Hmm, for some reason, it looks kind of kiddy and shounen-ish. It doesn't seem to be popular at all here. But it seems interesting so I'm anticipating the first episode.

The art seems really pretty, so I think I'll definitely check it out when it airs. However, I just can't get rid of that "Zero no Tsukaima?" feeling. ( You know, girls who do magic and a dude wearing a jacket and wielding a sword type of feeling. )

It's based on a Japanese RPG system apparently.
I wonder if the game is gonna ever get released overseas.

Most likely not, since it takes lots of time to translate all of the texts in those games, since it's so intensive on reading ^_^, yes... reading .

Overall the artwork looks rather nice which is a good thing

I just watched the trailer, it actually seems to be promising, especially the animation. Now I cannot wait for this!

Watched the trailer, and so far it seems like 'typical shounen' show. Oh well - need some no brainer action as well to balance out all my slower paced shows, so this might just do the trick.

So far I only agree with the above posters. It looks interesting enough to give it a try.

It aired and actually, I thought it was a ton of fun. Art was really dodgy in a few places, but I love how they wrote Hiiragi's character... constantly put upon to go fight monsters instead of going to school instead of the normal whiny reluctant hero. The whole thing was a lot more tongue in cheek than I was expecting too, and a lot of it came out very well. Thumbs up from me.

Caps and OP

I thought i watch the 1st ep and drop it quickly. But i was very surprised as I enjoyed it throughout. This is something i'll definetly follow through out. Does anybody know how many ep this is going to have?

One thumb up! Not my kind of shounen cheese. I'll watch the 2nd episode, but I don't think I'll be compelled enough to continue on. The ending theme is pretty nice.

To answer UPR's question, considering this is a shounen series aimed toward the "kids", there probably won't be a number attached to give an episode count. Like a lot of shounen genre, if it does well among its target audience, (kids) then the show will go on for a while. If not, then.. oh well.

I really liked the fantasy vibe given off from this series ^_^ It even has the smell of F/SN to me for some reason. And so another unsuspecting hero rises - and from the looks of it, it is going to be one heck of an adventure to fill out all of the jewels on that braclet O.O

- lol @ the evil loli

Ok so the opening was really good and catchy thats a +1
But I hope this doesnt become a bust like Shining Tears. ep 1 was good to say the least but I dont have high expectations for this and so I'll give it more episodes

I hope not. I want it to get to the point and not go One Piece or Naruto on use.

Deltora Quest!?

I wasn't planning to watch this, but in the end I did. It wasn't too bad. The comedy was funny and the opening theme was enjoyable (one of the last parts of the opening theme sounded like Nanoha StrikerS's opening theme.........) . Other than that, it still sounds and looks stereotypical. I'll still watch it though. I pray the show doesn't become Shining Tears. Actually, there's no way... I think.

Collect the gems and save Deltora the world.

...

Hai or Yes?

Not bad first ep. I don't like the female characters at all but the rest is decent/good. Reminded me of Shining Wind (game) quite a bit though even down to the fact they have a Miko named Kureha who uses a bow.

I don't know, I just listened to the opening and am not finding it remarkable like other people, and in some places I find it downright painful (Idol Singing.....yeah). The openings this season are just not matching up to the Spring and Summer ones. It's like all that progress/recovery in Japanese Music is slowly being reversed. Still, it looks like it's worth a few episodes to try though.

Well, i went in to this without expecting much, and i pretty much got what i expected Pretty much generic shounen cheeZe. The fight against the skeleton army was painful to watch (whole bunch standing in the background while only 1 skeleton attacks at a time ...not to mention they looked retarded). I half expected the girl with the big gun to go "Heave Barrel. Fire!"

The OP and ED was the best thing about this. Well ... decent enough to keep watching. Besides, i need some action fix to balance out all the romance shows i am watching ... though i am not sure about the quality of this particular fix
