It may be a somewhat vulgar and a touch on the immature side, but I'm curious to see where they're going with it and think the concept is kind of neat. It's a lot like fate/stay night in a way, in how they resurrect and assemble these legendary heroes from across history. Only instead of having masters and fighting in a battle royal, the servants here split off into two factions and fight a war on each other in what seems like middle earth?

Synopsis: In 1939 C.E., the imperialist nation of Germania invaded a neighboring country. All at once, that war spread throughout Europe, and the era was dragged into a spiral of a great war.
Then, in 1940, Germania's attack turned towards the Principality of Elystadt, a small Alps country abundant with beautiful water and greenery.

I thought the first ep was 'okay', but it's a bit of a shame to see it going from being more political focused to more centered on action in the second ep.

This is shaping up to be like some bizarro world version of strike witches. Takes place during the same time in history, but because the neuroi never attacked, humans weren't too nice to the witches this time around.

Its a remake of Junketsu no Maria by the same studio, but set in a different time period
For those of you who never saw Junketsu no Maria, it aired earlier this year so you might have it stashed somewhere on your media drive (if people still even have those)

Rinne sending the girl to the hospital due a broken ego was incredibly amusing.

it was getting a bit difficult to suspend disbelief in that none of the teachers or faculty were aware of any of the bullying happening, especially when the school's property was damaged, but all's well that ends well.

In any case, Fuuka's time going from 10-14 years old was a lot rougher than Rinne's, yet we get to spend the next episode with everybody apologizing to Rinne and feeling sorry for how rough she had things.
>> No. 27223 [Edit]
>none of the teachers or faculty were aware
This sort of thing is so common place in japan it has me wondering if the teachers know about it but don't care or do anything, as long as no one kills themselves and gives the school a bad rep.

for me, this has been one of the only watchable animes this season. i've been dying for a little moe goodness and stella no mahou has been a good balance of adorable and adult commentary.

a lot of moe anime is so banal: cliche characters and contrived fan service that doesn't relate to the plot or characters. a good example would be New Game! from last season. it was the only half way watchable moe anime that season, but was so dull to watch. yes the characters are cute looking, but their antics are so inorganic and unoriginal. i just didn't care about anyone in the anime.

stella no mahou has enough to define its characters (particularly its protagonist) making them more than just the usual caricatures.

Tamaki Honda is so adorable! her love for her shonen male characters is awesome. every time she gets all flustered over them i just want to scoop her up in my arms and cuddle her forever!

it really is a a wonderful end theme.

anyway, i digress (somewhat).

to respond to the actual anime, i've found it to be an absolute pleasure. it delivers the content i need to survive as a degenerate, but does not fall victim to the usual shortcomings of and ecchi anime. usually i hate ecchi anime because it is a go-nowhere, sexually frustrating cocktease; keijo has a lovely satirical flavor that really frames its ecchi ethos in a pleasurable, and more importantly, purposeful way.


complaining about a lack of storyline in
ecchi anime? you know, i dont think the goal of ecchi anime is to have thoughtful, or even good writing. ecchi elements in anime is one thing, but the genre of ecchi anime is another; there is a reason that ecchi almost anime is always terrible. if you want a good ecchi anime, you need to be like keijo, and give it a little satirical flavor, that is one of the only things that makes anime in this genre even vaguely watchable.

As far as ecchi goes Keijo also has a moderately entertaining story. There's not a lot to think about, it's a battle shonen with ass, and cute girls.

Not much to complain about, and you certainly won't see me complaining too much about any story problems, it just bothers me that they cut so much material out, which is more of an issue with adaptations at large than this specific one.

Takamura, Kazuhiro (season 1+2) is still behind character design, and on board to direct. Only this time around they're also being put in charge of the script, storyboard, and acting as the animation director too. Studio might be different but I think you can expect it to stay true where it counts.

I thought the first ep was pretty decent. MC didn't even feel like 'as much' of a Miyafuji clone as I thought they would be, even when pointing out a photo of Miyafuji. water skipping thing payed off in a decent way, and the character doesn't feel too over powered or anything. Needless to say I look forward to future ep.

I'm liking everything apart from the CGI fighting. It seems like they improved it a tiny bit in the 3rd episode, but it still looks weird. Hikari is much more interesting and enjoyable than Yoshika was.

I'm a bit disappointed in the lack of full-screen butt shots, but I don't mind that the series is being a bit more story focused this time around.

Let's have a thread for "old" stuff (i.e. not from the newest season) that you're catching up on.

Pic related: I'm watching Hidamari Sketch x 365 (AKA the second season). I've been thinking for awhile lately that I wanted to watch something with a "weird" character like Osaka/Rin, and Miyako kinda fits the bill, so this was just what I'm looking for.

What are you watching?

Recently saw hoshi o ou kodomo.
It was a nice little adventure fairy tail sort of thing. It had really good animation and art. It's just a little weird that the girl goes in and out of having a manface, especially on the cover. I honestly thought it was a photoshoped edit when I first saw it. Said girl's motivations were also a little unclear to me, I might have missed something but I just kept wondering why she was even there in the latter parts of the film. Anyways I enjoyed it.

Just saw Denpa Teki na Kanojo. Kind of a nasty reminder of how fucked up the world can be, and why I don't usually watch these types of anime. That said it wasn't 'too' bad I guess. Although one of things I took issue with was the pseudo detective work. It didn't feel like they did any real investigating and as such the conclusions didn't feel earned. In both eps Ame draws some really wild conclusions without much to go on. That combined with always knowing when what's his face is in danger leads me to wonder if they're not simply psychic or have some precognition powers.

I'm not watching this anime, but your comment made me remember how when I watched that movie (I was a child) I thought those silver-haired girls were super pretty and forever ingrained in me the taste for blonde hair. Even now I have a predisposition to like silver-haired characters by default.

The Inami clone feels much less annoying than Inami, but it still bothers me that they can get away with that sort of thing. Inami should have been arrested and or fired for the way they acted countless times, Hana too if this is a regular occurrence.

But Natsume has been burned by trying that when he was younger, and he would rather keep it in the closet than risk losing the current family.

Though it would be quite odd if they weren't fairly well aware of the schizo's three way conversations with the walls and the super fat cat at this point.

In this thread, we discuss and point out regular cliches and common occurrences found in anime.
a example would be the well known protag seat, but there are many out there, some more obvious than others.

Just to start things off, this is one I've been seeing a lot of.
Characters who fail to notice obvious things directly in front of them, often times needing someone to point it out for them.

Every now and then you get that one girl who cuts her hair short like a boy, dresses like a boy, and acts like a boy of their own free will. They then strongly lament not being more feminine, as if they're being forced with a gun to their head to continue looking and acting like a boy.
