Hmm. Sounds like it might not be so rushed through ?


Actually, nvm I'm not entirely sure about the 2 cour thing. It's more of a rumor.
Anyways, here's more info on the Fall series: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-07-19/the-asterisk-war-anime-2nd-promo-video-reveals-cast/.90640

And let the wars begin.

Episode 1

It begins with a girl getting her ass kicked in battle, then the powers are explained, and the MC being an pervert by accident. And for being a pervert, Ayato is challenged to a duel by Julis. Ayato puts on a show, but the duel is interrupted by Claudia as Ayato isn't officially a student. As for why Ayato came to the school, he is trying to figure out the whereabouts regarding his sister, whose profile is scrambled. It turns out that Julis is a princess and a prodigy, and Lester, who got his ass kicked by Julis three times already, is picking a fight with her. Well, that was a nice visual spectacle there, especially with the battle scenes. At the same time, I felt that it drops the ball with the whole pervert crap and tsundere reaction. Nevertheless, I'm in it for the long haul as this is one of the most anticipated shows of this season and the spring.

Episode 1

Claudia~



Uh, this was pretty generic although I will admit that both the music and action was decent. We get some exposition in this episode with the info dump. Expecting to see a lot more duels and probably between schools from now on. And oh yeah, this is supposed to be like 24 episodes so pacing will be slowwww

Is it gonna be 24 episodes split into 2 cours or will it just run the 24 episodes straight through until its finished?

It seemed generic, but it had some lovely visuals, some nice action and a fair bit of fanservice too, which I don't see being toned down any time soon

I initially thought it was good that Julis didn't freak out over Ayato seeing her half-dressed, but nope, Ayato must pay with his life

If Ogre Luxes are extremely powerful weapons, I hope they explain why they aren't all loaned out already; their school has been losing in the Festas lately.

And with a name like Lester MacPhail, I can't help but laugh.

ep 1

If the action is anything like it is in the OP, this might be a good watch.

ep 1

meh

its like an amalgamation of every light novel adaptation from the past 5-10 years

I mean, usually I can stand the tropiness these shows have but for some reason the way this show went about them irked me

list of a few tropes I can remember: meeting 'main' girl while she's naked/almost naked, the girl who remembers the guy but he doesn't, the male friend who will in some way have access to info about the other characters, every fall has an 80% chance of leading to a grope, MC almost always has sword skills, big bad dude will probably become a future ally

I know most of these things aren't avoidable but damn man lol

It seems a lot like MakenKe, but there seems to be a good back story involved that will pull it along

Eh.. enjoyable but nothing really new or interesting that hasn't been done many many times before. I'll probably check in again for another episode or two but I don't know if I'll be on board for the long run. It's not even really that special to look at. Kind of disappointing given the sort of push it's been getting.

On the fan service side, it's nice to see some attention paid to the rear end of things though. Don't see that often enough in anime.

Oh, the ED song was pretty cool though.

Pretty much mirroring what others have already said.

Nothing really caught my interest in the first episode. Can't watch these "pervert - grope - kill" first meetings without facepalming... <.<
Probably going to watch a few episodes and then drop it due to sheer uninterest like has happened with others like it.
