Great show. Loved the first episode. Thought the Anime Strike subs were fine.

This show has me hooked. Love the art but espeically love the local. Im a sucker for swords and sorcery. Enjoyed the comraderi between the two but it seemd to form a little quick. I wonder if there is more to it in the source material.

The first episode felt pretty mediocre to me. I will give the show a shot, but I'm not sure how it will end up.

Boy lots of magic shows this season, at least this one's take of Moe magic beauty and the beast is different. I liked it, both MC's were fun.

Really enjoyable first episode, and I can easily see myself sticking with this for the season. Fun characters and interesting setting that's both familiar but a little unique as well. Very solid stuff in a pretty weak season.

Episode 2

Albus joins party, and Zero had to lie in order to prevent him from freaking out. Albus finds a ring, and it happens to belong to an old lady in the village. But from that encounter things get ugly as Albus is accused of stealing the ring, and those villagers are out to hunt witches. Sorena is one such witch who was burned at stake even though she actually helped lift the plague. But while the villagers are on the attack, the old lady helps them out as she's a witch herself who knows Sorena very well. This world sure is messed up.

Episode 2

Haha, Mercenery got called gramps by that Albus kid. Funny.

It's too bad witches are treated like monsters (like Sorena) during the past and probably still in the present. The misunderstandings are unreal....

Seriously though, they need to fix their world. On the other hand, I continuously find the character chemistry between Zero and Mercenery to be cute with their little moments.

I can't help but feel like this series is starting to show some of its more light novel-y qualities with this episode. Still a pretty comfy show, regardless. Let's hope the central plot starts picking up by next week.

Pacing is good definitely going to unfold the story slowly with flashbacks on the way

The skyrim quote was amazing. I had to rewind so i could hear it again just to make sure it was what he said

might just be me, but they almost have a small hint of a Holo and Lawrence vibe going on at times.

"Arrow to the knee" in 2017, really? Is that real translation.

It's real. The Japanese means the same thing as the translations and the Japanese people understood the Skyrim reference too> http://anicobin.ldblog.jp/archives/51096684.html

You can see how in the 2nd link, it reads Skyrim in clear English and there's the mentioned line 膝に矢を受けてしまってな from the JP version of the game. Now copy+paste that into the Ctrl+F function for the first link's page. It's an exact match to the taking an arrow to the knee line. Is it a coincidence? I think not.

膝に矢を受けてしまってな=hiza ni ya wo ukete shimatte na=Then I took an arrow to the knee
You can hear this in the ep
