While I get some of the physical similarities....I never saw Izzy in the first two episodes and thought of Saber. Seems much more her own amusing character than directly drawing from any specific character out there.

So far I'd say she is the best part of this show. Of course not happy about her lack of aging, but also willing to fully take advantage of it. No problem either causing some havoc in the classroom and of course not intimidated by the MC because she knows she can demolish him .

Things have certainly gotten busy in a hurry though. Using some brainwashing to control the childhood friend to use her as a weapon. Curious tactic, but so far so good on its effectiveness.

Things heated up rather quickly. That princess is trying to take over the country and one of her followers is apparently controlling the childhood friend.

I also never really got the whole Izzy= Saber impression. I never really look at Izzy and had Saber immediately come to mind.

Ep2 feels kinda fast what with the sudden dump of characters. Oh well, better get the character introductions off first so the plot can take over.

Surprised they were able to maintain the quality of work with only slight drops here and there.

Despite the good fights and action, the episode itself is still not hitting the right point. The pacing is really fast, there is literally no information or explanations aside for the 15 seconds where they actually talk about the tattoos and on top of that we have zero introduction of characters.

That being said, this series is going by the rule of 3.

Well, not surprised with childhood friend's fate. The OP was obvious about that.

Izzy doesn't remind me of Saber but more like Nao from Charlotte.

So what's wrong with being stuck looking like a high schooler? I'd agree it would be bad stuck as a middle schooler or younger but high school? Almost the peak of your physical strength and youthful beauty...nothing wrong with that!

not really as we see her problem is which she will be forever a "small breasts" type and in japan this is a hug deal :P we already see how this hard affect her by how jelly she was toward the other girl.

Episode 2:
Wow, so Princess Aryabahta wanted the Void Maker and take over the world after killing her own parents huh? Damn, things got escalated pretty quickly!

Still, I'm worried about Seigi's childhood friend now that she's brainwashed by one of Aryabahta's followers.

The show keeps entertaining me. Another good episode and I have to say that the humor is working just fine with me, it reminded me of prison school a bit, both in style and tempo.
Izzy didn't remind me of anyone honestly, but the better comparison I concur is Nao from Charlotte.
I'm fine even with the fast pace.
And surprisingly I like the childhood friend too. I'm bit worried for her, but I doubt they will ever kill her.
Fight choreography is instead detailed how I like it.

Why is her reaction is always to kick Seigi's ass? We get it, she's a badass. And did no one else find the adult woman in a child's body molesting the childhood friend disturbing?

Then again, not as disturbing as Viper.

Izzy becomes a new transfer student, that's such a classic.

I can't get enough of Izzy antics, she hilarious. Also I like how smoothly she can switch between comical and badass.

I hope Seigi gets a bit less whiny as time goes on, because he sure whines a lot right now.

So tattoos are ancient technology? That at least explains why not much is understood about them.

The Princess is a total monster, isn't she? And her subordinates don't seem any better.

Ugh, Touko was sticking her nose where it doesn't belong and got in trouble and now she'll have to be saved. Why do I get a feeling that it will happen fairly frequently?

Aww yeah, Izzy is about to kick some ass. Should be awesome.

About the age you'd expect. Don't remember if they ever come right out and say (it's rude to ask a lady her age, anyway), but you'll get a pretty good idea before too long.

I suppose she's in her late 30s or early 40s...?

Anyway, this Anime is a bit weird. I get the impression that it's a SoL with super powers, then it gets "gory" and random people die.

I like it, but I'm not sure with which lens I should watch this.

I have no idea where you got the first impression from. It's very obviously plot-based.

Maybe... I dunno... when the first "bad" guy showed up. The MC was more or less getting his ass kicked and the other 2 were chilling around.

Then... BOOM, first blood.

The blue Saber is definitely the soul of this show. She is really funny and at the same time badass when the situation demands it. The grabbing boobs part was unnecessary and pointless tho...
The battle animation is still fantastic and i expect to see nice fights in the following episodes. The powers variety seems to be interesting too. However, i'm not sure if i like to see a loli/teen-like character as the main villain... but that's just me that prefers to see more adult characters instead of kids

Saber Izzy is easily the cutest girl in the entire show, and she is resourceful as well. Making makeshift grenade from magic - very smart. I can see after three episodes that her personality indeed shifts more toward Rin but she still has a lot of Saber traits and personality as well. So she is a mix - like Dark Rin.

And yeah, young Velvet took lessons from Kiritsugu very well. He started training and he is really getting himself into it. Reminds me of someone else familiar... from now on he will be Emiya Velvet. xD

I like how show portrayed antagonists as people who have personality rather than your average "we are the bad guys" trope. Little assassin and pervert guy may be the bad guys of the show but I really feel sympathy toward them after show gave them a little screen time.

So far so good, sitting up and waiting for more. I wonder when will next Fate-related thing show up...

Do they have personality? The princess seems pretty look how warmonger dictator evil i am to me.

umbrella loli is okay, but cares for this kitten, she's not black isn't much. And being picked up off the street isn't a personality.

Episode 3:

Yeah, I'm still finding the comedic timings of the episode/show to be strange and not entirely funny, only occasionally.

On the other side, I kinda like the action of the show. JC Staff seems to know what they're doing on the technical front this season. Looks like we'll probably get Izzy's friend fighting soon. I think it's also obvious that Touko has feelings for Justice (not surprising though).

That little girl who possessed Touko this episode is implied to be weaker than Izzy as well. Doesn't seem like she is totally emotionless since she cares about animals.

Princess: smart, resourceful, dedicated, sadistic and ruthless. She is also bisexual ( presumably, she might be lesbian ) and love to put people beneath her and loves to see them struggle for survival. Her personality is that of spoiled evil brat who is set for world domination.

Little loli: she is most probably an orphan, which points toward hard childhood. She was probably tortured or worse meaning that she probably have a lot of mental scars. She is dedicated, cold, have moral system that she devises according to her view of world, determined and also carrying. Her personality is that of poor and tortured unfortunate little girl.

And all of this in only 3 episodes and less than 15 minutes of screen-time for both. If this is not build up for personality I don't know what is...

I don't get anime fans everywhere wanting new Shinji from Evangelion in every anime so much that they fail to detect any other personality traits with all characters.
