Because we need a thread for this awesome series!

...and, done.

So yeah, awesome first episode. Dalian is love, and the atmosphere of the show is flat-out stunning. I'm a sucker for these kinds of period-works, though.

There's only one episode of the anime out so far, but I HIGHLY recommend this to an anime fan.

Not sure if I like Flamberge's design in the anime (can't really see Hal's so no commento on him) OP.

http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/7499/bmdd1251.png

http://img638.imageshack.us/img638/8635/flambergevol6263.png

Her design in the novels looks more like a straightjacket then a dress (according to descriptions of her in the novels- while she is wearing something like a dress it's supposed to be more of a straightjacket and actually even the frills on the dress itself is supposed to make it more confining however that's designed). Which is a lot cooler then the anime design- which looks like a dress with the sleeves tied behind her back.

Crown
July 22nd, 2011, 10:24 PM
If I'm to give my opinion, I liked more the LN designs too, the manga draws were good as well, though they made Dalian look older than she looks in the original work. And I'm really fine with the anime design.

Fuck, I want to see my Rasiel or else I'll ragequit. A few seconds is not enough.

Each of the different Yomihime's have different lines.

And about designs: well, I was mainly complaining about how they swapped out a armored/reinforced straightjacket for a dress with the hands tied behind the back + a lock in the middle of the chest.

But yeah, if you wanna get more general on designs I prefer the LN designs (well, technically I liked Hughey's concept art that was in the magazines for anime previews but it turned out quite a bit different in actual animation) but I can hardly think of a time when I haven't.

"Is it really okay? Isn't this your breakfast...?"
"You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours, right? Accept it without reservation. Oh, or do you not like potatoes?"
The girl shook her head to the peasant's words.
She stretched out her hands equipped with protectors and accepted the warm potatoes.
"Thank you..."
She whispered and bit into the potato. Then she stuffed her cheeks wordlessly for a while.
Before long she raised her face when her potato shrunk to about the half of its size. She smiled with a face appropriate to her age, and with pour and potato peel all over the region around her lips.

I use Faststone Image Viewer. Free, and it works well. Try not to make the gif too big, length-wise or framesize-wise.

Basic tutorial: Take a screenshot of each frame you want. Put them all in a folder with nothing else in it.

Open FSIV, find the folder you put all the frames in, highlight them all with the mouse. Click Create, then Multi-Page File Builder. Then add in all the frames you want.

Set the drop-down menu to Animated GIF, and set the interval. I've found that if you're getting every frame in the scene you want, an interval of about 4 should do the trick.

The speed of the gif is different on the internet than it is on your image viewer, so you might wanna upload and make sure it's not too fast.

Regardless of the changes, I was still able to enjoy this episode. Flamberge's personality seems fun in a loose-cannon sort of way, and the "antagonist" was actually surprisingly sympathetic.

Something to note, the somewhat subtle sexual implications in Dalian and Huey's "World Sequence" are much more blatant in Flam's. And somewhat more disturbing.

Huey and Dalian bantering still amusing, called what the book did the moment it seemed to be able to do more then one effect (since everything has only one effect it really can only be something that allows for a lot of versatility, so that's either something lame like illusions or something broken bordering on godhood), and it's good to see the OP and ED again.

Dalian's tongue is as sharp as ever, and the way Huey just takes it as it comes with flying colors and an understated suaveness results in a decent dynamic.

"Do you take me for an idiot?" (slightly exasperated expression)
"How did you know?" (cue genuinely surprised expression)

The animation, the music, the Dalian/Huey interactions - all in all it's good to see the show back again, even if it's just for a little bit.

Season 2 is a must!
