I dropped the show after 3 or 4 episodes severally disappointed. Though looking as its discussed actively, would like your feedback? Did it improve later on? Worth giving it a try if didn't liked first episodes?

In my opinion, it really hasn't changed much. Animation, censoring, chidishness all about the same. They did stop the stock animation, but they use still images now. BUT, but, but, episode 15 looks really really good, so it may just be budget. Which I wouldn't understand, since So Ra No Wo To looks darn good.

You're comparing So Ra No Wo To to Fairy Tail in terms of budget?

One is a 12 episode (I think) show that's a flagship work in a brand new anime timeslot for TV Tokyo called "Anime no Chikara" (Anime Power!) highlighting original animation...
The other is a 52+ episode long running shounen show aimed at adolescent boys...

So if Soranowoto looks really good, that's because someone is paying for it to look really good.

I mean, that's like complaining that Shugo Chara doesn't look as good as Macross F, just because they're both animated by Satellite...

Sorry but this an anime-only discussion thread, feel free to post about the manga in the Manga thread instead
Was actually debating whether that deserved spoiler tags or not, but I undeerstand. As for the anime, the quality of story has gone up I suppose, as it was kind of meant too. It feels like, almost as if this anime has a niche it isnt fulfillling. I mean, I love the manga and the anime has been faithful so far, but it would be harder to get addicted to this show if you only watched the anime. Atleast thats my impression.


Anywho, time for episode 13, I was behind.(BTW, I thought it was awkward at first, but Haooy's VA has grown on me.)

If you didn't like the characters, then don't pick it up again. If you cringed at the magic circles and still frames, they're working on it, slowly but steadily...time will tell

Yeah they are slowly making progress there. That small encounter with Natsu and Lyon was more fluid with less magic circles. Hopefully they keep it up as the series progresses.

Just a pic of Lucy I drew for some reason.

I originally posted this at the manga thread, but found that the image was messed up from resizing. I re-uploaded it so I decided to post it here as well.

Love your Lucy CA. Good to see you've focused on a certain part of her body, that seems spot on.

Spoiler for Lucy:
That's a great portrayal of Lucy!

You should do one of Erza now. It's not fair for the Erza fans.

After listening to the OST a few good times, its def one of the best OSTs I've heard in along time.

Main theme is just epic and the other character themes are great, especially Gray and Erza's.
Dark Guild is another really cool song.
Well I won't go on as it's just easier to list the whole OST as epic

Its kinda like a mix of Braveheart, LotR and rock music.
I usually say if you want epic it has to be stings and wind, nothing like a good orchestra to get the blood pumping but this has other elements thrown in which in most cases don't work out so well but not here, simply amazing stuff.

Well episode 14 was great, with the arrival of Erza, to the story, Grey standing up to her was awesome. I'm also wondering how someone can no longer be with us, but still be alive, Hmm. "evil" Plue was awesome, as was Natsu's plan to tip the temple, I'd also like to see that picture of Erza C.A. that one of Lucy is very well done.

The lyrics to the ending song were more melancholic than I thought they would be. But that fits with this episode.I can't imagine how bad the first ending song would have sounded then.
While the lyrics make the first song sound even more happy.
Spoiler for Episode 15:

Spoiler for Episode 15:
Yeah, when I translated the ending it took me a bit to realize what it was really "about"... which is coping with your girlfriend leaving you not because she doesn't love you, but because she can't take being with you anymore for her own personal reasons.
Let's just say that hit a bit too close to home for me...

Meanwhile the opening is filled with words that are half Japanese and half english, or maybe just some other language entirely!

I like this episode on Grey's past.... but somehow, I just didn't get any emotional punch! It was supposed to be melancholic and sad, but.. uhhh. I think it might just be the animation and the drawing style. All seems too bright and comical. Maybe if they put in a few more episodes on character development, that history might deliver more emotional impact.

nice episode, loved the music. it was nicely done the part of deliora
i think that in 3 episodes or 4 this arc will be finished and phantom lord arc!

here there are the guild cards that appear in the manga at the start of some chapters, i will put the ones which appear until the manga episode that has been animated.

Spoiler for lots of them, don't think they have spoilers:
