I caught your edit.






Myeah... I got you confused with the person you were actually quoting and snapped a little. Sorry.

And on the note of this little mistake I am SOOO going to bed.

Too many animes too many first impression forums to visit too little time... so tired.

Sorry once again and good night.

Are y'all kidding me? I mean are y'all fucking kidding me?? This show is absolutely amazing, & way better than all the other boring shows this season like Tari Tari & Kokoro Connect.
I mean, are we watching the same thing here? This show has it all: good plot, action, & eventually romance.
If you guys think this show sucks, then I no longer have faith in the otaku community.

Or maybe there just wasnt enough fanservice, was that it?



Kokoro Connect shits on this shit.
And wow you're so easily pleased. This is just an anime with cool-looking characters.
There seems to be nothing else this shit has to offer.

Also,
*boring plot
*boring love triangle
*boring reverse harem
*boring leading lady
*boring everything

#OverratedAnimeOfTheSeason







Sorry but. Kokoro Connect brings nothing new to the table. The character designs are unoriginal (K-On! comes to mind) & the plot I've seen a million times, maybe not so much in anime, but in just about everything else.
I think the main girl in Arcana Famiglia isn't boring at all. I don't see too many females who can kick somebody's ass, maybe besides Medaka. She's not just sitting on her ass like the other girls in reverse harems, she's actually doing something.
By the way I like that little guy swinging on the tree. It's cute.

Bahaha.
I'm a pretty emo boy with blue hair who likes to ignore perfectly kind people. I save cute little kittens in my spare time, but I don't want anyone to know that, because then they might think I actually have a heart.

Some of these characters are so.... ojrbngoiujrngiorjvwi.
It has potential, but is poorly written and cliche.
I'm gonna watch one more episode, but if it doesn't get better, I'm dropping it.

Two episodes of uninteresting character development. They don't really use their arcana powers so who cares about which card they signed up with? Aimless and uninspired that's what this is.

Episode 2

Why didn't they use this episode first instead of a flashback style.
It would have been interesting to show how she meets one of the guys one by one and learn her place in the family . They should do one first person perspective and not everyone.
Or they should went directly to her father announcing the duel and ordering her to become the price bride. Then work their way from the beginning. In that way the characters develop in each episode up to the climax episode in the final episode .

But the way they did it , the characters are shallow and the plot is weak .

This episode seem to be an attempt to develop her character but it is all over the place and I it didnt work well.

They have a lot of famous seiyuu in this one but what a waste.The female seiyuu Noto san is Sawako in Kimi ni Todoke and is currently in 4 other anime this season alone.

Utter disappointment. I’m one of the few who liked the pilot episode but this just fails to live up to my expectation. I really wanted the battle to start, rather than having a preparation stage (that seemed more like a filler). This episode focused on Felicita, who’s not exactly a main female character you’ll get attached to. All I can say is that what a waste of an episode. It’s only slated for 12 so they should really maximize what they have to work with.

I can't believe the 2nd episode was more boring than the first. For a 12 episode series, that's pretty much an unforgivable sin.

I like it myself, reverse harems are always a nice variation, and I don't demand OMGFIGHTING as a requirement for a good show.

Personally, I hoped for more fighting/dueling. The first episode was promising, but the second was just bad. I'll stick with it for another episode at the very least. However, if the story doesn't return to the main plot soon, I'm out.

Well can everyone stop complaining? We hardly get any reverse harems, always ecchi and slice of life bullshit.

I do admit it's sort of boring and cliche so far, BUT ALL ANIMES ARE AT ONE POINT OR ANOTHER. I think it has potential to become better in further episodes (like every other anime). Just give it a few more episodes and then decide to drop it!

Also, reverse harem animes are hardly done justice. There's just TOO MUCH info from the game to put into a 12-episode series! I'm sure the game is MUCH MUCH better than what the anime is so far. An example would be Hakuouki. The anime was very... It was great until I played the game. Now the anime is just "meh" to me.

Hope you guys decide to give it a few more episodes!

I don't have a problem with reverse harem, and I wasn't expecting ZOMGFIGHTING. I do expect decent character development, and some level of entertainment.

I think ep 2 was a bit of a let down. You also admit episode 2 was boring. Twelve episodes isn't much time to tell a story. Viewers need to be quickly engaged, otherwise they'll go off and watch something else. So far, I don't think the criticisms have been unduly unfair.

I'm happy to give this show another episode, but ep 3 needs to really be an improvement.

Yup, I think the mistake here was that they pulled off a "filler" episode right after the pilot episode that really seemed to have dropped the ball. The pilot episode was also a bit rushed in so..the initial impression wasn't that well performed either.

Overall, I can't say that I'm too surprised so far though on how this series turns out considering J.C. Staff is involved in this. I'm also really hoping that the next episode steps things up this Sunday.

I don't think you should be too offended. Most of us here are giving our thoughts on a specific episode, not the entire anime.

I'm pretty excited for this series, which is why it's hard not to feel let down when it has an episode not worth saying much. Well not all adaptations are perfect to begin with. The original material will always be better but it's the challenge of the animation studio to bring us a slice of that in the most entertaining way.

We can comment on the whole series when the "whole series" amounts to only two episodes and both of those were disappointing. Two episodes in and we're still getting character introductions and their arcana powers (that they rarely use) and explanations on whose card they made a deal with which doesn't seem to matter at this point. There are simply too many characters and two episodes were given to character development and I'm sure they're not done with that yet. I tend to agree with the others that the pilot and second episode were more like fillers than progressing towards anything at all.

To tell the truth I'm enjoying Sengoku Collection more than this series.
