THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Very nice OP song, I dig the style of it.

I thought the episode was fairly interesting. It has a mixture of magic and supernatural content. Production quality is good and I even like the soundtrack.

That Veronica girl is a badass when she came out of nowhere for her attack. Also saw some parts of her past which definitely gave a sense of tragedy. There's a decent amount of action already in this episode so I expect this to be a mix of supernatural/fantasy-action thriller. Really cool episode imo.

Uff, best opening of the season right here. At least as of now.
The rest looks good too. Nice production and already some action with an imo pretty cool soundtrack. Nothing too special, but it works. Initially I was kinda wary in regards to the story and I still am. In spite of my worries, I still tend slightly towards optimism due to the positive first impression.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

The story feels pretty poorly plotted out. Exposition lead to a flashback of the two female leads, which immediately leads to the present time of them meeting up and confronting each other, which immediately proceeds to the female lead joining the opposing group. It felt like developments that should've happened episodes later happened in the first episode.

But that OP is really good. And the production values are impressive. And I agree with one of the comments above, it does feel like their summoning Personas XD

It was surprisingly good, hope it doesn't implode halfway through the season.

Already noticed some of that classic P.A. Works animation in the first episode. Doesn't bode well, but we'll see I guess. Also already rolling my eyes at the "main character wants to save their edgy childhood friend from themself" premise. I guess we'll see how this turns out.

Well, where to even start ...

I love when anime spit all the unimportant informations about the world history we are supposed to care, with millions of names, locations and shit like that. The backstory was also very poorly done, like what ? Am i supposed to care about characters i saw like 2 min ? wtf, next show that has "fairy" in its title and you use the most ugliest CGI possible for them ? The whole fight sequence was also a suffering. The main girl look like a pain in the ass, also her childhood friend is the "i hate everyone" type like give me a break. One second there is a flash back no one care, next there is a fight, and in blink of an eye the main girl is using her pokemon and joining some secret organization.

Like yeah, it all sound and (sometimes) looks good, and production value is high, but the whole thing seems cheap. But hey, the fanatical shippers of female characters with other female characters are surely already deciding this as their AOTY already.



Disappointed.

it's triggering me that sites like MAL and anidb have it listed as "Fairy Gone" when the "gone" is intentionally left lowercase. They need to respect title stylizations. Even the eyecatch showed "Fairy gone".

(K)NoW_NAME is always fantastic. P.A. Works is basically always awesome for me except for Glasslip. This was a pretty good start. OST is strong.

Genuinely curious as to how you came to this conclusion. Because I saw absolutely nothing hinting at either one.

Literally this. I cannot agree more regarding the stylization and P.A. Works except of Glasslip thing.

Good to hear (K)NoW_NAME again. When the OST started, it felt that I kind of missed the OST of Grimgar. A good start!

The character art looks really good though.

So.... Two childhood friends who were separated at a young age when tragedy hit their village only to meet again years later under opposing factions.

Isn't this the exact premise of Sirius.....?

I agree. I despise Mariya greatly, her actions, personality and awful dialogue puts me off. Shame she had to be a main character.

Very disappointing. All the characters are boring and get on my nerves, full of tropes including the "we know each other kind of but let's introduce us to each other so the audience knows who we are", then a fight in the first episode where we couldn't care less about the outcome.

And on top of that, shitty looking CG "fairies" and that whole off-brand persona/digimon feel.

I think this is all I need to see from this show.

About what i expected really.

A bit on the generic side with the action and the plot, the music will probably have to some carrying cause i enjoyed that aspect a whole lot (considering the group who does the music in this series, it's no surprise for me).

Characters just got introduced so they'll probably get into their antics soon and they must have time to do so since it's 2-cour.

This is like a mediocre Youjo Senki x JoJo but with CGI stands
I found nothing that stands out from other anime in this first episode but I will go with the 3 episodes rule for this one.

This was exactly what come to my mind watching the anime, but Sirius had a lot more promising first episode . The animation looked good in this too, but the CGI fairy fights were just meh, just like the story so far. I will give it an other chance before dropping it, but I don't have high hopes for the next episode changing my opinion.

This is just Sirius all over again with elements from Persona lmao.

At least Free seems to be far more interesting than the generic girl and her generic friend.

All I saw when I saw the fairies was PERUUUSONAAA! XD

Anyway, jokes aside, fairly decent start I guess.

Like many people above pointed out, it felt like they skipped around too much from one plot point to another and from one time frame to another so it didn't really feel very compelling.

It however does look nicely made and the battles seem cool, I'm assuming or rather hoping the story and direction gets better since this was just the first episode so I'll stick around for more.

