Episode 2

It begins with the bath scene as Loki is quite the pervert, and Lefiya is fantasizing of going yuri with Aiz. In the meantime, Aiz is using a different sword while her usual one is getting repaired. And then comes the part where Bete indirectly insults Bell that causes him to run away without paying his bill. Pretty much, this is all silliness as the members of the Loki Familia sure have crazy minds, none more than Lefiya. While this show is nowhere near as good as the regular series, it's still fun to watch.

Episode 2

The OP song for this show works although I think there's some moments that were awkward in it as well.

Compared to the original series, this has a lot more fan service still. Not much action this episode so I guess the show is trying to flesh out its characters more. Bete is still an ass as expected.

I still don't find Lefiya appealing in this show though especially with her fangirl delusions.

Overall episode was okay imo, not as distinctive as the first but works as it tells the story from Aiz's perspective. The timeline takes place pretty much the same as original.

I thought it was interesting how bete felt shame for doing the things he did at the dinner while apparently blackout drunk (since he couldn't remember anything that happened and had to be told what he did). That shows a different side to his character than the always cocky, arrogant fighter, apparent rival to MC archetype. Also this series keeps flashing to more shadowy figures lurking about, and is trying to introduce another villain that wasn't in the main story, which I'm not sure will play out well.

"While this show is nowhere near as good as the regular series, it's still fun to watch. "

first 2 episodes of the normal series were nothign special either so im going to reserve my judgement a bit. So far enjoying it and more lore/backstory to the characters/world itself. Would like to see more of other gods myself but then that might diluted the character pool more.

This series will be good to find out HER reason for needing to become strong. They made refrence to her obsessive need in this episode. Something im confused about. Bell's stats were all S and SS. When you lvl up do they reset or is he capped? Because then no matter lvl he should be better then Aiz.

I kind of wanted them to continue with the story. If it gets a third season and the series keeps going I can suffer through but if this is it I will be pissed!

So... when exactly is blonde elf girl supposed to get pushed off a cliff and make Aiz the main character?

Not that I hate her. It's just that she adds nothing in a story that is apparently supposed to be from Aiz' perspective. It doesn't seem like much happened this episode other than Lefiya trying to cheer Aiz up and a few Bell and Hestia cameos. It was funny seeing Aiz in Hestia's clothes though.

it's not a 2nd season, it's a spinoff following different characters in the same universe. there are parallel events and some crossover/cameo parts, but it's not a continuation of the story of the previous anime at all.

The elf-girl protag really doesn't help this series feeling like pure fan-service. Doubly doesn't help out that she's constantly in the company of more interesting characters, the amazon sisters in particular.

I thought this during the premiere but what if they pull a bait and switch of Fate S/N level proportions; making the MC not the person we were all expecting and wanted and instead some other scrub. I mean I can see Aiz drawing the parallels between Lefiya and Bell already, if Lefiya is holding actual death flags and not just red herrings IDK MAN.

Goddess Loki, thank you for the Aiz fanservice

Twintails was a nice look.

I was looking forward to this. The original was one of those animes that I liked despite the bits of fanservice because it was so much fun. This though seems more a vehicle FOR fanservice. By the second episode I'm plain disappointed. This isn't even a spin-off. A spin-off is a new and ORIGINAL side story (though it may refer to events from previous stories) set in the same story universe, that are not part of the main storyline. Not just a retelling of a story from another POV (with a new character added). I'm not even sure what I'd call this, since it really is "Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon Take 2" the full fanservice version. I wish they had just continued with Bell's story and not wasted their time on this.

^^^^^^^^^ thirded this is sooooo boring, it's just lame fanservice, I got to imagine there's fan fiction better than this. And didn't think I could find Ais any less interesting but this show is doing it.

I saw someone on another site post these 6 pages in the manga that give us a far better look into Aiz' head than the entirety of the first 2 episodes combined. We could actually see what Aiz was thinking during the bar scene instead of just seeing the exact same expression from her we saw in the original series.
