I liked SnB, but I will admit that this gets filed under the "Guilty Pleasure" for the season.

Art was good, animation was good, and fights were exciting. Plot was holey and stunk of "They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot", with so much more that could have been done with just the "Lisa" line that they just... dropped. I can't speak to adaptation, though I wouldn't mind curling up with a copy of a light novel or two just to see the differences.

Overall: 5/10 (7/10 if you are like me and find this kind of thing a GP) A fair to middling anime that's worth watching if you miss some fantasy cliches, but has no absolutely spectacular aspects. Production values were good too, but not awesome enough to warrant watching on that reason alone. If you don't really love fantasy plots, pass on this one.
