Lets get one thing clear there's a need for revenge in this anime!

BTW it was brutal enough with the rights of people being trampled / a hostile takeover/ but then a brutal jailer and that scene was it necessary? You know what they say payback is a ^%&*(

Started watching this and to me the audio sounds off like it's a lower bitrate on the encode. Just doesn't sound as crips/clean/clear as usual, anyone else hear it that way? Started it back up and seems the right audio channel is a bit lower than the left one. Prior shows I watched before this and any other system audio is normal on their output.

Anyways stopped the stream once Momoka was knocked off as all I could think of was she needs a Urara-shield.


Same here one channel and the background music was annoying!

Oh and that long intro song!

K thanks, posted about the episode in the members forum once I finished the episode off instead of updating my initial post about it.

I have absolutely no interest in mecha, but I wanted to at least watch it so I could try to make an informed decision, rather than an ill-formed judgement call based on supposition. But I suspect my disinterest in mecha will outweigh anything else.

And besides, what the flipping kind of plothole is that to open with? She is 16 years old but never ONCE in all those 16 years did she even TRY to USE the Mana herself? I realize she has a maid/bodyguard who is probably with her 24/7, but even even so, it's the basis of the whole show.

First 10 seconds, just straight cheese. You have this cheese song, cheese dragons and fan service in the form of a butt crack. I'll continue.

Ep 1

This was basically me the whole episode



Fuck yo mana superiority doctrine and Norma persecution

Did not care at all what happened to Ange. Hopefully that was the point as she can now finally see how much of a terrible person she was being (as well as everyone else in this damn show). If not, I fear for this show.

Episode 1

She began as the princess, and now she's an outcast all thanks to the truth about her identity being kept a secret and then Julio outing it during the big ritual. That's some interesting development there and now Ange is being beaten to death inside a place that's like Alcatraz. And to think that her biggest worry was about not winning her lacrosse match, she is going through a lot. I'll watch some more of this before deciding whether or not I want to continue with this.

Yeah. I find myself hoping that Ange turns into someone I like, or some likable characters appear in the next couple of episodes. As it is right now, I'm rooting for the invading dragons.

Right now, Ange strikes me as a racist who has just found out her ancestry is not as pure as she thought it was.

I am going off on a tangent and with something technical. Anybody else having problems with the stereo sound for this show? I watch shows in surround, so left and right for stereo audio.

Issue is that the voices only seem to come from the left audio channel, and music etc is proper stereo. Really makes it tough to listen to actually...

The fact that only females can be normas bugs me. If it was a female only thing, it would have to involve the X chromosome and would be an allele that would be fatal if it was the only one present (so no males are born with it because they don't survive to term). There are plenty of real world disorders that are caused by an gene on the X chromosome with varying levels of negative consequences (e.g., color blindness, ALD). But that would mean her mother would have to be a norma as well. I suppose there could be some interaction of genes on different chromosomes that result in it, but then it would be less likely to be female only.
And that's before you even get to the fact that the princess is so lazy/airheaded she didn't notice she couldn't use mana for 16 years.

And why do they try to restrain people resistant to mana with...mana?

The dragons and mechs were cool, but I didn't care for anything else in the show. If you are going to shop from the same clothing stores as Major Kusanagi, you better be her level of awesome. Which no one in this show is.

They've set up a basis for a pretty interesting character arc for Ange; I've been wanting to see a story where the protagonist isn't a blameless, poor little victimized angel for awhile, where they realize they aren't as good a person as they thought they are and they have a chance to take responsibility for their mistakes. The oversaturation of fanservice is unfortunate though, since it could've been a really useful thematic cue in a story dealing with literal dehumanization.

The fanservice by itself is fine if they want to go in that direction, but it could've been used smarter.

Oh well. See where they take it from here.

I for one welcome our new dragon overlords.

Yeah, at first I thought my headphones weren't plugged in all the way and then I realized that it was the video itself.

Thanks to Vaporisor I hear people!!!!!

I was like wtf on my headphones. Plugged them off and on and was like ok. Then, went to another video and was like this works. WTF!!!

Then, I continued to just read subtitles... then I saw Vaporisor's comment and realized in fact voices are coming from the left.

I would have never noticed it since I have no hearing in my left ear. So switched my headphones around for the latter half
