Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de aru
Saviour of the season has aired. A double-episode special too, what a treat. Thank you Studio Gokumi.
Spoilered impressions 'cause people should definitely watch the first episode first:
I was hyped in the first place, so obviously I thought it was great. As an original work, though, I'm hoping that the series manages to toe the line of realistic tension/struggle like Madoka did without going overboard with the darkness like some of its imitators. At this point I feel like character death would be just for the shock value (the main cast are actually all, hooray, sympathetic and likeable characters; frankly I prefer it that way), so I'd lose a lot of respect for the show if it actually went that route; however, I do hope it manages to keep the tension up in some other manner. Will definitely be interesting to see how the story progresses.
Incidentally I'm still also waiting on the start of the second cours of Mushishi S2, which also promises to be awesome, but yeah I feel like the season has finally started.
