I loved the first episode and I love the second episode even more.

I love the cultural references, especially since much early manga and anime was about culture shock, cultural takeover, I believe referring to things that started in Japan with Meiji and then the events after WWII with incoming American culture but here we have them talking about instead sending Japanese culture to another world in an interesting way it is about sending their culture outside of Japan in _this_ world.

It is funny that they are not considering translating the books. But then when you realize that few can read anyways then Japanese or the native language don't really matter. But at least if you dubbed the anime and games then they could hear it, hmm... But it seems they really want to teach them all Japanese, they see perhaps what would be lost in translation.

Oppai half elf maid on the left, loli princess on your lap, which to choose! Then we have Minori as well but she seemed to be enjoying a yaoi fantasy between Shinichi and Petralka's knight...

And a world where you beat your servants and everyone foreign must serve in the army... For what looked like a silly otaku in fantasy land show, it is already showing a lot of depth.

Can't wait for next week!

I just watched the first two episodes as I swapped this series out for BlazBlue as my 15th series I am watching this season.

And well looks like I have an early candidate for my Most Surprising series of the season.

Thought from the premise this would be a simple fanservice harem series. Nope. Much deeper than that. Loving what I am seeing so far.

Bonus points for blowing into the cartridge, Brooke. I can already tell you will be a fine gamer.

This show is surprising me again. Instead of a moe-crazed otaku constantly faceplanting into cleavage and walking through bathroom doors unannounced, we are getting an intelligent, culturally sensitive amateur language teacher who is very likely to get himself into trouble with some of his ideas. ... Eager to see more of this!


This x10

Agreed entirely. I was very surprised how heady this got given it's setting, content and even comedy tone. I was surprised to see him about to lose his marbles. I half expected him to slap the princess (I would have ). And remarkably astute in understanding that he is dealing with an illiterate and just about slave society. I'm quite surprised and very happy. Definitely keeping this one on my queue.

I like the way this is going, but not enough to keep it. I'm putting this on hold until I see about dropping some other shows to make room.

Episode 2 picked up a little bit for me. I was about to drop it since last episode didn't impress me, but I did enjoy this episode made me laugh in some places.

I wasn't sure if I was going to continue with this series. But episode 2 ensured that I will indeed drop this anime...... AFTER IT FINISHES. MUHAHAHA.

All I have to say is shit got real in episode 3. I'll post full thoughts tomorrow after CR's stream debut which for some reason delayed out of most of the Thursday airing series.
