At first I planned on reviewing the show as a whole but after seeing it I figured it would be best to briefly give my thoughts on the show and briefly discuss the important part and move on to the next review.
The show itself is a solid action-adventure JRPG inspired romp with a main plot that is not stellar but decent enough to get the interested to follow along till the end. The female members of the Loki Familia, including Loki herself, are all amusing in their own right but honestly do not require me to go into great detail on really. I liked the fraternal twins though it took a few episodes before remembering which one is Tione and Tiona. Loki herself was a cute “hunter” and clever leader. Master Riveria was a cool senpai.
As far as where in the DanMachi timeline this takes place in it is around the same time as the main series. Expect to see Ais’ group run into members of Bell’s group several times throughout the show. Viewers who saw the first one will be able to point out what happened before the two groups run into each other each time their meetings occur.
The reason I do not feel like going too deeply into the show is because of all the “female-centered spinoffs/prequels” of other shows like Hidan no Aria AA, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun or Hina Logi to name a few Sword Oratoria was the one I enjoyed the least despite my fondness for Lefiya and her noble quest to become a super mage and especially to get Ais to notice her as a potential romantic partner. That or go with “Option B” introduced later on. Her quest is the best part of the show to be honest but that is just me. I am not going to lie. My summary for this show is “If the viewer liked the first DanMachi but preferred Ais’ group as the leads instead of Bell’s and also featuring a lesbian dueteragonist in Lefiya then give Sword Oratoria a go“. Sorry to disappoint the peeps who really wanted me to go into detail on whether I liked this show or not. I thought it was average at best and that is all I have to say.
