Another action show ruined by cliches and bringing nothing notable to the genre: an overpowered main character, a tsundere, tons of fan service, lack of character development, and a story so linear we already know our OP MC is going to win everything get all the girls and have tons of plot armor along the way. I don't even need a second episode to rate this one.

Episode 1

Not without the infamous tropes/cliches well known through out the genre, it was still a pretty solid start. The animation looked crisp, the art style is nice, and the action was great. I see many yelling out generic, but all I gotta say about that is that they surely haven't watched much from the genre, go check out Diomedea Studio's anime if you want to see generic. Sure it has some elements that have played out a bit, but I don't see it being intolerable here.Either way, I was glad to hear about it having 2 split cours, hope it doesn't disappoint.

Trying to setup an entire world and the rules and systems in it in just 24 minutes is always destined to fail, and this was no excemption.
Hopefully episode two will settle down. Otherwise, typical futuristic school kids battle trope.

So. lets see.

The main character is a cardboard cut out and a sex offender that climbed in a girl's window to "return something" and then groped her the first chance he got. Note that he did not accidentally land with his hand on her breast nor did he push himself up with his hand on her breast. He specifically groped her after the fact while she wasn't looking.

Our female lead is a fire wielding tsundere. Because we've never seen that before. ( Ugh. )

The president is a blonde exhibitionist. Probably has a Childhood Promise(tm) going on that the MC doesn't remember. Will ultimately lose out to the tsudnere despite her undoubtedly spending 95% of the show violently beating the MC and refusing to give him the time of day.

A sidekick / room mate / lone guy friend so generic he's appeared in almost every harem anime since the dawn of time.

A masked villain fired from a low budget Gundam series that actually has emo frowny face scars.

Its also given up all pretense and is literally overlaying the RPG UI on the action for us =p

The most impressive part however is that it took such a massive info dump on our chest and yet didn't actually explain WHY any of this was happening. That's kind of spectacular in its own way as well.

TL;DR: We've already seen this show several times and can probably devise a drinking game for the rest of the series.

Wow talk about generic.

I will watch it because these mindless harems have sort of a euphoric effect on me, but good god this show is like a textbook example of a Sci-fi harem. Sky Wizards was sloppy but it at least had fun with the characters.

Episode 1


Right from the start we see some action already trying to draw in the people which I like. next we are introduce to our MC who happens to pick a handkerchief and returns it to the person it belongs to but it turns into a huge mess because he sees her half naked. the next part is great cause they have a duel and the actions is really good better than i expected. after we meet the president of the school Claudia who informs of how things go and they expect a lot from him. In the end we see the fire princess getting ready to fight someone.

yes this anime has the whole recycle harem stuff but at least it makes up for with the action and some decent fan service. I look forward to more of this.

Only gonna continue watching this for the nice looking fights. If the animation starts to drop in quality I'll probably drop it.

Totes agree.


Reminds me of the need for Season Two of Irregular At Magic High so the One True Tatsuya can curb stomp all the tropes in deliciously no-fucks-given style all over again.

...Yeaaaaaah...barely able to finish that, its not bad fyi (just average setup), hell, its even beautifully animated with decent designs, but I just don't feel like going through many of this "type of show" (or none if possible) this season, hopefully Chivalry of the Failed is a better option to pick up, trying that next. However, Claudia was cool. Julis was ugh.

I see my work was done for me. Generic shit is generic. Damn these European Princesses and their stupid long names from these made up European countries. Every season!
