Plot Summary


It is June of the year CE 1923. A young girl with blond hair and blue eyes, Tanya Degurechaff, has entered the final curriculum of the Imperial Military Academy and is training at the third patrol line in the northern military district, the Norden Theater, as part of her service to the force. Her training, the first step toward a brilliant career as an aviation mage, should have gone off without a hitch... but things took an unexpected turn. War broke out between the Empire and the neighboring Federation committed a border transgression in entering the Empire. During the transition into wartime, she was assigned to observation duty, but a surprise attack by the Federation forces Tanya to engage in battle with the Federation's mage troops. She's greatly outnumbered with no chance of waiting for allies to arrive, but if she tries to flee, she'll be charged with the capital crime of deserting under enemy fire. In order to survive and convince the top brass that she did the best she possibly could, Tanya enacts a certain strategy...

I am going to go ahead and admit that seeing the new title confused me at first. "Isn't this Youjo Senki?" And yes, yes, it is.

Yeah, it's the English title of it. Probably more recognizable for CR and new general audience.

Here's to hoping for more than another slightly edgy but bland LN adaptation.

Episode 1 is now on CR: http://www.crunchyroll.com/saga-of-tanya-the-evil/episode-1-the-devil-of-the-rhine-727459

Episode 1

And it begins right in the middle of a battle with Tanya showing those enemies not to mess with her. I see this as a spiritual successor to Izetta, except that the story is told from the enemy's side as it is about the Germans spreading their terror rather than the Allies trying to stop it in a WWII-esque setting. Anyway, that was quite a spell there by Tanya as she's such a powerful and terrifying magician. Tanya and Visha sure do get along seeing that those girls looks out of place being with an an army full of grown men. So far, not much has been given out as it was mostly about that battle, all while there's a war going on.

Episode 1

That was pretty entertaining, they fit in as much as possible (without either theme songs) so far. It'll take me a little to get used with the character designs though but I think the action was worth watching.

I really like the thrilling music they used during the fights as well. Tanya's personality is pretty much how I had expected as well. Described as a "monster", I'm liking this so far. A pretty serious show without much comedy but instead shows how war is like in this story.

Damn. This show not going to hold back is it? War is defiantly hell.

War broken out and totally not Germany is invading other counties and is not doing so well. We meed one mage Tanya and she a freaking psychopath!

Good impress first eps. Not sure I want to root for her but i'll keep watching.

I expect shojo eyes to die in a few eps.

That was a pleasant surprise. I like how they portray the war (=hell for everyone) and Tanya is an interesting character. It's also nice to see that magic is a part of it from the beginning and something all countries seem to use.
Oh, and the music was good as well.

I've only been reading about it so far but it seems unspectacular but far from ordinary. The idea seems alright, and people have been saying good things about the animtion but the story seems really shallow, and the fact that it doesn't seem to be going anywhere aside from "this lady gets more and more violent" doesn't really make me want to get invested. Also what the hell is with those character designs.

The character designs will take some time to get used to but that animation was great. Tanya is merciless even towards her subordinates.

I was expecting this to be pretty good, and I wasn't disappointed. Tanya is savage, even her bosses are scared of her. I saw the deaths of those two guys coming, she/he didn't seem like the kind of person to just forgive them. The only thing that I really didn't like was the design of the subordinate girl (can't remember her name), but I did like the designs overall (especially Tanya's when she was fighting). It might just be me, but I felt like the subordinate girl just looked a lot different from that rest of the characters and it was kind of off putting for me.

Yeah her My Hero Academia design didn't really fit everyone else's, anyway after slogging through Izetta I could have used a break before another witch in a World War in Europe show but since this seems better so far I'll see where it goes. It's going to be tough taking the Loli MC seriously though.
