Well that was a solid first episode! My favorite of the season so far, though I haven't gotten around to Gangsta yet so that could change soon.

Loving the lore and setting especially. Already can't wait for next week!

A good first episode. Appreciated how they explained the Brave Six properly right from the beginning, rather then dragging it out. Not much of a fan of the MC, hoping the other Brave's will be more interesting.

I love the main character. He sort of reminds me of the co-MC from Rage of Bahamut, I think it was. Hope he has better fighting moves than what we've seen so far though, traps and tricks will get old quick.

I like the theme so far with the Mayan/Aztec mixed with fantasy.

Bunny Princess for the win . Glad to see the MC has confidence coming out the wazoo. Makes me wonder how strong he is compared to the other Flowers.

For this to be a good anime it needs to have better pacing.

I've really liked the visuals in this ever since I saw the first picture and this episode didn't disappoint. I'll definitely watch it if just for that.

Episode 2

Nashetania may be a princess, but that's meaningless now that her family was killed in a civil war. She puts her sword skills on full display there cutting up those veggies with such precision. So after ten days traveling together, they engage in their first battle together against the fiends to protect the villagers. But with only two of them, they can't save everybody, so instead they figure that they just slay the demon lord and all will be good. And then Adlet runs into Fremy who is another brave, but one who kills braves. So this episode was mostly about Nashetania, all while setting up Fremy to be some mysterious character who isn't exactly the prototypical brave. That was some nice development there to set the stage for big things to go down and discord amongst the braves.

Dude, the scenery in this show is awesome. I love how they show all the various landscapes. The prairie with pools and the terraced mountain side were some of my favorite.
And that scene with the smoke and pieces of ash floating in the air at the village was something out of a movie.

Princess apparently doesn't understand how money works.
Sort of sad about her background. Pretty harsh to have your dad order you killed during the middle of a civil war.

Sniper lady saved the dogs. Way to go sniper lady.

Well we got a bit of development for Nashetania. Family killed in the civil war, far rendered a figurehead.. He also tried to have her executed. Clearly not the most functional of families. And with an opportunity to let loose we do see that she can get rather careless having Adlet taking care of things for her and ensuring they don't cause troubles with the locals. She's a trickster when she wants to be.

Apparently saints are all women too. Good to know i suppose.

The fighting was decent, quick and swiftly over with a lot of fiends dead in numerous ways. saving a whole bunch of refugees in the process.

Though Adlet is not the type to rest and quickly pushes on towards a village having heard a girl remained. Leaving Nashetania behind who for all her levity and trickery is also rather focused on the goal and willing to sacrifice people to achieve it if she deems necessary.

Village has miss speedraw. A misanthropic girl in skimpy clothing with a breechloading musket and the magical ability to create paper rounds. She likes dogs though. Adlets first encounter with her does not go too well. Wonder if and how he'll win her over. He seems a bit taken in by her.

As that happens we get.. Godaf ? Joining up with nashetania. The ever loyal servant (appearance-wise anyways) joins up. Fails to satisfy Nashetania's desire for equality. Oh and turns out speedraw is apparently a killer of braves.

The whole brave killing being a bit of a topic throughout the episode and looks like the next one will be more about said paranoia gripping the braves as apparently one brave is it. Some say it is speedraw. Guessing she has another opinion since the world's strongest man has yet to inheret the title world's deadest man.

Edit: Also. Very lovely scenery. Wish we could have more of that.

What makes a person a saint in this show? Is It just pure skill or a some sort of revelation by their god?

Gorgeous scenery. Had a chuckle at the bunny princess enjoying a carrot, and the sudden Adlet face - that was a great touch to the typical joke.

More background to Nashetania, which inspires sympathy, but I am still keeping an open mind about each of the braves - those current and yet to come.

Had our first look at the fiends, and was pleased to see Adlet re-using his trickery to combat the fiends. He had suspicions that it was possibly a trap to draw out braves, so I have to commend his master for being so thorough with his training.

And at last, we see 2 more braves: Goldof Auora and Fremy Speeddraw (<- creative). Both have awesome designs and presence.

I liked how Fremy was using her covered eye to aim...
As to her agenda, I think she's bait for finger pointing. My speculation would be that someone out there is imitating braves and has declared their intentions (or crime pattern) of hunting other braves, which would support why she said "That is why I ask".

I dunno. Gonna be a negative nelly and take umbrage with the BG music, which is both great and annoying. Great that they're using symphonic music, but it sounds like melodrama from 50s B movies. And the way the fiends heads pop off like corks.

Episode 2


Hmm, so Fremy debuted. We'll probably find out even more about her later besides that reveal at the end.

As far as the episode goes, I thought the action was good. Might take some time to get used to the 3D model figures for the monsters though. And anyways, my favorite part of the episode was probably the chemistry between Adelt and Nashetania.
