Looks pretty typical even for a shounen. Almost like Fairy Tail honestly. Which imo is not a good sign. Will probably give it an honest shot though.

I know like the first two minutes were just introducing the CVs and such and that's fine but well... aside from that, well the actual looks is actually really nice. Granted it DOES feel like your typical shounen, but at the same time I am welcome with them just as long as they don't bore me.

Though one thing's for sure this doesn't look like something that was made out by Lerche at face value, it looks like it was made by some other place. But it sure does look nice that's for sure.

Good cast :) By the way, given the standard roles of Aoi, I want to immediately ask: Merie a lesbian or a mentally unstable girl?
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

Its airing on NHK so giving that its prob not going to be the typical shounen u think it would be. Also being a french manga it already gives us the info we need to know whether it will be generic or not. This is something new and exciting but lets see.

I mean I can only hope it will be good. So if it is that is a great thing. If it ends up being a success considering it is a French manga adaptation that would be a good thing too.

@Wasshio

What do you mean not looking like Lerch? Just an honest question and would be interested to see you expand on that thought.

Well, what I mean when it doesn't look like something Lerche makes I mean the ARTSTYLE of it. If you look at the designs of Lerche's previous works, majority of them have this sort of "Moe-ish" style, or something that are remotely similar where you can identify that it is something coming from Lerche.

With Radiant it doesn't look like it considering the way the designs are structured. It looks like something I either expect from A-1 Pictures (considering they have done Fairy Tail and some other shounen shows) or maybe Madhouse. It's more on face value before you look which are behind it.

Ah fair enough I a suppose. Thanks for letting me know your thought process. Not sure I can 100% agree with you there, but either way thanks.