I expected something more thrilling but this is only the first episode of a 2 cour series, so hopefully I'll be more excited about this somewhere down the line

Still, I think the concept of this is pretty awesome, and the characters aren't half bad either. That and the art, animation, music and fight scenes are pretty good too, so if they keep these factors up to par, that's another plus in my books

Feels a lot like the studio's earlier work, Canaan.
The same tropes, like blonde badass girl who was friends with the soft girl, the chase scene, mafia namedrop...
Also the lazy way of world building by couple of name dropping. Sounds of people and gunfire can be heard, even though the source of the sounds can't be seen.
The faces on the characters looked awkward at places.
The CG is not atrocious, but still the anime looks mediocre. The MC gets the superpower so damn easily.

Decent CGI for the most part, but not for the fairies. Also, the fact that the mc interfered with the chase got a lot of people killed but that didn't seem to matter at all? That's confusing. It was an entertaining episode though, and it looks good.

It was actually pretty decent first episode. MC is a little naive but not enough to get annoying. Besides she's pretty proactive which is always a plus.

I think this is gonna be the main show to follow this season for me

Surprisingly bad. I'll still watch another episode to make sure I'm not dropping a good show although I'm very sure that this isn't the case. All that CGI and so-called action. Everything looks good and I like the art style as long as there's no fighting involved. The action itself is always skipped when something is about to happen and we only see the outcome of each strike etc... This isn't the right way to make an action show. I hope next episode proves me wrong or I'm out. And sorry for my small rant.

A pretty good episode. Good effects in the beginning to show the past. The only graphical problem I saw was a few frames with the auctioneers that were not animated. But seems like a good start.

My goodness. I really need to know who composed the soundtrack for this. And the opening is a real banger. Rivals Kimetsu no Yaiba's.
Unfortunately the CG looked pretty bad and the characters aren't really interesting so far.
But I'm curious to see what PA. Works has planned out for this series.

Did this not kind of Suck?,



PA works is responsible for one of my all time favorite anime, and I was super stoked watching the trailer for fairy gone. I am most definitely somewhere between being a little and a lot disappointed. The animation of this first episode flip flopped between something kind of modern and 1998 and the sound track didn't match the animation vibes at all. Ah you are feeling a certain way, lets thrash that up. The OP was pretty good, I am talking about the mood setting music, it was just bleh.

The plot points were all thrown in my face in such a short amount of time. HEY ITS A WAR, WARS OVER, HEY WERE KIDS, AH LOOK FARIES, A FIGHT, DAMN ITS MY FRIEND, IM A COP, YOU GOTTA WORK FOR ME hue hue hue hue. Was it this most awful thing I've seen, no. I do regret picking this for my fantasy league though. Who knows , maybe people will become obsessed with it. If the rest of the season is more of this, its gonna be a no from me.

Pretty solid. The cg fairy's looked pretty good. It was just a few times when the cg'd the characters that it looked kinda sketchy. Mariya meeting her childhood friend basically right away and them being on different sides is kinda eh. With 24 eps they could have spaced it out a bit, but it's a pretty minor complaint. I like the world and setting so I'm gonna stick around.

One other complaint is that Veronica killed a shit load of guards with her Fairy, yet her childhood friend just kinda ignored all that. Uhh you really wanna just talk to her after seeing all those ppl get murdered?

That mariya girl is annoying af. I had to sit through a total of 20 minutes of annoyance just to see where it leads and as I expected, it is no different from other shounens. If the protagonist is no different from the ones who are always like "don't kill the bad guys let them kill us so they will change into nice guys after watching our cringey drama" then this isn't for me. You can never give me a better "Nice guy" protagonist than Mob or Gon. It's funny to see that Mariya has poeple favouriting her. Keeping that aside, the story itself is fucked up. I didn't understand why that cop shot the fairy when its so valuable? Was he like "I am going to die anyway, lets do the opposite of what we were said to do before I die"? I hate Mariya because she is boring. It seems like I have already seen the same kind of interaction that Mariya and Veronica had several times before. More than that I have seen a character like Mariya more times than I have seen anime lol. The background music is too loud and doesnt match with the scenes imo. Animation is well done except for the fairies which have been getting covered under some kind of shadow or some black colour. Its clear that they did this to stop us from complaining about the bad cg. Its easily visible at some points. I will still watch it to see how much of a cliche it turns out to be. I would never mind cliches in comedies but its gets annoying when it comes to action and drama or just anime that have serious tones. Sorry for ranting but Im pretty upset.
