This is a anime I have wanted to watch for the LONGEST TIME. I kept seeing clips on YouTube, and I was interested. Though a word of warning, this is not available on Crunchyroll/Funimation. While I am all for supporting the creators, I do watch Kamen Rider via fan subs(It's the only way), so I don't mind bending the law here.However, it is on YouTube via fan subs so be aware of that.
1.Spoilers are abounding here folks. If you want to watch it blindly... go watch it. Spoilers are here.
2. Depending on the Anime, this can get NSFW. Oh Boy, this one seems not safe for work.
3. I am watching the subbed version.
Anyways, this is long overdue. This is my first impressions of: Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle.
5 years before the start of the show, the Empire of Arcadia was overthrown in a coup d'etat, starting the era of the Atismata Empire with the help of a mysterious Black Machine Dragon. Yea, despite this series being rooted in an chivalrous setting, they still use mechs (called Machine Dragons). As such, here is a screenshots from Hyrule Warriors Gundam:
The theme song and OP are great. Hiryuu no Kishi is a great jam. I love the beat and how it fits both ages. The lyrics and intro graphics feel right at home as well.
We then meet our main character, Lux Arcadia. He is a handiman and former Prince of Arcadia. While on a job, he slips into the bathroom of an ALL GIRLS SCHOOL. This is random as all hell, but then again this anime we are talking about, so I guess a nothing new there? Oh yea, and this is what they call the Academy(the people that hired Lux), a Drag-Knight academy(the people who ride the machine dragons) that was made after the coup d'etat. (Warning: Below image may not be safe for work)
Anyways Lux finds himself having to win dual between himself and the girl with the emblem tattoo, Lisesharte Atismata. She is the princess of the current empire. He has to win in order to get into the school(he was invited to go there by the Headmaster.) Before he meets Airi, his sister and Nokuto Leaflet, a year 1 student that likes starting all her sentences with "Yes." However, Lux's Machine Wyvern struggles against Lisesharte's Machine Tiamart. (Warning: Below image may not be safe for work)
After both of them fight off a Gargoyle, the episode ends with Lisesharte(now allowing Lux to call her Lisha) showing Lux the tattoo. But not before we see Lux's black sword device.
The episode is mostly focused on the first fight scene, and I have the say the action value here is great. I haven't really seen Gundam, so my first exposure to this style of fighting is good!
Overall, I did really enjoy this first episode. I have heard this anime is a mix of a lot of Genres, so I can't wait to see more!
Thanks for reading, have a great day/night, share if it's enjoyed it, and take care.
