    the second season is one of the most frustrating anime for me because it fucks up everything i liked about s1
    and the worst part is it has potential, it keeps almost going good and then going back to badly written angsty melodrama

    last ep of konosuba was underwhelming but a good cap off to the series. Hopefully there is more., I like how despite not having much actual plot progression, we do learn more about the characters.

    normally I think fantasy is ass but I was longing for a fantasy/adventure show where its just random hijinks instead of trying to save the world from (insert fantasy technobabble)
    I really liked how    character's attitudes towards each other show there's a lot more than the viewers of Kazuma knows. Like how Wiz knew the poison slime guy, that same guy knew the woman in the mixed bath scene, implying she was a demon king general too.   



    Also, firepunch is hilarious

    The last youjo senki.

    I realise they're fighting a large war and are in the 20's or something, and they're using magic, but I think the mechanized units shown were a bit too advanced.

    Also, they're a bad choice when there are mages in your world that can take out bunkers with their rifles.

    Otherwise, good episode but no surprises.

    A number of their tech is more advanced than they'd have at the time in our world. They're about 15 years ahead of where they should be for some technology. Although from my understanding of it the Empire also developed extremely quickly so as to be a capable fighting force.

    I don't mind the mashup of older and newer warfare, I just thought tanks would be really easy targets to all the mages, and a lot more expensive than simple artillery.

    Unless the tanks also involved mages. But I think that'd be a waste of mages, since they'd be better in the air.

    Planes have an altitude advantage over mages, artillery is way at the back and aren't a huge effort to make. Tanks just don't seem to have a niche in a war with mages.

    I feel like the Youjo Senki anime actually makes the Mages seems way more powerful than their novel counterpart to be honest, and they also changed a lot of details in the anime which makes things way more heroic and exaggerated. But I can see that's because they don't really have time for all the backstory and conversations for an anime, and it still turns out to be fine anyway.

    Also the technology in Youjo Senki is in a really weird places where they have WW2-period weapons but are still stuck with WW1~early WW2 tactics and strategies for some reason. It is never really explained in the story so it's all just what the author says.

    However, I can see why tanks are still being used because mages are really limited in numbers and they are a specialized unit rather than being a main combat force, so tanks can still be an effective front-line group unit in most situation. I can also recall reading some author notes for the web novel explaining mages vs tanks are actually a 50/50 fight but I can't remember the details, and I am not sure how settings from the WN may translate to the LN.

    It is the 1920s. But the tanks the Empire is using look to be Panzer IIIs, which shouldn't exist until the mid 1930s.
    Also, I think part of it is that there aren't enough capable mages to make tanks futile. So when mages aren't around to provide fire support, its just the typical warfare we'd expect, where a tank fits on the battlefield.

    The smartphone wasn't his main ability in this tho, and there are even mechas in later parts of the story
    But I don't think the anime will cover up to that point

    Hot damn DEEN has gone from one of my least favourite studios, to one of my favourite. No clue how they went from messing up log horizon season 2 to fucking hitting it out of the park and making not just one, but two shows that occupy my top 5 of last year. What the fuck did they put in the water?

    I'd like to read those.

    My guess is because a large portion of a mage's spellbook is basically explosions of various sizes. Shockwaves are really good at shaking buildings and limbs into tiny chunks, not so good at penetrating armour.

    Conversely, a tank against a mage is basically trying to hit a fly with a hammer.

    I think it was on the author's ask.fm but I might need to look for it in order to find it again.
    but yeah if memory serves its about the mages' explosion spell being ineffective against armor and tanks can't hit flying mages.
