The Famiglia is made up of people who have made contracts with the Arcane cards, and have received special abilities due to this. The Papa has decided it's time for him to retire and give up his seat to a new male who has control over an Arcane. To decide who in the "family" gets this seat, he calls for a tournament between Arcane-users. To the winner, he promises the "Papa" seat, a wish of the winner's choice... And his daughter's hand in marriage. Refusing to accept this, Felicitá decides to fight to choose her own path, with her friends Liberta and Nova fighting for her freedom by her side.

    Personal Thoughts

    Only one episode so far. It didn't strike me out as much as I thought it would be, but fingers crossed. I will still check this series out a few more.

    Re: Arcana Famiglia

    Ust told me it's a series based on game for girls... kinda understandable with all the bishounen around. First episode was okay for me but the only thing I'm hoping for is some nice action - doubt I should expect great characters or a awesome story

    second episode should come out today so let's see if it will be able to deliver some nice entertainment the premise of the Arcana cards seems mildly interesting~

    Yeah, it's from otome game, and since I read the whole story of each route, I already know the basic plot story and the characters, so I already have someone in mind to root for. LUCA!!

    I wonder who will be the main guy though... My first guess will be Liberta but I won't be shocked if in the end Felicita doesn't end up with anybody since she is quite a badass heroine and one never knows how anime adapted from otome game will end...

    When I first heard that it's going to be an anime, I was excited but the first eps didn't match my expectation. Well, it's still the beginning, so there's still hope. I will keep enjoying rolling their meaningful names on my tongue though... I love everything that sounds Italiano~~

    Personally, bluntly speaking I'm not sure what to expect from this anime. The plot of fighting-to-get-your-freedom thing is not really my type, and I'll get bored quickly unless there are some twists offered. I suppose that's what I'm looking forward to? I don't know, it starts off weak for me. ^^; So we're kinda similar there, haha~

    I think I understand why you like Luca.

    Well, judging from the plot so far, and the seiyuu, it feels as if the choice is more towards Liberta...

    Re: Arcana Famiglia

    Is this a reversed harem? Damn them trapping me with Arcana and stuff. x)

    But the first two episodes seemed rather fun and I really like the seyuu of the eyepatchguy.

    The plot of fighting-to-get-your-freedom thing is the main plot indeed, but I think along the way, they will reveal each character's past and I got to tell you... they are quite interesting.

    Oh, you do? Tell me why then.

    Yeah, Liberta fits the requirements to be the main guy.

    Debito? I like the way he says bambina... Very.. Italiano.

    I rather dislike the way Jolly talks... So.. slow.

    I must say the second episode is so boring, such filler. Next episode better catch up properly.

    So far we only get to see something is 'wrong' with Liberta's past... Look forward to the others then.

    He reminds me of Kaji from La Corda, though he is not blonde. Carefree, cute, stupid too... Maybe not accurate, but just by looking at him I can tell you'll like him. XDD

    I dislike both Debito and Jolly because they talk TOO long, even though their sentences are actually slow. In addition their voices are rather heavy so they make me sleepy. XD

    Agreed, he's the seiyuu I like the most so far. Him saying Bambin all the time makes me chuckle

    I think this eps is still counted as introduction? I remember that in the preview for eps 2 last week, it was Liberta talking, and we see a lot of Liberta. In the preview for eps 3, Nova is the one talking and I think next week we'll see more Nova? If they really want to take this path, it's going to take a lot of eps. Aside from the youngsters, there are still the trio (Debito, Pace, Luca) and the old guys (Dante, Jolly). :|

    LOL~ Actually it's far more simpler than that. He's the most good-looking among the guys. Actually I like Jolly too, coz he's also good-looking (when he removes his glasses, ofc) but he's... an ojii-san. And he can't talk in normal speed. :|

    At least Debito says interesting Italian words.

    Ah, you were talking about Reimei no Arcana, right? Unfortunately, no, this is not an adaptation of the manga. It is from a game, apparently. Have you watched it? What do you think so far?

    The latest episode was really boring for me. Last time it was going after a cat, now we were taking care of children. Where is the plot?!

    After 5 minutes I got tired and looked at the preview. Seems like another boring daily-life episode so I'm dropping this show :/

    One or two more for me, probably. If things don't get improved by then... I'll drop it for real. It is unfortunate since I like the anime's title and the original base plot sounds pretty good.
