Rita was a fucking terrible character. Her entire spiel consisted of whining about Blastia and being disproportionately violent towards other people.
Yeah, I never got the Rita love... I liked some of her "sass"
(e.x.; "blah blah blah" is an awesome spell chant if I've ever heard one), but I think I'm tired of the idea of "mad [15 yrs old] geniuses!!!".
I thought Raven could have been handled better as well. He was good, but could have been milked for a few chuckles more (loved the skit that shows his reaction to Judith in a bathing suit).
I liked Estelle and Karol a lot more than I thought I would on the other hand. Estelle was sweet, earnest, and I liked that "book smart" aspect (which was made a "quirk" when her street-smarts were extremely lacking). Karol was just hilarious, that kind of scared act was charming because he was really bright to make up for it; but he also tried really hard. He's an easy target to tease, and I love the fact that the cast actually did tease him (c'mon, the girly outfit? amazing!).
The Biggest flaw?
Anyone remember what the point of Duke or the Adaphagos was?
Yeah... me neither.
Flaming: I liked Eternia's bland cast myself. I actually thought Meredy was sweet, and I loved Reid for being lazy. And Max for his trademark line.
PS: Arche fucks like a tiger.
