Synopsis



The Characters

Saki Watanabe
VA: Risa Taneda
Saki is a new student at the magic school, “Saint Academy”. Once she joins Saint Academy, she hangs out with Satoru, Maria, and Shun, her friends from Wakien Elementary School, as well as Mamoru, her new classmate. While she's not shy, she is sensitive and delicate.

Satoru Asahina
VA: Kanako Tōjō
Satoru has been friends with Saki since they were little. He has an outspoken personality, and is unafraid to speak bluntly. He often argues with Saki. While he doesn't mean ill by it, he tends to exaggerate things when he talks, so often people mistake him for boasting when he's trying to be serious.

Maria Akiduki
VA: Kana Hanazawa
Maria is Saki's best friend and a beautiful girl with pale, white skin and blazing red hair. She's very strong willed, and commands the weak, quiet Mamoru, but in times of need she devotes herself to protecting him. On the other hand, she does show a girlish fear of scary stories too.

Mamoru Ito
VA: Haruka Kudo
After joining Saint Academy and being put in the same class as Saki, he follows them around. He's a very shy boy, and rarely voices his own thoughts and opinions. Meanwhile, he feels very comfortable with the relationship between him and Marina, who leads him around.

Shun Aonuma
VA: Mai Todo
Another one of Saki's childhood friends. Shun is very clever, with a strong intellectual curiosity and mature manner. His marks in magic are excellent at Saint Academy, and many have high hopes for his future.

First Impressions

The preview screening is out and the previews looked pretty nice. It is labeled as Sci-Fi and Supernatural so expect some things to go out of this world. The music and characters' designs looks alright so far. However, the visuals is absolutely stunning and one that's pleasing to the eyes.

According to an interview, Yūsuke Kishi expressed his various ideas of coming up with the novel/series. The theme involving a supernatural dimensional war is a very intriguing topic. That and given the fact his novel won a Japanese Science Fiction Award makes it curious for anyone to watch this. This is likely one of those series that you can't help but see the way it presents itself in the world of science fiction from the eyes of a gifted writer.

The premiere is on CS-Asahi, a premium satellite channel. The second airing is the first one on standard broadcast station

The airing schedule:

If it follows normal protocol, anyone simulcasting it would not get it until after the first normal broadcast airing.

Episode 1

Wow, those visuals. Absolutely stunning! Need to watch this again on 1080p when CR's version debuts. But anyways, this pilot episode started off weird in a bloody way.



The eerie soundtrack and the visuals mixes in very well and reflects that futuristic like look and gives off a surreal atmosphere. I won't spoil much this episode but not too much happened. Still playing by the theme and genres, the upcoming episodes should be a brilliant watch.



Kana Kanazawa also plays her role well this episode. Glad to see her around.

Agreed, great concept, neat opening scenes, wish they had shown more about the inital impact but I guess that's not what it is about. Can't wait to see it properly here in HD.
