    He just realized that the killing beasts are what humans turned into, which is why they spread so fast. Well, the actual truth (as well as what Leprachauns really are) is more complex, but that's the gist of it for now. Episode 10 is an inflection point, the calm before the storm and everything goes to shit.

    Basic overall plot summary is

    [+] Spoiler


    They're all fucked. The leprachauns are fragments of Elq's soul, Elq being an ascended human known as a "visitor" who arrived on that planet aeons ago, along with other visitors. Elq was killed by the MC's love interest shortly after the MC got petrified. Half of her soul remains in her body while the other half is divided among the leprechauns. Elq and the other visitors were the ones who originally terraformed the planet via magic, and now the planet is simply reverting back to its original state. This includes the humans and beastmen, who were transformed into humans and beastmen through the same magic from their original forms as the horrors that we see lurking on the surface. In due time, the magic used to terraform the planet will wear off completely, and it will revert back to being a virtually lifeless dustball inhabited only by the original 17 beasts and other, lesser, non-sentient creatures. There is no way to stop this process, and the MC's old friend knows this.

    The funny part was that a post I made on MAL got crossposted by someone else on Reddit for a summary of what Altair is (before I read the spoilers) and became the top comment:

    "Another user on MAL explained how Setsuna created Altair in a very concise way, so I thought I'd share it (https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topic...97#msg51148652).
    It seems that shortly thereafter, Setsuna Shimazaki published Altair: World Etude as a rhetorical "are you not entertained?" to her critics, incorporating all the features that her "haters" thought such a character should have--chuuni tendencies, ridiculous powers, etc. Judging by her previous artwork, which incorporated lots of bright colors and peaceful settings, Altair was intended to be nothing less than the avatar of Setsuna's revenge; a final "fuck you" to the world which, she felt, had rejected her--a lasting proof of her existence." "

    The best response to my post that got crossposted was "holy shit, that actually makes sense."
    Holy crap... that mal reply and possible theory is epic, never mess with the nerdy artist girl with suicidal tendencies XDD

    And yeah, lots of shows will be overshadowed by Fate but as long as the fanbase exists then there's still going to be much to talk about them.

    @firemagnet Is there an explanation for why just the humans reverted first beyond "because we need to drive the plot".

    Altair does it too. And if you read the episode 12 spoilers you'll find out more about it.

    [+] Spoiler

    because she's a secondary creation (a re-creation of a creation) she has absolutely no power limiter whatsoever. She's functionally a living god, but the laws of the world prevent her from completely erasing it.


    The difference with Magane is that Magane is a diabolus ex machina, since her power requires that her opponents walk straight into the traps she sets for the sake of the plot. If anyone clams up or simply refuses to deny what she's saying, then her power doesn't work. She's trying to remove that particular limiter, of course.

    Well then, the time has come... Spring Season 2017 is about to end so let's have a wrap up! I'll try to focus in new titles instead of sequels so let's see how it goes.

    -Favorite anime of the season:
    Sukasuka, Sakura Quest, Re:Creators.
    -Honorable Mention: Grimoire of Zero, Atom: The beginning.
    -Worst anime of the season: Sin Nanatsu no Taizai.

    -Best Artstyle: Sakura Quest, Re:Creators, Atom: The beginning, Sukasuka, Danmachi Sword Oratoria.
    -Worst Arstyle: Sin Nanatsu no Taizai, Clockwork Planet, Rokudenashi Majutsu.
    -Best animation: Sakura Quest, Re:Creators, SNK S2, Boku no Hero S2, Eromanga-sensei.
    -Worst animation: Sin Nanatsu no Taizai, Clockwork Planet.

