Saga of Tanya the Evil // First Impressions

If this show's goal was to give me a reason to not root for our big-headed loli "heroine", the I suppose it has done its job.

If this show’s goal was to give me a reason to not root for our big-headed loli “heroine”, the I suppose it has done its job.

A Studio NUT adaptation of the light novel by Carlo Zen and Shinobu Shinotsuki, Saga of Tanya the Evil is set in CE 1923. Among these soldiers of the Empire’s military, there is a girl in the higher ranks: Second Lieutenant Tanya Degurechaff, whose combat and strategic abilities in battle are unrivaled. However, she is only loyal to her Fatherhood and will eliminate anyone that stands between her and victory for the Fatherhood, even if it means sending off disobedient subordinates to their death.

Saga of Tanya the Evil is certainly living up to its name, because our protagonist is a very bad person, to say the least. I have a good amount of issues with this; Mainly because our protagonist wouldn’t be out of place as the villain. and I really think that is the case. Also the character designs: Everyone looks fairly normal, but Tanya has really big eyes and a head that’s too big for her skinny body, and her closest subordinate Viktoriya has this weird moeblob face. Maybe there is a reason explained later why Tanya is such a bloodthirsty psycho, but I doubt I’ll last long enough to care when we get there. Well, Saga of Tanya the Evil is most definitely not off to a great start, I tell you what.

Saga of Tanya the Evil is available to watch on Crunchyroll. An English dubbed version will also be available to watch on Funimation at a later date.
