So Saya reminds me, for some strange reason, of someone with good MMR but below level cap getting match made with a bunch of diamond leaguers in a MOBA. She is completely out of her depth as the first episode showed, the other girls are MUCH stronger than her, and she is disillusioned as hell about being the weak link and is starting to fire off "team sucks!" frustration accusations to compensate.

Fix match maker plox.

This was better, and things are starting to look a little more interesting, but Saya is still a pain in the butt. This is still on its way to being dropped, because it's probably the weakest show of what I've seen so far this season, and it's very mildly entertaining at best. But, since things did improved a little, I'll stick with it for now.

I watch this when I'm tired and can't sleep as so far both episodes have managed to make me feel drowsy.

Episode 3

So not only is Amane trapped, but she's being forcibly turned to the dark side, and that has already happened with some of the top fighters on the island. To keep the worlds from colliding, the girls will have to fight to release energy that slows down the speed of collision, but having girls going dark means there won't be anybody left to create the Extra. Saya goes up against one such fighter in Hinata and while her rank is far above, Saya's determination saves her. Well, at least the story is starting to get better, but seeing that I didn't care much for this show to begin with that I'm finished.

For a series that spent two episodes being a rather bland fanservice show, I thought episode 3 was really really good.

Punctured slightly by the opening fanservice, that was a really emotional and gritty episode, as the girls alpha drivers are trapped in another dimension, and then they discover the president and the senior girls (who trashed them earlier) have all turned to the dark side.

Episode 3

After last weeks episode Saya and her group find Amane in a crystal and try to break her out. Everytime they attack the crystal to free Amane the attack they use would be sent back at them. After being told by there doctor what's going they leave to find their senpai in order to help free the A drive. Once arriving where the upper classmen fought Saya finds Hinata Senpai unconscious but she soon recovers and attacks Saya. It turns out that Hinata is turning to the dark side because of their A drive being turned. Saya fights Hinata and after putting up a fight is able to defeat her but soon Aoi shows up to fight them. lucky for them to high rank class ends show up and Aoi had no choice but to retreat for now. In the the end it's revealed that other girls from other worlds got turned to the dark side so we will see some good battle to come.

Good this is getting better, also mandatory bath scene in the beginning XD

Also I kind of want Saya to raise her sword above her head and gather all the light she can and make it huge and say EXCALIBAAAAAAAAAAA but that's too much to hope for.

Anyways still enjoying the show, action was good and I'm looking forward to more encounters. There was kind of more info dumping but it's nice world building in my opinion

At this point, I think the show can hardly redeem itself. First two episodes introduced the characters and main themes but I can't feel much about them. The first episode really gave me a bad impression for the series as well. The third episode used very generic plot element being the mind control/corruption. Saya's a character I find annoying to watch with her personality.

The only interesting part I find so far is the world building as it actually seems complex and more to be explored. Elsewhere, I can't feel too invested into the series. Action seems decent but not much else for me so far. Just my two cents.

It feels to me like the biggest problem with the show is the totally off base pacing. It keeps trying to push buttons that it hasn't earned the right to push yet. Even something as simple as a fan service heavy episode doesn't really work until you actually have an interest in at least some of the characters, otherwise it's just more nekked anime babes. They did the info dump episode before we were even hooked on what was happening on a micro level. They did the fan service before we cared about the characters. They did the emotional punch before we had become invested in the characters. Etc. I don't know if I'd call out any particular aspect of the series as being blatantly bad. Tropey and generic, sure, but not necessarily bad. It's just that they seem to have no idea how to actually structure and pace a story.

AOTS right here boys.



In all seriousness though, this show is so much better than what people are saying about it. People are writing it off too soon and too quickly.

Agreed. This show has been a pleasant surprise for me. The only real disappointment was when looking at the title I thought it might have been 2nd cour for the Cross Ange series.
