I love the way in which the world of magic is presented in this anime. There's not really much power scaling shounen stuff that typically accompanies the setting and neither Chise nor Elias are so powerful that they aren't beholden to the rules of the world. It allows the world feel so much more vast because of how much out there is on the same footing as the main cast instead of only a select few being even capable of harming them. It also makes the tension feel more real in that the threats of the neighbors are in no way empty, and a mistake could cause irreparable harm. Take Ashen Eyes for instance, his presence makes any scene more tense from the fact that his whims are all that protect Chise.


Does S2 get better? I quit watching after a couple episodes because it looked like it was turning into a school life arc.

I'm still only halfway through, but I definitely felt it got better from my initial impressions that it'd be some sort of Harry Potter thing. Although there is a bit of schooling here and there, it doesn't completely overshadow everything else. Still plenty of moments with Chise and Elias, and I don't mind any of the newer cast from the school. They sorta provide a different, more typical sorcerer, perspective on the life we've seen Chise leading.


The arc was fine, but I'm not as enthusiastic to watch it after reading. It is a notable tone shift, but it still fits in with the lore. I'll probably watch it through one day when I'm bored

Well there's definitely no shortage of European folklore despite the new college setting. I've grown to enjoy it as the first half has come to a close and the mystery is more interesting than I thought I'd see in an arc like this. My only real issue is that I need to wait until the fall now for the conclusion but that's fine, I can wait, but it certainly doesn't feel like anything's been concluded at this halfway stopping point.

So how was it in comparison to the first season or whatever you would call it? School stuff makes me a lot less interested in it to be honest.


In comparison to the first season there's a bit less wonder and awe at the world given it's a school setting, but the mystique of the folklore is still there. It doesn't suddenly turn into high school drama but instead the plot turns to focus more around a string of incidents occurring in the school with a variety of different things at play to keep the culprit somewhat hidden. More of a mystery in that sense.

I enjoy it so far. Chise is learning more to grow on her own and be somewhat less reliant on Elias for everything, alongside learning the value of her own self. While Elias is more learning to interact with others and figuring out more how to be human as he finds Chise making him more aware of feelings he never realized he had.

Problem, /qa/?


who's this master japester? this beguiling flim-flammer?


Now there's a "whodunnit" sort of theme to the 2nd part after the conclusion of the first. With some promise to flesh out the students of the college more, and a really nice opening for it all. Although I wonder just how spoilery it is.


I might get around to watching it eventually. Maybe. the school setting, though, bleh. That's like turning Precure into a bunch of divorced adults.


The most disappointing thing about that show is that Nagisa and Honoka were not married!
