>1st scene is scared MC falling onto a girl resulting in getting punched.
Is there any reason to watch this?
>rebel boys arrive
>prince sees his chance to stop being a useless pushover, watches the rebel leader murder the basic tsundere princess
>his genocide crusade and ascent to throne begins with all shonen cliches shattered under his boots
holy shit if this goes on like this it'll be AOTS, undisputed
If these mechs can be mass-produced enough to warrant an academy. why is the rest of civilization so backwater when mechs with guns exist?
This is a Kasuga series mate, don't expect the setting to take itself seriously when it has girls to sell.
So anon show me the cutest.
Correction. For Lisha and Krul.
The girls are cuter than average
the story is better than average
the designs and mechs are much better than average
average meaning compared to your typical battle highschool haremshit
I don't think you have better things to do anon, do it for the cutie.
If you look closely at the bottom panel, you can see Lisha's reaction.
Most people don't notice this because the way the artist drew the picture only makes you focus on the two people kissing and not the background.
I know, it makes it even better
Lisha is still best girl
I'll never understand people who complain about battle harems.
Yes, they're unoriginal and mostly garbage. Everyone knows this, especially the people who watch. But people like this kind of shit an the people that write these series know that and pander directly to them. If you don't like them that's fine, don't watch them. Why is it so hard?
Why can't japs ever design proper walls? This piece of shit has so many indefensible sections it isn't even funny. These piles of crap don't even have basic shit, like bloody walkways for defenders.
Seeing as every enemy we've seen so far gives absolutely no shits about walls, I don't really think they cared; they probably let some intern draw whatever squiggly fucking walls he wanted.
So wait. MC seemed confused about where he was when he fell into the girl's bath. Like he had no idea he was at the magic academy. Yet it's in on this giant fucking plateau surrounded by woods. There's literally no way he could have gotten up on the roof of the dorm without scaling the cliff or going through the main gate.
Its IS in a fantasy setting, but with an MC who isn't a potato and Ayumu Kasuga character design.
I don't really understand it, even after reading the LN, he's retard strong. He basically puts himself in a handicap of never attacking with his white suit and never loses, how is he weak in any way?
It's just a stupid thing they do to make him seem like an underdog. ZnT did it, but there was a lot more set up for her actually being strong. These knockoffs just lazily go "lol he's weak but not really" and don't even bother building up to it.
I'm getting fantasies how it would feel like to smash it, either /a/ done a number to my sexual preference or the industry is really embracing feminine boys as of late.
Maybe a bit of both,
ZnT did it because Louise was just using her powers wrong and the moment she figures it out she instantly becomes one of the strongest mages around. In this, and basically all other LNs, protag is just ridiculously strong from the start and only has the nickname because, I dunno, it's easier to self-insert if the protag is called a loser a bunch?
not really. the girls don't even provide good fanservice, the MC's "tragic" backstory has zero reflection on his character, in fact anyone who grew up in his situation would NEVER be a beta self insert random harem MC, but of course the author just wanted to toss in some stupid backstory for no reason (the blond on the other hand, if she actually followed the backstory she has, should want to kill him, but instead, the backstories of course are windowdressing for this self insert beta max loser MC with superpowers for no f-ing reason and his laughably irritating harem.
Honestly, it depends who you are-- anime is not exactly a lifetime hobby, there is not nearly enough value in the entire medium to last someone 20, 30, or 40 years of viewership-- it would probably only take about 7 to 9 years of "moderate enthusiasm" to get through every single high-value anime series. So, as an American anime enthusiast there are only three reasons to watch this:
1) You are new-ish to anime and this is one of your first battle harems.
2) You love the Battle Harem genre.
3) You are now more of a historical fan of anime (20+ years of actively watching it) and like seeing how genres change.
As a Japanese youth (who this show is marketed at) there are way more reasons to watch it. But as an American who has seen many battle harems you can safely pass. In Japan you might get left out of classroom conversations or something similar. In the US that's not really going to happen. So you can skip it!
4) You have nothing else to do with your time
I can still get enjoyment out of something that's cliche, plus I don't want to get left out of /a/ conversations or something similar.
In the year 2122, humanity has entered a new age of peace.
