I don't understand anymore why people are freaking out over this anime.
I mean yeah, the magic system is really freaking cool, but...that's kinda it.
This anime reminds me of a "safe book": a book where the story just...kinda waits, in a way so that the author doesn't really have to do much.

This might be the best series besides Spice and Wolf that i ever saw. I already want to put it as my favorite and give it a 10, but i really should wait till its finished.


High expectations are a double-edged sword.
If something doesn't meet those expectations, you may end up hating it more than you would if you didn't have those expectations.

True, but i simply like it for what it is, cant really explain. It's nearly impossible to ruin this show for me unless you kill Chise off or something like this lol.
I was actually surprised that this is a manga, i thought a novel would fit this kind of story far better.

Because Japan would rather make stories about old men hooking up with underage girls.

Is there a reason why Elias covered his face while talking to Simon and in the last scene?
Or is it because he's just weird?

I can't believe i watched the first episode of the tv series, and then ova 2-3.
Now i had to watch 'ova 1' then 'tv 2'. Thanks "horrible".

Anyway, great episode.
This will be easily one of my favorites this season.

Yet another brilliant episode, truly a masterpiece in the making like I imagined.
Compared to the last episode, this episode had more comedy into it but I still preferred the last over this by a touch. It's sad to know about Chise's parents and I'm guessing Chise's father will inevitably be involved with the enemy so can't wait to see that. It was pleasing to see Angelica teach Chise the basics of Magic and Sorcery. Her expression towards Chise's demonstration of magic now makes me wonder who Chise really is and the scene in the trailer where the villain says a precious test subject popped into my mind. So can't wait to see more of this in detail in the upcoming episodes. Sad to see the 'honeymoon' isn't going all merry-way too and the cliffhanger there was completely unexpected. At this moment, I have no idea whether the pacing a little too fast or relatively slow but I'm loving the show nonetheless.
5/5 to this episode and a solid 9/10 to the series, just a touch away from a 10/10.

So, they can animate not only their only places in a gorgeous manner, but also Britain (and especially, London in this episode). I honestly wonder which western cartoon ever paid so much attention to portraying a landscape so close to reality.

This Anime is on top of the seasonal list for reasons! It has all the right vibes, and it makes you feel sooo good while watching, even when there's not much going on.

Really looking forward to those dragons...

There is a difference between sorcery and magic...

Why does that sound familiar?

Thinks of Grimmoire of Zero.

All jokes aside, this anime definitely stands out this season. And once again, i can totally agree with the hype. Might i even say that this is going to be better than Attack on Titan. ^_^

Objectively speaking, the animation is top notch. The sound treatments really fit into every single frame, and characters are presented in a nice way. What's not to like? And remember, it's a slice of life anime first and foremost. You're basically watching the life of the main characters unfold together. So, story obviously wouldn't be the #1 priority.

Overall the episode again showed two sides to Elias which puts his whole character in a twisted light. On the one side we see him being beneficial to local residents with medicine he makes and genuine to Chise on the other side he's been called out by other people around him for his creepy and strange actions. It seems he himself is not exactly aware of the consequences some of his actions hold which could result from a lack of common sense just how Angelica said.

I most definitely have not read the manga however, I swear I already saw 1&2, are like the first 4 or 5 episodes going to be chopped up versions of the OVA from last year? Why? Can't people just watch OVAs on their own? I want the continuation... this is a waste of time. They even started way later than other shows, as if they didn't have the material on hand already....

"animation"
You consider characters standing around, talking, with only a few recycled frames of blinking, head turning, mouths flapping up and down, all techniques you'll find in literally any other anime to be, "top notch animation"?
"Slice of life"
No. This is not a slice of life. The slice of life genre is centered around characters and their perfectly daily, normal activities, exactly the way an average person lives their every day life.
None of the characters are really interesting either. MC is basic, El is cool, but that's it.
It doesn't appear as though there's going to be any rising action until mid-way.

I'm sorry but the last episode(barring the last minute) was exactly that: We saw their perfectly daily,normal activities, only in a semi-fantasy world setting with magic elements. An anime doesn't have to feature usual jobs or high school to be considered slice of life. At least, that's the way I see it. Nowhere did it state that Elias & Chise will embark on an adventure. The show is centered around how Chise might have a new hope in life, and whatever reasons Elias has to purchase her.

The usual if I don't like it how can others like it sentiment is quite fascinating. It's like some people don't realize people can have different taste lol. Also if everyone else loves yet you don't just maybe just maybe you are the odd one out there.

Seriously this series is foremost world building and characters first than story. The author tries to build the world before she goes about the story so no it isn't trying to be safe.

Ugh. I need that OP on my phone NOW!

Why is everyone so cruel to Chise? Even her parents were so cruel to her. Her mother I think killed herself because of Chise then her father abandoned his family because of Chise. Idk. :/

Aww Silky is the name of that girl who's like the maid in Elias' house. Hihi. She's such a cutie. :)

"Shall we prepare for our honeymoon?" Fucking Elias. Hahaha. He probably brought up about the honeymoon thrice throughout the episode or I already lost count. Hahaha.

