Main character is, unsurprisingly, annoying. Hope there's a slice of humble pie for him soon. If anything, the Mayan reminiscent world is the most appealing thing so far.

Solid First Episode, probably the best I've seen so far this season

That was better than I was expecting. Digging the Aztec setting. The city is even on a lake.
Though I wish the princess had a more Aztec inspired outfit. Had no idea she was from an Aztec inspired culture from looking at her.

This easily has had the best opening episode out of anything I've watched for this season. I loved the animation, I liked the shots they decided to do with the animation, and I just dig the whole feel of the setting and civilization that was presented here. I enjoyed being introduced to the two main characters this episode, but I hope to be introduced to the rest of the cast as soon as possible. I am really looking forward to the guy in black. His design is wonderful! I'm looking forward to the following episodes and hope the series can keep this tone and pace til the end! 4/5 for me.

I wasn't really expecting much, so the fact that it's actually really good so far is pleasantly surprising. The characters and premise are interesting so far, but the Mesoamerican inspired setting is really what grabs me. I love that aesthetic, and it's hard to find fiction of any sort, let alone anime, that uses it. The fight scene was really cool, and the montage of the MC in his cell was well-done. Add in attractive and effective color palette and designs, with some solid animation, and this has the potential to be one of the best of the season. Nice!

Well this was a pleasent suprise for the first episode. I'm already digging the setting and world layout they have going on already and the great art and animation helps that too. The fight scene in the beginning was also suprisingly really well done and exciting to watch. Also love the two Braves we have met so far and there interactions are perfect. Solid premiere and a lot better than I was expecting.

That was beautiful! It brought a tear to my eye. Now that is how you do a first episode. I am officially hyped.

I especially loved the action scenes and how the main character fought. We got ourselves a crafty rogue here. No OP main character who just bashes heads in with a sword. This guy uses ingenuity.

I am in love.

His design reminds me of:

Kinda funny how the six flowers crest is on MCs hand but of course the princess right in the cleavage shot

Loved it!
I didn't like Adlet at first but he seems like a cool guy. I hope he has good character development.
My favorite part was the city and how they based it on the ancient Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan.

ep 1

Whoa, I'm liking the environment.The animation is quite beautiful, the OP and ED as well. I have a strong feeling this is going to end up being a gem of this season. Also, I think Adelt is going to make a fine MC. And Nashetania, well, she has bunny ears, need I say more? Looking forward to the other braves.

That was a fun first episode. That 3 way battle was pretty awesome and I'm already a fan of the princess. Looking forward to more.

Ep 1

So much freaking yes!! i did not expect something to tie so easily with Gangsta (and even slightly over pass it) with its opening episode but Rokka did just that. The animation and art are top notch (way to go Passione, you guys have some talent) , the lore tease is amazing, the setting even more so. The OST is clearly fantastic, and a fan of the OP, which is now tied with Gangsta's OP as a fav of mine this season for now. There were quite a few shows I loved in spring, but summer is making me quite happy with its start to fill its void. It might be due to limiting the shows I watch this season, but from this limited list, almost every thing has been super entertaining with their opener, the new shows and the returning sequels.

Looking forward to more Rokka!

The fight scene at the beginning was impressive. I like creatively choreographed fights. The rest of the episode though... meh. a 15 minute monologue about the background is not good story-telling.

I might check out the 2nd episode to see if it gets better. I'm guessing they'll give an inadequate explanation as to why the princess has bunny ears.

I was thinking same thing would of been cool if MC asked her right away ( sup with ears) he was so crass and arrogant any ways would of been perfect
