising start, first 3 episodes very really good honestly, but after that it devolved into what LN adaptations usually devolve to - directionless mediocrity that focuses more on grills and fanservice. How disappointing.

9/10, if the second cour keeps up this quality it's gonna be 10/10 for sure.

In general, i quite enjoyed those 12 episodes, especially the stuff in the other World. However some parts were 'ehh?' or to Lolworthy in a serious situation. Also the parts in ''Real World'' or times where they go full ''Japan , fuck yeah'' made me feel a little uneasy sometimes.

I've been very happy with this adaptation. Its focused on the flow of the story, and it has assumed the viewers have been both educated and intelligent. Too many animes seem to be "dumbed down" these days.

In the Tavern Delilah was eavesdropping on the 'commanders'. There were (going by the uniforms) two Colonels and two Lieutenant Colonels siting at the table, so those must be the unit commanders of General Hazama's major subordinate units. The two Colonels were also present at the meeting the General had with Yao. I can't understate how appreciative I am that this show depicts a realistic modern military in so many ways. Best I've seen in anime.

Yao's character has been fleshed out very nicely. Leilei is, in several ways, far more mature than her 15 years, and seems to be determined to become as powerful as she can. I hope that drive does not eventually consume her. As big a fan as I am for Kuribayashi and Rory, I keep getting reminded (in this episode and the last one) of how much I also like Kurokawa, too. Sergeant Major Kuwabara ("Pops") has also been a very good support character.

We had the continuing efforts of Pinya working with the peace faction, the JSDF continue to make it abundantly clear that they're not here as conquistadores, it looks as if Bozes and some knights have formed a manga translating circle, and a new plot handle popped up with Delilah.

Overall an ambitious anime which, thus far, has managed to hang together with only a few small bumps in the road. Well done, A1. Keep up the good work, and I am very much looking forward to January.

The idea of imperial fansubbers is pretty funny. I dont know why the elder elves called the girl dark elf one of the "wisest". She's clearly isnt. The second season will be on january 2016 kinda suck but I can wait. This series is definitely one of my favorite this season.

a lot of people are saying this was boring but honestly i loved seeing the culture clashes especially since there was such a substantial gap in technological advancement between japan and pinas empire. speaking of which pina was a really interesting character and i liked her slightly more than three main girls. my second favorite would probably be lelei and third would be tuka. i cant wait to see if they resolve tukas dead daddy issues. this was the one show i looked forward to the most every single week 10/10 cant wait till winter

Well this sudden ending definitely took me by surprise. I didn't notice the change in the episode count until a few days ago, so I never took the time to think about what score I wanted to give this (since I usually wait until the last couple of episodes).

An ok buildup episode for what's to come in January. It was funny seeing Pina's BL obsession again. And I find it funny how Yao is obviously speaking Japanese, but they have to make it seem like she's speaking a different language. But you can only do so much with that, so I'm not gonna hold that against the producers or anything. I guess I'll give this a 6.5/10.

I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Well this was quite an entertaining anime, though not that good tbh. Shame it ended quite abruptly, but I hope their decision for a split cour will turn out for the better.

Also lack of Rory in the last episode made me sad :(

You're most likely wrong.
Its been said it to be split cour, not "the first season is split cour".
The former means it is aired in two non-continous seasons, while the latter would've
meant it had more than one season, where the first is split cour (2 x12 + X x12).

Obviously I would've wanted the latter, but..

Whatever with this series. I feel like it could have been much better if the fighting have more purpose and not one-sided every time. Fan service is lame and Rory gets too much attention compared to that elf who is my best girl. The female nobles are dumb. They get the ranks not because of merit, but because they were born with silver spoon in their mouth.

In fact, everyone in the fantasy world apart from the trio following Itami is dumb as shit, from the bandits to the wizard to everyone who thinks repeatedly assaulting an enemy that have beaten them multiple times is a good idea.

The things I like are production value (particularly Ride of the Valkyrie soundtrack) and the concept of modern technology taking on the fantasy world. Itami is a very interesting character also, going from otaku to badass soldaten.

I wish more people actually died in this anime, allied personnel as well as enemy and not just enemy all the way. This is a military anime, after all.

6/10 so far but I guess they have not gotten to the meat of the story yet. For example, Smaug is still at large. The Empire is still not giving up despite losing so much. I will be back for the next cour.

But honestly, that is a poor way to force fans wait for 3 months. Should have gotten a cliffhanger or something more conclusive than this middle of everything.

It seems they moved the focus away from the (apparently) most important reason why she was chosen.
From the manga:
Yao: "Gladly! But why would you ask this of a woman like me? Thodolm is stronger than I am."
"It is -- because you're a woman."
"Do you understand what I mean? Are you prepared?"
Yao: Of course
"Really? Are you sure"?
"They might be really ugly."
Yao(?): "Um..isn't it fine if I'm the messenger?"
Yao: "If the flame dragon can be slain through the sacrifice of my body, then so be it."

In other words, same as when Pina wanted to calm Itami & co's assumed anger when they broke the treaty.

5/10. Okay series with a whole bunch of really dumb elements. Could've been a drama about clash of cultures instead of girls fawning over an otaku self insert protagonist who happens to be in the military.

So can the dark elf understand Jap or not? During Lelei's interpretation, sometimes she doesn't seem to understand what they are saying (e.g. being unable to fight the fire dragon), but sometimes it just seems that she understands (e.g. that they would be crossing the border with a large army and declaring war).

Looking forward for the second cour.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

They skip the translation parts, and sometimes use "..he/she said".
You can assume Lelei continously translated throughout, and other parts may not
even require that.
Approval, denial, and so on can often be read by bodylanguage alone.

The parts where she didn't seem to understand (unable to fight the flame dragon etc) is
most likely more about disbelief than understanding or not.

Weird place to end the first cour, but in a way it's good since it'll probably pick up with Yao asking Itami for help.

Guess I'll take this break as a chance to start the LN and manga.
