I should add that you in no way have to have watched any of the Shingeki no Bahamut Series to watch this.

I ordered seconds about one month ago and I'm still waiting.



Regular broadcast has started, new episode soon™.



>i'm not at all familiar with the franchise

I suggest giving this a look, if it seems interesting to you. I haven't watched anything else of the franchise either but I still enjoyed the first EP and didn't have any trouble understanding it.



This is most likely going to be a simple fantasy SoL. I've never seen Bahamut either, nor played the games.



Genesis is really fucking good, and requires no knowledge of the setting at all.

Virgin Soul is garbage and you shouldn't touch it ever.

The tail fanservice is appreciated.

It's visually a very nice series; in a way it's too much for what it actually delivers.

I sincerely hate yuri bait



>new episode soon™

Finally. It was well worth the wait. Those two are so cute, I can't get enough.

I even like Swordguy. Just some dude doing his job, I almost wish he was hidden in the background of more scenes.


Doesn't really seem like "bait" to me. At least Anne is very much gay for Grea.



I think it counts as bait if nothing explicitly yuri actually happens, ie. kissing, and I wouldn't expect that here.



That's a pretty low bar for bait but I still hope that we get to see some kissing here.

It's so hard to have a gay time on your own.

I was wondering if the piano was ok out in the open like that but it's probably enchanted or something.



It was a bit weird that they went out of their way to show it getting soaked in the rain, but yes, we're probably not supposed to think too hard about it.



Yeah and I don't mind "its magic I ain't gotta explain shit" is perfectly valid in a high fantasy setting like that. Might as well be some low level guardian spirit in the that tree which keeps the piano, garden and rest of the building from decaying completely.




I know I sound childish but i have grown more and more annoyed by the yuri=not yuri behavior I see in a lot of anime these days. Its reaching sickening levels. I'm not a homophobe, but something about the constant yuri baiting in these animes just angers me to no end.



I just don't understand why they refuse to commit.

For people like me who like yuri, the baiting is annoying and it would be much better if it were real.

For people who dislike yuri the baiting is already a bad thing.

I don't mind it so much for most of light SoL series, but with the tone this series has set it really needs to make it real.

>"A Slice of Life"

Couldn't they have thought of a better title? Like "BIG GAY FIGHT"? The former would've suited like 70% of the episodes more than it did this one.

Next week is probably the last episode, unfortunately it's only 10 episodes.



>it's only 10 episodes.

They are going to make more right? Maybe even get full length episodes next time?



I sure hope so, but there are no announcements that I know of.



Apparently volume 1 BD sales broke 12k. It's possible.



>Gay dragon x gay human sells this much

I'm happy if we get more of this but hurt at the same time


>However, on 8 March 2016, all of the series' staff was removed "due to various circumstances."

What the hell happened during production of this series? I was looking the series up when I saw that. It only a month before it was first scheduled to air, too.

It certainly doesn't seem to have hurt the final product, but what kind of shitshow must have gone on behind the scenes of the original?


It outsold Genesis and Virgin Soul combined.



>but hurt at the same time

There are few series this season that might deserve to sell more than this. Not that it's such a great anime, but that it's such a well-made anime.



All I remember was anons happy that season 2 would come sooner as a result.

If only we had known.

I've been trying to decide if it was a flawless anime or not. I'm leaning towards no, because for all the yuri teasing, they haven't gone far enough. If there's a second season, and they go full gay in it, then I'll consider this season good, too. These last two episodes have very slightly brought down the mood also.

Still it is close to being a masterpiece, makes me glad that you can make a high-effort, high-budget anime about nothing but two girls doing somewhat gay things while comfy music plays, and have it do really well.

Has an OST dropped? The music is comfy/10 and I want that new version of the ED in the last episode.



The animation and sound were great. We needed AnnexGrea to be more blatantly gay. Through my advanced yuri goggles I took the room sharing to be a marriage certificate and assumed the day before Anne left they slept together which is how Anne got the skin. Somehow its not enough. I want 2 more cours of this where Anne spends time stroking Greas tail and wings.

>you will never have your shed skin stored and sniffed by another girl

This caused me pain all over.



Anne got the skin early on when Grea molted.

How does a mobile game company consistently make the best anime every season. It's honestly just absurd at this point



Feels like the old idea of you do the big dumb popcorn movie to fund the indie film you really want to do. Cygames said as much way back, that they were gonna do mobile to fund the games they really wanted to make and they are doing it now. That and the bunch of anime they are helping fund. I bet this show was a bit of a test, a short show is a good place to do that. The japs are skilled at hunting whales, glad that some of them are using that to bring us some fatty tuna too.



>they were gonna do mobile to fund the games they really wanted to make and they are doing it now. That and the bunch of anime they are helping fund.

The whales pay for the anime directly as well as through the mobage.

Shows like this and Uma Musume sell far more than they normally would because there are mobage codes included with the BDs, which the whales go nuts for. I'm not complaining; even if it's artificially inflated, I'm plenty happy to see shows like this have the appearance of being big hits.



Doesn't Bamco do that with idolmaster? The whales on deresute I think have been single-handedly paying for the gekijo short anime. If Cygames wants to do it on a bigger budget and pay for nice works like this and Umamusume then so be it. Its more or less crowdfunding. On that topic, has anyone attempted a blatant anime crowd source? I know Nekopara had one but I'm thinking something bigger like Manaria Friends.



> On that topic, has anyone attempted a blatant anime crowd source?

Off the top of my head, Bungou Stray Dogs and Little Witch Academia were.
