Jolly doesn't even do it. I knew it he has a thing for Mondo!

Umm I was ready to hard core fan girl it up and "squeal" and get all excited when my Debito, Pace, thought Jolly was gonna go, and Luca fought HAAHAHAHAH yea right. I was thinking the whole duello would be like a run around they said go and everyone just went at it for more action but it was two by two or there were two stadiums I think.

NOTHING of what I thought, besides we get Liberta and Nova def have a thiing for her. I wish it focused more on romance. And all in all being a reverse harem addict, I had such high hopes I still hope for a second season but I get it probably not. SOO.. 6/10 and a little "depression" I actually waited every sunday for it.

Want to keep talking about this please message or comment ^_^ this is all my opinion of course

A total waste of my time.
The battle was quite a disappointment (which I was looking forward the most).
I hate how that she needs somebody to love, but it got voided in the end.

4/10 for me.

I was being nice to this show and we get to this and nothing happens...

Fel doesn't deserve to be called Bambina in that sexy Debito voice.
He's the only reason I kept watching this tbh and like hell he would lose in the duello.
Then Dante losing LOOOL.

Also why would she compete in her own duello?
It made no sense to me.

Several stellar seiyuu wasted on this.

What was the point of the mother fighting, first of all?

Horrible series. It's a shame since I was looking forward to this one with the italian themes, and all. I predicted how it was going to end after the first episode... this last one was as corny and generic as it gets. The fight scenes were nothing special at all, either. With something that should have been such a big deal that the anime was supposed to be leading up to (oh wait, every episode was a filler, shucks...), the duel was truly horrible.

Major disappointment.

Meh... last episode was so boring and obvious to know what will happen.
Earlier episodes were damn much better than this last episode.

But anyway, seen much boring anime than Arcana Famiglia and give them even good scores :P

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.

W-What....What the hell? ;_; This is such a waste of time. The entire series actually. Oh god.

Even this week's episode of SAO was better than this. =.= And I for one do not like SAO in the first place...

What kind of fights were those? See who can knock the other person's sword into the air? What the shit? Even Bleach had better fights. Why did Fel get a powerup and beat every single character when she was weak as hell in the last episode? Whattttt.

Disappoint. This anime has great animation, amazing seiyuus and music but overall, it just sucked at everything else.

5/10 is my final score. I feel like 5 is pretty generous...

I still want to play the otome game though. ;D

Why is it that seemingly in every anime based off an otome game the girl NEVER chooses a guy at the end and yet there are anime that are based off of games aimed at guys like Clannad and Shuffle where the guy chooses a girl.

The anime industry seems so biased...

Anyways, the ending wasn't that great but I wasn't really expecting it to be. I knew she wouldn't choose someone and I knew the fights wouldn't be that great but it wasn't bad either. A second season would be nice though.

This series was bad. How can they just jump all the way to the battles? There was a beginning and an end, but absolutely no middle.

Well........that sucked. If they would've just advertised this as a slice-of-life anime and not an action one, maybe I wouldn't be so disappointed. False advertising can be a real bitch. I was thinking about giving this series a 6/10, but the way they trolled Debito, Pace, and Luca really pissed me off and now I kinda want to give it a 5/10! Ugh, so much potential just utterly wasted.

To think that this episode would be a redeeming episode for the entire anime, well, let's just say, it is such a disappointment. What kind of a fight tournament is this? Cut-out fights and the fights themselves look like simple dull brawl fights.

J.C. Staff made this anime too shounen-y. I guess should I have done a background check that it is an adaptation from an otome game. What irks me is that someone should have fired the person/people who wrote/directed the poor adapation of this anime because it is written poorly and with such a lacklustre quality.

Overall, I give this anime a 5/10 and I'm just being generous here.

Action my gotdamn ass. Clinging some swords together and going super saiyan to break some pole into little pieces does not count as action in my book.

I actually liked how it ended. She didn't have to choose between the two guys and Papa got to live longer. Plus, her wish was awesome^^ Though, the duello was brief.. ;\ Nonetheless, I rate anime series by enjoyment and it fitting my aspects so this would be one of my faves^^ <3

My feelings for the overall anime : Annoyed
I love the plot, and how the based powers on Tarot cards and having weapons and everything like that, but what annoys me is just ... oiwhjroweitjiwe I can't the right words.
Everything just seemed so rushed, and I wish they had shown more detail in the fights, or had them use their powers more. And the ending was just... predictable. I hate to say this, but I'm kind of disappointed.

