I did a terrible disservice by watching this show right after Symphogear AXZ. Battle Girl is like a bunch of toddlers in comparison. I don't think I'll continue with this series.

Episode 2

So now the girls go off and do some heavy duty training, and celebrate Masaki's arrival. But their party gets interrupted by an invasion of the Irous and they are spring into action. Pretty much, nothing happens except in the last part as it's all about doing the usual girls stuff. I wasn't high on this show to begin with and with the next episode being a beach one that I have no more reason to continue to watch this that's all about advertising and nothing else. And also, those are some of the tackiest magical girl outfits I have ever seen. If they at least lose those transparent shirts, they would look a whole lot better as those just don't go along with the rest of the outfit.

Nice to wake up to episode 2 being out.

Just good dumb fun. Plain and simple.

I just don't think that unless you play the game, you're really going to like this one.

It's more or less seeing our girls coming to life and their hijinx between the times of fighting monsters and enemies that you don't really get in the game.

Plus it's a commercial and introduction to the "new girl"

Even as a fan of the game, this show isn't a priorty for me this season, but I will still watch as I have time.

It's cute enough and serviceable enough for what I like form the characters and the game.

Plus it's nice to see all the girls getting screen time as opposed to just the "main" characters.

Finished watching episode one a little while ago and the only major thing I can say is I wish we got a little more background. I know (now) that this anime is based off a game, but having characters in the show mention what the girls were like 'before' compared to how they are currently doesn't really give me anything to go off of. I don't know, this episode felt like it was more of a 'sequel' than an introductory at some parts. It's not like it was hard to grasp, they have apparently been fighting these enemies for awhile, got strong, and are no getting lax due to overconfidence. However, it still would have been nice to see at least a flash back or more exposition on that for those who haven't played the game. (Does the game even go into that?)

Overall, decent start, yet nothing overly exciting.

I am going to go ahead and guess here, but I am assuming the new girl is

The game goes into it a little bit with side stories and flashbacks.

Also no. The new Character is a new Character. She just came out in the game.

So far the anime is a commercial for her.

I may have to try the game at some point to get a little more info on the series then.

Ah, that is too bad. They looked a lot alike and I thought it would be a fun little twist.

Damn. Just 3rd ep. and already a beach episode... Mind you I'm not complaining too much.

I'm kind of annoyed they just keep shoe-horning characters in to certain scenes, but it is what it is with a cast this big.

I'm not quite sure what they were trying to do overall with this episode. I mean it was fun, but kind of all over the place.

I'm glad that a lot of the girls are getting screen time... even if best girls are limited atm

Overall a mediocre show so far sadly. I was hoping for a lot more being a fan of the game as well as Silver Link, but I am not sure how much of this is Silver Link and how much is COLOPL

Don't get me wrong. I am still enjoying it, but there really isn't much here for people who don't like the game or the characters. So far just a standard show. Much sad. Very Disappoint. But, still will watch.

Never played the game, the show is ok despite this - lumbered with too many characters needing screen time but it's not a bad show by any means. I'm trying to get more out of my HiDive account so have given this a go - 3 episodes in I think it could perhaps do with more combat sequences though as I assume the game is about the girls fighting?

Sorry for the late replay. I don't get on CR much anymore.

Yeah the game is primarily about the girls fighting the Irousu. During the game you move your finger in the direction you want to move your chosen fighter/girl around on the screen and depending on the weapon you tap the screen almost like a rhythm game to build up combos and special attacks.

But there's also mini-games and a kind of sim game meta. Like you can actually build/decorate the school you teach them in and their rooms. There's side-quests and story missions for all the girls. You have to raise your intimacy level with them... yeah. you're basically the adult teacher trying to get a bunch of teenage girls to crush on you. You mostly due this via headpats. And the girls have stories and relationships with each other as well.

it's also a gacha game. But it is extremely F2P friendly. I have never spent a dime on it.

I haven't played in a while. Mostly playing GBF, but I still have it installed on my phone. Have best girl Urara and a few of her 4* cards so I am content atm.

I'll get back to the anime eventually. Just not a priority over any other show atm.

Not sure if anyone else here actually watched this to the end. Heh Even if you did, as I did, I'm not really sure there was ever too much to discuss. It progressed and ended pretty much as expected. Not to say it was bad more that it was largely cliche and predictable. I will say that once it went beyond the first handful of episodes and started to focus on the main storyline and a core set of characters it did improve.

Overall, it was a solid if completely unremarkable series. I would recommend it but only to those who were into this sort of typical almost old school magical girl esque anime to begin with. If you want more of that, have at it with guarded expectations. If you don't, don't bother.

As a fan of the game, I dropped it after I think episode 4?

I will eventually go back and re-watch it all, but it wasn't anything more than a marketing thing for not jsut hte game, but the new character. Nothing more.

It's a shame really as I had high hopes. #1 a mobile game I like and #2 one of my favorite anime studios.

It simply fell flat and I was a bit jaded by the lack of screen time by some of the characters. It's tough though with a game/show with this large of a cast.
