World War II setting AND supernatural elements? Sold!

This was one of the shows I was looking forward to and I think it's off to a great start. It already has a familiar setting, so there is no need to go super overboard with world building. They gave just enough information to keep us watching and want to learn more about the characters.

Her "broom" looks an awful lot like a Simonov PTRS-41.

So not exactly alternate history, but more like history wearing a rubber nose and bushy eyebrows, hoping you don't notice.

Good art, lots of attention to detail. I'll try to stick with it.

To the point that every weapon and vehicle shown, from the Walther P38s at the start to the SM.79 Sparviero they were flying in at the end, were faithful representations of their historical counterparts. It was a big game of "name the thing" for WW2 buffs.

Ep 1

Great designs, crisp visuals, interesting characters and an amazing soundtrack. I'm definitely on board with this one. I'm already interested in Fine and Izetta's past seeing as she has a clear devotion to the princess. The WWII elements worked well too. Can't wait for more.

All hail Britanni- I mean... Heil Hitler! No, wait. That's not right either... Oh well. Close enough.

Pretty strong first episode. The animation was beautiful. That OST was amazing. This looks like it could be a really great mix between magic and WWII.

Bonus points for riding a gun instead of a broom.

The writer doesn't have the best resumé, but the premise introduced is pretty promising and this first episode was well constructed. Reminds me a bit of Valkyrie Chronicles.

At best, it might very well turn out to be Junketsu no Maria, but set during WW2 instead of the 100 year war.

First ep. Was off to a really good start. Like the princess already. Here's hoping the quality keeps up. The tech and uniform spotting was fun for history buffs. Like the gorgets the 'chain dogs' ( military police ) were wearing.

Am I the only one who thought the train scene was 100% Final Fantasy 7 there?