Well that was crappy. It would have been better if this series was at least 21 episodes long and didn't have those random adventures in the earlier episodes.

I did like the song that was playing at the start of Liberta vs Dante and the joke about Mondo(Papa) growing the least.

why can't a shoujo romance be an action at the same time? LOL honestly, if they wanted to add some fighting, at least do it right.

WTF is with this series

If it's intended for boys, it lacks that battle 'umph'. There were abilities, but underused. If it's for girls, it lacks the harem romance factor. There were no romantic scenes; no wonder why Felicità's struggling in choosing a partner.

I watched this series because it had good animation and a mediocre but bearably decent storyline, but this last ep just blows :P

my final rating of this is 5/10 ...i did not like the pacing in this show ,i would have been fine if this was a 4-6 episode OVA ,or if they kept 12 episodes like this and paced it better with more action

Such a horrible ending. Everything in the entire series was pointless:
Arcana Duello- Papa remains Papa; no one marries Felicita
The World endangers Papa's life and Felicita needs to choose someone to love to save him- Papa is saved, but she doesn't choose anybody
Nova and Liberta manage to use their Arcana Powers- Don't actually use them the right way
Nova and Liberta promising to win for Felicita- They're forced out the tournament
Nova and Liberta's rivalry- They tie

Don't even get me started on Felicita's fights. She's not that strong. There's not a single person at J.C Staff who could think of a way for Felicita to defeat an actual character. They're response, "How about we say she wins, but we don't actually show how she did it". And why was Sumire trying to marry her daughter? Her fight didn't even make sense. The maid said "This will be a knockout tournament", so why did she lose just for taking a knee. Unlike Nova's previous opponent she didn't even drop her weapon in order to be considered knocked out. The fights were all called at stupid moments (that is if you can consider them fights. All of them were pretty bad). This series might have been a 5 or 6 out of 10, but this episode pushed it down to 4.

What a terrible anime.
The only episode that could've been at least worth watching, the Arcana Duello, was full of short, uninteresting fights. Nova and Liberta's fight, the one that should've had a proper winner, made an asspull to prevent pissing off fujoshis who favored one of them and ended in a tie. Then all of a sudden they make Felicita a strong person with little development pointing towards that she had such strength, and wins the Duello. I wouldn't be surprised if this was just a way to make a self-insert character for fujoshis.

This whole episode undid what the main conflict was, making this whole series pointless.

I enjoyed watching the bishies.
I expected more from the 3 musketeers though (Luca, Pace & Debito).

But, I guess this is expected of an anime based off an otome game.
Either it turns out to be real good, bearable or just horrid LOL

6/10 from me for the series

At beginning of series,I expected something like a cool vigilante mafia family fighting evil organization for protecting there island(something like hitman reborn!).But everything just went down the drain the by episode 3.Seriously,helping a cat from a tree?
This series just threw all its potential in the trash.I mean they have cool powers and bad ass outfit.The story would have a lot better.I am really disappointedI expected it to suck since episode 2.
Last two weeks,I stopped till episode 10,and I decided to just wait till the Arcana Duello in the last episode hoping that it will improve it in some way,But I was wrong.
I come to the last episode and what do I see:
Poor fightsShitty fights.
The ginger girl wins fight for some magical reason.
Nova and Liberta ends with a draw(dick move J.C staff)
An ending that made me like…….O_O “That’s it?”

This series is not worth watching
4/10

The anime is a SHOUJO ROMANCE, when were you under the impression that it was intended for boys, even the source material for the game it is an adaptation of an otome.

Most of the comments here dont make sense. How was their filler or that they rushed into things, we clearly went through the two months that was from the announcement of the Duello to the actual Duello itself where the characters matured enough to be able to use their Arcana powers comfortably. I dont know where people had the idea that it would be a Shounen Battle Anime...

Jolly is the boss even if he didn't fight (which is a pity, really, I was looking forward to some alchemy tricks). Somehow, I found the interactions between him and the baka trio (Luca, Pace, Debito) the most enjoyable part of the show. I still smile every time Debito calls him 'jiji'.

