The action scenes were great, but the fan service is annoying and incredibly awkward, this show would be so much better without it. I could also do without Touko constantly telling herself and the audience how badass and cool Seigi is, it gets really annoying, and it's even worse considering that he's not nearly as badass as many other characters, and yet people complain that Berserk constantly reminds us of how badass Guts is. Don't get me wrong, Seigi is likeable for sure, but cool? Not so much.

I'm all for action shows so I'll still keep watching this one, as I said the action is really cool, and most of the characters like Seigi and Izzy are very likeable, it's not difficult to have a good time with this, it's really fun to watch. And I'm also really interested to see where the story will go. But the awkward fan service and Touko as a whole makes it difficult to enjoy the show more.

A definite step down from the second episode, but I'm still digging it overall. The character designs are just really cool and there are some definitely likable characters here. Izzy is just plain awesome and Cat is great as well. Too bad Seigi is probably the worst part of the show, though that's not too surprising considering it's a common flaw with so many anime series. I do agree with what others have said about the comedy and fan service feeling really awkward and forced too. Humour and/or fan service can definitely work in a show like this but not when it's this ham-fisted. It's sort of like the bike wash episode of Bakuon but popping up in every episode.

Anyway, Taboo Tattoo is a mixed bag so far but the good parts are still outweighing the bad for me.

Yeah, the comedy of this show is just...oddly timed.

Also, that little girl seems to lack common sense and only follow her Princess' orders. Action even felt meh this episode. I feel like the show took a step backwards. Meanwhile, I guess they are setting up more events for the rest of the season. Also, Izzy's friend is fun to watch and judging by the end of the episode, we'll probably get to see her in action.

Eh. Meh. About the only thing that stood out to me was the background conversation between Fluesy and Tom after the battle. Not a bad series and while normally I'd drop it it keeps me entertained while I exercise.

I had no expectations going into this anime, and I'm being entertained.
I like the fight scenes, they've been pretty well done.
If the fighting was just throwing magic energy around I would have lost interest quickly.

The boob grabbing is pretty juvenile, would prefer more sophisticated stuff like the yuri in the cold open

Also, what was that thing the blonde guy put in in his mouth at the end of the cold open? was it a piece of concrete?

Heh, I liked that too. The cat subtitles were kind of cute.

Dropped...

The powers are interesting and the character designs are cool, but story and character personalities throw me off. Oh, I'll add the poor timing of the comedy and the distasteful fan service..

Episode 3: Misery Love Company

Don't know why people are hating on this show so much. The fanservice isn't even that bad compared to other shows that are more popular in this kind of genre.

The action is great, let the man do grabs Ms. Bluesy Freusy. It adds variety to the basic punches and kicks from varying angles. Still loving the cinematography that they put into the action.

I'm getting used to the comedy much like I did with Bungo Stray Dogs last season. It's starting to slowly mesh a little better in my opinion. Could work on the timing I will agree but still great.

Anyways' looking forward to more. Can't wait to see Red head in action.

Touko is annoying and she is the biggest cliche in the story

The princess is actually super hot.

This show is pretty good so far, solely because of the animation. Couldn't care less about the story.

I get the feeling that Bluesy "Izzy" Fruesy is some kind of refence to a song by the band Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls with the lyric "I seen every blue eyed floozy on the way," or Blu-eys Fluesy if you use Engrish with some phonetics and leet like speek and/or misspelling . But that is just my opinion, the theory isn't rock solid
