JUNNA!

So an abandoned puppy gets picked up by Elias Ainz Ooal Gown and becomes his bitch and future waifu...

Lots of color and pretty art. It could use a bit more music though. A slow start, but it looks like we're going to be doing a lot of exploring.This should be fun.

What an great first episode, got me completely immersed in the world by the first 5 minutes. The world seems interesting and I already like the main characters. Looking foward to it.

OMG I LOVED IT.

The MC was adorable. Her desire for a family and home is so sad, and I hope she finds it. I can't wait to see her develop into a strong character.

I adored the mage. He was a cutie (in a weird way) and I loved the way he kept patting her head.

The fantasy setting was beautiful, and dayum I wish I was living in that cottage.

Also lol as if she was like 'yeah sure I'll come on a walk into a dark forest with some weird ass fairy with glowing red eyes'.

I can't wait for the next ep!

And so the main series is finally here. Pretty nice first episode. I'm really liking Elias so far.

The OVAs were pretty great, so I'm expecting the main series to be just as good, or even better. The forest scene was really pretty.

I was actually looking forward to this one all summer because I loved the ova eps, and resisted visiting the manga but this first episode isn't kinda living up to the hype. It wasn't bad...kinda cute here and there where Elias brought her into the bath and at the end where he drops a bomb like nothing on to her "you're going to be my wife". The awkwardness was kind of cute, but it definitely wasn't the direction that I was expecting the anime to go.
I'm going to keep watching to see where this goes.

Is Elias supposed to be a personification of the "Big Black Man stealing your women" because he looked like he just cucked the humans out of Chise?

Personally, I can't say I thought this episode was all that great. Haven't read the manga, so I don't know what's to come, but I thought this episode was okay. Honestly, I need to see more development between Elias and Chise first, because right now, their relationship seems contrived. I want something natural and slowly built like Spice and Wolf! Also, I was expecting a more serious tone on the fact that she was bought at a slave auction, but they seem to gleam over it. Oh, and I also hate the fact that they spoiled a lot in the opening, what the heck?!

I'm sure I'll feel differently about the series as we go through, but I'll see. Definitely not dropping though.

Compare to OVA, the pacing feel really smooth or normal now. As expected of wit studio, the art, adaptation, pacing, voice acting, soundtrack etc etc was upto the mark. flawless/5 for this episode. Personally, Elias kinda reminds me of ALL MIGHT :D

Don't worry about the auction, it will be explained eventually (well dunno if the anime will go that far, we'll see) but I can assure you it's not a plot hole.

Not really comfortable with the whole "I bought a wife" aspect, but I didn't care for that in the manga either of course. Other than that, perfect adaptation of the manga. Easily Studio Wit's best work already ( I hate basically everything else they've done), and easily their best animation to date. Soundtrack is already top tier, too.

I really can't stand JUNNA's voice. She sounds like a young girl trying to sing like an older woman. Then I google her and find out that's exactly what she is. It just doesn't sound like a "natural" tone. It's like when on America's Got Talent you get those 8 year old girls that try to sing a Whitney Houston song exactly like Whitney did. They can hit the notes but it sounds really forced and unnatural. Same issue I have with JUNNA. Maybe I'll like her when she gets older. I hope they got with someone else for the second cour opening.

1 episode is not enough to gauge that imo, who knows, the studio might skip a few things. If they won't skip anything then my guess would be that 24 eps will end around chapter 25-30 ish. This is a pretty chill series with lots of dialogue for the most part after all. There's action from time to time but it's not really the focus.

BOOOORING. All this show has done so far is shove it in your face how bad you should feel for the special snowflake protag because apparently, the whole universe is against her and everything that could go wrong does. What a waste of animation. Dropped.

Working off the assumption the pace won't change from how it was based off episode 1, is exactly what I meant. It's safe to assume it WILL change, but I wasn't sure how far along the specific event was. I wasn't sure if you knew it was 2-cour either (some people don't check). So if it was something that took place somewhere toward the "middle", knowing it was 2-cour could've been enough to safely say it will be in the anime.

Anywho, thanks for sharing your guess on all this stuff. They seem to be doing a good job so far. I only got a few chapters into the manga myself, and episode 1 seemed pretty spot on. I expect a lot of more peaceful stuff to be skipped, honestly, because a lot that doesn't make "good tv" but I still expect it will be one of the better anime of the year.

I think it has the potential to be anime of the year. The current adoption rate seems to be spot on so I hope the studio maintains this level. I was looking forward to this ever since I started reading the manga 3 years ago.

Then I remembered (lol, even though I brought it up) that it's 2-cour so if it's gonna be in my top "of the year" anime, it will be for 2018 because I count an anime for the year it ENDS in, not starts in. In that case, I already have my "Anime of 2017" earlier this year. The single-cour shows for this season don't seem to have the potential.

Sleigh Beggy is actually the correct way, and was how the OFFICIAL English release had it, I thought? Technically it should be "Sleih Beggey" if we want to get really accurate. Either way, "Sleigh beggy" is far more correct then "slay vega"

Gonna take a while getting used to "Sleigh beggy". I hadn't even known there was that huge a difference between "Slay Vega" and "Sleigh Beggy" and their actual meaning until now.

Anyway, all in all, a great start. Adapted it perfectly and it felt a lot more emotional in here than the manga, probably because of the ost and it being animated and all, obviously. Nice to see silky<3 as well. Looking forward to the introduction for other characters, as well as Chise slowly opening up to everyone.

Been waiting months, glad it's here.
So far it's carrying a 'safe' vibe; something not necessarily negative to say it's meta, but rather a sense of safety you have when watching it. Been awhile since I felt this way about an anime, over a year at least.
Hoping it stays this way.

to be honest, I can already see this anime being totally over-hyped, but I really enjoyed the first none the less. It gets a solid 8/10 (therefore a 4/5 vote) from me since I don't immediately want to give it the top rating and have my hopes dashed by the end or something. The animation was interesting to say the least and I can't stress how much a love the design around the mage's home. This series seems promising so far, I just hope it'll at the very least keep the 8/10 it's going in with for me.

Looks like we got that Lost Children adaptation after all.

Raising her as a pet, to be his bride? The OVAs were enjoyable, but it also didn't have much of this weird dynamic going on. From the preview though, I expect the show to mostly be worldbuilding with Chise.
Sieg Zeon!
