REview:
As far as animation goes, its pretty good quality but nothing special out of the ordinary . So far the characters seem interesting and not to over the top.The plot is not very strong though but not too weak either however the idea wherein the demon lords are competitng to be elected and Twining is more of a "what you can do for me and I can endorse you " attitute is almost how politician are viewed , in which that is what could drive the comedic plot of this one,

BUt there seem to be a dark side about the Nephilins and the there is the ring . I do hope there is more character development to make it interesting .
However there are more dudes in this title indeed But with their contrasting characters ,this might be an entertaining title for sure.

I like all the seiyuu who are in this title so far .Its funny when the title Realist came to mind I thought of Eguchi san and then i heard his voice ...he was just in SNAFU and his line reads are pertty much the same .

I havent read the manga but at least this one does not feel like Arcania but of Hakkenden.
So what do you guys think .


p.s. THIS IS NOT A BL Title

One of the weaker series imo. I tried to focus a lot on it but wasn't too much into what was happening. I haven't read the manga or other material related to the franchise. Oh and I got a Karneval vibe from watching the series. Other than that, I do like the premise somewhat but this won't be something I'll like too much; possible candidate for a drop.

I couldn't stop thinking about that girl from SNAFU during this.



I might keep watching though. I know nothing about the story, but some of the manga panels that came up on google images looked pretty awesome. We'll see though, I'm decidedly not the target demographic here. XD

I actually liked this(maybe because I like the manga......). It may not be anything special but it's still nice and entertaining to watch. I also liked the OP and ED. Oh and also Sitori comes in the next episode!


He's one of my favorites

Same, my nose isn't bleeding for this one obviously. Was kind of interesting but I am definitely burning out on all the Devils and Demons anime lately... not to mention the bishounens. Don't like bishounen or gar, give me moe, moe, moe!

Well there are lots of dudes in it and it is definitely playing with the idea of " this one is mine , or become mine " and so might not be for you.

I havent read the manga so I would give it a few more episodes and see , all I know its not written as a boy love title but as a Shojo with a bit of comedy . A nintendo 3DS game is also being developed.

I didn't actually finish the first episode. It just didn't really appeal to me.

I kept going back after reading comments saying it isn't really what it seems at first, but I decided to drop it.

With so many shows this season that I actually am interested in, I don't really have the time to keep up with something that wasn't really entertaining me.

I tried this one out, it felt pretty bland to me. Also, I'm thinking that the protagonist is kind of a d-bag. I had a bit of a laugh at his classmate though I think he was the best part.

Also, right after the first scene I thought of that girl from SNAFU too haha, wish I remembered her name.

I tried. It seemed bland. I'll watch a couple more episodes before deciding for sure, but my early instincts say it won't survive the cut. (Karneval didn't either)
