Encouraging people fighting to save the world from a mysterious threat is a common plot device in most action anime. Since K has yet to create a genre that's going to follow the same paths as sekai-kei (90's) and everyday slice-of-life shows (00's), as mentionned in the ANN article, I'm betting the kings are going to fight for something other than the clichéd "save the world".

What they're fighting for is just a MacGuffin -- as long as the writers can make us believe its important to the characters, it doesn't matter if it's the Holy Grail or discount food.

To be clear, that is a ridiculously short mini-skirt she has on, right? No leggings on under that? I'm really confused by their choice in clothing design on that, but whatever, I guess.

Need to avoid this show since it wasn't made for someone like me. I didn't notice the "shoujo" tag until very recently, which is clearly that its a fujioshi bait. Just another rehashed Arcana Famiglia spiked with 07-Ghost yaoi-ness.

One thing bothers me why Animax-Asia bother with this one. Its promotional campaign quite misleading too, cleverly baiting viewers into thinking it's gonna be a shounen action show. Talk about genre switch-and-bait.

A pure fujoshi show wouldn't bother with neko,Seri and that loli

Why is it so hard for people to think that maybe the producers are going after both fujoshis and Otakus

It feels a little tacky considering those female characters stick out among all those male characters. If they're making an attempt to attract otaku, why not equalize the male and female cast?

Wow you know so much about this show already! Where did you watch it?

I wish they would remove the shoujo tag, it shouldn't be here, it's not a shoujo show.

You realize a tag at the bottom can be anything added by anyone?

Okay
So nowadays the new rule is :
A show with a lot of boys = Fujoshis
A show with a lot girls = Otakus
It's kinda funny , Tv shows with a feminist vibe are watched now mostly by mens (women doesnt care and even hate it) and the one with males are followed by women mostly now (men care or not ? depends )

Now it seems that the shoujo or shonen classification is function of the number of genders in the hero composition .
I just hope all of this will not go too far .

Just think of it as Durarara with a bunch of bishies.

Shoujo? Someone missed the genres totally. Even manga is Josei.

I don't know who this show is aimed at, but that ponytail quickly hugging the silver-haired-w/a-cute-cat boy got me scared a little. There's nothing wrong with a little camaraderie, but I certainly don't want it to be too many yaoi-ish situations going on.

I couldn't be the only person that got some FullMetal Alchemist vibes from this?

shoujo or shounen I wonder if this would make a lasting impression, just a little skeptical in general about the series.
