Episode 1: Starting Potential

Despite them being literally naked for more than half the episode, the action and battle scenes were actually pretty good. The characters seem fun as well.

World building was quick and to the point, didn't really spend too much time creating the setting. They made it simple and understanding and it carried itself from there.

Beginning scenes were nice and the Senpai vs. Kouhai fight looked good which gives me hope for future battles. Also the character drama has begun as well.

All in all I enjoyed it, Looking forward to the next one

so I just watched the first episode and can say I'm hooked! yeah there is some fanservice/PLOT (with hints of yuri!) but there is an actual plot as well! We meet the team which consists of a angel, a demon, a super-soldier, a android(?) and a young girl with light based powers which are lead and link together by another human girl. Now if one of them gets hurt the leader also takes damage and the link weakens an thus the other girls powers are weaken. the two MCs are having a spat. Amane is a kind leader which is cool but that's the problem for Saya! yeah see Saya kinda messed up a bit in one of their missions
Saya wants to grow and become stronger but with Amane's attitude she feels she won't. I kinda see where Saya is coming from I mean kindness is awesome but so is tough love but I also thinking Saya is being to hard on herself I mean what does she want from Amane? to punch her in the mouth or something? so I like to see some great (if not then good) character development between these two characters where they understand each other and find some middle ground becoming the best of friends (or more) along with the rest of the team!

Best costume designs of the season right here!

Anyway, holy beams of light Batman. If you're going to do an info dump episode, I guess it's best to have it done largely by cute naked bathing girls. It wasn't offensive at all but I don't really care about it all that much either. I'll probably be back next week to see where it goes from here but, even given so much backstory already, I'm just not sure there's an actual story here. Still, a pretty good portion of the cast is likable and it doesn't look bad.

Almaria <3 best girl, that design is fucking god like, so sexy. Easily best looking girl this season right now. Double Fang win.

I watched this due to boredom and will continue at least for a few more episodes even though Saya does grate a bit.

Really boring episode tbh. I watched it and thought the only decent part is the world building with the info dump.

Almost half the episode considered of bath fan service (censored as well). There's a variety of characters so I guess that's something but really not impressed. Character designs looks alright I guess but very generic still.

Super boring. I don't mind long bathing girls scenes, but for me they really do not make infodumps more tolerable. I managed to watch it all the way through somehow, but not without frequent pauses to do other things. I'll try to watch in a less distracted way next time (if there is a next time), but right now this is on the "likely to drop" list.

Did the girls need to be naked for most of the episode, for no real reason? I mean, at least hold off on the excessive amounts of cheap fanservice for the first episode.

This may turn out to be a decent watch, but Saya did rub me the wrong way, from the get go, although I do understand where she was coming from. It is also tiring seeing another battle school type of setting, where the students fight generic monsters, who just want to destroy things. Proper, developed villains make things interesting. Monster hordes, with no depth at all, do not. Hell, even if it were a bland as fuck villain, but at least not there just as an excuse to give the heroes something to fight, I'd still take that.

I don't think this will be terrible, I find the team mildly intriguing, but it honestly doesn't look like much.

Episode 1

That was really dull. Info dumping with the girls naked for most of the episode here, followed by action that's just there. The setup is interesting with five worlds on a collision course for destruction, but that sense of urgency didn't really translate over to what's happening on the island. Saya did say that there won't be a next time, so I will check out the next episode at the very least. But it looks like I won't be staying with this show for long.

Wow that was bad. I love ecchi battle animes but that was terrible. I was just talking to my girlfriend about how you can tell a manga adaptation from a light novel adaptation and this hit every point of a bad light novel adaptation. Too many characters, complicated backstories on all of them, lots and lots of random terms, etc. It's this far --> <--- from being a parody of the genre.

I frequently complain about people who give shows one star ratings after a single episode, but I can't see how this is going to get any better.

I'm pretty sure they just re-hashed character designs from No Game No Life, Strike Witches, SAO, and K-ON. I'm not entirely sure what I think about it, I guess I'll watch next week and see if it shows any significant growth.

Not the best way to sell a card game in my opinion. Well not unless you plan on having naked characters printed on the cards. Im ok with fan service but at least make it tasteful and fun or relevant to the story and not over due it.

The premise is ok (If familiar)

but did they really need to spend three quarters of the first episode in the bath?

Largely an Info dump episode with I guess bath time to keep people from falling asleep

Hopefully the next episode is more interesting
