And it's up and on time. I have been quite excited for this show. Time to go watch the Brave of the "Six" Flowers in action.

Episode 1

Adlet is promoting himself to be the strongest man in the world, and to back up his talk, he takes on an army and two juggernauts, and has no problem taking them down. But that gets him into some hot water as he gets thrown in jail where he trains hard to get stronger, and then eventually he gets chosen to be one of the six braves to fight off that demon lord whose revival is coming. That's a pretty solid start there and while Adlet comes across as being an egomaniac, he soon learns his lesson in humility that hopefully he takes note of moving forward. So far, I'm liking it.

That was a pretty faithful adaptation. They only adapted like 40 pages of the first volume I think. I'm glad they kept the world-building exposition stuff because those are pretty important to the story. Most light novel adaptations tend to cut out exposition and world-building stuff.

Great first episode

Episode 1: The Strongest Man In The World

Pretty nice introductory episode. Jumping straight into the action with our MC ruining a tournament. The choreography and animation for the fight were nice so I am looking forward to seeing how the rest will fair. He used cheap tricks though, I wanted to see some one on one action but it was still enjoyable

They implemented the backstory really nicely. The concept of the demon lord and the six flowers and how it all started. It was a nice info dump. They really set the setting for this and gives us a glimpse of what to expect

Not a bad first episode, with an interesting concept to keep me coming back for more. And with two known people with the crest for the six flowers we journey to go meet the rest of the squad.

Episode 1


Adelt is awesome. He is the type of character that is unpredictable and I want to see what else he will do throughout this story based on adaptation standards.

It's a 1 cour show but so far, it captured the way I had envisioned by character designs, the world fiction, and fantasy elements. I'm surprised somewhat that the pacing is a bit slow but I think it will pick up soon from here (unless it's split cour which I doubt). Good start though. Animation quality is even impressive imo despite the studio.

Quite an interesting starting episode. Visually appealing, nice style that stands out easily. Good animation to. That opening fight scene. Great stuff.

Exposition was handled alright as well, not too heavy info dumping and was done alright. Demon king coming, six chosen heroes. Nothing too particularly new there.

What does stand out of course is our main hero Adelt. The strongest man in the world. Though his strength is not physical but in tactics it seems. Capable of pulling off a lot of tricks. sadly his tactical acumen sadly has left bereft of wisdom or strategic thinking and after spectacularly breaking up a tournament and beating up two skilled warriors he gets thrown into a pit and a long time passes until the princess and sword saint (with magical powers) comes to pick him up. And off they go to the west, though first stopping by his secret hideout. Most likely for more gear.

He studied hard to get where he is though, suffering greatly. Curious to know what spurred him on though, and what the thinking of his master was behind the training.

The conversation with the princess was also interesting, Mostly exposition, but it did teach us a bit about her.

And she seems like an interesting character as well. So should be fun.

As for his mark. I dunno, that whole tentacles appearing on him during the night thing might lead me to believe that his mark has perhaps been tampered with. or manufactured.

We also learn that potential braves have been dealt with by fiends before the choosing of heroes.

Also. I really like the music, reminds me of Zetsuen no tempest. Of which i really liked the music as well. So should be an interesting ride.

I find Nashetania very cute. Adel is like one of those cocky guys but he's cocky all the time.

It was a really good first episode - the fighting animation was great, and the exposition did not put me off one bit. I can't quite place how they did it, but I enjoyed every minute of it. I feel that this will be one of the top shows this season.

I don't know how long Adelt was imprisoned for, but it seem like an age! His character is very upbeat and he is a tactical fighter, perhaps due to overcoming his harsh upbringing.
His "marking" process looked really suspect, and it would make an interesting twist if he was the anomaly.

Look forward to the inevitable suspicion game each week.

And...it seems I've found my next blonde sword princess, with additional bunny ears, and playful nature

The way you make it sound with the slow pacing it should've been two cour instead of one it's sad it isn't 2 cour. Maybe if it does good we'll have a season 2.

It's somewhat slow pace for now but I'm sure it will pick up soon. I think the first episode is trying to get across the premise to the audience. Imo, it should be a split cour.

Who knows? If it gets good ratings we could get another season it seems pretty good heres hoping. I just hope they try their best not to rush the adaption later on we don't want another Brynhildr in the Darkness happening

I'm already sick of the MC saying he's the strongest man in the world. He needs to be humbled soon so we can see some character development.

It has a lot of nice elements to it but I'm not sold yet. Just needs a little more oomph- hoping that will come by episode 2-3.
