"I haven't promised Usagi to kill this guy, I don't think there's any worth in killing him."

He looked down on Reima and said so coldly.

"Above all... I don't want you to be stained with the blood of a guy like that."

As he said so casually, he felt like the sword housed in its sheath rattled.

He looked at the sword by his waist, at Lapis.

"Did something happen?"

《"No. Nothing."》

"...it might have been my imagination, but aren't you trembling?"

《"No such thing. What are you saying Host, I do not understand."》

"I-is that so..."

Sorry, involuntarily he apologized.

As Takeru stood above Reima, after hitting the ground Tyrving slipped away from Reima's hand.

"Looks like we can't leave it here like that. Lapis, please make a sheath for it."

As he took Tyrving which emitted dim light, and made a request to Lapis.

《"............"》

"What is it? Hurry up, we need to join Usagi and the others."

《"...are you going to form a contract with Tyrving?"》

Flatly. Emotionlessly. However, there was some pressure in Lapis' voice and figure of speech.

"Ha?"

《"I shall not stop you, but if you want to change your contract for one with Magical Heritage, you will have to discard your contract with me. At the same time, you will be targeted by Inquisition. Are you fine with that?"》

"N-no, I had no such intention. I just want to recover it. If it's a sheath made by you, it can suppress magical power leakage thus making it less likely for it to be stolen by someone right?"

《"Although there are parts inferior to mine's, its intrinsic performance is better than mine. However, do not forget there's a 『Curse』 that comes with it. After you use its magic to grant you three wishes——"》

"I won't use it, I won't! The only sword I'm going to use is you!"

After Takeru desperately denied it, Lapis' accelerating voice suddenly stopped.

《"Is that so. That's fine then."》
>>
>Kyouya shotguns the Bunny baddie into blood splatter
Oh wow, what an entrance.
>>
>>133950539
Again, she responded with a flat voice. But unlike earlier, this time it didn't make him feel intimidated.

He made a hard to describe expression and hurried to where Mari was breaking down the operative procedure.

By kicking off the ground, as he jumped from one school building to other, he glanced at his favourite sword that he held in his hands.

What's that... for a while now, she continues to look at me with suspicion.

For some reason, Takeru felt like a husband who's being suspected for cheating.

The LN really gets in stride once it gets out of the cliches. I was one of the people who started off with the anime, and was kinda put off by the generic stuff, but reading the LN has made me appreciate it a whole lot more.

Mephisto, who made Ouka a better girl by making her evil.

>>
>>133962719
That's more because Ouka's body is lewd by default and Mephisto had nothing to do with it.

>>133962741
Mari's body is lewder.

It's fun anon and you can say the same about every genre.
>>
>>133963951
Kyouya really is my favorite rival in the series, he and Takeru are very similar but that is what makes them so incompatible in the end. Plus their fight in Vol 9 is just so hype.
>>
>>133964007
I like how it's basically Kusanagi having to cool and suppress his rage while Kyouya has to let it run wild. Like their intent and goals are so similar, but the way they act is like oil and water.
>>
>>133964273
Yeah, that's why their rivalry just works, plus you know that shotguns are cool so giving the rival one was a good choice.
>>
>>133964273
Pure pottery,

Who is most deserving of killing Haunted?
>>
>>133964352
No one, because Haunted will become God! But honestly, next volume will be Kusanagi and Kyouya fighting Haunted while the rest of the harem deals with Kiseki.
>>
>>133964352
Mari.
>>
>>133964352
I'd say Ikaruga and Kyouya have more reason to kill him than Kusanagi, considering how he stole their most important person.

Seriously, honestly I always though SL was a pretty decent studio for the most part. But this is a new level of butchery for them.

If a second season ever happens (unlikely) then I hope it gets a decent studio continuing it. Though I honestly wouldn't be surprised if whoever picks it up after SL just redoes the whole series. I definitely wouldn't want to follow up this mess.

>>133971769
The LN threads are pretty active for the most part. After the side volume is translated we'll probably be able to have a thread or two of good discussion. Plus the volumes get released at a pretty decent pace, so I think the fanbase on /a/ can last a good while longer.

If there was one thing good I'd say about the anime, it's that it did a nice job at making people be interested in the novel. Which is basically the only reason it exists in the first place; as a very poorly made advertisement.

To be honest, since it all goes up from here, I wouldn't want a different studio wasting time re-doing these episodes. Sure SL butchered them, but better these episodes than the later ones.


Ah who are we kidding, S2 never.
>>
>>133972669
At this point we should be thankful for that, S2 would have been horrible. The only thing I want from this anime is the OST, which was actually pretty good.

At least we got nice pics of Mari for the most part. Kudos to the character designer, did a great job on that end; shame the actual animation couldn't do decent work with it.

