What are /a/'s thoughts on this anime?

It came to me as ridiculously well-researched on the historical context — everything from dress, village and feudal customs, and even mediaeval weapon handling was very historically accurate.

But I've also heard some people absolutely hate it. Why?
>>
>>137522655
It's okay. The rape scene made my dick rock hard.
>>
>>137522655
They didnt like it so they hated it.
>>
>>137522655
Yeah especially the magic was historically accurate!
>>
>>137522749
>what is the symbol of The Other

The whole witch/magic thing being fantastical is exactly because it runs against the social norms of the time, anon.
>>
It was above average, but nothing special. They didn't actually do much with the medieval fightan except for show it happening. The whole thing about Maria losing her virginity but not really but still losing her powers but getting them back anyway because the power of love was dumb as hell. Or I might be remembering wrong.

Maria a best.

Was it this one where all the pagan gods and various other things try to fight the archangel Michael and get blown the fuck out?
>>
>>137522655
It was pretty solid, but i wish it was longer.
>>
>>137522655
I miss it the threads. It never got big enough on /a/ to attract lots of shitposters.
>>
>>137522655
She got raped, right ?
>>
>>137524312
Only in her mind.
>>
Maria and Joseph were cute.

Priapus and Artemis were cute.

Father Fedora was great.
>>
I liked it a lot, was a pleasant surprise that season.

>in this moment I'm no longer euphoric etc.
>>
>>137522655
It was pretty good for the most part, but the last 2 episodes were complete shit.
>>
>>137522655
Was Joan Of Arc in this ?
I would love to see that.
>>
>>137522655
I liked it, but I was triggered every time someone was saying "Maria like the virgin ?!?" because :
- In France the virgin is called Marie not Maria.
- It's the most common female name by far so they shouldn't be surprised to hear it.

>>137522655
Bernard was the best character of 2015.

why did her jaw hurt?
>>
The part where Artemis tried to seduce someone to find out they're gay was the best.
>>
>>137524398
Michael did NOTHING wrong, though.
>>
The story felt rushed, and there was a lot of QUALITY.
>>
>>137524796
The world may never know.

I wish we had the BD scans with the chara designs sheets. Really liked the art style in this show.
>>
>>137524870
It wasn't just anyone, it was a priest.
>>
Loved it, wish it was longer to explore the world more and have more epic battles but hey. Not it was nothing extraordinary but solid and refreshing
>>
>>137522705
there was no rape
>>
>>137525405
There was a little rape.
>>
It was fantastic.

Priest was best girl.
>>
Fun.
>>
They didnt research the fact that witches werent real
>>
>>137526077
Witches are real, magic is fake.
>>
>>137522655
I like it

I liked it a lot but her losing her powers in the end left a really bad taste in my mouth and was pretty stupid. Would have been perfect otherwise.
>>
>>137524398
>Edwina a cute

YES!
>>
>>137523069
She didn't actually lose it.
>>
>>137524033
I think something to that effect happens near the end. Where all the witches try to defend Maria.

I liked that the gods' power was determined by worship, and that even YHWH's power would fade if Christianity lost influence.

>Bernard so Salty
Made me laugh more than it should have.
>>137524893
I want to echo this sentiment.
>>
>>137522655
They should have changed character designs more drastically to appeal to more audience.
>>
according to some weapon guy this show had the most accurate depiction of mideavial weaponry and warfare who have seen in any media.
>>
One of the most underrated anime of last year. But this >>137524439 stood out to me too.
>>
>>137532616
It's true that the combat/battle scenes were really well done. Makes you wonder why instead of making their protag do impossible "cool" shit, studio don't use real combat techniques. It looks way cooler and better, and of course it's more believable

I liked it, but the pacing seemed a little weird at times (she was captured so far from the final episode you could see the 'revenge'/redemption coming from miles away) and the internal conflict Maria had when she was captured seemed very unconvincing. She never really doubts her anti-fighting stance, she just seems to repeat 'why do I want to stop fights again?' a few times and then strike back when she's rescued like she never doubted herself.

Most of the inner conflicts were kinda poor, the grandmother, Joseph, but Bernard randomly going evil seemed like a rushed version of what could have been a good side-plot.

Final episode was meh, too ham-fisted with the 'they lived happily ever after' thing.

Fag. You get it when your wife looks like Dani devito if he went on hormones.

maria was the first anime I tried supporting buying all the BD's. I was hoping they would at least make a figure of her but nothing! $450+ down the drain.

Wasn't the shota incubus raped? Don't remember it's been a while and I wasn't very interested in it and just kind of stopped watching.
