Youjo Senki Episode 4: Well, you just played yourself


Well, sucks to be Tanya, as usual. It's kinda fun to watch Tanya get screwed over, as always, without any overt intervention from Being X. I'm curious just how long this kind of series can last. I'm already going through each episode going "okay, what's going to go wrong this time", which usually isn't a good sign.

I think I'm starting to understand why Being X gave Tanya such incredible magic power. If Tanya only had her mind as an advantage in this new world, she'd probably only excel in tactical situations. Because of her rare magical talent, she has shown herself to be incredibly powerful in a combat situation. It makes it hard to pass up putting her on the battlefield. Still, that plan relies on her going to the military...I'm not sure if it completely makes sense yet. But it's pretty much why I'm always so confused that Tanya rushes out into battle by herself so much.

You should know better than to say that...

So basically that other guy's answer was correct, but for the wrong reason? I hate classes like this.

Oh right...they were putting together some kind of task force that was supposed to include Tanya. Jeez, that's taking six months to do?

I feel like this plan from Tanya isn't well-explained. It sounds like she's saying "use the mages to take out as many enemy soldiers as possible to lower their available manpower while using standard infantry defensively to lower personal losses", but...does the military not already do that? Is this plan crazy because mages are usually kept back as a precious resource and this plan suggests putting them out in the open? If so, I feel like that could be called out better.

I have to admit that Tanya's inner monologue is pretty funny, though.

I'm actually still wondering myself why Tanya is in the military...

Oh...Tanya screwed herself again, didn't she?

Is this guy's role in the show just to be the one guy skeptical of Tanya? I mean, I'm fine with that, but it kinda sucks to be him.

Haha, that sounds about right.

Is that a high chair?

I think you mean "offer".

I'm with you, Tanya. Who would sign up for that?

    Does anyone actually write help wanted ads like that? And wouldn't you just question the sanity of someone who applied?

    Tanya's offer was copied from a ad for men to go exploring to the south pole in our history. Fantastic ad to keep normal people out. But wonderful ad to get those who crave danger to achieve a great thing and all it needs is a famous leader to seal the deal.
    Yes this type of ad is what would suck in the type of person who wants to be special forces. After all it is basically true of the job of our real special forces. We don't pay them very much especially considering the danger level and the living conditions are horrible with sure high casualties in the type of war in this story.

    oh wow...didnt know that. that's pretty cool.

    still, pretty surprising that there are that many crazies out there...especially given how scarce mages are supposed to be.