I'm still mad that they messed up the first bridal carry with her. I wanted a stuttering Mari webm for my collection.

>>133972821
Maybe we will get some cute SoL scenes with Mari during the next episode, SL can't mess that up right?

I can't remember the last time I was this disappointed with an adaptation. To think I was happy that this series wasn't completely drowning in fanservice with a swimsuit episode but the adaptation from the side volume will probably be exactly that.
>>133972713
Agreed, S2 would rush the better portions which is exactly what we don't want.

the 4 episode coverage of volume 5 would have honestly made up for the lack luster adaptation but nope. I want off this ride.
>>
>>133947380

Is it bad that I want to pick this up solely because I like oranges character design.
>>
>>133973099
Thankfully there's more to it than that. Do it
>>
>>133973099
Watch Mayo Chiki instead.

Wanted to start first episode because I thought Orange haired girl and MC are the love pairing.

I understand that it's most likely a harem but is she not even the main girl?
>>
>>133967684
Aren't all drow femdom?
I read the D&D books.
>>
>>133973093
Maybe they will save three eps for Vol 5, that much is enough right? At least they are not doing Vol 6, right?

Honestly really disappointed with the adaptation, I still feel they could have done a decent job even with the limitations they have right now, if they had toned down the fanservice and just tried to concentrate on the plot. Also they needed a better director for the fights because the fights so far have been pure heresy.

>>133973099
If you like her just do yourself a favor and read the LNs.

>>133973138
She is main girl, and will keep that title for the volumes the show will cover.

Orange is main girl, while hat and scarf can be considered the only major runner up.

The two hate each other but are also tsundere as hell with each other. So threesome end is also likely.

>>133973099
Read the LN's, she has a lot of interesting quirks in her character, and some cool scenes that the anime skims over. If you like her she is great in the novels, to the point where she was actually the focus for a whole volume rather than the MC.

Not really that at all

>shitty loli
I don't think you know what that word means. Flat chest ≠ loli.

And calling the girl who gets the most shit done in every major event shitty is pretty stupid for someone who hasn't touched the series yet.

I really hate saying this line, but seriously read the LNs. There's a reason why it is repeated ad naseum in these threads, it's actually a very significant difference than the usual bitching about an adaptation.

And make sure to check the archive for the Metal Gear Rising soundtrack for certain scenes. Believe me it makes everything better.
>>
>>133973230
Yeah just take this anon's >>133973300 advice and read the novels, and remember to use the MGR soundtrack while you do it.

I am my own master now = Takeru fights Onii-sama for the Truth
The Stains of Time = Orochi
Collective Conciousness= Sougetsu
A Soul Can’t Be Cut= Kiseki
Rules of Nature= Mech Dragons
Dark Skies = Orochi and Mother Goose
Locked & Loaded = Kyouya

Was the Innocentius scene even worth mentioning?

Pretending that you're right doesn't actually make you right you know? Kind of like how pretending that you're not retarded, doesn't actually take away from the fact that you are a retard.

Pretty simple concept to understand for the most part. Though considering the latter also applied to you as much as the former; I guess I shouldn't expect that much out of you.
>>
>>133973838
Magic is dangerous and elves are naturally proficient at magic.

But yes, they're sluts too

Is this some sort of new version of damage control? Making yourself look like an even bigger jackass when you already make an idiot of yourself doesn't seem that useful.

>>133973838
I think the in-universe explanation was that they were super OP magic wise, or something? Makes me wonder how humans actually pushed them to extinction.

But them being leftovers from the Norse mythology world probably also has something to do with it.

Kind of glad they went with gray instead of brown. Always thought that look was more distinctive for dark elves.

My point was that its not worth reading LN's most of the time for obvious reason. He proved that point by saying this is the only battle harem ln thats completely up to date.

>The girls in this show are better
I think it's better to say all the girls in this show remain relevant. They get their focal arc, but unlike a lot of other ones they don't just fade into obscurity and do a jealous reaction every so often at whatever new girl enters the harem.

But yeah, OST and character design are basically all the anime has going for it.
>>
>>133974421

Really. They could've gone with Rakudai's team and repeat C3's dark tone and imagery and it'd have been perfect.

Biggest disappointment in years.

>Inquisition also has a black ops division that acts as a secret police force. Torturing those they need information from, and it's current captain is superhuman and capable of beating the shit out of everyone in the story.

And all the anime only viewers know is that there is magic, and fun happening at the academy; with no real sense of tension in the setting at all. Nice.

There are gorillions of generic battle harems already, for once here's one with also some real plot and a dark background. And then SL minimizes the only thing that separates AA from the rest crap and gives us only the same old shit. Not wonder is not selling.

