THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------


Oh, so the duel actually takes place with various powers being used such as invisibility, disabling other people's arcana powers, and physical abilities.

Well, overall, the episode was alright I suppose but some of the battles between Felicità and the members of the families were ugh.. Ultimately, this series seemed to be a false advertisement and presented this in the wrong way imo. It was good to hear the OP song again once more though.

Overall, a 5/10 for the entire series for weak ending and wasteland of fillers. Might check out the OVA. Maybe.

No OP.

Main guys except Yusa-san's character who didn't join because of being the adviser, and the girl won easily through preliminary. lol @ the guys when fighting against the girl and lost her. The mother even joined the duel!!

Fukuyama-san's character and Yonaga-san's character fought against their opponents with their thankfulness and the girl and won, so they had to fight before the fight against each other in a long duel. At the same time the girl had to choose who she likes for the destiny card. They thought about the same final move and even lost conscious. Wait, does the banner change each fight?

The girl had to fight against the father and won. Father also taught her to get strong to love everyone, not just choose one. During the ceremony and the girl's b-day party, Father is staying as a leader and still not wanting his daughter to give to any guy.

OP as ED.

should have been more action orientated, if it was it could have been cool, but it was a romantic kind of anime :/ as for the fights they were like 30 secs long lol. might aswell not have based it on fighting.

Despite having more Liberta and Nova in every episodes, the studio still use the Normal Ending of the game for the ending of the anime version, though they also give a glimpse of the "Best" Ending. It makes sense though, they animating events in the Normal route until episode 9..

Wow...this was...nothing like it should of been. Not just this episode, the series as a whole.

The duel was very very meh as there was no real "tactical" use of their powers.

Not much else to say. How this is a 6.95 baffles me.

I agree that the series should have been more action-oriented with the plot like that... even as a romance, it was pretty meh.. she didn't even choose anyone at the end. I give the whole series a 6/10, and that's being nice. It was entertaining enough to watch once a week... don't think I'd ever rewatch it, though.

Awful ending for an awful show. Even though I did predict it, I'm still disappointed.

3/10.

I called that shit out. Can't believe they really ended it like that. A bad ending to an extremely plain show. I'll admit there were funny moments but a very small amount. Like one or two in each episode.

5/10

It's disappointing , I mean ... seriously , the ending seemed rushed as hell , why couldn't they extend Arcana Duello for two episodes ? The note drops from 7/10 to 6/10 . I'm also not going to watch the OVA .

So Sumire intended to marry her daughter?

Well, I had a feeling Felicita wouldn't be able to decide for one, the duells weren't good either ... Didn't like this ending.

4/10

WHAT THE FLYING FUCK?! THIS SERIES HAD SOOOOOO MUCH POTENTIAL. Ridiculously stupid, the main thing of the series is at the end, the ending is EXTREMELY rushed. The motivation for the whole fight was basically given the finger at the end. SOOO BAD.

I assumed that kind of ending, because I was reading something about the game... In spite of all... I'm PLENTY dissapointed.

Well, they are animating the Normal route in the game to begin with, not Liberta route. Also, if they animating an ending of Felicita ending with someone probably the fans of other male characters will be still be disappointed.

The tournament in the anime is actually much better than the game. in the game only Felicita against Mondo battle that is shown in the Normal route.

I guess I had too high expectations for this anime.
Anime based on otome game... -.-
7 main guys from game,
and only 2 of them are main characters in anime.
Putting Liberta and Nova for scenes where they shoundn't be,
pointless fillers.
Debito, Luca and Pace not much screentime and romantic moments with Fel.
Disappointment!
Last episode, Fel wins with Debito, Pace and Luca
and staff don't even show how she beat them...

Good thing - open ending.
This is better than other game harems
where the winner is set from the beginning -.-

7/10
Anime is really disappointing,
but I like this series.

Hope OVA will be better.

Yes, you are absolutely right, but I was comparing different routes throughout the series, and I saw that they took some part from Liberta's route, some from Nova's, and some from normal route.
So I didn't know, what route will they definitely choose.

But I agree with you - when they would choose, for example, Liberta's route, Nova's fans will be dissapointed.

5/10 - because of Debito.

Ah the Duello had so many good parts and exceeded my expectations greatly. They really did the action well and flashy too and I even got the match up I wanted. Only disappointing aspect to me was the winner of the Duello Guess I should have expected it, but I did like how it went down and even thankful that neither Liberta nor Nova defeated each other as I would have been sad either way, both are so cool. The heart made it seem like she needed to pick one, but I liked how it was like it is the power of one who loves all..



-----
For a Shoujo Romance with some Action moments, I loved it and think it was really well done. So many awesome characters like the best Liberta (the young sailor king of the sea) and Nova, then Jolly, Debito, Pace, Luca, Dante, even Sumire surprised she participated, and Mondo. Character backstories were well done even emotional at times, and the Arcana focus felt fresh and unique. Im satisfied and hope theres more someday. 9 / 10.

Pieces of Treasure one of the best ending themes this year.

Otome game adaptions = harem ending.

Gee, and the tournament didn't even start until the last episode, and it was crappy. :(

How the hell did Fel win? XD

What a boring ending. The only reason for me to give the ending a 5/10 was because we finally saw a Nova vs. Liberta battle, i laughed a little at the "battles" between Felicita and Pace/Debito/Luca and the Arcana Duello finally happened (like 11 episodes AFTER it was mentioned -,-). I was so looking forward to Liberta go win everything and Felicita falling in love with him, but that hope was completely crushed.

I am so disappointed with the ending, i wanted her to at least chose one of them and guess what happens; she choses neither -.-

This honestly had so much potential at the start and the ending completely ruined it for me i think i would give it a 6 or 5.

This episode was quiet disappointing, actually the show itself was a really disappointing. I think my love for Luca, Pace, and Debito kept me watching all 12 episodes without dropping it. After the 4th episode I figured there wasn't going to be action but ugh the focus on only Nova and Liberta killed it for me. Oh wells I give it a 6/10.

The ending was horrible, 96% of most of the content in the entire plot was pointless, the characters were bland as hell, the main girl was worse yet I still sat through and watched the thing since it had big potential in the first episode yet it was just a little entertaining i guess. 3/10 for the entire series for making me waste my time

Liberta and Nova for an end again. Though their battle resulted in a draw.
It was kind of predictable that Felicitá will win in the end and she would save her father.
But the true end was with Dante and his jokes which no one understands :D

I want a second season now^^

Status quo maintaned. Mondo lives, Felicita is still single, hurray.
I give 3/10 - for the fact that I didn't drop this, for the idea of Arcana powers (even if the potential was wasted) and for Debito.
