I'm the only one exited about this amazing LN getting an adaptation?.
Also, Stella the best, just the best.
>In a time and place where one’s soul can be morphed into a weapon, there are modern-day magicians called Mage-Knights. Although Kurogane Ikki is a student at an institution that trains Mage-Knights, he has no particular talent in magic and is labeled the "Failure Knight" or "Worst One." Getting way less than average marks in the scorings, he was forced to repeat a year. But with the arrival of a new head of the institution, a new rule was created: knights whose abilities are compatible, as decided by the board, must share rooms and attend practice and training together throughout their school years to bring up their abilities to the max. It is a rule to implement the absolute verdict of ability.
>Ikki’s roommate, Stella Vermillion, turns out to be a princess of another foreign country. Stella is a Rank A knight: the type of genius in magic who only appears once a decade. When Ikki walked in on her while she was changing her clothes, it caused a huge misunderstanding (since neither yet knew of the new rule) which eventually ended up in a duel between the two of them. The punishment (or as some might see it, the prize) of the losing side is Eternal Submission to the winning side.
>Forced to live the same room and practice magic together throughout all their school years, how will Stella and Ikki’s relationship evolve?
>Japan wins WW2
>2nd page of the manga.
At least this series doesn't pretend to be something it isn't.
>Animated by IMS
Please... no more
I can't take any more abuse from IMS
I'll watch it. I couldn't give a shit about the WWII backstory, since it's completely irrelevant to the storyline. At least the LN is completely based on fighting, unless other LNs that have a decent premise but end up going to complete shit
Jesus fucking christ. Not even subtle.
Jesus christ this thread is full or retards who can't even read the fucking LN and throw retarded post like "is haremshit".
Just like every day in this shithole called /a/.
Anyway, for those who are interested on this LN, MC and Stella are already a couple since the end of vol1. At vol 3 MC wants to get married with Stella and she say "yes", vol 4 Stella wants the D and almost get if (fucking yandere imouto).
Yes it works in that way because Ikki doesn't even have a harem.
His GF is Stella (and they going to get married), also he had a sempai who helps him and a imouto and that's all.
>Three girls is the minimum for a harem
>one is MC's girlfriend
>one is his sister
>another girl is his personal trainer without any kind of love interest on him.
Are you this retarded?
I don't know if its the translations or japs can't write for shit, but any LN I've read was mind numbingly awful except Spice and Wolf. So after reading one manga chapter I can safely drop this.
People judge Boku Girl for the same reason, the fucking preview.
Now check every single thread of Boku Girl reach more than 1000+ post and ever they have translations every single week. Stop being retarded and judge the content only after reading it.
Hory sheet. Japs never had potential to win the war. Moment they attacked Pearl harbor their fate was sealed. Their industrial capacity wasnt even half US's. Its not like with Germany where if some things went other way they could've won.
-Tsundere European princess main girl who is his partner and roommate and falls in (tsundere) love with MC after he defeats her and then she learns about his tragic past, which makes her feel for him. It's got WAY too much of one of my most-hated sexist tropes in anime to it, "she falls in love with the guy who defeated her because what the 'strong woman' actually wants is a stronger man". That was one of the major reasons why Cecelia is worst girl in IS, for example.
-An overpowered protagonist. "Worst" is a complete lie, this guy is ultra-powerful but of course few people recognize that. He can also pretty much instantly copy attack abilities by seeing them used in combat, and despite having weak magic power can turn super-powerful for one minute because he's just that determined and trained himself for it. He's a "failure" who can beat the strongest knights! Why do these shows keep try8ing to come up with these awful superpowered "failures", it's completely absurd. I don't like it when they overpower these protagonists so much while trying to claim that they are "underdogs". It doesn't work.
Etc. Ep. 1 basically goes like this: 1) "I will kill you for walking in on me and seeing me in my underwear!" 2) He soundly defeats her with his super-ability 3) She learns his tragic past 4) He comes to in their room after the fight with her straddling him and feeling his muscles in his sleep.
(Oh yeah, and MC's grandfather is the swordbearing samurai who won WWII. How, I have no idea.)
So yeah, it's a terrible series. On the other hand, this show could have some comically dumb moments. The bit that happens after #4 on that list there sure kind of was. So maybe I'll try the anime despite knowing that it's completely awful. It's always easy to drop these shows when they're unwatchably bad, such as Unlimited Fafnir this season. Dropped that after a few episodes.
Why would anyone be excited about what will mostly likely be a 1 cour low budget ad for the LN's? Even if the source material gets better it's unlikely for the anime to get to that point.
Real life women actually do want that, and any that say they don't are lying. Reality isn't sexist, you just want it to be.
>Cecelia is worst girl in IS
I will fucking fight you.
Are you basing that on postwar claims so he doesn't get hanged, where they spun it like he was pushed into it or was there someone other than him who gave the order to attack.
>"she falls in love with the guy who defeated her because what the 'strong woman' actually wants is a stronger man"
She's actually empathizing with his adversity, but go ahead and delude yourself.
Why are people so pissed off that this series has Japan win in WW2? Have none of you ever read or watched an alternative universe/ timeline series before?
It's not even a big point from what we've seen in the series so far. It's just for establishing setting for the MC.
Yes, because magic samurai have absolutely no way how they could change the course of history, right?
On top of that, what if he was just a diplomat that pushed for the right things? Could be unrelated to his fighting ability entirely. We just don't know.
MC has mutual relationship with the main girl. Even goes so far as to propose her.
And thats the only "good" thing about it.
