Impressed by Nanao Hibiya's skill with a sword, Kimberly Magic Academy instructor Theodore McFarlane saves the samurai from certain death amid a fierce battle. With his encouragement, Nanao enrolls in the academy, where she instantly becomes a celebrity after she and four of her peers save a student from an enraged troll. Under the leadership of Oliver Horn, a young man who seems to hide a troubled past, Nanao and her newfound friends start their magical apprenticeship at Kimberly—where only four out of five students make it to graduation in one piece.

It does not take long for Oliver and his friends to experience the dangers of the academy firsthand, as a near-death encounter in the labyrinth under the school leaves Nanao grappling with her bloody past. The inexperienced yet determined students must stick together if they want to have a chance to survive and uncover the mysteries that the academy holds.

Preliminary (3/13 eps)
Nanatsu no maken is (more than Mashle) taking inspiration of Harry Potter. It is based on the LN, which, so far (I've read vol. 1) is pretty good. so how does the anime compare with the LN?

Animation: 7. The animation is good, at some points even great, like at the fights. the sound design is satisfying enough, but what I think is lacking is a dynamic animation style that will boost the magic casting. The fights are dynamic. The rest is pretty standard anime.

Story: 7. This is the first thing where the LN outshines the anime. the story in the anime is pretty good. ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (6/13 eps)
Looks great, and there's a lot of fun to see and explore while watching.
However, the characters are very dry. The concept is basically Harry Potter animated when you look at the overall environment.
In other words, it's something to watch when there's nothing else to watch. The scenarios are somewhat different each episodes, but they also repeat eachother all the time.

(All scenarios / conflicts)
Oh trouble - let's do smth about it - what?! didn't expect this - superpower - we won.

Now this goes for almost all fights with heroes, main characters etc. But they don't change anything, it's the same pattern all over.
In ...

Preliminary (3/13 eps)
(Some cuckoo person with a certain lack of hinge, on 17Aug decided to spend a sad 180mins of his unemployed existence making 10 blank accounts manually just to vote me up funny :D :D
Since thats not me and MAL don't care, keeping this up as my exonerating proof, and also showcasing of the state of MAL, their employees, the state of users here and most funnily the credibility of all the scores displayed on this platform)

4/10- Would give 5-6 if all the things below are intentionally done like Eminence in Shadow
This anime offends me with its averageness like Saiki K loves staring at that most ...
