Synopsis: Toru Acura is a 20-year-old retired soldier meandering through life now that the war has ended. He encounters Chaika Trabant, a 14-year-old sorceress carrying a coffin, and follows her in hopes of finding meaning to his life again. The two travel with Toru’s adopted sister, Akari, the employed member of the group and thus Toru’s source of income.

Kind of an odd, seven years ago last week medieval RPG fantasy story where the timeline doesn't make sense but everything else is neat.
here goes another new series with a hime-sama antithesis in a fantasy setting, but she talks like a caveman in a cute way ^^ cool OP and ED; Ex low -PS 6/10

And will probably have to nudge Yuu Sasuga in there soon enough, only a couple of chapters in and gotta say he's godlike lol<br><br>Lately i am extremely interested in a genre that is still not very well self defined but i think it might be the next "thing", the genre would be a setting were the characters are outside of highschool and working, like Servant Service, Denki-gai, or Bonnouji (or Asistant to mangakasan).<br><br>I think its a great genre that will come alive thanks to the decreasing birthrate in Japan and the increasing amount of old otakus. (paving way to "customers" more interested in dramas outside of highschool, i keep remembering too what a friend used to say "why the hell do all settings have to be in school :(" i dont really agree but i see his point now)<br><br>Aside from that (anime interests) I am a male gamer, i used to play a lot of Dota (w3 map) and LoL but stopped because it was getting quite ugly (like an addiction), i love shooters, morpgs, and any kind of single player game (any genre such as action fighting strategy or rpg, even simulation games, i used to like management games but that was when the only management games i knew were Sim City, Sim Hospital, Sim Theme Park, and Transport Tycoon, nowadays i dont like management games because they keep reminding me of how good the old retro ones were compared to the new ones, such as crusader kings etc). I also love the battle simulation games like Chivalry or JKA II, and i highly recommend trying Chivalry on Steam.<br><br>My favorite game series are Disgaea, Tales of, Xcom (although they botched the reboot), Warcraft, (Tactics/Battle) Ogre, FF (altough they keep botching it after lightning's games), SMT/persona, D&D inspired games like Baldur's Gate, as well as Shadowrun and similar series with boardgame-like rulesets or atmosphere, Shinobido, Samurai Warriors/Dynasty Warriors, and GEB, and any Monhun-like games.<br><br>My favorite morpgs are Mu online, Ragnarok online (first one), Tera online, SMTI online (died in NA T_T), Aion, Silkroad online (f*****g botfest), and right now im looking forward to Merchants of Kaidan (looks yummy), which definitely isnt a mmorpg but would be cool if it had a multiplayer element like Shogun 2 has.

I used to read this one's manga, sadly i cant share a first impresion yet. Im soooo busy lately i still have only watched half this season's first episodes, havent even touched Chaika's ep 1, but if its even half as good as the manga then i recommend it.

Main character is a bit meh since its one of those OP from start kind of main character but the script as a whole is good, so its a thumbs up.

Hitsugi no chaika

I enjoy the animation, may not be the best but it has a sort of nostalgia around it for some reason.
The plot is mysterious, but also very predictable, if you are known with such anime as this one.

Overall: It has a lot of ways it can grow, the plot is average, but, it does has a intriguing force around it. which will make me keep watching it.

indeed I had a low expectation because i considered the cast 'one-dimensional', but after watching ep.2 and 3 I'm more interested in the plot as you mention... Chaika's mission to bury the Maoh reminded me Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, why is she told to not gather her dad's remains? can he revive restarting a war?

Dear god..

Spoiler Warning Contents: Quote.

You probably, just spoiled the hole ending plot xD, that is what I meant with Predictable.
But.. maybe they aren't that (pardon me language) stupid to make it that obvious.

I watched the first 3 episodes last night and it is decent to watch but I'm not really impressed by anything yet. I picked it up for 2 reasons only, the original creator of this also created Scrapped Princess, which was a great anime. The other reason is because it's a BONES anime and I haven't seen an anime series from them in a while.

