  • Takes some time to like
    This show starts off fast but slow in character development. Honestly after episode 11 things got pretty good and complicated. I enjoy that there isn't episodes of talking and events happen one after the other. Everyone complains its boring/no emotion/ etc. I think the opposite. You get attached to Prscilla, theo, lassic......get sick and annoyed from marinee and various lords. Once the recap ...

  • Too fast paced to meaningfully develop the story.
    So, having watched almost the whole show now I feel comfortable writing a review. Frankly, I think reviews from half a season or less aren't really worth reading.

    This is a bad anime. The underlying source material might be great (haven't read it, but it certainly shows potential) but the execution here is ham-fisted and poorly executed.

    First off is the pacing. This anime blitzes through ...

  • totally under-rated. it’s a solid adventure with excellent tactical strategy!
    this series builds with each episode into an epic tale. i am really impressed with the consistency and quality of the story line. although it seemed to start somewhat light, it steadily takes shape and forms a solid background for all the main characters and their history with each other. personally, i feel this is of a much higher quality than some of the more popular series that have a larger ...

  • A Solid Anime That's underated
    As a veteran of many anime series, I have to say that this series is in the upper echelon of anime. To quickly get to the point, I am surprised to see that this series is receiving less than four stars.

    So far I have reached the 20th episode. There is very little wrong with this series. In comparison to other anime the only real drawback is that it isn't a masterpiece. Honestly, the only thing ...

    What a fantastic series
    This series is hands down amazing. Fantastic character development, purposefully paced and developing story that makes you dive into the scene. I have watched countless, and my queue is massive, but I always make a point to watch this one every week. Goodjob.

    Generally a bad show. But fun to watch.
    This. is interesting. It's a bad show. Make no mistake. It's rushed, it's trying to do too much, and the main character has plot armor of steel. Examples of this are
    The series ...

    The producers have no idea what they want this show to be and it shows..
    Started out an interesting affair with powerful demons encroaching on the human world and a hero and a mage vowing to purge the demons from the land while the lords fight amongst themselves.

  • Black matches everything
    Love this anime, I haven't been hooked to an anime for a long time. love how they are getting episodes out there weekly and the story is phenomenal. They are going in the right direction with the story and keeping people entertained. The fighting is there, but could use a bit more magic. Very underrated out there and don't hear much about it, but I enjoy it more than anything out there right now. ...

  • A Very Marvelous Anime with no Exception
    I've watched many anime's in the past and I have seen many anime's dis-continue or get cancelled simply because there was a poor story line and lack of passion put into the anime itself. However this anime meets those expectation and surpasses them, I see potential in this anime as it brings both a great story line as well as a emotional connection with its audience. I have no regrets that this ...

    Got to ep 9 and rape killed it for me
    Ok so I like traditional sword and magic type anime, sure, and this was a slow start and I was sorta into it but not really. I generally give an anime 5 episodes to hook me and after 10 with this show, I only got a whole lot of pacing issues, rushing through plot, adding characters and background and then you never see those characters again after that episode....then ep 9 happened and rape got ...
