The Sword of Uruk 01


From “boy meets girl” to “boy and girl meets loli”. Sounds REEEEEEEEEEEEALLY familiar… like a certain 2001 Gonzo series that was really popular over here.

That said, they’re introducing a shitload of new characters right from the start already. It’s also kinda sad to see Fatina having to eke out a living as a lame tour guide T_T. Looks like Gilgamesh really screwed them up.

The new loli is also irresistibly cute. Definitely a loli-fied Kaaya. Oh wait, she’s Kaaya’s MOTHER OR GRANDMOTHER. OMG LOL.

This time round, I do hope they explain the underlying motives and the big conspiracy behind some of the shadier characters of the series. Season 1 had quite a lot of hints and clues but it ended without any proper underlying explanation.

    I’d love to have a high school OVA like they have shown in the first OP and second one.

    Who is with me?

    PS> There was a big lack of Coopa in the episode.

    Vandread actually. First season was Hibiki meets Dita, then The Second Stage introduced Misty in the mix.

    @Kraker2k: They just keep teasing us with the OP don’t they? And yeah, serious lack of Coopa noted.

    I was actually thinking of Last Exile lol

    but well, I hope the series does not get a LOLGONZO end… … hopefully… though I doubt it.

    FMP was 2002….and somehow I doubt the line “boy meets girl, boy and girl meets loli” would prove true in the case of Tessa Testarossa.

    Mmmmm Tessa…..

    Hmm hate to admit it, but it does seem that it would lean to a JilxKaaya end;since he’s so motivated to save Kaaya >_>.. but i do hope it’d be JilxFatina; much more suitable. Oh plus the opening song was good too ^_^…but i prefer swinging, swinging~

    @ Kraker2k: Yeah, I’d watch a OVA about the High School opening.

    I personally liked the first series, despite a lot of it not being explained, and will be watching this one, too.
