I have just found this series ready for download in a website I regularly visit. And with this slow connection, downloading is hard. Anyway reading the summary and the genre it looks quite interesting. A fresh, new series, not too long either so I'm willing to give it a try.
wow, I just watched the first episode and it looks really great !!!
The princess is, if I describe her with just one word, funny/hilarious to me...
Ah so-so first episode for me. Animation didn't disappoint and the setting didn't look too bad either but for some reason it didn't really captivate me. Preview looked pretty nice though, I hope we will get some more explanations next time.
First episode was pretty good, it at least met my expectations. Mahiro is a cool guy, though I'm kind of getting sick of the whole vengeful deuteragonist, hopefully he doesn't get consumed by his revenge like every other one does. The main character did not impress, I'm hoping he isn't one of those useless ones. Other than that the premise was nice, the witch girl was cool, and I can't wait for the next episode.
The first episode is a nice opening for me. The heavy, dark atmosphere: I love it. The plot is more or less clear. I'm waiting for more action, and twist. The only confusing thing would be the characters, which I'm looking forward to through the rest of the series.
I especially like the supernatural effect of iron human and the magic. <3
a very average episode. I was so confused throughout the episode. First i thought the girl on a bicycle was fuwas g-friend, and that he hangout with her cuz she resembled his sister.At the very end i understood she was actually his sister omg *_* than the whole random mage thingy.I dunno maybe plot wise not my thing, well see.Going to stick for few eps to see how it turns out
Haaaah... Good old school magic...
Well The characters seem interessting enough.
Yoshino picked my interest. Nobody is more dagerous than a man who lost something so important I guess... I kinda can't estimate him... Not yet.
I am not interested in the 2 male leads so far, But the princess mage does interest me.Wanna see her behaviour in later eps
Well, episode 2 is more or less just fine. Not a big progress (except that we can expect a nice battle next week) especially plot-wise.
I really wonder and really want to know why Yoshino and Aika covered the fact that they are dating. Seriously.
Mahiro in my eyes is predestined to fail. Blind rage paired with the only desire to avenge will fail.
For your question, we saw how Mahiro reacted to the Aika-wants-to-kiss-situation.
He will realize it eventually.
Episode 3 is out. I quite like it, I think we learned a bit more about magic, especially Kusaribe's magic, with a taste of some action (which I like as usual). Yoshino once again proven to be a strange, mysterious guy. I'm looking forward to see how he grows, and if he will "break" someday, LOL~
I'm still wondering about Tree of Genesis vs Tree of Exodus. I originally thought they were the same. XD
And next episode will talk about the past, it seems. Really looking forward to it.
I dunno maybe just me but the guy they were fighting kinda reminds me of future Rokudo Mukuro
I don't mind the defensive magic, personally. Probably because I like defense quite much. "Best offense is the best defense", after all.
I'm not really worried about the princess stranded on an island. At first it made me wondering why they had to lock her up there just to shut her from other people, but now we know why. And as she said herself she wasn't completely powerless. I guess there will be a time when Yoshino and Mahiro need her help, and they will have no other choice but to rescue her first. :P
This anime so far is great, but to me, also the story that is yet to come looks awesome...
I hope you don't mind some "small" spoilers:
In the story I see Yoshino like a man who "unintentionally", without him even realizing (god that lucky bastard...), catches any woman's heart....
But I should probably warn you that he is the hardest to understand, because as I said he is a total "genious" who know's how to "manipulate people" with simple "words" !!!
To sum it up, Yoshino is an iduvidual, so advanced, that even people in the story have a hard time figuring him out...
So about the princess, I will only say that you should expect, unexpected...
PS: If you are wondering from where I know what "might" happen next, it's from manga(just recently I found a special thread on mangahelpers dedicated only to the manga), translated by "egscans", where the story untill now was totally the same as in anime (maybe a few differently translated things, but their meaning is still the same) !!!
