6.35 - Isn't it a bit tooooo low? Even MAnaria friends has 6.56
It's not brilliant, but has interesting setting and some good action. I expected it to have 7.

Horrible, HORRIBLE action. I can start counting each episodes how many boring, panning still shots there are.

Edginess is utterly ridiculous. There's an amputation in every episode.

The yuri is getting silly. How can Asuka be so dense that she can't even figure out Kurumi wants to bang her. And Tamara being in love with her too just came out of nowhere.

Mascot character is so stupid. I shake my head every time he interrupts the actions (which already has enough interruptions!) to explain some dumb detail. Is this supposed to be funny? Because it isn't.

The whole series just feels like an excuse for the author to indulge his military otaku fetishism and throw in some cute girls as an afterthought. Like Gate but way worse.

It's a great anime if you like you some gore, yuri and nice edgy stuff. People giving it low scores are the same insufferable bores that bashed Goblin Slayer.

Don't listen to the haters. The action looks great, the magical girls are cute, the amputations every episode are refreshing, because many other shows shy away from proper gore.

This show is not ashamed of its topics and you shouldn't be either.

Well now i see what you mean. I wrote this post when i was on 4th or 5th episode, and now that there's really one amputation after another it loses any sense. Though the first one with hostage was so surprising that i thought - wow, finally there's the evil who's actually evil and is not just talk.
Mascot character doesn't bother me and i don't pay any attention to yuri, but Asuka's indecisivness looks way out of place and i wish they made a proper protagonist with both physical and mental strength.
And I still like the special ops idea, it's cool.

I wouldn't call it great and it's nowhere even close to Goblin Slayer. But I wish it was cause it had great potential at first, but somehow there's less and less action in each new episode.(

I read the manga and asuka is in my favorites since the first time that i read the manga.

My score will be 6.
why
* They put fanservice in anime something that does not exist in manga.
* This first arc is not above or below the average prologue arc. (they did not improved the first arc and is a bit longer with the scenes of fanservice compared with manga)
* The fight scenes was not improved in anime.

The show is very disappointing. At first, I had hopes. Now, nope. They introduced a bunch of characters that I don't care and the first arc was solved by a deus ex machina. Also, there's a lot of unnecessary fanservice when the animation is still shit.

Strangely, Manaria Friends is worse than this.

It has some good commentary on post-war situations, realistic depictions of PTSD, etc. The potential is all that, but it’s bogged down by bad animation, unnecessary fanservice, and terrible pacing. A real shame, because this could have been great in the right hands.

Because this anime has a lot of weird sh*t.

Too many fetish scenes, for instance when nozo-chan was kidnapped she swallowed a lot of liquid, there was gagging, and stomach deformation.

Kurumi's torture scenes.

Some disas looks like muscular stuff toys.

Some people cant stand those.

I support this anime and want another season. Hope people doesn't get turn off too much.

I have to admit that episode 1 was either you already dislike the show or either it caught your curiosity.

If you fall for solution 1, you won't appreciate the whole season since the animation doesn't improve & a lot of scenes aren't positively memorable (torture scenes, blood massacre of civilians, etc).

If you fall for solution 2, you might find an interesting mature & modern magical girl show, contrasting weird creatures (c'mon, Disas had such a ridiculous design that didn't fit human's cruelty and global violence) fighting grown-up teenagers who don't hesitate to kill with either flamethrower, knife, assault rifle or anything magic.

As I learned from some friends who started the show, they really disliked the enemies' design, the general animation and the high degree of violence (for a magical girl show as they said).

It deserve much higher score

ALso, the fan service and torture makes the anime even more entertaining. I love kurumi torture scene a lot, and I want to see more

I think it is a cool concept (magical girls dealing with trauma from a brutal war) but had mediocre execution.

The tone was all over the place (the beach episode which jumped back and forth between torture, fanservice, tragedy and then ecchi being the worst example).

I found most of the cast flat and/or annoying, though Asuka was a strong (but not) great lead.

Art style isn’t appealing and the animation is too often poor.

The edginess is a little forced even if it is occasionally done well.

It’s hard to say what this anime does well but it isn’t hard to explain the many things it does bad or or is only average at.

All that said I still enjoyed the anime but I can not say it was very well done.

There are some chases when some animes had low or average score in this site and later the score was increased or lowered. This in particular is the chase where could stay in the middle of average or going down to the low.

This is the disappointment for having an interesting concepts and moments here and there in the show mixed with a lot of problems, maybe more then the positive aspects of the show, wich is possible to see and make this as an above average or just average to just a bad anime, somehow i really can understand.

Shitty Character design, lack of animations in some of the action scenes with bad use of static images, turning this scenes really awfull to watch, the whole unnecessary use of the bad design just for the fanservice scenes, etc.

It deserves it. I bought the manga and had high hopes it would be good, enjoyed it, and liked the first few episodes of the anime but it slowly got worse over time, and looking back on the manga it sucked, Banshee-IV here explained it better than I could why this is a besmirching on the magical girl anime genre. Not to mention, episode 12's not only added in a torture scene which is giving me implications that to quote IHE, somewhere buried deep within the bowels of this thing, is a truly dark and depressing story about a psycho having an inner war with himself who's created a construct out of the predator part of his being named War Nurse Kurumi Mugen, and a certain element that existed in the manga that was added in makes me feel a certain squad with guns will break down my door and how it somehow was legally licensed here... I never thought I'd find a magical girl anime that's WORSE than Sailor Moon Crystal seasons 1-2, and I fucking DETEST those.

I'm sticking with Raising Project instead, hoping the Restart arc or the Magical Daisy anime in that series will get an anime adaptation, same thing with Unmagical Girl.

I've seen every review of this show available in english, and if there's one 100% guarantee, it's that the more intelligent and capable the critic, the more they like the show. You may extrapolate the rest from there.
