Well that was fairly interesting, despite the reading-books battle part.
Miyukichi looks set to really shine in here, with her haughty voicing of Dalian that I’ve not heard since her Shinku in Rozen Maiden. But surprisingly, Ono Daisuke is the show-stealer here with his cool portrayal of Huey. A male protagonist that doesn’t complain or shout about how crazy shit starts going when he finds a beautiful young maiden in his grandfather’s cellar and instead inadvertently insults her, followed by making tea and lunch? This show is already better than the rest of the shows this season by virtue of that already! Not to mention he’s a distinguished pilot, a noble and also doesn’t freak out when dragons attack. It’s almost cheating!
I wonder who’s the pink haired lotus-head character though. Please don’t tell me knowledge-hoarding demons are supposed to look like that.