Omfg. Elias' human versio, though. Hot damn! Hot damn! I guess there's a chance for Chise and Elias to kiss and make love. Ohmygoooood. I need to stop.

Elias: "Do I look good? Am I handsome?"
Chise: "You look kind of fake."
Elias: "That's harsh!"

PFFFFFFFFFFFFFT! I guess, Chise prefers Elias' bonehead than his "human-head". Hahahahaha. That doesn't sound right. Lmfao.

Finally, we met the gorgeous lady we saw in the OVA: Angelica. :)

Angelika: "He hasn't done anything weird to you, has he?"
Me: "When he took her clothes off before her bath!"
Chise: "He washed me after taking off my clothes..."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Poor Elias got punched by Angelica.

Wha't a Sleigh Beggy again? And why is Chise so special? I don't want to use Google, maaan. Actually, that magic Chise made was so gorgeous. :D

Elias made his funny boned face again. Waaaaaaaah. So cute. Hahaha.

And we met a priest this time and his name is Simon. He's a cutie, but my Elias is cuter. Huehuehue. Them two throwing shots at each other. Haha.

Awww. Silky hugging Chise. So cute. <3

This episode made me realize that Elias is not a serious guy and he has a lot of funny side since he's surrounded with people who love making fun of him from calling him a shithead to a sick bastard. Hahaha.

Oh no. DRAGONS? I'm a sucker for dragons. Kyaaaa! And now Chise's taken by HICCUP while Elias is checking on the dragons. Pfffffffft. Hahaha. I wonder who's that guy. Daaamn.

Such a great episode. <3

Sure, if you mean less than 50% equals to everything. I am a very open minded person, so no matter the genre, I always give at least one chance to all series if I dont like what I have seen after 1-4 episodes I stop watching, no reason to waste time with something that you dont enjoy, for the about 1% chance that it will turn out to be good in the end also writing how bad is after every new episode...Thats masochist, and utter waste of time,just for the sake of being completionist.
This method is lot better than listening to some critics, you have to experience yourself to decide whatever you like it or not.

I don't think I'll ever get over how pretty this anime looks. It's just so friggin' good.

I don't know if I have said this before but the OP has that Spanish gypsy-esque vibe and I love it.

Got some pretty good humour in the episode. It was dope. After that ending with Chise being snatched up by a dragon, I expect some form of action in the next episode.

btw, that cliff hanger is exactly how things are suppose to develop. If you were surprised by that, you probably haven't read the manga. not sure how the LN handles that.

there could have easily been a decision to not end the episode like that and instead lead the start of the next into that.

Alias knows how to jump the gun. He's already planning a honeymoon with Chise, even know they barely know each other still! XD

His human face transformation looked nice, as they both visited Angelica in London. She's really amusing and also a bit scary as well, with her gut-punching Elias. Her daughter's cute though. =)

The scene in Iceland looked really pretty, but it also escalated quickly, with the dragons kidnapping Chise at the end. I'm sure she'll be fine, but Elias will probably be pretty pissed off about Chise being kidnapped in front of him.

Looking forward to the next episode. =)

Good episode, the sol and the well done comedy moments were enjoyable.

Angelica seems pretty cool and I liked her short explanation between the differences of sorcery and magic. Definitely want to know more about that.

The last scene really surprised me,tho, wasn't expecting that it would end with such a cliffhanger,next Week can't come soon enough.

It was OK. It didn't get so much of my attention, I watched it doing other stuff.
The hype for the series is huge. Personally I feel like jokes in this episode didn't fit well, but that's only my opinion. I agree with the statement that for now it is more about building the world, its magic and developing characters and their relations. Therefore story is in not expanded yet.

So far we know that Elias bought Chise to teach her magic and she seems to have a huge talent as she is "Sleigh Beggy" (what does it mean?). Also he wants to make her his bride. I don't like that part but that's Japan. How did he know about her to begin with?

Last scenes seem to start some action finally.
I'd say it look solid so far, I expect some interesting plot. For me, 3/5 episode.

P.S. Where does that claim "England is a home of magic" comes from? It is not the first time when I see it. What's wrong with Japanese view on England?

JUNNA!

Chise uses magic for the first time. I'm rather surprised that she was able to manifest it so quickly. Are Sleigh Beggies natural magic users or something?

Looking for Dragons on their Honeymoon...and then they find a Dragon that kidnaps Chise. Nice going Elias Ainz Ooal Gown. Gotta keep your waifu closer!

Despite the sudden ending, the preview for the next episode seems rather calm, so I wouldn't worry too much...

Yeah, the preview already spoliered so there was no need for the dramatic cliffhanger. Btw, the dragon guy is a cool character but I love most characters in this series, even the villains are quite interesting. Can't wait to see those animated.
