Just caught up to it right now.

Pretty decent episode honestly, surprisingly now there's some kind of motive at least. It's not bad but I think that's better. Quite enjoyed this more than the past episodes though.

I’m just watching to figure out the magic deal, after that, probably drop.

At least it had less cliches than UQ, and the main character has goals and motives, but that voice actor and the crappy dialog just brings it down too much. The only way I can see this getting better is if there is an endless tournament, but I have a feeling they are going to jump into royalty and slice of life next few episodes. Character building crap. Probably a "wow that is a royal pendant, where did you steal it?" moment. And most likely "you’re the low man on the totem pole and you need to do all the chores" moment while getting to know everyone at the guild.

Ummm...not hating it yet, but this is still like a worser version of Fairy Tail crossed with Naruto.

Anyway, everything is still pretty predictable, normal for cliche shounens. The names of the guilds aren't very good, imo. "Fairy Tail", "Lamia Scale", or "Oracion Seis" sound way better...but I get it.

It's impossible to get used to the shouts of Asta. But it was an incredible episode and fun, even made me cry.

This episode was hilarious for all the wrong reasons. The scene with the salty guy who lost summoning a magic lizard to attack Asta while he took a shit was the most unintentionally funny thing I've seen in a while. It was so, so stupid.
And the animation was awful for the most part too, the fight with Yuno and his opponent was literally just the screen shaking for a minute. This show is awful but I'm enjoying it so much, I think I'll keep watching for the 'so bad it's good' factor.

That's funny, my enjoyment watching/reading this is the same I had while watching fairy tail(Before it became advanced cancer). I even like the cliches because they are put in the story in a way that doesn't annoy me too much. My problem is just the pacing... A 2 page flashback was adapted into full 10minutes of anime, and a 1 page fight was adapted into 2minutes of screen shaking.

I actually think this series has a lot of potential. I still find Asta’s screaming annoying, but it wasn’t too bad this episode. The story formula is also king of cheesy (one outgoing kid who has to struggle, and one calm prodidgy), but i hope we get some twists and turns later. Introduction of the squads should be cool tho. I’m hopping for some epic fights in the future as well.

The discrimination in this anime is really strong. The commoners lost in all aspect, status, wealth, even power. I wont be shock if Yuno is actually an illegitimate child of some noble xD

Btw, its much better to see this in anime form than manga form.

I wanna say..isnt mahou-tei translate to Sorcerer Emperor? Wizard King feels weak lolol

And someone mention the squads name arent that nice..well they are more of magical troops under the Sorcerer Emperor that protects the Kingdom. So, they are actually soldiers and generals with individual appeals thus their squad names are more towards hope and goals than lavish and originality. Golden Dawn leads the Kingdom to bright future, Black Bull fights tough and never give up till last moment. Thats the vibe the names give.

The bronze magic that Asta's opponent used was pretty impressive. And Asta's sword split the shield within seconds showing its power. The captain's observations though were pretty interesting. I guess even in this world nobles are still the same stuck up ones then. Yuno's opponent though prideful does back his words up with skill thats for sure. Man that was such a quick defeat though. The exam sure reduced the number of candidates though but thats too be expected. Wow to think that every captain wants Yuno to be part of their squad though. Never expected Yami to be the one that accepted Asta into his squad though. Asta's opponent though sure was petty though. Black bulls base sure looks like a jumble though. Looks like things are just getting started for both Asta and Yuno.

I don't know if it's called as "Wizard King" in English subtitle since i watched it with Non-English subtitle. But, in wikia and manga scanlation, it called as "Magic Emperor". And yeah, I do agree that Wizard King feels weak lol.

I am sending you a check for thirty Double Dollars for your comment.

I am glad I wasn't seeing things when Griffith showed up.

Am I the only one getting Kenpachi vibes from Yami? Anyone else? No?

Good episode. So Asta and Yuno finally join their Squads, but there were a bit obvious not going to lie. I was hoping we get to see more of that silver-hair girl. Maybe next episode? I like how Yuno doesn't let anyone mess with Asta. But Asta you seriously can't talk about taking a dump like that in the public. I see that there's a recap even before the opening appears. I hope that doesn't become a common thing now in these days.

Yeah the outro is super good, but also the way they use music in the show Like the music when the leader of the Black Bulls jumped down and was speaking to Asta was nice and intimidating lol

Okay, predictable outcomes. There were some great moments though. Yuno has definitely grown on me, I like him better than Asta.

Problem was how boring and unlikable the background characters were. No way would all of them be that snobby and obnoxious. The guys who fought Asta and Yuno really suck too, hope they don't return. I think they're playing the predictable "what can you commoners do --> oh shit they actually won" a bit too much.

But yes, obviously Asta is with the Black Bulls. The main guy seems really cool, and I like that goth-looking guy too. Should be fun. I don't know what to expect from Yuno's choice the main one. Hopefully we get plenty of time there and don't just get only Asta's training stuff.

Yuno's enemy is exactly the same type of guy that was fighting Asta xD Glad that they got their asses kicked haha
Yami is a very strong character but after all, he is also nice, glad that he accepted Asta.
Now let's see how this will develop.

You see, Asta getting thrown around screaming like an idiot was oddly funny to me this episode XDDD

This is definitely getting better now, the squad Asta could join is a fun bunch even though they don't seem to be the smartest lol

Yuno kicking Ba-hah's ass was pretty satisfying.
lol the way you say it ba hah , that's really funny good one 10 points

So I just watched the first 5 eps and I'm surprised at how low the score is, for a generic battle shounen. I'd give it a 7.5.
Definitely not the worst I've seen and Asta's voice gets more tolerable. I just hope this doesn't do a HxH and get boring after the trial stage.

Oh my gosh, I knew there was going to be a bond between Asta and that big guy. I knew it right when the exam ended because I remembered the first meeting they had. I had a feeling he'd open his heart to Asta. I love this cliche.

I hope they treat my Asta right in the Black Bulls. I don't want him to be abused or anything, but if it's just hard work, Asta can take it.

Every single thing that's happened so far has been so predictable it's hilarious, and yet... it was still badass and kind of a "fuck yeah" moment. Yami's rough and pretty cool. I like him already.
