This MC ability is overpowered as fuck. She writes her own story so essentially she can make her own magical abilities on the whim. Good thing a dork has those abilities, anyone else and it can be troublesome. Her calling out Cinderella was pretty funny.

Like, if every episode was as high energy and filled with this level of comedy, this anime could have been lifted from a sort of passable anime to a great anime, in my opinion.
I'm still enjoying the experience but there's so much detracting from it tonally and visually that it gets hard to actually like it, but what it does seem to excel in is its comedic moments. So, I'll continue watching it hoping for some more funny moments like from this episode.
I'm actually rooting more for the Russians just because their so much more enjoyable and the Japanese team have such weak motivations (albeit, somewhat funny ones).
(Also, Shizuka and Hazuki is a much better ship than Yuzu and Mei. 2nd best yuri ship of the season behind Eiko and Kiyose for me.)

Oh my god! The hilarity continues in this episode with the Russian team's antics: First sending aa cold blizzard their way to make them catch a cold, ahh, playing the long game, I see; then making them laugh uncontrollably by telling terrible Russian jokes so they will stand immobilised; then making use of Maria Rasputin's ability to control movements of others to make them hop like bunnies into the concealing glove. All of these plans would be genius (except for the first, of course, but colds are really bad) but the Russians are all incredibly incompeent so they completely mess things up. Maria runs into a tree and this breaks her control on Hazuki and Shizuka after they capture Ariko, and Eva runs out of jokes so they couldn't capitalise on this strategy. It was fun seeing them mess up in such spectacular ways.

Also, we get a little more insight into what Hazuki's powers intale in this episode. She is able to will things to happen if she truly wishes for them to happen deep in her heart as shown by her allowing the wish of the Russian team to be granted (making Tatiana smarter so that she isn't as easily manipulated by others). This episode was actually pretty good and almost brought me to tears at one point, until I started laughing again because of how ridiculous the situation was. I'm really surprised how much I'm actually enjoying this considering how bad much of the early season was. Too bad the next episode won't be out into later this month. This episode didn't have as big of a problem with animation as the last one did though, so that's good. It's good that they're taking a step back and actually working on it and giving it more time to be a better standard though.

This episode was pretty good and the Russian team is just as dumb. The animation quality was improved this episode. So I guess the delays for the next two episodes might be a good thing. Lets see these dorks in two weeks.

Haha I texted that exact picture to a friend. I like the art style they use(when it’s not garbage lol) but man things really went south in that 3 week break. Do we know the reason for the break? I never really pursued it just saw it’ll resume on the 22nd.

Edit: Oh. RIP. I saw someone posted a link to a story about taking a break to improve animation quality. That went...well.

What was the the point of that break if the animation quality was just going to be worse than what it was before? Loved the animation of the first five episodes but now it looks like the animators had one too many before working.

Looks like two weeks wasn't nearly enough time. I've watched a ton of anime and this is probably one of the worse animated episodes I've seen in quite some time.

I am at a loss for words when it comes to the animation quality. I was expecting some where along the lines of blu-ray quality when they said they'll be taking a break to improve the quality.

Although it is unfortunate from what we have seen, I actually do enjoy this anime and the story. it's interesting to me. Either way, I will finish it regardless of the downgraded quality.

Thanks for reading.

"Won't name names to respect the privacy of the people involved, but if you see Marchen Madchen literally melt despite taking a break keep in mind there's been... inner turmoil in the production, to the point of creators saying they no longer acknowledge it as their work."

"The schedule is irredeemably bad, regular staff are at the point of putting their health at risk, and there's even been many issues crediting people properly. If you don't like what you're seeing, definitely don't blame the animators in this case."

Holy crap... I mean, I realize there's gotta be a reason for this, but this is absolutely terrible. The show never looked good but this was just an absolute abomination, and that's coming in an episode that was supposed to be delayed for quality reasons.



It would be easy to blame the animation staff but this is very obviously something wrong at pretty much every level of this project, and I actually feel bad for the art staff who may end up tagged with this tripe on their resumes in the future when it just can't be all their fault.
