I can't say that the show sold me yet, but I am curious on how the story is going to crash and burnplay out. So for now, I'm still watching. I do want to know more about the assassin chick and the undead merchant.

Sounds like a Hetalia fanfic

No one from the main cast died this episode... I guess that's something ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

I was almost expecting a small vampire-like creature to jump out of Lou's coffin. I suppose a bloodthirsty possessed(?) sword is good enough. Lou seems pretty badass. Kind of sucks the episode ended with them meeting the Undead Merchant as I was interested in him since the preview last episode.

It seems all factions/individuals are essentially waiting for the appropriate time to stab another in the back to further agendas.

Still not really enjoying it. It's probably at the bottom of my list for the 15 or so shows I'm currently watching this season. I guess it beats Bikini Warriors, but that's not exactly something to celebrate .

Episode 3

So for a change, nobody from the main cast dies as it's all about going around on a journey to seek out some undead merchant in enemy territory all while Lou gets some development. Well, that was rather dull and boring and at least when there was fighting, there was something that stood out. Not so much with this episode. Anyway, this show has fallen out of favor and I that will be it for me with it.

Episode 2. Starting to get more of a feel for this. There are odd cultural subtexts in here, like how Kouran is Totally Not China, Guys! ™ And how the Bounded Ones are essentially burakumin (the Japanese "untouchable" caste).

Just watched all three episodes in a row, and I have to say I absolutely enjoyed everything I saw. The story itself is full of not only political intrigue but also personal drama as well, not to mention I always appreciate a show that's not afraid to kill people off. Moving on to the main characters, I feel so bad for Ibuki knowing that every time he has to use his powers someone close to him will die no matter what. Of the other characters I like Eiha and Swallow, mainly for Swallow's fun and relaxed attitude and Eiha just seems pretty cool being able to ride the beast creature.

I'm definitely going to keep watching this, and I eagerly anticipate the next episode with the undead merchant, who looks very cool in my opinion.

Episode 4


Heh so this girl has a grudge against Kaguraba...because of an argument related to gunpowder and shit in the past. Funny.

What got serious this episode is that Ibuki is once again tested when Eiha almost risked her life.
Well no one died this episode but I wouldn't be too surprised if the body counts pile up again soon.

Well. We got the undead merchant man. Seemingly amoral and willing to do whatever turns him a big fat profit and a schemer.

In this case kill the general or get her to accept the letter is real after she believes she blew his head off.l Ibuki's ethics were tested. But i dunno. Can't say it felt very interesting. Since it was pretty much the bleedin' obvious.

The World building continues to be odd. They have rifles. Swords, magic and erm.. steam tanks which seem to be based on the Renault Ft-18

Also some stuff about a previous expeidition which failed.. and which was led by a bound one. despite them being generally reviled and looked down on. Internal consistency does not seem to be strong here.

Guess we'll see what comes next.

Actually, the bound one thing isn't an inconsistency. The fact that Eiha was allowed to accompany Fubuki on the mission instead of any other rebels indicates a fairly high standing in the hierarchy. Just like in real life, discriminatory thought is something that varies between people and governments, so it really isn't surprising that the rebels were willing to accommodate them while the invaders and commoners were prejudiced.

Or you know a potent weapon that was figured easy to control. If you haven't noticed it doesn't really seem like *anyone* has a high opinon of Fubuki. he is just a pawn to be moved on the table. Her attitude clearly shows that she isn't exactly something that is highly regarded as anything besides a tool. That's supposed to be the thing between them. That he actually treats her like a person and not a thing.

She is a part of the old empire. So is the rebel army. They're not going to magically change just because they slapped on a "rebel" on them in terms of attitude. The difference between the rebels and the other two forces is that they actually use the bound ones. Not that they respect them or anything.

So it is very much a case of inconsistency. It's essentially the equivalent of someone putting a toaster in charge of the army. or even more amazingly as we are supposed to accept here. That apparently they're all following him by free will. So that they're willinglly following a toaster into a battle.

Episode 3. Nobody likes a main character who mopes all the time (and wears a big, dumb marshmallow hat). Eykha and Lou are the only characters here who can hold my attention, thus far, possibly their character designs are less shite than the others. Like the new merchant fellow already. Seems like a guy who doesn't give a @#$%. Or does he?

How many people do you know who discriminate against toasters? There's a not-so-fine line between seeing someone as subhuman and as an inanimate object. The Bound Ones being considered expendable is a somewhat different, but very plausible, explanation for this. This also has basis in reality, with the U.S. using all-minority (Black, Asian, Native American, etc.) military companies lead by minority officers in the World Wars, who, predictably, either saw the fiercest fighting of the war or none at all. So, it's a no-brainer that any tactician with a shred of pragmatism would send in troops he/she considers expendable on dangerous missions, such as trying to reason with an insane dragon.

As soon as Ulrika took her cloak off her face all I could hear in Hestia's voice is "Aiz Wallenstein!".

Kind of glad that no one had to die again. It would lose its meaning and purpose if it was a one off every week. That being said I was surprised of how "good" everything turned out. No one from any faction died, the city is safe, and now they get to learn about Red Dragon.

Not too bad I suppose.

It's getting better... So long as they don't kill Eiha (seriously, stop offering sacrificing yourself for him...). I'd like a bit more structure... but yeah. People are gonna die soon... Quick.

After episode 4, we get a good idea of each player's playstyle (on the off chance anyone forgot, this is based on a D&D campaign).

Nasu is a big sticker for stats and takes the game UBER seriously. As a result Swallow, is the most boring character

Narita plays an idealized version of himself and fully endorses the role playing aspect. As a result, Kaguraba is the best character; he has the best personality and helps the plot move forward.

Then Urobochi is an utterly evil troll who griefs the fuck out of everything. While this could make the game fun if you don't wanna play seriously, it hinders the story as you can only wonder why the other characters bother keeping Lou around.

So thanks to this last episode, my view of this show went from ''total mess'' to ''actually interesting''. Hopefully, they're not gonna drop the ball soon.
