Should You Watch: If you enjoyed DanMachi and want alternative views to key events, probably.
General Comments: So, this is a spin-off of DanMachi, focusing on Ais, the Sword Princess of the Loki Familia who we all know Bell fawned over in the main series. We see more on her familia and their adventures and how they intersect with Bell’s. The characters were fun and interesting, though the my personal favorite was Riveria. It was an entertaining plot and had decent action, but the depth of the plot seemed lacking. It’s strange that the main series had more ecchi to it than this and probably shouldn’t have been taken seriously, but it’s actually much deeper, more developed and more enjoyable than this spin-off was. It was nice to see Ais’ view for a change in things, but because her character isn’t very expressive as it is, I had a harder time keeping attention. Needless to say, although it was a nice addition to the series and I don’t regret watching it, I prefer DanMachi more. However, based on the ending, it seems likely we will be getting more of it as well as more DanMachi in the future, which is fine with me.
