Tactics Episode 1
I watched this raw, so bear with me...
Ichinomiya Kantaro is an expert on demons. Ever since he was little he wanted a very powerful demon that would make him strong. He decided to name this demon Haruka, as demons are controlled by their names. A family hires him to help their son-in-law who is trapped in ice by a demon. He is able to help them, but gets a bad feeling from their servant who is actually an ice demon in disguise. It turns out that the ice demon is in love with the daughter and wants her for her own. Kan hears of where he can find the all-powerful demon he wants, and breaks the seal that contains him. He names the demon Haruka as he always dreamed to, and Haruka defeats the ice demon who has now trapped the daughter in ice (tho he doesn't kill her as planned due to Kan's interference). Oh and Kantaro also lives with a fox spirit (that usually looks like a human girl, sometimes with fox ears) named Yoko (she's cute and the main comedy relief of the show so far).
I read the first volume of this manga right before I watched the episode raw just so I wouldn't be too confused. Unfortunately for me, the manga is waaaay different from the anime is several ways. The manga is much more humorous (which I hope the anime explores later) and the story is a little different. Anyways, this episode was really pretty, with great use of color and some really cool shots. The art reminds me a ton of Loki, which is to be expected since they have the same manga-ka (Sakura Kinoshita), however it does lack the comedy that Loki has (so far). This is licensed so I'm not sure yet whether anyone is gonna fansub it... Anyways, I like this show a lot and will probably continue to watch it even if I have to watch it raw, just for the sexy guys =).
