Finally, the plot actually moves but the episode felt slow as hell. An entire episode filled with weird exposition, boring buildup, and weak attempt at characterization. Aoto is one of the worst characters I've seen so far in this series as well. This show is awful lol

And this guy also claims to be a God. Meh.

Episode 6

Pretty much a setup episode we got here.

Looking forward to the divine gate plot they are setting up in this episode. Although, I do have a bad feeling something tragic is going to happen in the gate, but I am awaiting a lot of action, so there's that!

You have a problem with that?

But he's clearly up to something.

Something in me still wants to like this show. It really does have a few pretty cool characters.. but that's kind of it. As runec so eloquently puts it above, it just feels like the show thinks it's building some sort of deep layered mythos but it's just not.

The OP song is still kick ass though.

I couldn't of said it better myself! I'm so sick of the existential monologues, this show tries so hard to be deep that it forgets to be good.

Which ones? Certainly not any of the main three. They're literally angst ridden Planeteers with less subtle character designs. I mean cripes even their names are basically red, blue and green. Well, Aoto's name is even more on the nose seeing as aoto is a type of blue whetstone for sharpening knives ( Cus he uses water knives, get it? >.> ).

And I don't even know where to start on this world and its wife beater + popped collar dress shirt + giant pendant fashion trend thing.

Everyone subscribes to the Squall school of fashion in this universe.

Oh no, definitely not the mains. The secondaries we only really saw once seemed decent and the Knights of the Round seem like they have potential as well. I especially liked the girl who was tricked into wearing the horse head mask. I also thought the animal girl that they killed off in half an episode was cool as well. The mains might as well be called Boring, Annoying and Forgettable.

Episode 6: Where It Began

I'm gonna be honest. I fell asleep during this episode but judging by what everyone else said I probably didn't miss anything important. What I did get from it is that they are finally going to attack the gate.

Also there was some back story on Arthur and Loki. But still the episode was slow and I didn't feel the need to go back and re watch it. I got the jist of what was going on.

Here's to hoping there will be some decent action next episode. Also kind of sad the other three (Ginji, Yukari, Hikari) didn't get as much characterizations as the other three. They look more interesting though.

I'm hoping at least some of the Knights bail on the king once they find out he's doing this all for Santa Claus. >.>

At this rate, they won't reach the gate until the final episode...

Definitely my least favorite show of this season that I'm currently watching. I'm honestly still a little confused what is going on even. I understand the divine gate grants a wish but how do they exactly reach it or get there. What's the deal with those two gods or whatever? The one seems up to something..I think? Lol. I'm gonna see it through to the end but so far it's not that great.

I watch it for filler, too.

The art work is dirty. The relationships between things are dirty. By dirty I meant not clean cut. Just "there".


Its filler to relax to. It would be more interesting if the characters were at least interesting, but they are pretty 2D.

The only savior of this show is how the gate and the 3 worlds relate, but I don't know if people are that patient considering how sloppy its coming together.
