Also forgot to ask if anyone else thought that Metal, Ragon, and Rudra reminded them of Malon, especially the one with similar hair colour. Although it is probably just me.

There's an extremely vague physical resemblance, but not enough that I noticed it. Also, their names come to "Metal Dragon" according to a CR comment.

A beach episode, and a very welcome one too. they all look good, and spoiler[Leviatan doubled in size] as well. And it looks like it also answers a previous question. The scales are underwear, but how does that work? do they put them on/take em off one at a time or is some sort of scalemail?

Episode 5

It is not a beach episode until spoiler[a tentacle creature has defiled a girl in some way]. I like how their powers were used from preparing the food, to lighting the barbecue, to pouring the drinks. And Syrop being hit by the beachball

Trying to think of another anime series to compare this to, I came to the idea of Disgaea, but without the good vs evil thing and a little to older audiences. You can just sit back and enjoy.

The OP and ED are so good. Oh, some new anime songs were released... sadly none from Leviathan.

Now I see why I hung around...some mysterious attractive brother?!? Lets see more of that please. Smile
With the way this show seems to meander through things though, I doubt it will be as I hope, but still.

And Ep 5 lived up to that. Remember Bahamut was spoiler[accosted by that little octopus]?

Oh nice, her brother is actually kind of spoiler[girly-looking]. I suspected he was going to be a bishounen, but also more on the masculine, brotherly side.

It's 2013. Why do people still waste money to make an absolute crap series like this one? Confused

Sorry, but I just watched the first episode, and I just can't understand how can anyone watch a show like this and not be bored to death.

Sounds like you need to spend some more time to learn about people, so you can better understand them in the future.

Well some people enjoy cute shows that are not depressing or too taxing on your noggin. This has been better than some attempts like Shukufuku no Campanella and Shining Hearts.

Episode 6

They had too destroy the giant beetle monster because it spoiler[ruined their barbecue], is there any harsher crime. I noticed a pretty extended transformation sequence so this particular episode felt like it was drawing out time rather than having much substance, especially since episodes are a few minutes shorter than other anime. At least Syrorin Syrop got some moments like not entirely being happy with their motivation, and being treated differently to the other girls.

My first thought with the mysterious boy was: spoiler[Why does Leviathan's brother look like a kid]?

Just curious do you bully people at school or work? I say that because you know, it's a free country people can watch what they want and personally I don't care what your understanding is of others and what they enjoy.

Some of us just aren't as easily bored by things as others are. I don't need my shows to be non-stop action to hold my attention.

Well, you don't understand me at all. Action scenes is the thing that's very boring to me. To give you an example, a movie called Redline (which is hyped a lot) was very boring to me. What I actually really like is characters talking. I like when characters show their ideals, motivations, beliefs, when they show that they have brains! To give you an example, at the time I was watching the first season of Fate/ZERO at about 5-6 episodes I was very bored. It was all about the setting (which just wasn't all that interesting to me) and action. But then, absolutely fantastic episode 11 happened, which consisted almost entirely of characters just talking. For me, it was probably the best thing of the entire first season.

I'm sorry if I came off rude, but I'm also very suprised that you ask a question like this. It's scary how one a bit negative comment can make such wrong impression about the person. To answer your question: No, I don't. I'm actually one of the quiet types at school (but not one that can easily be bullied).
I was just irritated, because I find absolutely no value in these kind of shows.

Well it was pretty clear from you anime list the sort of shows you most like, good talking shows with philosophy can be great, but there is nothing wrong with a cute show every so often, they can be rather clever in a different way. Sometimes can require a little patience.

I have probably brought it up a lot, but a certain show I enjoyed last the other season was Busou Shinki which was essentially little robot girls going on adventures and trying to help their master. It was surprisingly enjoyable as being kind of Saturday morning cartoon like, but enough self awareness to appeal to adults. The OP also quickly became a favourite of mine. And before that there was Sengoku Collection, which on the outside looked like a pure cute show that even played on the whole magical girlfriend thing, but the experience was much deeper. Instead you got a large collection of stories with almost a different heroine an episode, generally homages which could go from the melancholic to the thought provoking to the cute, to the utterly emotional, and probably one of top OP songs.

My point is that you should not just judge a series on how much it is not like Death Note, or Madoka. These series know what they are, and they can be surprisingly fun. I probably put these shows into some sort of Dusky list, shows that don't garner a huge amount of interest, but I still think are very good, and tend to be funny if you know what to look for.