National disputes of the old, once solved through violence, are now determined through battles between "SPers" (pronounced espers), utilizing full-dive virtual reality technology to enter the global network system known as the "Fourth Concept Hardware Actualized Network" to fight in virtual representative matches with weapons created from their words, "Materialized Electronic Message Entities".
MC, a student at the SPer Candidacy Academy, is known as "For Another Generation" due being unable to use anything but the most outdated Materialized Electronic Message Entities. However, his life is irrevocably changed one day when the heroine, one of the school's elite "Named Ones", challenges him to a match with her pride on the line.
That's pretty much it, because these newer LNs don't want to take the time to build up the story like ZnT did. There was a whole arc for Louise figuring out her powers and it was foreshadowed from the start. And you see why they make fun of her and call her zero, because she fails at doing even the most basic things other students can do.
But in these newer magic academy LNs the protag is mocked for literally no reason. He never fails in any meaningful way like Louise did. Or if he does "fail" it's in some stupid contrived way that doesn't matter because the story focuses on something else completely.
It's a side effect of these magic academy LNs having very poorly fleshed out settings. The school just sort of exists because "reasons" and it's always more about competition between students than anything else.
Most recently we had Rakudai where the MC was called "worst one" and made fun of for being rank F. Even though he was so strong he became undefeated in their school's tournaments. It turns out they literally gamed the curriculum to only test things he sucks at, thus making him "the worst one" even though he's actually the best.
Oh and don't get me started on Mahouka with Jesus Onii-sama. Similar to Rakudai: school's testing parameters make him seem weak because they test literally the only two things he happens to not be perfect at. The mockery and hazing doesn't last long in Mahouka though, cause Jesus Onii-sama's godly nature becomes apparent to the people who know him soon enough, and they fall to their knees in worship.
Anti-magic also had it doubly. The entire platoon was known as the "loser squad" and the MC was also made fun of for using a sword (everyone else used guns). Though in Anti-magic they did sorta live up to their name cause they failed every mission. Except the missions turned out to not mean much since in combat they are of course unbeatable and amazing.
Also Absolute Duo, kinda.
At least they actually kind of suck in Antimagic before more joined in. Sniper had anxiety issues and even the MC got his ass beat. It was nowhere near as bullshit and contrived as the other two.
>a mc who is not designed as your typical japanese LN harem mc.
>not a fucking japanese
>have a quite solid backstory
>a blue blood mc, aww yissss.
>behave like your typical harem mc
For what purpose.
Was anyone else concerned with the unrealistic roof caving mechanics?
How can a light kid just break a sturdy looking roof like that? What are they made of? How can he fall through concrete?
How come none of the debris hit any of the girls inside. They showed like 2 planks falling and that's it. The hole had to be at least the size of Lux for him to fall in so much more stuff should've fallen.
Also given the triangular nature of the roof how did he even manage to run on it?
Also judging by the way the school is built he had to fall at least through two whole floors in order to reach the baths because the ceiling in the bath was shown to be flat. His kneecaps should be busted and the princess should've broken her neck under his weight from the impact.
This scene was an insult to both architects and civil engineers giving them a bad reputation.
Teel me /a/, was wiping the old empire with no survivors part of his plan?
In Antimagic they suddenly became better since Ouka could carry the team most of the time and the MC had the magic sword that suddenly made him useful. Even then they barely manage to work together properly to be that effective.
The funny thing in AD, is that the heroine was the true special snowflake.
So he won't be using the Bahamut mech again after a long time? What the fuck. Overpowered MCs can be fun, but an overpowered MC nerfing himself because fuck you is infuriating.
No, he nerfed himself because to the Old Empire faction remnants, he's a TRAITOR. To the Rebellion and the post-rebellion government, he's an unnamed hero who single-handedly wiped much of the Old Empire's military strength.
Problem is, his lineage and fame would only cause him far more problems, so he chose to suffer alongside his younger sister rather than come out and say so. Of course, this point is moot because he'll use it again to beat down Krulcifer's would-be fiance after he makes her cry, and at this point, some of the girls know who he really is.
Oh I understand. Still kind of stupid though since he is OP as fuck everyone would probably cower in fear if he just decided to reveal the truth. It's not like they can even harm him or anything
