Google translate says over 400 million but that's pretty unbelievable.
Google Translate translates the 万(man) counter as million counter, but in Japanese and Chinese, this counter that comes after thousand is equal to ten thousand. So the count is 4 million. And just for the record, in August, it was 3.8 million copies.

If you ever watched the PV trailer before the series began, and take in to account the recent events, you'll get a sense as to where their relationship will go from here on out. Also, most of the comedy in this show came from Ferris' interaction with Ryner. With them being separated, I anticipate even darker scenarios.

Yep, watched it before but forgot about it. I rewatched it and I certainly get what you mean. Nevertheless, it feels like an unexpected twist to me, very interesting.

Anyone else think Lucile might have torch curse or will heim (two other types of magical eyes mentioned in ep17)? Also during the flash back in ep16, when Lucile was killing his father, he kept repeating "destruction, rebirth...". It resembles what someone would do with magical eyes. And then when Lucile's father was about to die, he said "Don't tell me you're... that...".

Wow~
ID's catch phrase:
"I consume power and release it"
AS' catch phrase:
"Firse comes destruction,
I bring forth nothing,
I bless nothing,
I save nothing,
I just erase,
Completely."

AS is the win!

Ah, I see. Thanks for translating it.

So the anime is having a positive effect on novel sales?
That's good to hear.
I hope we can have another season based on novel sales, since the BD isn't doing well.

Yes, it definitely has. Before the anime, it was at 3.5 million. And I bought all the novels after watching the first 3 episodes, so I was part of those numbers. For the BD, it's only like 12 days since its release, so it might be a bit early to judge.

And my prediction is that after the anime ends, the novel sales will shoot up for sure, since the last episode will leave things hanging, and the anime watchers in Japan will all go buy the sequel to find out what's going to happen next. Incidentally, the time difference of vol 11 of the prequel and vol 1 of the sequel is merely a few hours. As they read the sequel, they will suddenly find that there's too much confusing stuff going on, and they will go back to buying the prequel despite having watched the anime, to have a more holistic understanding especially on stuff the anime has cut out. And after all that, they will realize that some characters that were not newly introduced in the sequel weren't from the prequel, which will cause them to buy the side stories to link up everything. And because of all these novel sales, another studio, if not the same one, might decide to bet on the sequel and make it a 3-cour show!!

And tomorrow I may win a million euros!

Jokes aside, hopefully the anime will do well. I really want Dai Denyuuden to get animated. And, I hope, if this anime sells rather well, they may also animated Toriaezu and Kuro... at the very least as OVAs.

Hey... I can dream too.

It's as if two different studios worked on the episode. One with good high quality in non-action scenes and one with crappy sketchy style in action scenes.

So happy we are finally learning more about the other ocular magic in the series. Being able to consumes humans and magic and boost your own thats a little more frightening than Alpha Stigma. Ryner might have a problem fighting this guy if he can absorb magic like that but there is a limit to everything his absorption powers can not be infinite.

I cant believe that bastard took Clugh's arm i was pretty pissed about that and i think the princess is going to be plenty upset when she seems them since they have obviously grown very very close so close infact that the other troops commented on it.

Anyway, episode 18 was awesome, even better than the last one. I wonder where the story will go from here.

Yeah totally. This weeks episode was easily the turning point in the story, and i have no idea where it'll go from here. Can't wait.

& i personally loved the animation in this episode. Glad they went with a style that suited such an episode.

I think yes ...
The ED show her with others clothes who look like the one we saw in this picture.
Anyways, for the cut part of the novel, it's a little sad but hey ...
We don't need that to know they love each other.
