Female Black Knight was introduced waaaaay too early and her first appearance was not so good.
When that happened in the game I shat a skyscraper full of bricks.

And Kukuri is already... well she may become this animes original character DO NOT STEAL.
Game Kukuri is much different ;_;

Humm... maybe I will wait for the full version of Arrival of Tears, but for some reason, it doesn't go completely like its precedessors... perhaps the slow start? Well Ayane is again performing nicely, so it is nice for its own merits. For the moment, Endless > Lunatic > Arrival for me I guess.

Anyway, after watching the 2 episodes, it is kinda a bag of mixed feelings but certainly not a bad adaptation at all.
First of all, quality wise, I'm surprised the series got smooth animation (considering how VN/bishoujou/eroge adaptations are usually the bottom of the bucket in the budget department), with a lot of original game BGM, remixed in a good way (the Red Night one, while a bit slow, kept its creepy factor).

That said, like many mentioned, they really weren't frugal with the fanservice (I mean... there were almost a dozen in ep1, and ep2, you have a supposed very critical scene, then a conveniently ripped skirt )

The only problem is... like many players mentioned already, a lot of changes were done, which are kinda weird tbh.
Spoiler for no real spoiler, but can point out few things:


That being said, I'm rather happy they avoided "FULL EMO" Kakeru, because he was basically a disturbed mop for a long moment
Misuzu is still classy as ever, and it seems they made Yuka a bit more active and less helpless for the time being. Yukiko is... well, just like usual (meh >_>). And too bad we don't get Master's "mai waifu!" antics.
If they take such liberties to modify the plot, I hope they will clean up the last part of it

Two tangentially related and yet both sort of cool bits of news:

The first is that the series' web radio show has begun. Hosted by Chiaki Takahashi (Saiko-sensei) with various guest stars. The first episode has Daisuke Ono.

The second is that Pixiv user "Zouazarashi" looks to have gotten something of a promotion. He drew little fan webcomics starring the Black Knights back when 11eyes was still new, and now he's drawing them for the show's official site. That's pretty cool.

Neat, thanks for letting us know about that. I'll check it out!

Blar. I guess we're in the 'lets introduce the other girls' mode so far, with little development to the plot otherwise. Oh well, as to be expected, hehehehe.

Just like fujoshis can see yaoi moments where most people see none, het shippers like me can blow up certain thing over just so we can SQUEE about them. We don't really care if it's actually TRUE romantic implications, we're just happy enough that there exists moments that can be interpreted as such in a certain way. As long as canon doesn't say otherwise, that is...

I mean, for once, it's the male who's more devoted to his female childhood friend, and this change of pace from the archetype has filled me with glee. This is because normally, this would mean that devoted person is romantically interested to the other. And even though it's not necessarily true (protagonist might be devoted to Yuka for a whole lot of other reasons), I'm perfectly happy with the thought that this devotion has a possibility that it stems from romantic love... assuming the protagonist shows no other interest (or at least not in that magnitude) towards the other girls lol.

Was I the only one who thought it was a bit funny how after Misuzu had a look at his eye, she was touching her stomach.

Kakeru: My power is... you now have my baby.
Misuzu: Oh my god, this isn't funny!

Some of the more dirty minded ones would be thinking that Kakeru has the power to a_ _ _ _ e her, but was too unobservant to realize.

ROFL, YES. Especially after watching that episode of Scrubs the other day with the glowing uterus.

You're taking it too seriously.

But really, no one even tried to speculate what Misuzu was thinking there?

Probably that Kakeru's power is really broken. Should he actually awaken it, he'll pwn all the Black Knights easily.

Something like that, Mizuno?

I just want more of that twintail loli with twin swords, from the looks she is simply awesome

Also did I mention that I love chains with swords blades attached?

Some random notes:
Kakeru is holding Misuzus sword in the OP
Misuzu has red/black and black swords in OP
The nurse = the woman with two swords and kimono in the ED?
twintail loli = Kukuri?

Wrong.

Amusingly I thought that too before I played the game.

Hint for Eisdrache:
Spoiler:

Of course, that's just my theory. I haven't reached that point in the game yet.

This was a pretty good episode, I'm really liking the soundtrack for this show, I may have to acquire the opening and closing songs when they're released. Wow that one girl has Saya's sword from Blood+ only with out the gemstone. The school nurse smoking still cracks me up, it's something I've never seen before.

Smoking is only a small part of the humor she contributes in the game. I'd like to see the part where she comes into class half-assedly as a replacement and just tells them its self-study.
