Not having played the game, I don’t how this anime matches up to it’s counterpart, but it’s not a bad start for an adaptation.
Story is pretty much the standard JRPG-style, out protagonist being Luke, son of a noble and said to bring great prosperity bla bla bla. A series of events leads him to meet a girl, Tear, and our story begins from here. Not much else I can say that hasn’t been said by the wiki anyways.
Production values seem pretty high and I hope it maintains it that way. One thing I find pretty refreshing is how the characters interact with each other, and there is an air of maturity over most of the characters in the episode, except for Luke with his childishness, although it’s justifiable based on his upbringing and it’s not annoying.
Even when he gets blasted away along with Tear, they choose to cooperate with each other instead of doing all the usual bickering that accompanies the initial encounters of such kind, even actually fighting off monsters together. While Tear sure looks like a cool, icy type, she seems to have a reasonable head on her as well. It’s somehow, moe~, XD.
One thought I have though, is that Luke’s fiancee and Tear should’ve switched seiyuus. Somehow, Yukana fits the ojou-sama image more, while Michiko Neya would sound perfect as the cool Tear. Of course, both of them are actually doing a good job of their characters, just something I feel as a fan of both seiyuus.
OP and ED, didn’t make much impact on me, though the OP felt quite a bit long and in the tradition of Sunrise works, extremely spoilerish. Tons of foreshadowing is to be found in it.
