Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru First Impressions (1): Definitely a science show

Curses, I've been baited by scientific terms yet again. I could easily hate on this show for being a bad science show, but it's clearly a fantasy show, so I'm willing to give it a chance. The science talk is just an excuse to smuggle magic into the world. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but I think it depends on where the series goes with it. I wish the episode hadn't started with so much (seemingly) meaningless jargon, though.

This introduction makes it really hard to realize that this series is set in an alternate world.

If anything, though, the episode did a good job of showing off how ridiculous science names can be. Are there Defensive Jushikiists? We only hear about the Offensive Jushikiists in this episode.

This scene would do a better job of introducing its world and the main characters if it explained why the two weren't getting paid. What exactly did they do wrong? Am I just supposed to assume that they're typically troublemakers and broke some rule fighting the dragon?

So, do these guys fight dragons or do they fight other Jushikiists? I feel like I'm just supposed to assume that they fill the common trope of working as "odd job" specialists.

Too many things in this episode felt like they shouldn't have been introduced if they weren't going to be explained. I get that Gaius is supposed to be the rational/scientific one while Gigina is supposed to be the traditional/spiritual one, but those descriptions seemed like they were just shoved in my face.
