@LHWKnight: Um kinda but with the any definitions their are regional variations. Some cultures see those fighting / battle + innocence words um very very different. Larger context tho in anime when henti is mixed into a fight scene it bring up older bugaboos about sex and violence. One can say it does not add to either when combined.

That said I liked the poke'mon battle harem that was Sekirei. The others mentioned I have not seen all the series. Do know Queens Blade was based on the old Lost World Fighting books tho.But I would point out humans are the only animals on this planet that can be noble an selfless , but rarely make the mark. Nor are humans the only critters to wage war/ fights / battles for selfish reasons either.

@takashichea: Its not just a mixed up world. But the one we breath in now has had cross mythology / religion all across the countries as well. Even today. Like I said one can see some one being offended by this anime on a faith based argument. Not my self tho but I can see how some one could be offended.

The trick not to is to understand the vast difference between fiction an faith. An no fiction can tear down ones true faith any way. Dame shame to many this day an age never learned that.

edit: Just to be clear. Mean that on a global scale not any one in particular on the boards .

@takashichea: Remember the German name for Odin is Woden or Wotan . An yeah their was some cross mythology tween Vikings, Norse, an Germans . Even the Nazi used Valhalla in propaganda in WW2. So yeah those Valkyries could well be their for the northern German mercs. As norther Germans at the time did belive in Valhalla. An good eye on the armor by the way thats right.

One could argue its just a crazy mixed up anime world. But other than the "church of heavens" the rest seems to fit the place fairly well. Not sure how well it will mirror things at the time but

@takashichea: Good witch is a staple of anime magic girl gene . Think of this story as long as some one believes the gods are there, they are. So its mixed up mythos a bit but not to out of hand.

Even western classics had a good witch or two...

@Bigheart711: I think we will for sure.

4 kinda won me over on sticking with this series. The animation is lacking at times but the story is fun enuff to look over that.

Episode 15 was about where I left off the manga when I heard it was gonna be a anime I stopped reading. The battle was less over all than the manga . less people fighting an less show of power difference. So from here on out I can not say how different this is from the manga. But I can say over 15 episodes it was well above 2/3rd of the manga accurate.

3 was ok. The animation took a hit here an there in it tho.

@takashichea: One of the things I liked about High School DxD was that it sorta poked fun at the power up over use. Looks like in this series tho reincarnation memories are the power up, saved by the bell, sort of thing.

@Destinyheroknight: Ack! Don't jinx it man, or at least do not give them ideas!

This series is making all the story info The Irregular at a Magical High School put forth as but a small spoon full of knowledge. Where as World Trigger seems to go the shot glass of a brain an a gallon of knowledge route. Some info will be lost along the way doing this.

@Destinyheroknight: Even with the um info filler it still is better than average by a hair. Maybe it will get to a point the info filler will dry up?

3 had a narrative that will irk some. Damed if you do noting damed if you do.

@Bigheart711: @Wraith: It looks like maybe all the mythos of gods are in this As we see in 3 they have a Celtic god Cernunnos more on it here http://www.pantheon.org/articles/c/cernunnos.html . This may be the old if you believe the gods live on thing. So there could well be gods from vikings to the old gods an all points in between. Still a lovely illustrated an animated story.

@takashichea: This is one of those shows that can be great as a fantasy story. Or looked upon as heresy from a faith stand point.

15 was epic!

@Wraith: 15 reminded me of the story of the injured snake an the girl who found it. http://www.gballard.net/lifes_lessons/girl_rattlesnake/ has the full story. But the part that rings out is ""You knew what I was when you picked me up,". The lord knew what Slaine was when he agreed to his terms last season.

Now with the Odin myth woven in I wonder If Slaine is named after http://www.2000adonline.com/books/slaine-the-horned-god.php it would be fitting.

@takashichea: The games are a metaphor . In the third episode they were playing with each others heart so it alluded to me some romance. Where as the 1st story had emotional pain an reflected it in the game of darts.

Madhouse would be wise to make things based on the games. A bowling shirt with the logo would be nice. The Logo for the game was sweet.

@takashichea: Well in Conan the time lines is little farther along . Hes bit more older an tricky. Most of this show is remakes of ova an Conan episodes it seems. By the end of the series he probably will have more confidence in flirting with girls.

Now since this series has done so well I wonder if the joke at the end of lupin vs conan movie will come true. Lupin vs Kid movie! Note how they mentioned Lupin in 15?

Episode 3 will keep me around for few more. But the show has already let the cat out of the bag on the "alien" real goal.