Volume 7 is basically the Battle of Stalingrad - Heresy Edition with ordinary rank and file inquisitors and witches killing each other from building to building in the ruins of a city while both sides are stalked by an insane serial killer.

Then I must be deaf because aside from that one track they had in the pool in the most recent episode, literally nothing stands out. You say vanilla, I say underwhelmingly generic.

Then there's also the shit involving the magic academy and her being the only one able to beat Mother Goose/Gungnir. So she's pretty fucking necessary to have around.

Oh, and before I forget, fuck off. I would normally say you have shit taste, but all the girls in this series are fine. Why don't you learn how to be a decent poster instead of a jackass; try following the other tripfags' example in this thread.

I dropped this at ep. 2 because I couldn't get past the generic harem shit.
Did it get at least enjoyable by now?
>>
>>133981282
No. We're only here because of the novels. We're hoping they at least won't fuck up volume 5.
>>
>Not slicing the dragon in half.
You only had one job SL, one job.
>>
>>133981282
Anime wise? Not really, which is a shame because they fucked up the part where the novels get really interesting (at least the most interesting part before shit goes down in volume 5).

This is pretty much an LN discussion thread which is centered around moaning about the adaptation.

I suggest giving it a read though even if you find the anime boring. It's really different from the usual harem shit, even if the anime doesn't give off that impression.
>>
>>133981282
>Did it get at least enjoyable by now?
Yes.
>>
>>133980921
The cool speech is cut out but it's still there

The adaptation is good enough.
Any idiots who think otherwise aren't considering that limited screen time mean that they can't spend time on detailed world building and side-characters. Any adaptation is obviously going to go for a focus on the main plot and cast, specially on a 1-cour adaptation which works as LN promotion material.

There is literally no better way to adapt this LN.
Not when the publisher that funds the adaptation asks for X amount of adapted volumes (to promote them) and gives you limited screentime to do it.

It's literally the same way with every adaptation, only big studios like KyoAni can have the luxury of only adapting 1-2 volumes per cour.
>>
>>133981807
Cutting out a few of the fanservice scenes would have improved my opinion of it.

Nah. The execution of most of the scenes beg improvement. I can accept the two episode per volume format but aside from a few scenes like Ouka's backstory in the second episode and what not, the series really shows the director's inexperience. I can guarantee that this would have turned out far better if say the director for Rakudai was the one handling this.

Sougetsu scene and embarrassed Lapis were the best scenes. The Sougetsu one was perfect if you ignore the QUALITY, Innocentius sums him up really well.

I was ready to forgive the weird end to rules of nature, so long as Kyouya was in the epilogue. They even did the ED early. But no, it's fuel tank scene plus a filler announcement.

fuccccckin kidding
>>
>>133982458
Oh come on, couldn't they have wastes a minute or two showing scenes with Kyouya to set him up instead of having scenes like the festival cafe stuff? It doesn't have to be much but at least Kyouya needed the time to set him up properly as a rival.

I'm not watching it blind, but I feel if I was these last two episode's would have barely made sense. They really rushed this arc.

Try fitting 5 chapters in a single episode while satisfying the audience without an eventual incomplete asspull ending.

To be fair, yes this adaptation has managed to keep the plot mostly intact, even though it has to jump over things that would have helped set up the mood better or just make the characters more interesting.

She got ignored by Orochi in Vol 11 too. Being a Kanafag is suffering.
>>
>>133985892
Hope my old enemy, even though all you bring is despair, I still need you.

To be honest, I think if you cut away the chase scene, and then make the focus of the first ep about the Kiseki meeting, then her breaking out to end it with Takeru pointing his sword at everybody.
Then make the second ep about the backstory (really fast), Dato and then end with Kyouya and Takeru despairing.

And finally have the third episode be about the convoy attack, Kyouya vs Takeru (rushed?) and then end it with Kiseki then maybe it could work.

Honestly if they do a proper God Hunt scene I would be fine (add in the ending theme so give it some emotional impact and it should work).
>>
>Mari will never pump you full of mana

>>133985892
Ep 10: Background on relationship, the prison visit scene, hunting a perp, Kiseki breaks out and meets Takeru

Ep 11: Date, Kyouya, Kyouya retcon backstory, Kurogane stops fight, Kiseki put into transport, convoy attack as cliffhanger

Ep 12: Onii-sama vs Orochi, Kyouya vs Takeru, Takeru vs Kiseki

Like that?
>>
>>133986045
That sounds like it'll work pretty well, more or less.
Which is probably why SL won't do it.
>>
>>133986045
I feel that having the background before the date is a bit bad for establishing the mood, if anything it should happen after the date, or while they are doing it.

If they are smart they will introduce Kyouya in the filler episode to save some time or something.
