Great, we need more stock cliche LN-based anime with ridiculously long, unwieldy titles. Because there aren't nearly enough of them already.

Episode 1

Looks like we have another anime that retells the events leading up to the outcome. I found the first episode a little boring but I did enjoy the music and it got a little better with the comedy in the second half. So far it was a okay start and taking a guess from the title we might expect feels in this series.

Episode 1

Heey, not a bad start at all! This and Grimoire of Zero look like LN adaptations that won't go wrong!

Of course, it is too early to tell for that assumption. Still, what we got was interesting enough of its own. The scenes that felt like a music video accompanied by straight animation was a nice touch that helped me to get invested.

There's also some slight hints on what could potentially happen whether if it becomes serious or not. For now, I'll be waiting to see where this one goes. Oh, and SukaSuka is a long title. Not Suka, but the original one.

I'll just share a couple of (non-spoiler) posts from LN reader Zefyris, one from the expectations thread:


Zefyris- wrote:

I agree that the synopsis has been a problem for a lot of people, not that it's wrong, but because it doesn't take in account the "bias" that people will have when reading it: IE, that many people are used to see battle fantasy harems getting adapted and will confuse the two, despite that synopsis not actually saying anything of the sort.

I posted in various places a complement to get rid of the confusion, as follows:

"No ecchi, no harem, pretty much no action. (Science) fantasy, romance, drama. Most scene happens in an 'orphanage'.
It's a sad but beautiful tale, about the last survivor of humanity, who try to teach to a young other race the importance of their own lives, as well as to teach to others races around that this race has a right to live and be happy, and not just being considered weapon/furniture. Trying to be accepted by them, to give them the will to live, and to teach them how to survive as long as possible their ephemeral lifespan without throwing away their lives. And also waiting for them to return from combat, with the anguish of never seeing some of those young faces ever again.
It's also a strange tale about the end of the "human" world, and the truth behind it."

So as you see, this is actually almost the exact opposite of fantasy battle harems people confused it with.


And one from MAL: https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1527061&show=100#msg50312027


Also, it doesn't feel like a harem. All the leprechauns but 5 are 10 years old or below, and even among the 5 oldest, only one has romantic feelings for the main character. As for the MC himself, he considers every single of them as his children and takes care of them like a father would. It's not something new for him, because he is himself an orphan, and as the oldest orphan in the orphanage he was living in 500 years ago, he was the de-facto "father" of the orphanage (as the owner wasn't especially around to take that role). So he naturally takes back that role 500 years later with a different race. There are no awkward feelings due to him being male and the leprechauns being female at all here.

[In response to presumptive criticism, it is not] "trying to be deep" or "trying to cater to everyone with adding a lot of females". Re-zero is mentioned here, and that's exactly the kind of story that tries to cater to a larger audience that way, so you're correct in pointing out that that exists.

However, you should realize that since there's no harem, no ACTION, and no ecchi, Sukasuka isn't trying to cater to everyone at all (as it pretty much discarded 3 of the genres that would help it sell the most easily, especially to anime fans), so accusing it to have many girls for that purpose doesn't make sense.

So no matter what people think of Re-zero, comparing sukasuka to re-zero is illogical to begin with. Sukasuka has a very small amount of buyers, but pretty much any single of them is praising the story to no end. Re-zero is popular, but has mixed reviews and opinions (just like you, I didn't like re-zero, btw, IIRC I gave the anime a 4 and I don't think I was too harsh at all).

Sukasuka is one of those hidden gems; meanwhile re-zero is a popular title, just like SAO (note before anyone starts jumping around protesting: I'm not saying Re-zero and SAO are similar in CONTENT, but in their status as product and popularity).

And as a matter of fact, all those leprechauns CANNOT be of mixed gender. It's not just that there is an explanation for it not being the case, but more strongly, that if they were, then the whole plot/explanation/world building would be incoherent.

Also, they're young due to a very short life expectancy. Not simply due to dying in battles, but even if they survive, they don't live long.

That was pretty good, better than I thought it would be. The way they combined the music and animation in the first part of this episode really got me hooked.
I also like the characters (so far) and the plot seems interesting.

Personally I liked it. I enjoyed the bitter-sweet mood of it. I can only think it's a good thing that not every fantasy anime has to do the same old things, and some will be different. Doesn't mean that just because an anime is trying to do something different it will be good, or conversely an anime that uses tropes will necessarily be bad, but in a medium which is often faulted for being too predictable, I'm all for creative difference especially when it comes to story. And this I felt was off to good start.

I loved hearing Scarborough Faire in the anime. A great start.

I'm into it. Thoughts and stuff, btw didn't even read the synopsis and haven't read the source so I don't actually know anything.

Oy oy, starting with that scene, those words and that song is completely against the rules, damn it. Is that an attempt to make cry the novel readers in the first 30sec or what~.


Damn, the insert songs are good. So they are using the Scarborough Fair song already, nice.

Gulick the nice guy, I like that character <3.

Panival o/
Hah, everything is written in French in the anime, interesting. There's problem with the spelling/grammar here and there tho :D.

The interaction Naigrat/Wilhelm are nicely done, good job to the seiyuu here.

It's the 4 chibitachi o/. Lol in the anime they're doing it twice? I don't mind at all x).

Compared to the insert song, the ending feels almost disappointing. It's not really, but the direct comparison makes it look almost out of place.
Ah, so the prologue of the novel is put after the ending, all right.


Very nice start of the adaptation overall, 5/5 for me.
you're doing great, Satelight.
