Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin or the more quicker English translation; Aldermin on the sky.
The story follows: Ikta Solork, Yatarishino “Yatori” Igsem, Torway Remion, Matthew Tetdrich, Haroma Becker & Shamille Kitra Katvarnmaninik (yes try saying that name real fast). As they take on a military grade examination in service of the empire.
Straight off the bat, the two characters that really catch me are Yatori and Ikta (however that slightly changes). The reason being is that Ikata doesn’t come off as your typical male lead. That being he is; lazy, slothful and a womaniser. However behind them traits, belies a genius tactician. One who can lead an army to victory. Yatori caught my attention as well. For one she doesn’t show the typical female leads characteristics. She is strong, loyal to the empire and the monarchy. And can guess what Ikta is thinking (somewhat as Ikta is a genius) plus she knows when to put him back in his place. And she doesn’t fall for his charms (as easily). I put that down as based upon the episodes watched. You can say they compliment each other. Being the brains and one being the brawn?.
There is a close friendship between them, which I hope doesn’t turn in to a typical romance thing. As stated, they work well and balance each other out. Besides, Ikta might not go for Yatori, since he has a thing for older women. As noted in episode 3.
As stated earlier, Yatori and Ikta aren’t the only ones that caught my attention. Matthew and Troway. Troway because he is an exceptional marksman, and Matthew because he is shares a similar trait to myself and that is hard word. He works hard to achieve something and wants to improve. The gag is that he sees Troway and Yatori as rivals because their families are more well known than his is.
The problem I initially had with this anime is that I couldn’t remember the names. It took me a while to remember them. Also the pacing was pretty slow at the start, however it has picked up. Those are the only things I can think of that can hinder this anime.
For me, this anime is a:
