Generic plot, generic characters, bad pacing, generic systematic introduction, not daring.
This could make for a somewhat enjoyable game, but as an anime? I'm not playing so why would I care about generic fantasy setting n°422? I can't even begin to get invested in a character that litterally tells his past, motives and goals the very moment he appears, which btw was such a bland way to introduce his character that I can't remember well what his character is doing, something something demons something sistina and I just finished watching it, I seriously couldn't care less... I'm not saying this is bad, but it shows no potential whatsoever as a decent anime series. Only good point is that main character, Theo I think it was, actually made his crest and equipment by himself.

Also animations are having hiccups or something, I saw an elephant walking very weirdly at the completely pointless introductive part, as well as fights looking like they're in slowmo as if that makes it easier to understand what's going on, which only makes the fact that the animators appearently have no idea how swordsmanship works even more noticeable.

As FukGoBack already said, Siluca is appearently set to only exist with main character, as everything she is, does, likes, dislikes, and her individuality as a whole were given completely up the moment she said "I want to see what he can do", and even after Theo pulled off a barely decent fight she decided "yep, that's it, I don't need my own character".

And one more thing, what the heck is wrong with that Lord that was kicked out? Are we supposed to assume he's a lord just because he's got a mantle? Because he totally looked like any other peasant. Oh, right, generic is the keyword here.

Dont watch it then , stop whinning

If you don't like my comment don't read it then.
You see what's wrong with your statement now? This is a discussion thread, it's meant to discuss, not to praise something just for the sake of it and call everyone that doesn't like it "whining". Thanks, bye.

This seems like a pretty average show so far but it has potential to be good, just gotta wait and see.

I don't have any idea about this anime I tried to watched the ep1 and all I can say about it are bland, boring, generic and IMO uninteresting girl and boy lead characters. Maybe this kind of show is not suited for me.

Hmm.. I like the character design but that's about it. Reminds me slightly with Chain Chronicle which is more watchable but I might be wrong since it's only the first episode..

Damn. Why do I even hoped just this little bit that, at least, I'll run into a decent first episode? That was so bad.

The episode was almost alright, but one think, rly one think was missing.

The epicness was not even near to what its suppose to be.

That was... Ok I guess. It's just, it went so fast that I blinked and and they were already partners and taking over some rando's castle.

We needed more build up and a more genuine/natural interaction between the two characters. Why did he all of a sudden show up out of nowhere? Why would Siluca make an agreement with some guy out of the blue? She seems a lot smarter than that.

All I ask is for more well thought out and believable characters and story.

Well, at least Siluca is a babe.

For A-1 pictures the quality of animation is bad. The episode runs so fast,I think it would be better if that had one introducion before the wedding. The battle are not complex, nor they have emotion. In the final, the king wase up of your power so easily.I'm disappointed with that start. I hope that during the course of the anime they improve it.

... seriously guys? I thought this was pretty good for a 1st episode. Sorta like Madan no Ou. Characters are pretty fun and game-ish. I like it so far tbh.

Is there romance? Feels like it will happen but it doesn’t have the romance tag.

Also wished that the female MC had bigger chest. Doesn’t have to be huge but god damn, she more flat than my floor despite being pretty...

There is romance, sooner than you expect.

EDIT: after reading through the discussion, I'm pretty fucking surprised at how many people don't understand the story. Do you people really love to be spoonfed? Jeez, how old are you. Just think for a bit. Do people only watch the animation without reading the subs?

Nice. I'm sticking around then. Let's hope it happens in the anime.

Hell,this was pretty bland.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

After watching the first episode, i am a little disappointed, not for the story/plot, that is near to the manga, it was for the animation style/quality, poor that i expect!!!
Shine and Dark, and a miraculous power to be great....??
The animation and direction was great, much better than most A-1 Fantasy anime. There wasn't any crazy sakuga moments but it definitely looked good.

