Madan No Ou To Vanadis Episode 2
Second episode in and we get a better feel for the main characters. Elen seems to be very aloof, or rather, acting on a whim. But I highly doubt the kingdom of Zhcted merely hands over their lands to a woman with platinum blonde hair and platinum grade breasts. She has a good head on her shoulders, and no doubt her ability to command her sword puts lots of weight into her capability as a leader. Something along the lines of how the sword only goes for the one that is most capable.
Madan no Ou to Vanadis Episode 2
The next episode is the battle itself, unless they make it a short one and hammer home some more of this particularly interesting set of characters and setting. I look forward to it, and aim to continue past the TER for this series.
The series consists of eighteen volumes released by Media Factory, under their MF Bunko J imprint, from April 2011 to November 2017. A manga adaptation by Nobuhiko Yanai began serialization ran in Monthly Comic Flapper from October 2011 to August 2016.

At the MF Bunko Summer School Festival 2013 event, Media Factory announced that an anime adaptation of Lord Marksman and Vanadis was green-lit for production. The 2014 MF Bunko Summer School Festival announced the cast and staff; it is produced by Satelight and directed by Tatsuo Sato with Kaito Ishikawa starring as Tigrevurmud Vorn and Haruka Tomatsu voicing Eleonora Viltaria.

Tigre and Vanadish is 2D animated with chibi sized characters that play out short segments of the light novel that were cut from the anime. Lim's Report is a brief summary and analysis of the war tactics used by each forces in each episode.
Honestly, I was expecting a bit more from this episode. But nonetheless, still a great episode. Watching Parasyte makes me tense and I really love how it keeps my attention without really even trying.
I was initially worried about the direction Sunrise was going to take. Original works scares me. After recently experiencing Aldnoah Zero Fucks Given and Zankyou no shit I was left thinking that original anime must be shit and therefore decided to avoid them altogether. But well..Cross Ange had kinda restored my faith in original works, or at least the 2nd episode was above average-ishly good. I heaved a sigh of relief as I was initially worried the series would go down hill right after the premiere. By the way, it did not.
Gosh oh gosh. Sunrise. I just love it how I sit at my seat gasping and foaming when an episode ends. That cliffhangers cum shocking endings though. Just when it was never going to get more shocking then the premiere, I was proven wrong. 041b061a72
