Synopsis

Seth is an aspiring sorcerer from the Pompo Hills area. Like all wizards, he is an "infected," one of the few living beings who survived the contact of the Nemesis—creatures fallen from the sky that contaminate and decimate all those they touch. Being immune to them, Seth wants to become a Hunter and fight the Nemesis. But more than that, Seth wants to engage in a quest that goes beyond the simple hunt for monsters. He wants to find the Radiant, their presumed cradle. Aided by a faction of fellow sorcerers, he travels the world in search of the Radiant, under the harsh scrutiny of the Inquisition.

Well.. I liked the OP and the ED. And the production values are strangely high

The episode itself though...:neutral

It's like somebody read off a list of shounen cliche's and not the good ones either. I'll give it a couple more episodes though somebody put some effort into this show and I can only hope something will emerge to justify that. The main thing that needs to be addressed is how annoying the MC is. That's going to be a problem.

Decent, classic indeed but I didn't find it boring or annoying.

I thought Alma was a guy at first :sweatdrop.

I watched it after getting home from work and had a nice 20 minute nap in the middle of it... :XD. I re-watched it and decided it is not going to excite me, but as long as it doesn't annoy me, I'll keep watching.

I blame you guys for this.

French Black Clover?
I mean sure. Whatever floats their boats.

It wasn't bad but also nothing special. The quality was strangely high though.

There's nothing wrong with the setting and the Studio, but it feels like something is missing...
I'll keep watching it and see what that "something" is.

Liked this episode more than the first. The leader of the thieves has a point, these citizens are so stupid.... There is no reason to care about people like this.

Third was the best episode yet, IMO.

I was pretty down on this show initially but it's growing on me. What it did this week was surprisingly emotional.

Just watched the third episode. Yes, it was very good. Hopefully it will get better.

Another good episode.

With Shirogane and Melie, I can already say that this day has been very fulfilling :hearts. I can never get enough of Aoi Yuuki :awe.

How are you finding this Anime?
It's not like I consider it bad or anything, but at the same time I'm wondering if there will be a reason to consider it excellent.

I doubt it will become "excellent" but it has potential IMO. The first episodes were a bit too slow.

I feel about the same. Honestly, the first two episodes were average as can be but the last two showed steady progress.

Last week we had the kind of emotion that we've been needing to drive a story like this and this week we have Melie who is obviously a homerun of a supporting character and the introduction of a pretty cool academy hub town place.

This was a pretty good show this week... but there was something left out!

Mr Bobley, the mascot... Is he a Nemesis,... or is he the reincarnation of Bob Marley?! Or something else entirely!?
We need to know the answer!

Nice introduction to Artemis. I expected some kind of test for the newcomers but it was very simple.

As long as I get some violent Mélie every episode, I'm happy. That character is just a win every time she does anything.

Another really good episode. Poor Doc.

Doc can't catch a break :D. So, Seth's lack of control is because of his gloves? Shouldn't Alma be aware of that?

Episode 7: Ok, I guess, but shouldn't they do some plot progression soon? I don't really expect a serious dramatic plot, but it should be more developed than a simple 'monster-of-the-day' series.... either that or go full-comedy please.

They really are leaning heavily in the comedy direction right now. Though I am enjoying it. Mainly because they've got a pretty likable central trio here.

Surprised by that episode. I was starting to find the comedy too repetitive but it ended rather well. I didn't think I'd like an episode with friendship as theme this much.

The next episode will be more serious apparently.

Episode 11

This should be a busy arc... There's multiple Nemesis, another sorcerer (Grimm), the Inquisition and a mysterious person behind the Nemesis in this town (Pied Piper?)
--- Double Post Merged, , Original Post Date: ---
Episode 12

Another Nemesis was spotted in the historic town of Hamelin in Germany

It wouldn't have anything to do with the Pied Piper story would it? :4head

I was looking ahead at the scheduling and I was disappointed annoyed to discover that Radiant only has 21 episodes total in this series.
By this Saturday 12/29 they will have broadcast 13 of them... this leaves us with a grand total of 8 left for all of next season.
I checked both MAL and Livechart and they both said 21 so unless there is some kind of mistake somewhere, we can expect 4 weeks of Skip weeks or recap episodes next season.

Episode 14...
...
At this point, the story can be almost a version of plagiarism... The girl with the flute's name was revealed today...
her name is... Hameline

I'm so surprised! :kappa
