Youjo Senki Episode 6: Training's over


I'm not sure if this was intended, but for the first official fight of the new mage battalion, this episode was surprisingly focused on Tanya taking out all of the enemies. I'm sure the other units were doing helpful stuff in the background, but I get no sense that these guys are in any way competent. Are they just Tanya's entourage? Anyway, did we get an end game in this episode? Being X said Tanya is fighting against the entire world, so all she has to do is wipe out humanity, right?

Well, quick mobilization was the reason you created that unit.

I think I need to re-evaluate what I mean when I say I'm going "hiking".

You think Being X is responsible for the Dakian attack? What kind of god would send droves of innocent people to their deaths just to screw with one person? Oh wait...

I'm never going to get used to these horse things.

Named mage? I think I'm missing something here. Are they just saying Tanya's famous or are there different levels of mages?

Now that I think about it, the battle last week could hardly be called a battle, so this is probably a pretty stark contrast for this battalion. Tanya's not joking when she calls it a trial by fire.

And yet again Tanya goes off to take on an entire unit by herself. She really has no restraint, does she?

This just got very Gundam.

Zombie! It's been a while, Being X. This guy's really laying on the "bad guy vibe" pretty thick.

Haha this scene was way funnier than I was expecting. It's like one of those "they're headed this way!" realizations.

Crap...am I supposed to recognize this girl?

Yeah, I feel for you, Tanya.

    It appears in the manga and novel. A mage gets a special "name" or nickname from the Mage College if s/he attains the level of hero or ace. Tanya has the nickname of White Silver in anime or Argent in Manga.

    Yet there is also a hidden/extra meaning about the "Named Mage" title. If a mage attain the "Ace of Aces " level by getting 50+ kills, the enemy gives you a codename so that troops understand that they have to "kill him at all cost or flee on sight". Tanya's codename is "Devil of the Rhine".

    that's kinda what i figured. you see, i feel like if we dont have that level of information, then a line like that has no business being in the anime.
