yea thank god I like katanas but sheesh, hopefuly theres another char who wields a two handed bad ass sword ...and not a cloud rip off

i've already made my OC for this anime, he wields a two handed sword with one hand but not easy, and his left arm is coverd by a cape never seen before but his left arm is actually Demonic and sealed so it doesnt consume him completly. there will be a time where he unseals it for heroic reasons and swings his Sword around like Knightmare from SC4. He's also more armored than most of the other knights. I calling him "kail"

I was also thinking of giving him a Demon sword for the hell of it, also a girl for comedy reasons and other stuff

Ahh... that OC... sounds pretty cliché, to be honest. Two-handed sword wielded with one hand, cape covering a demonic left arm...

Mine would probably wield a normal arming sword, but being a traveler from far lands, hers would be one made of better quality steel. As would her armor. This gives her a non-magic edge to be on even footing with the magically forged katana and demon blades.

Of course, this may change as the series furthers. I usually get new ideas each episode.

Well, I'd suggest choosing either wielding a two-handed sword with one arm, or a demonic arm. Not both at once. One of the good things about this series is that they're actually trying to separate the different types of swords instead of all of them simply being 'swords', taking away what makes a zweihander special would be doing the opposite.

... You could, I guess. I mean, it's not fully impossible, but that'd still take away what makes a zweihander special. For a one-armed swordfighter, I'd say fencing would be a much more logical path to take. Not to mention more interesting as well, rather than going out of the way to do things with swords for which they aren't made, you'd have a character proving that you can be a one-armed swordfighter in a more believable way. Maybe he could even end up teaching Cecily a thing or two.

because that would make too much sense and rob the main character of their badassery.

The character in a story I've been working on for the past 8 years, wields a regular 1 handed sword with either one hand, or both. He also carries two smaller swords incase he loses his main weapon and will dual wield them when necessary. Agility and precision strikes are his two strengths/skills as going toe to toe with big baddies would be unfavorable for him.

If I would make an OC for this... he would be a knight in plate armour with a longsword and a shield.

Someone who is effective in battle not because of better skill or equipment, but because of a mix of both so his equipment covers for what he lacks in skill and vice versa.

Someone who comes out of battle bruised and covered with dirty, but alive because he fought with every trick he knew.
This may be not elegant and shining hero-like, but as long it gets the job done it's alright.

This episode might be the best one so far. I would love to really read the novel series if I knew japanese. Cecily made alot of progress as a character. I still want to know how Luke's magic/smithing works. It seems like there are limitations and it can be used relatively quickly. The 1st time he used it, it was probably for dramatic effect it took that long. Also I think the very beginning of the 1st episode she was fighting while he was casting. Anyway great episode, can't wait until the next one.

Maybe this anime should get its own sub forum with all of the discussion going on? Its starting to get pretty cluttered here. I'm sure there are some manga/novel fans as well.

Wow.. how many breast jokes do we need in one episode?

Episode 4 was a little disappointing actually. I may be expecting too much from this series; will have to lower my expectations a little.

As for the whole "the 1st time he used it, it was probably for dramatic effect..." statement, i think that it's more of a "The first time you guys see this, we show you the whole sequence, from now on, you'll see a snippet of it, and we'll focus on something else and come back to it". Remember how when he's chanting "Fold FOld Fold FOld" it changes to Cecily? Well just think of it as him continuing to say it in that slot but the producer just didn'tw ant you to focus on that scene...again. The same thing happened with Aria transforming into her "demon blade" form. It seemed a lot "shorter" because they cut out the other stuff. In real life (if it were real), it probably takes just as long as it did the first time.


edit:
Anyway, why can't Aria switch back to a human when she realizes she's in danger of being taken by the demon? Switching to a human she could run away -_-. And from what i recall, it doesn't take long to switch back. So why does she just sit there in her sword form like an idiot? IIRC, she was able to recount all the people that were slain by "her", so i guess that means she is still conscious when she is in her sword form. So she should seriously just switch back to a human when she needs to.

Even though she is a demon, she would get her clothes burnt off, and apparently she knows it will turn Cecily on.

I think I will classify Aria as a longsword with a handguard rather than a rapier. In Cecily's hands it seems more like a slashing and chopping weapon rather than a jabbing weapon.

Ever watched Claymore? Irene's swinging style can pretty match his technique, but he needs to be less brutish in swinging his sword. If I wanted a sword style for my OC I would choose something like Tooru's nodachi from Asura Cryin.

And good news for you perverts out there :

My OC is a dwarven drunken master whose "maken" is his gauntlets, which transform into a killer rabbit. The rabbit is also a deadpan snarker and loves ale more than his master.

ADDENDUM:
Does anyone notice that when Aria looked up to Cecily after she swore fealty, she looks like K-ON! character? In fact, Lisa always looks like a K-ON! character.

It is quite dumb that they held some demon sword show.. it seem that they purposely wanted to invite the demons and also why the man in black doesn't want to steal the sword in times when aria is sleeping or alone.

It's a good show but some of it seem to be quite stupid.

There wasn't that much in the first place though? Like, two scenes?

You sure? So far every close combat attack with Aria has made has been a thrusting one. Often one-handed, too. The only slashes were wind summoning, and even the big wind summoning in this episode was a thrust.

I only watched one or two episodes, but from what I remember that show was about superhumans and their brute power, wasn't it?
