Whelp, I’ve dropped it. Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho had potential, but it decided to not expand upon it, instead giving us boring exposition, typical plot and generally not an enjoyable experience. Maybe to some it was pretty ok, but at the end of episode 5 I was pretty convinced that this anime was not for me. Boring and predictable plot, characters getting little to no character development, as well as many unexplained mysteries that they simply left hanging without making me want to know more about just makes this anime a waste of time to continue watching. Thus, it is dropped.
Stats at the end of run(for me):
Art: 7/10: The art and animations in this is at most a “meh.”
Music: 6/10: Nothing outstanding here either. No obvious mistakes but in the end it wasn’t enjoyable either.
Story: 5/10: Not entertaining. Main reason why I dropped.
Comedy: 7/10: I have to admit, this anime has its moments, and it was these moments that kept me in.
SOL: 3/10: They could have done so much better with the SOL! But of cause they won’t, don’t be silly.
Youhei: 0/10: What? You watched this anime for an awesome beast human mercenary thing? Sorry, let’s just cut his usefulness by 10-fold and make him stand by the side.
Zero: 5/10: True main characters only get half the character development. You need more? Well sorry we ran out of fucks to give. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Overall: 6/10: Disappointment.
