Still I dislike how the start series this way, but Im pretty sure it will resolve in the next episode or 4th.

I think the light novels did a better job of explaining this...

I figured I'd translate the prologue from Volume 1. It really does a much, much, much better explanation of the whole "imprint" stage.

Spoiler for vol.1 prologue:

But so far, pretty good.

My guess is pretending it is the same thing as the level system in TAMnI. Even then, I might be wrong.

Ryuuji is a disappointing main character so far. He is insensitive to others and is emo about his own concerns. So far, he hasn't shown any impressive traits, either. He let the girl he hurt emotionally save him and could do nothing about it.

I do hope his attitude changes soon, or else he will be the most disappointing protagonist since Kouichi from Kurogane no Linebarrels.

I don't mind a flawed character at first, so his actions this episode didn't bother me. And from the preview it looks he won't stay in his emo stage for long...

Also I couldn't help but see some resemblances to Dragonaut. Expect Eriko's boobs are way too small...

Im really going to hope being a level 10 breaker means nothing without something to use because if he could have done something but instead decided to just get his butt whooped and let them take Rose thats just sad. Only thing I can think of is that higher level breaker you are the more power you get out of lost precious or whatever which I guess would give him a reasonable out for why he sat there and got beat.

Being a breaker doesn't mean much if you don't have your lost precious. Pretty much what a breaker is, is the english name for "遺物使い " that the author chose. Those kanji pretty much mean something like "Legendary Artifact User", and the author calls them "Breakers"

It's ranked 1-10 (i think). What the levels mean, is your ability to use and control Lost Precious Artifacts, 遺物 . (the first two kanji in the word above, so "Legendary Artifacts" - it is the author who coins the term "Lost Precious.")

so, Ryuuji is a rank 10 breaker, which means he can use S-rank Lost Precious items.

...

Lol Black Dragon... The only thing that went through my mind was-

"Nefarian? Is that you ?!"


Oh yeah, and very disappointing Ryuuji, you have just fallen slightly behind the MC 'standard', that was completely uncalled for lashing out at Rose.

I didn't like much dragonaut so I didn't even remember it or see the resemblance. I can only think is "what the heck is Izahaya doing here?"

Thanks for a bit on clarification from the novel part because I haven't touch it yet.

I'm also thinking that the level is something got to do with the affinity or how much power one can drew out from a lost precious.

For novel readers it might be rushed but for me. I felt contented on the phasing. And maybe a bit slow because too much emo. Hate emo MC and useless one that doesn't fight back.

But the episode 3. Did look promising and will wait for more.

Rose's voice and character design, and Erika's voice and personality, continue to be good. But the whole thing wasn't done all that well, and sank to kid's cartoon level from time to time. I don't mind Ryuuji's quite sensible aversion to Lost Precious affairs, and to his mother. Clearly, we're being set up for him to become more of a hero as we go on. A character that has normal fears and aversions is a lot more interesting than a perfect hero from a children's story. But this show in general may not hold my attention that long.

Ryuji is your average normal guy MC to me and I got no problem with that. I just hope there's a good reason behind why he is one of seven Level 10 Breakers or it'll get ridiculous. That Izaya ehh I mean Onyx was able to 'rescue' (more like abduct) Rose was great, she better stay abducted for the next whole episode as well or the impact of the villain's success level over one thing will be crushed too early and again it'll become ridiculous. I didn't like the doc's loud voice, the mom was a bit annoying, too so I see that Ryuji is going through a lot of 'meh'. Rose suddenly able to speak was, well, sudden. lol But nothing bad I guess. The episode was good but could have been done better imo.

A new level? No, it's been done before. The Wallflower used stick figures occasionally to add comedy and save costs. (Zombie-Loan also used stick figures every once in a while for comedy but because the stick figures scenes were that way in the original manga, I don't include them in the category of cost-cutting animation.)
