Figured I'd make a thread for everyone to post their opinions of the episodes when they air. Even if primary discussion for the anime is taken elsewhere, it still feels wrong not to have a dedicated thread for the currently airing anime here on Helma.
At the very least, this thread can be used as a dumping ground for screencaps.

Not sure what happened with the title in the OP. Oh well.
That aside, how did everyone feel about episode one? I gotta admit, I really enjoyed it, even though I wasn't too crazy about the newly introduced witches prior to viewing. I loved how they showed the witches' training and the sisters were enjoyable to watch even if Hikari is somewhat generic.
The 3DCG is still cringey to see, though. Based off of this ep it seems for the action scenes they're going to go full 3D, or at least close to it. Hopefully they still traditionally animate some parts.
All in all, I'm satisfied thus far. Can't wait to see the 502nd soon.

Sasebo was very pretty. Shame we probably won't see much of it from now on.

Hikari's father is actually alive in this one, so at the very least she's got that going for her.

It was enjoyable episode all in all. If you love witches you just love them on screen. If I were to be more critical cynical like I'm with movies and other media then the episode and the season doesn't look that 'promising' with how new characters are hogging time, etc. complaints.
Also the cgi definitely is worse off than in previous installments save for S1 with how it's done and used. It's especially bad in the OP, which shouldn't be a thing.
But despite all that small rant, love is love.

I also hope that the amazing backgrounds and such aren't just pilot episode eye candy. They were really nice in the episode and hopefully remain consistent at least.

Who is Misumi Miya anyway?
Total original?

Wooooh amazing!!! 1937 Fusou Kaijihen!!! and 501!!! Hikari really not was an "Yoshika 2.0" she are realy cute(>.<)
>> No. 11645 ID: 6210a524
She definitely hasn't appeared anywhere before, making her anime original. Now whether she has archetype or not remains a question.
>> No. 11646 ID: cfaf90af
I enjoyed it though it was mostly what I expected in terms of setup. I love that it was set in a witch academy. Hikari is a total cutie, I like her motivation. I hope they were hinting at a more overarching plot at the end. Would be a nice change from the episodic SW.

Is it next Wednesday yet?

Shameless Plug:
Group watch at http://swqu.net/ on Friday, at 8PM CST. Gonna try and do this every week. Doing an episode-by-episode compare with the original, as in airing S1 ep 1 and BW ep 1 side by side.

Brave Witches, so far, feels much more like it has an idea of what it wants to be. It's more focused, and has introduced a main character that's both less grating and has hinted at a proper character arc. It's still a little silly, but much less than the absurdity the original had. I'm...actually looking forward to watching more.
>> No. 11649 ID: b4b3efdb
I have a tiny reservation on the CG part but it's a very good first episode. I'm sure Takami got tons of new admirers after that scar scene.
>> No. 11651 ID: c32bb4ef
Do you plan to do streams at a time that's a bit friendlier to Europe? Would like to pop in but that's 3am local time here in Karlsland.
>> No. 11653 ID: 6210a524
In that regard I've been trying to have more European friendly times given I'm one myself, and have one around comfortable time for us, which is why if you're interested, every Wednesday on 21:00 UTC+0 (13:00 PST) I'll be streaming the new episode.
Still unsure if I should hold on Saturday night as well since it's fun to watch it multiple times too but there hasn't been much demand for that so I'll refrain from that.
>> No. 11660 ID: c32bb4ef
Link? I would much rather prefer a day later in the week since I prefer to watch it by myself first.
>> No. 11663 ID: 6210a524
http://cytu.be/r/helmarathon is the stream place every week. http://helma.us/sw/res/11467.html
Hmm, well I understand that, maybe I should do it day later then. Think I'll just make a poll later today or tomorrow and see then the outcome.

Takami seems alright I guess. Hikari's all over the place to me. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. I'm never one to hard judge dubs without actually listening to them. Especially since I did watch SW S1 + 2 dubbed entirely once. Will give the rest of the 502nd a listen too when more comes out I guess.
