this looks really good with nice character designs and music. I hope the writers don't screw this up with a generic plotline and stupid story...don't this to be like Chaos Dragon

When 3 creator romance combined.
And result a action story? and nothing about romance.
maybe it is something new.

The music in the PV was really good it looks kinda generic though.

I want it to be good...I really do.

But having 3 famous LN authors throw a handful of their already existing characters into a universe and then trying to write a coherent story around them just screams bad idea and a train wreck waiting to happen. Nothing about that seems like it's going to be successful.

Remember what happened last time a big name collaboration happened? It was call Chaos Dragon.

Want it to be good, but I know not to get my hopes up. At least the visuals will be awesome.

I will give this a try!

Is this related Kuzu to Kinka no Qualidea ? Both are collaborative works of WW and Sagara (this one also got DAL author though), but premise-wise they are totally different.


Eh aside from the music, it's pretty bland and looked like your typical LN battle harem stories. Well i'm probably still gonna check it later

Defenetly gonna watch

A-1 Pictures and especially Watari Wataru is what piqued my interest here. PV looks pretty good. That music. Staff looks decent too. I'm looking forward to this one.

What is up with the main guy having this powerful arm thing now I
ve been seeing this more often and I not the only one that sees the main character with an arm power thingy????

Oh look another generic looking anime

Dec 19, 2015 9:53 AM by ZachM

looks like a ln adaptation alright...

Also REAALLY worrisome that the hack who designed ufoub character designs is back. Will characters look like furries or rhinos again?

OST might be good tho

>Magical school setting

No thanks.

Looks at the cover picture, instantly thought of Rail Wars.
Looks at the PV, instantly knows the music will carry the show hard.

Dec 19, 2015 9:14 AM by LeFlower-kun

There is a rail, it's RAIL Wars all over again guys!!!!!11!1!!!!

But, not really looking forward for this one.

Looks like the same "magical highschool" garbage we get every year. Pass.

Quesadilla Code

Shit sounds so vague.. The plot sounds like just an excuse to animate fight scenes.
