Ye, characters were too black&white, but I hope it will change as the season continues.

I am annoyed by how they didn't even bother to make it a fake world.

Just make it literally Germany and literally Nazis taking over actual Europe, and the hime-sama being from Luxembourg or Lichtenstein. If you aren't even going to change the European borders (but still show them incorrectly, because Poland was shown as split between Germany and the USSR, even though there doesn't seem to be a USSR here) then why change the name and the nazi symbols? I thought you can freely show Swastikas in Japan.

Other than that it looks interesting.

Great great first episode.
Really didn't expect that from the "scantily clad witch riding a german gun like a broomstick" poster.

I suppose I'll start again.

It'll give them a free pass on historical inaccuracies. Also, you can't just show a swastika in Germany, so maybe they were being a little considerate to their international audience.

I enjoyed it a lot. Didn't expect Fine to be the gutsy girl and Izetta to be a crybaby witch, but that's fine too. Lots of doujin bait, and I liked the BGM and character designs for all the NPCs.

I can't tell if they're half-assed in the resemblance to WWII or Europe, or half-assed in trying to not resemble WWII and Europe. Probably both. They copy what they want and ignore what they have no use for.

The thing is there are a lot of these anime/game stories that are very obviously based on WWII, but at least then they bother to say it's the nation of Evilempiria in the continent of Westia and have the borders be similar to real life but not copied from Wikipedia.

Take -some- elements, not everything but half the names.

Jason Allen

French metric time
Never thought about it that way, haha.
I'm glad it didn't though, because it was a mess with variable days per years and retarded non timeless names.

Also, it was Thermidor in the revolutionary calendar between July 19th and August 17th and that name comes from the fact it's usually hot then.
I don't know why they'd pick that one out of the twelve others.

Maybe because of the 9 Thermidor Year II coup.

Great first episode, beyound the expectations. Hope it remains like that and its not just them going all out for one OAV tier episode.

The only thing i didnt quite like was Germans being portrayed as carricaturical evil. As evil they might be, its not like every german is psychotic sadist - considering Japan being an Axis power, could have portrayed them better: for example a blind patriotism and dedication to their Emperor or something, rage over allies screwing them over after WW1, etc considering nazi ideology doesnt even exist in this show.

I know it was nice to still have some tension, but I can't help but wonder why the witch on a flying broom had to make some kind of drift in mid air and stop just a little too far away before reaching her arm to try to grab the princess.

If you can fly, just fly toward the thing that is falling and catch it. No need to have a whole "please grab my hand, I can't get any closer for some weird reason" moment.

This.
What got me interested in the series was the fantasy/WWII crossover, but it looks like they weren't able to pull it off/make it interesting. Looks like it's just WWII with some random magic thrown in.

Also, the exposition and character introduction was kinda lame, and the two main girls stick out like sore thumbs.

Maybe I'm getting too old for this shit.

Andrew Rodriguez

So, Britain pretends that Pricess is kidnapped by Germans - thats why British ambasadors organizes that an SAS agent barges in during their meeting and captures here posing as German.

Doesnt explain how he got Izetta though, since the guys transporting her were faithful to Reich. So likely he is a double agent pretending to be German, and essetially stole germann secret weapons (Izetta, Soviet rifles) and took Princess (motives of wanting to help her and pretending to be evil do not occur, since he murdered her aide in cold blood) for some political gain. Izetta was to be shipped separetely from Princess, and likely the agent indended to deliver it to British.

But how were they planning to use a Princess? Murder her publicly and blame Germans to cause outrage?

The main girl's design feels out of place. I wouldn't say "moe", but it's the same simplified detailess style usually used in cgdct. Which creates a rather jarring contrast when she's on screen with another character. It also makes Hayami using her serious/deep voice for her really awkward and unfitting.

Era of extremely rapid modernization, also saw great increase in political power of the military despite Meiji Restoration nominally wresting authority from the bakufu/Shogun and returning it to the Emperor. Japan sent envoys to various European nations in order to figure out what cultural, technological, etc. changes they should make in order to be acknowledged as a modern nation by the Western powers. One of the things they admired was Prussia's military tradition. (The old-fashioned black gakuran schoolboy outfits are modeled on Prussian uniforms.)

Junketsu no Maria was actually quite good, but it had a more laid-back pace and dealt with historical topics that aren't interesting for mindless otaku.

In other words, it was not an action spectacle which is what this is selling along with its yuribait. Thus this show is immediately more commercial and otaku friendly.

China was funny in never going expansionist. Maybe wars at home made them sick of that shit early on.
Officially it is because China had its hands full holding on to territory it already has, and as such sees expansion as being more than it can chew. Civil Wars in China are basically bigger than Western continental wars of the equivalent time period.

Adam Scott
Adam Scott

The original point was to use the marriage as justification for Brittania sending troops, equipment, and supplies into not!Liechtenstein to protect the country and ward off a costly invasion by Germania. That's why the princess opened with persuading a corporation to do business with Brittania first, to appeal to their economic interests before moving to political ones when that wasn't enough. Brittania didn't want to open a new front though since they weren't doing well at the others, and once Germania invaded (probably once they heard she left the country), the whole point of the exercise became moot. They weren't going to stick their neck out for a country getting BTFO when theirs isn't doing too well in the war.

Jacob King

Fighting on multiple fronts is unreasonable after all.

There is still plenty that can be discussed. Like for example how and when the Izetta-verse diverged from ours (perhaps since the French Revolution), what is the origin of Izetta's witch power, did perhaps that scientist do something to Izetta to make sure that she will not be able to cause too much damage to Germania's armies, what will the other nations do when their agents might confirm that there really is a girl with magical powers blowing up Germanian tanks and stukas.
We do need to wait for more episodes though, since episode 1 is about setting up the entire setting plus showing the personality and resolve of Fine.
Episode 2 will probably show the awesome might of Izetta and her common history with Fine, how they met as little girls and then how they lost sight of each another.
