I was pretty happy with the anime as a whole. It wasn't fantastic, but it was definitely one of the better ones from this season.

Episode 12 - Finale

After all this, and even though Myucel does have her cute points, I'm still more of a fan of Petralka



Shinichi was kind of dumb to run into a place like that but I guess that's just who he is and he can't let a rare copy burn (but it still burned anyway didn't it? lol)

Overall the show has been pretty good though the antagonist wasn't really well developed and was short lived.

I'll give this show an 8.5 out of 10

Agreed on both counts.

Overall, I really enjoyed the season. Loved the concept. The humor and references were great, characters were quite fun, great music. Not sure I can buy the anime discs but I enjoyed the OP theme and character song discs enough to buy them.

I have to wonder if the Japanese government has really given up. An expected next tactic would be for them to try and undermine Shinichi's favor with the Eldant government.

The comment that was made to Minori about her being in the same situation as Shinichi also left some lingering doubts, although nothing else came of it in this episode.

I assume with 7 light novels out that material for a second series would not be a problem, but does anyone know how much material was used for the 12 episodes?

Speaking of that, while searching for an answer, I found this blog entry from back in August, and it is interesting to see the First Exposure Effect in full action, making some people complain about the series well before the first episode launched.

I don't know for sure, but my guess would be either 3 or 4 novels were used. More likely 4, but someone who's actually read them could say for certain.

That was a pretty hilarious blog post. I understand being upset by changes from one medium to another, but that response was pretty out-of-whack. I mean, okay, they changed Myucel's eye color and her cheekbone structure has changed, therefore the series will be the worst thing ever and the people responsible are horrible people. I mean, really?

In some ways, I wish my life was so simple and unfettered that I could get that angry about something so pointless.

All I see in that blog post is a bunch of bitching and moaning.

I mean you don't really see anyone bitch about how they changed the looks of the characters in Attack on Titan(for example Eren in the manga has silver eyes, not the green eyes he has in the anime).

Anyways, as for the show itself, definitely the biggest surprise of the season, and damn good overall. Though it was a bit of a let down how they went about the Japanese government's ulterior motives. I think I feel this way because I feel they took too long to get into it. If they started it even one episode earlier it might have been better.

Overall I'd give the series a 9/10 and it is firmly in my Top 5 for the season.

There are 8 novels out, the 8th came out recently but I haven't read any of them as I only have so much time (believe it or not!) so unfortunately I don't know how far the first season got.

No deep discussion or debate I just liked this anime! BTW Petralka is actually a shrewd ruler thanks to anime and manga! They had plans and precautions in place!

Overall it was a nice show - even if the magical-half-elf-hikikomori-government-basher-love-declaration was cut off^^

Just finished and I'm trying to come to grips with what Motoba did. It seemed a needless action just to create drama by returning Shinichi's request for more product with the speech he did calling him disposable, revealing the Japanese Government's master plan for invasion, and then threatening to assassinate him.

Why we would he say all that for no reason? Is it because he didn't agree with what the government was doing and figured things would play out like they did with Shinichi? Is that why he let the Koganuma go save him and let Petralka's surveillance owl in the room? Why he hid that she knew Japanese? That's what I thought, until the final talk between Shinichi and Motoba in the palace and then Petralka's veiled threat to end the show about not harming Shinichi.

I'm not really sure. If it was the case that Motoba planned this all along, then it was a good ending and I can accept it.

Otherwise, it was a senseless ending where Motoba just ruined the entire cultural invasion plan for no reason and then tried to kill Shinichi twice. All for the sake of finishing up the season with some suspense.

Magic > guns.

An entertaining show, and definitely better than what I was expecting when I picked it up in the middle of the season. Always nice to have a lighthearted anime surprise you while waiting for the best of the season each week.

Sad that Shinichi x Myucel was totally official though...

I liked this show though, certain episodes I even loved, but pulling the typical last episode unresolved relationship issues is weak.

Look at all that plot.
