“Oh, there’s another Lukkuchi Girl!”
Set after the collapse of the Arcadia Empire by a coup d’etat, we follow our main protagonist, Lux Arcadia, who tries to find his place in the world by doing odd jobs in the new country. However, beneath all of the ordinary slice of life events that Lux finds himself in is a deeper plot filled with political aggression between country’s and a plot to over throw the new kingdom.
Through, initially looking through the synopsis, pictures and doing simple research, one could say its your typical harem anime, with a fantasy twist. When it comes down to it however, it’s a pretty good one. It excels at giving a variety of characters with different personality’s, where the girls interactions with Lux was always fun and nice to watch. The best part was probably how balanced it everything was, from comedic moments, too more fan-service based ones, the transition between them was quite smooth keeping everything neat.
On a more serious note, the action provided in each episode was actually quite good. With the animations clearly showing the movements of the Drag-rides and the explosions that occur along with any shots or explosives. The use of lasers, and the different colors the came with them was also quite pretty too see, especially with all of the different colors assigned to each character. The existence of Drag-rides and their uniqueness also gave an added flair to the anime, with each Divine Drag-ride having a different power, it made battles have more variety and strategy too them.
Krulcifer Best Girl!
OP/ED: The OP provided a more electronic base, with a faster pace song. With most of the animations focusing on the characters and Drag-Rides, it provided a good introduction to the show. The ED on the other hand, was more rock based, and focused more on the romance/harem side of the show. The combination of the two provided a great message to what the whole anime was about.
Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut Was it Good?
For a fantasy/harem anime it pushes more onto the better side of the whole genre of anime. With its varying personalities of characters to the movement of comedic scene back to serious back to comedic, it provided an easy viewing for each episode. It’s use of different colors in the action scenes and in its animation, made it easy to follow what was going on as well as being easy on the eyes.
Recommendations: There are a plethora of anime that could be recommended based upon the fantasy/harem genres. However, there are specifications such as mecha-like battles and an underlying political story, which may affect ones decision to watch this, thus I recommend the following:
- IS: Infinite Stratos
- Absolute Duo
- Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance
- Seiken Tsukai no World Break
