I've seen two episodes of this show and it is pretty good. The animation is good and the characters are interesting. The only thing it seems to lack as of yet is an original plot, but we'll see. Anyone else have an opinion or two or three??

You should definitely be able to pick up on the some of the (semi?)originality of the plot around episode 12 or so, and the plot is probably going get into full gear by the latter third of the show. However, the plot isn't the most important aspect of the show I think. You'll get your chance to look at a bunch of various commentaries on social interactions between people and politics.

the male lead is simply far too dull for me to give this series a glance past episode 2.

This series is actually surprisly good, I for one am enjoying this series. The main attract to me for this series is that it is exactly like an RPG, especially Fire Enblem.

And I like the series have many large scale battle.

Hmm, if I could change one thing - I would decrease breast sizes of some of its female characters (it's pretty ridiculous and in the first place inconsistent - I mean there are lot of females which are normal).

It seems exactly like an RPG ... because it's based on an RPG XD with the exact same name (methinks). :p

Ya, they really should decrease the size of their breats.

Now that you mention it, I think I have played this RPG when I was in China :P

I like this show, I'm on like episode 20 and it is very interesting. Although it seems like a pretty stereotypical fighting anime, the main character differs from other shows in that he knows when to settle things, and doesn't seem like a weak decision maker(just kills the bad guys, even though he seems to be a really kind person himself).

... the breast thing does bother me too though.

I didn't even notice the breast thing until you all started complaining about it. It still doesn't bother me though. I figure whatever they want to draw as long as the story is good. It suprises me that I hear some many negative comments about. I just don't see the horribleness of the show. The characters are all decent sorts and the stories are fun if in the norm of the genre.
