Earl and Fairy: Interesting Blend

Currently finished: Episode 5

The first impression I had about this anime is very similar to Astraea Testament, which lasted about a third way through the season before the amusement ran out. Earl and Fairy, however, seem to be somewhat different.

I said it is very Shoujo heavy anime, well, that part didn't change. But on top of that, there's a blend of light novel, light action, and light comedy being introduced. Because there's has been quite a few high quality light novel animes, my attitude towards new light novel animes are generally welcome with a somewhat high anicipation since the early ones had set a high standard. So, that's enough reason for me to keep watching it till the end of the season (since it's a short season anime).

One thing about light novel, is that generally you'd get the resolution to the problem, but you wouldn't get a clear climax throughout the storyline. If you've been following my blog long enough, you'd know that I really dislike anticlimactic endings. The only genre I'd let go without burning it on the review is the light novel. Because if it's done properly, there would be no need for a climax.

New Rating (out of 5): 3.75 (net gain: +0.25) ~ Intriguing
