Rokka -Braves of the Six Flowers- Episode 1 Thoughts

by AJ Adejare

  • Adlet’s personality doesn’t feel overbearing for his confidence.  It feels that while he’s confident in himself, he’s not going to to go too overboard with arrogance as he actually waited to heal and took Nashetania’s advice rather than just saying “screw it” and failing.
  • The fight scene were pretty interesting.  They felt fairly smooth throughout the transition and entertaining at that.
  • Speaking of entertaining the comedy, although a bit safe, was still solid.  Some genuine situational comedy as well as the comical quips.
  • I feel like one of the very few misteps in the episode was the transition to explaining the legend. If Nashetania was trying to act like a maid, I would have expected her to “play dumb” and ask Adlet to explain the happenings of the myth.  It not only would easily make the mythos more alluring but would have made her existence as just a maid more believable.
  • With that said, I can see the train of thought, and it made her baling out Adlet a lot less “OH MY GOD SHOCK” and more like “Okay it was supposed to happen.”
  • Thought not necessarily pointed out, I’m glad that the ecchi route that the series could take was ignored.  It was nice having a conversation between two Flowers without any immediate drive down to the nether regions.