I'm expecting this series to get better as it goes along. The next episode seems interesting with the Dragoon lady firstly saving Toru and then fighting him 1 on 1.

This explains so much.

In any case, I'm enjoying it so far. It's re-treading on story content I already know, tho'. Looking forward to this Dragoneer lady, I don't recall where the manga cut off when last I read it, but I think it cut off around the same place Ep 3 ended.

i wasn't impressed at first too so i didnt expect much but the series is gradually surprising me, more than lolis for me it's a fresh overlord's daughter vs. heroes story with Scrapped Princess's touch... specially the plot twist in ep.4 explaning why this "narcissistic heroine" didn't recognize Chaika, unlike the first hero who most likely decapitated her because a neck scar was seen while she's bathing ohmy.gif

Episode 04 was good, I did like that twist to introduce another character into the party. biggrin.gif I have hope that this series will become more entertaining as it goes along.

I'm guessing the Mad King can be resurrected either by the use of spells or just letting his body parts touch themselves and instantly reanimating him. rolleyes.gif

Wow. It almost feels derivative now.

Episode 04 was good, I did like that twist to introduce another character into the party. biggrin.gif I have hope that this series will become more entertaining as it goes
hmm if by derivative you mean both series are about a couple of called siblings who protect a princess, believed to bring ruin to the world also escaping from a group of persuers that visit many places... but aired 10 years of difference then you're right though as reported previously there are many Chaikas, like the not-so-flat short haired girl in red of ep.5 who has a similar goal as the main cast tongue.gif

Umm this episode sort of went by very quickly, it felt more like 10 minutes than 20. Multiple Chaikas with the same neck scars, I wonder if the Mad King cut off the head of all his daughters or clones of his dead daughter and put them on different headless female bodies that originally had a unique ability, like the White Chaika is a "magician sniper" and the red Chaika is a snake sword expert like SoulCal's Ivy. He could have done this because his power is immense even with just his remains and sort of supports the theory that he can resurrect himself if his remains are close to each other as well as being able to carry out such a feat. All I can say is that I'm interested in this world but I still haven't been swayed into thinking it's great.....it's just okay for now.

agreed this series isn't as great as NGNL and others of my list (specially today's Materialization shiritori o.0), but storywise it's intriguing like Masich said and s2 was just confirmed for this Fall ^^... ok I remember there was a fake Scrapped Princess but now its author goes beyond who is the real Chaika in ep.6, this arc reminds me to Marvel's Maximum Clonage or DC's Reign of the Supermen huh.gif

Yeah, when I saw the news of a 2nd season on MAL, I was like really but to be honest....we really don't know much about this series yet despite getting to the halfway point of season 1 but after watching episode 06, I'll be looking forward to it because the story so far seems promising, I'm just wondering how much of the light novels have been already adapted so far in this anime.

It would be nice if the 2nd season is able to actually finish the story, maybe that's why it's split into 2 different season, so that the author of the LNs can finish the story before then.

ok I must admit each new episode has hooked me to watch more than ScraPrin back then, which had an open ending (dunno if its light novels too) so again i'm marathoning it to compare similarities... in ep.7 i found that encounter with the 3rd hero a bit disappointing but was funny to see Toru's real feelings, accepting that most likely he'll pick Chaika from his 'harem' (over the red one as well)happy.gif

Episode 07 was pretty funny but the conclusion to the 3rd hero was a little disappointing like Necro said.

Episode 08 was a very average episode, I know there were a few worthy moments such as partial reveals that indicated that Emperor Gaz was just a mysterious person who was a great wizard and was able to create many magic-using inventions and all but everything else about him is just rumours and it makes me wonder why the "Legendary Heroes" even attacked him in the first place.

I'm glad this will be getting a 2nd season because I don't think we will get much answers by the end of the first season.

