Now that I've watched the subbed episode, the dialogue is really off-putting. Who the hell remarks on someone's eyecolor in their first meeting as ash mauve colored or pale green, peridot? I'd expect that from someone's mary-sue/gary-stu fanfic, but, come on... Minor nitpick aside, hopefully next episode will improve because I desperately need some quality shoujo animu fixes right now.

Hmmm I could see why it was called that. Though I think Lydia looks a bit more like Shirley then Edgar looking like Shiz. Its her eyes.

About their talks on the eye color, perhaps the series is just being poetic and stuff. It's old Europe by the way, where classic literature are more popular and people are acting noble and stuff xD If you hear such dialogues in an anime that is set during modern times . . . then there's really somethign wrong ^^; Unless it's part of the character's personality.

Speaking of Mary Sue . . . I see Lydia as becoming such a type x_x . . . .aaaaahhhh!!!!!! *dislike for Lydia is growing and growing*

That's what got me watching this series in the first place!! If I hadn't seen Edgar, I would never have even thought of watching this anime.

@Yami-pin: Haha, so Stein took over your sig. Naru will definitely kill us now.

I still can't stop imagining Code Geass while watching this. I saw the first ep.

First thing I realize:

Edgar = Xingke

Secondly, during that moment when Lydia and Edgar were staring at each other, I started thinking, "Geass her now!"

As for me, I think I'd still watch this even if Edgar wasn't part of the cast because fairy + old Europe setting + pretty art will always attract me *_* . . . . .*a sucker for fantasies*

But, Edgar's being such a Tamaki look-alike had been a super huge factor that made me want to see it as soon as possible xD In other words, it wouldn't have been such a top priority if it weren't for Edgar xD Hehehee

I don't know if it's our different tastes in female characters or not but I am watching this show BECAUSE of Lydia. Her character design is unique (especially her hair as someone mention before) and her personality in the first episode is such a breath of fresh air. I believe she only blushed ONCE and that's because he was grabbing her before falling into the ocean. I can't stand female characters taht go lovey dovey/blushy over male characters every few seconds so I am loving Lydia at the moment. And the way she brush aside all those flattering and flirting from Edgar? I love her strong stance. However, this is all coming from someone who hasn't watched Episode 2 with subs yet.

But if our tastes in heroines are different, we can agree to disagree. I just want to say something to defend Lydia because I love her .00001% more than Edgar right now~

I don't actually dislike Lydia after watching the first episode. And surprisingly, we have the same reasons for liking her. I admire strong females that don't blush too much, who dares to shove away the guy's flirty acts, and has a unique character design

HOWEVER, leading ladies that trip (or anything really clumsy/stupid that will make her easier to be captured by the enemy) on critical situations more than once (I can understand if it's just once in a number of episodes, but for two consecutive episodes? BAD SIGN!) and being held hostage by the enemy helplessly (it's not that I only like the fighter type, but they could be the brave [like she's not afraid of getting hurt or killed, whether she'll be saved or not] or selfless type [like those who tell others to escape instead of saving her], but Lydia had been the helpless type IMO >_>) . . . . or in other words, a damsel-in-distress, is a big TURN OFF for me x_x

BUT, this is just the second episode. And I haven't seen the sub either, though I've read summaries. Maybe Lydia won't turn out to be such a character after all. So I can't really tell if I'll hate her till the end ^^;

As of now, I really dislike her because I tend to forget her likable traits because damsels-in-distress piss me off so much x_x Though I admit I've liked some female characters who are like that, but their positive traits had been powerful enough for me to ignore their damsel-in-distress moments xD Hehe.

But yeah, it's also possible that maybe it's simply just because our tastes in heroines differ xD Sorry for thinking of ill thoughts of your favorite character ^^; . . . but I can't help it x_x The thought of her had began to irritate me x_x But though I dislike her, I don't dislike her fans of course Everyone's opinions and tastes differ. Hehe.

Sorry to say, but bad writing doesn't really excuse anything, shoujo or not. Still, I'm hoping for some improvement next episode.

As for your seemingly frothing hate over Lydia, I'd reckon you won't have much fun with this series then, considering she is the lead character.

For me it was okay though. Or maybe my qualifications for good dialogue just isn't that high ^^; Or simply because it just doesn't bother me. Hehe.

Is Edgar really the Earl? He certainly seems like an imposter, but then.. Who else can be the Earl? Perhaps, he is what he claims.

That's funny because I believe our tastes in females are actually almost completely the same. XD However, I am not as harsh I guess? I agree that I hate female leads that trip but I don't hate those that get captured if they have not shown any signs of being able to defend themselves beforehand. For example, I found myself hating this one female character who has shown that she has mastered karate for the past how many years and gets into hopeless situations over and over. That I hate a lot. What happen to that karate? Damsels in distress are a turn off for me as well but as of the moment, I am overlooking all this in Lydia because one, she hasn't shown any signs of physical training in the past so I can't expect her to kick ass out of nowhere and two, her other refreshing qualities outshine her lesser ones. I hope she will improve as a character more though.

I believe our tastes are the same except that I don't think Lydia's bad traits >> good traits thus far. I'm glad you won't dislike her fans since as a Sheryl fan from Macross Frontier for example, I read a lot of bashing on my char and my end in the past. I guess in other words, I'm more tolerant of Lydia at the moment. I don't mind the needing help thing. BUT if she turns out to be Mary Sue, I might change my mind. Mary Sue is a big No-No for me. ^_^

I just watched Episode 2 subbed and as far as I can tell, the answer to Edgar being an Earl or not is...

Spoiler for Edgar's Real Identity:


Thanks to Episode 2, I am officially an Edgar fan. :P

I think I have been harsh xD After seeing episode 2, she wasn't as bad as I thought she was from watching the raw. I guess what triggered me to hate her that much was her constant tripping x_x It reminded me so much of a certain leading female in a very very popular teen novel. That girl is one of the leading females that are high in my hate list so Lydia reminding me of her had been a bad sign for me x_x
But well, since she doesn't seem to be as bad as that girl . . . .she's hell more decent actually . . . so for now she's okay. I won't become easily irritated on her on episode 3 if something like that happens again if I haven't seen it subbed. Hehe.

I am alright with those that can't defend themselves. I just hate those who have the helpless look and "save me" dialogues. But there had been exceptions of course, hehe.

I don't expect Lydia to kick ass. She's a . . lady xD Haha! I'm totally fine with her type . . . .just don't get rescued every single episode ;_; That's just annoying T_T

I can understand character bashers *since she's one of them . . . SHOT!* but with fan bashers . . . that's a different issue -_-
Wait, you like Sheryl? *notices icon* Oh yeah xD I didn't continue watching MF but I'm alright with Sheryl . . . the one I can't stand was Ranka >_> *Ranka fans threw rotten tomatoes at her*

Ep 2

A slightly better impression now than I had after 1 ep. These characters still haven't exactly won me over, though.
