Episode 1

Maria may be an enemy of the Church, but she has made friends of the villagers. She wants to singlehandedly put a stop to this war, and she has a dragon that can do it for her. That was a pretty nice start to this show and certainly the artwork by IG is great as usual. Anyway, I'll watch a little bit more of this for the time being to see if this show can keep things up.

Good start. Maria is hot, cute and funny. Enough to keep watching it until the end.

Episode 1
"Rub them." A succubus doing this I wonder what she was doing ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Her jaws were killing her as well ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Really like the characters Joseph,Garfa & Annie's father.But especially like Maria,(she's so damn cute,getting flustered over a kiss on the hand and stopping a war because of it).

Also really like the fantasy aspect & setting of this,glad I picked this show on a whim,hope this ends up being 2 cour.

Pretty alright, I see this going up in rating, but for now Fine atm. Funny enough Maria is EXACTLY what I expected with the little PV I saw, from dialogue to mannerism, everything spot on, could be a good or bad thing only time will tell.

That whole part with Maria being so confused on why the succubus jaw hurt was funny as hell.... lol

This seasons batch of shows as a whole I think are going to be awesome! My queue list is huge this season, can't wait!!!!

A solid first episode
I'm Catholic so it was interesting to watch how they portrayed Catholicism.
This is the shell of Saint James. His shrine in Spain was very popular during the Middle Ages and many people would take these shells as souvenirs.

Nice reference to Joan of Arc. The poor woman was killed by English bishops but was later declared innocent of all crimes.

I liked this one quite a bit.

I'm guessing there'll be more plot than "Witch-chan hits puberty", but I enjoyed what I got.

Think the first episode was there to establish characters and settings and the like. I suspect next episode will kick the plot off properly.

Ah, it looks like it'll be good, but I just don't do religious humor. Or not like this at least. Pass.

Unless someone can tell me why this won't offend my Christian sensibilities lol


Depends on your sensibilities. Each person has their own limits

Did you watch the one with Jesus and Buddha as roommates?

Yea, I don't quite get the Japanese fixation with supernatural role reversals. Demons / witches being good and angels bad (or hell vs heaven etc). At first I was fine with it because the premise seemed like a novelty, but the prevalence of these types of shows is starting to wear on me and makes me question why the set up is so common to begin with.

But I suppose it sounds interesting enough to warrant a look. I mean, if I watched all of Makai Ouji then I suppose I can at least give this a shot lol.


*shrugs*

The imagery is more interesting in the evil half of the christian dichotomy. And as they kinda touched upon in When Supernatural Battle Became Commonplace, the concept of having a DIRE CURSE, or being EVILLL!!!!111oneeleventyone!!!! is more appealing and intinimdating to anime's current target audience.

It was a bit different in the past, and I'm sure the animosity towards christianity (and western things) was more earnest.

Episode 2

So what Maria is doing actually disrupts order and the archangel Michael is letting her know. And Maria now has another servant owl, who is the incubus Priapus, and there's someone who is homosexual out there trying to take advantage of Priapus. The first half was pretty meh, but the second half has an interesting development with Michael letting Maria know that she can't stop all wars being just one person and that what she is doing is a disruption of order. Anyway, I'll give this another episode to see what becomes of this.