I also love the battle simulation games like Chivalry or JKA II, and i highly recommend trying Chivalry on Steam.<br><br>My favorite game series are Disgaea, Tales of, Xcom (although they botched the reboot), Warcraft, (Tactics/Battle) Ogre, FF (altough they keep botching it after lightning's games), SMT/persona, D&D inspired games like Baldur's Gate, as well as Shadowrun and similar series with boardgame-like rulesets or atmosphere, Shinobido, Samurai Warriors/Dynasty Warriors, and GEB, and any Monhun-like games.<br><br>My favorite morpgs are Mu online, Ragnarok online (first one), Tera online, SMTI online (died in NA T_T), Aion, Silkroad online (f*****g botfest), and right now im looking forward to Merchants of Kaidan (looks yummy), which definitely isnt a mmorpg but would be cool if it had a multiplayer element like Shogun 2 has.

QUOTE (NecroRyu @ Apr 23 2014, 06:00 PM)
indeed I had a low expectation because i considered the cast 'one-dimensional', but after watching ep.2 and 3 I'm more interested in the plot as you mention... Chaika's mission to bury the Maoh reminded me Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, why is she told to not gather her dad's remains?

Started watching it today, i got to say its a good animation but its lacking when compared to the manga, in my opinion the first two episodes would have been better off divided into 3 to depict all the things that happened between (and before) meeting chaika and getting away from the cavalier.

For example there is a hotblooded monologue were after learning she is looking for her father's remains, the protagonist gives them lip service and pities Chaika for having survived on her own for so long while being on such a heartrending situation (were she is alone in the world, hunted by a cult and government officials, and not permited to lay his father's remains to rest)

if i recall correctly that monologue went kind of like that, and it kind of put the story and the feelings of the main characters into perspective, without it the story feels a bit dull, as if the animation lacked color (monochrome).

Sorry if thats TL;DR, but the manga is just that good for me.

Episode 07 was pretty funny but the conclusion to the 3rd hero was a little disappointing like Necro said.

Episode 08 was a very average episode, I know there were a few worthy moments such as partial reveals that indicated that Emperor Gaz was just a mysterious person who was a great wizard and was able to create many magic-using inventions and all but everything else about him is just rumours and it makes me wonder why the "Legendary Heroes" even attacked him in the first place.

Started watching it today, i got to say its a good animation but its lacking when compared to the manga, in my opinion the first two episodes would have been better off divided into 3 to depict all the things that happened between (and before) meeting chaika and getting away from the cavalier.

if i recall correctly that monologue went kind of like that, and it kind of put the story and the feelings of the main characters into perspective, without it the story feels a bit dull, as if the animation lacked color (monochrome).
at first I felt it dull too so the light novel characters left me a better impression, yet I think the animation and designs have their charm done by studio Bones... I liked ep.9 a bit more than the impostor princess in #8 (ScraPrin déjà vu too), it revealed why Chaika lost her memories but also Akari and Toru's childhood ;p

Chaika The Coffin Princess (So far)

At first, The Animation is different from the others that are airing this season, but I enjoy it as I said: it looks nice and old fashion but the Anime self, had a pretty slow beginning (especially with the introduction of the other characters such as Gillette Corps).
Plot is still Mysterious, I don't know why but I really am questioning the hole Heroes, what happened to them and I hope on answers regarding the Fortress, which was introduced pretty early.

Overall : I enjoy the Anime and its adventure, and am pretty happy to know it gets a second season.
I only hope the second season does not end with a open ending, but we shall have to wait.

To be Continued O.o

This last episode has an interesting float back and forth between heartwarming and nightmare fuel.

The Magic System implications the memories bit brings are fascinating, but brings to mind the question of how many crystallized memories are in Gaz's corpse for it to be so energetic..?

I wonder if the reason everyone seems to think "It was okay under Gaz" is because he was doing atrocities, then using the collective public memory of said atrocity as fuel.
