    Poorly executed shot and alt-history.
    The story takes place near the end of the 100 year war and revolves around an "alchemist" and Joan of Arc.

    The main character, for reasons not explained, is favored by many women. He, and they, are French nobles. His desire is to become a demi-god to end the war and bring peace. He seeks this through the philosopher's stone, an item he apparently just so happened to find before the start of the ...

    Ignore downvotes on negative reviews, it is bad.
    Fact of the matter is, this anime just isn't good. It's insulting to the characters from which they are taking supposed inspiration from, the writing thus far is horrible, and clearly they have no regard for setting. This anime was clearly made w/ a mature audience in mind and it shows, but jeez. I don't know what they thought they were going to do with this anime. Like really, a mature man ...

    This Show Deserves A Restraining Order
    I initially tolerated this show thinking it would be a hilariously inaccurate fantasy of Joan of Arc. But instead of a Hundred Years' War fantasy (which could have been an interesting historical fantasy on the dynastic conflict between the English and French royal houses), I get an ecchi lolicon with offensively bad plot and drowning in poor character chemistry. Like you read the story's concept ...

    A perverted mess with a trash story.
    Take the story of Joanne of Arc and then have a horny 13 year old boy re-write it. Then mix in a few more common, bottom of the barrel anime "fan"-service tropes too. That's what this mess is.

    It's perverted but in a totally shameless and un-ironic way. It has no sense of self awareness at all. The pacing is an utter mess, at times way too fast and at other times painfully slow. Very little of ...

    Went from OK to AWFUL in the blink of an eye
    When I watched this anime I thought the first couple episodes were really good! It was loosely based on history, an alright/popular art style, funny with action and cuteness. Now I wish I could wash my eyes out.

    I noticed many reviews hated on how it was based on history, but it wasn't...yea that's historical fiction, then there was the whole little girl case and I was thinking lets let it ...

    Good job animation crew and poor content producers.
    The crew that does all the animation does a top notch job. The content sucks. I gave it four episodes and the whole time it is just one herpadur gimmick after another, "oh wait here's a gimme savior win"...………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..…………………………………………………………………………………..

    I don't recommend it.
    If you don't mind pedophilia, then this is the show for you!

    It started of pretty cool and I was stoked to see more but the little girl thing is too much.
    Other than I think it would be a great show. I had to stop watching after the 4th episode.
    It's just too uncomfortable and weird at times to keep interested.

    Disjointed mess with jarringly morbid moments
    The first 2 episodes feel more rushed than the last episodes of a show that's being cancelled. The main character is a weak mess that could be replaced by a potion vial, and the show seems to randomly take unnecessary and out-of-place dark, morbid turns. I normally try to make it through most of a season before forming an opinion, but this abomination managed to upset me enough in two episodes to ...

    Really disappointing
    it looked promising, but seriously this is so dumb. They could have made it in a different world at least. Basing it off of real countries and people but then just messing it all up makes it a really bad show.
    I do not recommend this show, however it is slightly entertaining, so if you're really just that bored it can be an interesting watch.