Yeah but it fells too generic, at least from the anime point of view, I haven’t read the manga, I wonder where can I read it, and if it’s sold trough any source preferable if it’s a shounen jump source app or iBooks even Kindle is fine too

This guy is the luckiest guy ever xD Like he entered a fight that he didn't need to participate, don't even know how managed to defend the girl and to thank him she spawned a huge monster that would boost his abilities if he killed him, he kills him almost not knowing how xD Later the best girl makes a contract with him and promises to follow him (best one), a few minutes after he already has a castle with people and an old mage by his side with some great knowledge xD This is like playing a game on very easy hahaha Lucky he :D
But to be honest, it was a pretty nice start, will definitely continue to watch this.

Seems to have moved a little too fast. In one episode we went from: peace breaking down, first battle for MC, formation of a pact, and then taking over of a fief? Adaptations inevitably cut out content but the pacing is a little high for a 2-cour series. Hopefully this is meant to create more time for later, more important scenes.

The first episode was bad. When Theo defeats so conveniently the monster, i know it that something is wrong here. Too much information in just the first five minutes. The ending was weird. 2/5
Life has no meaning.

Yeah.... this was fast as fuck. I have no idea what happened and it felt pretty bland. This was a real turn-off for me.

Absolutely every aspect of this bored me. The animation and art are both lackluster. The story did nothing to grip me. I guess A-1 put everyone with a shred of artistic vision on Franxx this season.

Amazing how some people manage to completely figure out a character after 1 episode :)

Of course it's all BS. Siluca is a fairly multilayered character, as the story will show.

It's the show's job to imply that there is more to the story to get us to keep watching it - don't blame viewers for being dissapointed in what was all around a generic opening act.

Oof, that was a bit of an iffy first impression. The OP gives me hope that it will have potential. I guess it's time to play wait and see.

Cell phone-like technology?

Random ass marriage celebration.

Girl surprised by having to give a speech even though she would have been told well in advance.

Wait why was the celebration happening BEFORE the actual marriage even happened???

VIPs from two nations. Only a student notices shit. Wonderful security.

We got some runners in the crowd aka the smart ones.

Ermahgod parents be dead so lets throw our nations into war again.

Carriage driver seems like he'll be an evil dude based on actions from the cathedral or a good guy cause generic tale demands it.

Mage girl setting up generic pervert we, the audience, must hate!

My god she is a Mary Sue isn't she?

Theo, the generic aspiring hero who happens to be a blank slate in terms of factions with no explanation for why his ass is able to make a crest on his own.

Both Mage & Lord = 100 Opponents... So you knew she'd be able to take on at minimum 50 people and came with... Seven men. Okay buddy.

Generic self righteous hero is generic.

Despite being shown to bleed, they all still got scared and ran from him. K.

Pretty sure the beast coulda bit his head off right there even with the sword stab in the chest...

Mage Girl apparently can make anyone a knight

A knight can have one mage serve them... Wait...

Which came first? The chicken or the egg?

Theo = Weak willed, High ideals.

What happened to needing 50 men for one lord? He is weak and unskilled.

Guess its Lords = Weak willed, High ideals and not just Theo.

Old wise mage man was a plus... The only plus so far. (I feels he gonna die if he goes for negotiations)

Mage Girl aka Mary Sue announces Theo is going to declare himself for the Alliance.

Theo continues to be weak willed with no voice of his own. What a hero.

4/10 so far.

Can someone explain why they have an obviously ominous and evil giant demon summoning obelisk in the middle of their grand cathedral? Or why in a room full of multiple expert sorcerers, only a random student recognizes "chaos" and tries to stop it? This makes no sense.

If you had been paying attention to the scene, you would have seen why there is an "evil giant demon summoning obelisk in the middle of their grand cathedral" or why "only a random student recognizes "chaos" and tries to stop it"


Because they need the plot to progress.

I just watched this episode and what I wanna know is, why does it seem so familiar??

I know for a fact I've never seen it before, and I'm not talking about anything generic in the setting or story. I'm talking about specific details, like the two leaders about to ally with each other before being attacked by a demon, someone being accosted on the road and some wandering individual unnecessarily jumping in to assist them, and the beast being summoned to help make him more powerful, among many other details.

But none of the characters themselves seem remotely familiar, nor them taking over that one lord's castle and lands.

I will backtrack a bit, as I suppose it's possible I may have watched the first episode and then forgotten to continue, but it almost seems as if many of these details may have been picked buffet-style from other anime. But this show is not that old, I'm sure I would have remembered.
