is the chaika series any good?, I tend to believe that it's just an "ebin meme" from some shitposters.
Its not bad,its not great, it's good
Generic fantasy anime where a a party of generic people go on a quest to obtain generic items for a generic purpose. The show went from okay to extremely bad after the main villain was revealed.
The last two episodes that were anime original?
Atleast they had one good one-liner.
The island arc was alright because it had both Chaikas together and actually tried to follow the LN
Such a shame she never got to do anything
Mini Freddy was the most surprising and funny thing that happened during all that season.
It's not bad but it's very unsatisfying. Chaika is cute, there are some badass moments and Freddie jobs all the time, which is hilarious but the story and other characters are overall pretty boring. Watch it for the memes and Chaika.
She was only awful as an accessory to the cast, her character itself was fine. She was basically a moody get out of jail free card so she removed any real feeling of danger from the show.
its one of the few shows to feature magical guns. that alone is enough for me to love it. also the ED of season one is wicked good. overall id say it was an 8/10 series, i thoroughly enjoyed it and could sympathize with some of the characters so it connected with me pretty well. not for everyone but id say give it a shot, if after episode 3 you dislike it id say drop the whole thing.
