LN? A-1? Probably going to be trash. I've noticed A-1 is in a trend where they drop a fantasy action anime at least once or twice a year, generally the LN ones are terrible though, in fact most of the LN adaptations they do are pretty bad. Although I'd say that's more because LNs are generally bad.

I've only read the manga adaptation of this and I'm liking the designs and casts so far. Barbara looks like another character altogether from what was shown in the manga but maybe that's just the manga adaptation being different from the LN like usual. Let's hope the director can save this one from being butchered too much by A-1.

Lets see if A-1 can outdo themselves with this. I was interested in the LN a few months back.


Man is there any studio with more polarized positions on their general quality than A-1?

My only gripe with A-1 is when they try to do action anime. They're just not the right studio for it. They're not a bad studio but I won't say they're great either, especially when it comes to their adaptations.

This seems like it's handled by a good director though, who's also doing the script and series composition, and I like the art in PV so I'll be having some sort of expectations for this despite what I said above.

Considering how conservative and sexist Japan is there's not you can do.
And it's not like Japan is the only one who does it, gays in media were always over the top until things have started calming down in recent years, even now, if there's a gay in your show they are likely there for comedic reasons.

Why do the character designs make it so obvious that the third character is going to be yet another lame, offensive gay stereotype?


As opposed to any other? I honestly can't really think of one instance in anime where a homosexual character isn't played as a full throttle flamer instead of just another character who happens to be gay. Japan is really not so great when it comes to stereotyping.

Tomokazu Seki? check, madafucking Daisuke Namikawa?, check, Hiroki Yasumoto (dat character, though)?, check, Mamiko Noto!?, check. Sums that to Yoshimasa Hosoya and Hiroyuki Yoshino and that series is a must watch.

Travesti.
(Description from the novel)
Needless to say... that hair isn't green and those eyes aren't really sky-blue.
I have no idea why they'd change these things in particular but... they changed them.
This is how he looks in the manga.


Renji got a seriously good pick so that's great too. And he looks pretty spot on, badass.

Now... Barbara... that's not who Barbara is meant to be... now, I'm actually going to be honest and say this is an actual good change, it's a lot more fitting than the manga and novel Barbara for a thief class. Needless to say that her seiyuu is not what I had in mind either but since she's different now as long as they keep the personality it's all good.
For the curious, here's her in the manga:
And in the novel (description):

Sadly yes, but I wonder how his voice actor will pull it off. Hiroki usually sounds deep af for his characters.
