Overall, I didn’t hate this show, but I didn’t come anywhere near loving it either. As I’ve mentioned before, I like some of the characters (mainly Horo), but I really can’t stand the pacing of the story and the way they develop medieval economics themes - that just didn’t appeal to me at all. Perhaps they might have been better off focusing on their journey North instead of on Lawrence’s schemes, but I understand that’s not how the light novels progressed. Regardless, along with the animation quality, I got a general sense of mediocrity and never truly got excited about the show (especially not compared to some of the other stuff airing these days). For those reasons, I probably won’t watch a second season, if there ever is one.
