Well, I thought it was an okay episode, although I never thought the Soldier vs One-eyed general fight would be higher in tension than Hero vs Maoh. Hope the sequel hooks aren't just there for show.

Overall, an okay show, premise was good enough, but bad execution overall. Thank goodness Maoyuu exists as LN and manga also. Though whether this anime is going to help sales for them...

So many shows to watch, I think I'll check out a few episodes of this. Anything I should expect? Like does it take so many episodes to pick up, are there any particularly enjoyable episodes?

This is a fantasy show about medieval economy, farming, politics and war strategy with some comedy element added. But I also have to warn you to not expecting much. This anime is a rush-job of a much better story (from the original novel and manga) crammed almost mercilessly into 12 episodes. For me, the first episode is still the best (even though still a bit lacking). The worst are episode 2-5, while episode 6-12 are mixed bag but mostly decent. Oh, and it has an open-ending.

"Cut what you love", as they say. It seems those guys really, really loved the story. All my favorite parts, too...

Christ, watching the last episode was like listening to a storyteller who got bored and went off to watch football or something.

The show was a mixed bag. In had a nice plot to it, but it felt a little rushed. I hope the open ending means there's a second season. It has the right elements to be a great series, but it just needs to be put together properly.

The story ended up being one hell of a mess but at least the soundtrack is fantastic. Fatehgadrem is a particularly great track to listen to.

well.. this show got so much similarity with Spice and Wolf... although executed quite boring
since the topic is macro-economy, it's harder to be understood

at least, I really love many developments in this series especially Onee-chan maid
This story is clearly isn't finished yet.. but if they didn't intend to continue the adaptation, I think I'm okay with this ending

8/10 from me... quite enjoyable.. although I'm looking forward to Merchant X Dragon Princess pairing... hohoho.. and more Mage please