    -Best opening theme: Re:Creators, Boku no Hero S2, Atom: The beginning.
    -Worst opening theme: Sin Nanatsu no Taizai, Clockwork Planet, Danmachi Sword Oratoria.
    -Best ending theme: Re:Creators, Boku no Hero S2, Sukasuka.
    -Worst ending theme: N/A. (I was gonna put Sin Nanatsu no Taizai here but I honestly like the ending, it's like almost an 80's rock song)
    -Best OST: Granblue Fantasy, Re:Creators, Boku no Hero S2, Sukasuka, Sekaisuru Kado.
    -Worst OST: Sin Nanatsu no Taizai, Clockwork Planet.

    (The spot here is reserved for best male voice actor, acress and all that but I'm honestly... not that good in that area, so I'll leave this blank but feel free to give your impressions.)

    -Best male character: Wilhelm (or whatever you spell it) from Sukasuka, Takashi from Re:Creators, Deku from My Hero Academia S2.
    -Worst male character: The MC from Clockwork Planet.
    -Best Female character: Mamika from Re:Creators, Ctholly and Nyglato from Sukasuka, Yoshino from Sakura Quest.
    -Worst Female character: All the female cast from Sin Nanatsu no Taizai.
    -Best couple: Wilhelm and Ctholly from Sukasuka, Takashi and Selesia from Re:Creators, Zero and Mercenary from Grimoire of Zero.

    -Surprise of the season:

    -Re:Creators: It blew my mind honestly, such a good show and I cannot stop praising it, sure it has it's flaws like every other anime but it makes up with good characters and a decent pace in terms of development and stuff. The OST is also fantastic and the characters are charming enough to keep you hooked, it also has a very unique story that I think few animes dared to explore, which makes it even better.

    -Sakura Quest: I love PA Works animes (except one that should never be named again) and honestly Sakura Quest turned out to be pretty good, what I love the most about the show is the development that the MC Yoshino is going throught right now, she's really starting to enjoy her job and doing her best for the sake of the town... you really have to admire that change of attitude and her guts.

    -Atom: The Beginning: I think this is the underrated show of the season... it's really well done, it manages to merge the new style of the current animation with the old styles from the Tezuka era, I also love the fact that it gives us a background of how life was before the birth of Astro Boy (Atom) and it makes you wonder how things ended up like that in the future... cuz yeah, Atom's story is pretty sad considering how he was created and what his original father is doing... I'm wondering if this "prequel" will give us a new anime for Atom, perhaps a remake or an entirely new story, only time will tell.

    -Sukasuka: I thought that this was gonna be another mediocre harem show with mahou shoujos... oh how wrong I was, I got so hooked to this show that I downloaded all the LN already... to think that the suffering it's just starting breaks my heart even further, it's a really powerful story and very well done to be honest. I'm not sure if I should read Sukamoka though (the sequel), considering many people say that Sukasuka is better, but I'm curious nonetheless so I'll dive into it when I have the time.

    -Disappoinment of the season:

    -Sin Nanatsu no Taizai: I'm honestly a fan of ecchi shows, I love them as long as the're funny and have a decent story... people were saying that this anime was gonna be a AAA ecchi show but it turned out to be mediocre at best... a mere production just to promote the PVC figures and such... oh well, I didn't wasted much of my time with it.

    -Sekaisuru Kado: Ugh... it was hard to put this title here but... to be honest I like the show and I still do but I must be frank about it, I honestly have no idea why this show kept going from CGI to tradional animation between characters, that was just nuts and distracting. Also the last couple of episodes were... kinda lame I guess? but I'm still gonna keep watching it till the end.

    -Clockwork Planet: I was hyped for this show to be honest, I mean it's a story made by the same author of No Game No Life but damn son... NGNL it's miles better than this crap, the animation was pretty potato and the story extremely convoluted... it started good but it flopped hard after the first half. The Only reason I ketp watching it was because it reminded me of Resonance of Fate, a pretty good yet underrated JRPG.


    Overall thoughts of the season: The majority of the big hitters of this season were pretty much sequels, I have to say that Re:Creators and Sukasuka carried this season pretty hard considering all the titles... sure there were good shows in it but nothing spectacular in the end... only because of those two shows I'll give this season a 7/10.