My main grip is the rushed ending. I like the fact that they took the normal, i.e. open ending. Not so fond of the fact that they put so much focus on Liberta and Nova in general (they're not my favorite, but it's not that I don't like those characters; however, the fact that they're both rather close relatives of Felicita bothers me somewhat if we talk romance with her).

I guess it's partially the game's fault that the Duello is so jumbled as the game didn't give enough material for the fights to be any good. The only way to make the fights look good was for the anime staff to take a rather big creative leeway and start thinking up the heap of things for the fights that were missing in the game. They did something similar in the first ep, and it was rather good, too, so I think they could've managed if they tried, even if in case with the Duello the task is more difficult as it's about actual Arcana powers rather than simple swords, guns and bazookas. So, the anime staff is to blame for the fact that they didn't try to do that and wasted such a good potential, which I can only lament.

Still, the anime got me hooked up on the series, and I'll continue to read the manga and whatnot, so, for that, overall 7/10. I've seen worse, after all, so...

overly cliche ending. My fave part was when Debito, Pace, and Luca all lost. <3 Luca! ^^

I was half expecting Jolly just to come in at the end of the episode to troll everyone. Jolly! Y U NO Troll this episode???? :(

Wonder what the unaired episode will be about. O.o

Sorry to say this, but it also fails as a "shoujo romance" ... the romance part is so weak even Fel has no idea how to chose anyone as a partner, her conclusion seemed to be "lets just all be friends"

THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Ah this series coming to an end. I got to admit I really got into the concept of the Tarots. It’s rather mundane as itself a theme being repeated but it’s intriguing how much of an interest it has in animes. That being said the uniqueness of it this time around is its fusion with characters to grant them powers. Perhaps done and done but in the setup it used, it was not.

That being said Felicita was really quite something for a girl and added to my harem collection and of course if ever to the Hall of Fame of Females. One of the things I will miss of her is the following,

Those kicks are not something loads of girls come with and the more so like Felicita.

About Lucas/Debito/Pace, I am kind of WTF in the spoiler
because them losing like that is plain O_o WTF happened to that is the weirdest. Totally skipped but hey time constraints and that I can see.

About Liberta VS Dante, I liked a lot Liberta’s determination but his facials in the spoiler
were the best of that fight along with his kind of power up by looking at Felicita. Liked his telekinetic sword pull back towards his hand.

About Nova VS Sumire, now that fight in the spoiler
got some good Mama shots and moves. That fan must be made of rather high quality stuff to be able to take in hits form a katana and not be even scratched. That being said Nova’s face in the spoiler
was of the best I find in general during this episode and certainly his fight was the hardest. Even I could not do this to my own mother even to fight her.

About Felicita’s last service strand, she was totally love in the following,

Along with the spoiler
revealing rather well her chest once again. How can I not love her? Impossible. Felicita has a great body and I like it.

Moreover in the following spoiler
the under the skirt parts were interesting themselves in showing some service. Rather I wonder if they are censored because one time they look like bloomers and the other times spats so it looks like censoring. To me it can be black panties.

About thee end, I liked a lot Felicita’s determination in the spoiler
whom shows her serious faces and that double hug on Nova/Liberta was nice. Their final moves were SFX good too.

That being said the end should be obvious that it’s OPEN ED. Meaning there are things to solve and like get more hosts along with many possibilities opened. Hence why they did not adapt a solid end. Cause it continues most likely. S2 HERE WE GO! But no really this series was fine for me.

Characters developed and their backgrounds and still much can be developed for S2 so that’s fine and mass fan service of Felicita easily saved and open for S2 possibilities since S1 had a decent amount of it for its genre. Fights were great but it’s their integration of Tarots that made it nice.

Well finally I stop there and give it 8/10. That’s it and S2 I will watch no problem. Just give more service of Felicita. Starting it in this season, it should continue on S2. Lots of males are captured by Felicita's charms IMO.

This series truly suffered from various inconsistencies. The ending felt rushed, more or less, as well. In other words, it was a plain mediocre experience.

This episode was horrifyingly bad. Putting the entire arcana duelo into one episode was a ridiculous idea.

It felt like the ending wasn't really an ending but then again the series wasn't going anywhere, the whole thing felt like fillers.
