It was my frontrunner for AOTS based on the fantastic prequel OVA, but it's been mildly disappointing so far.

She's de-facto an asylum case among real humans so it's not like she had it easy all the time.
Once the whole shtick with Einsworth starts, she does get everything served on a silver platter.

There's no ifs or buts about the way that is handled. Mary Sues don't necessarily mean bad stories. Kamina is as big a Mary Sue as they come and people still like him. Same for Lelouch.
Mary Sue protags are more or less the staple of shounen and shoujo IPs.

Half of that "everything served on a silver platter" is just the natural consequence or her being the apprentice of a well known wizard. Of course she is going to be protected, taught magic, and put in contact with powerful people. It would be weirder if she wasn´t.

I feel like it's squandering its potential with pacing issues and some of the execution has fallen flat for me. Like Chise flying with the dragon was a nice idea but I don't think they pulled off what they wanted with that scene. Maybe they should either spend more time on each of these ideas, or accept that they can't flesh them out properly in one episode? Not sure. But I expected more character development or world building halfway through the season.

The comfy farmhouse and other rural settings really appeal to me though, and the characters aren't bad - they are just crying out for need of development.

The presentation of a codependent relationship as healthy is also weird, maybe Elias is supposed to be helping Chise to grow into a whole person - but as it stands now he hasn't been discouraging her from entirely attaching her self-worth to their relationship.

I don't feel like it's been implied it's healthy. In fact, I don't think it's been addressed too much in the anime. In the manga there's more stuff going on down the line. Elias doesn't really understand human emotion, so he wouldn't know that Chise's dependence on him is something to discourage. At the end of the day, Chise's growth as a person is hardly due to Elia's doing. He has influence, naturally, but it's other people and Chise herself that push her to seek a relationship where they're both more or less equal.

Read Vol. 1 the manga because it was reccomended to me because I liked Silul a Run. Was really disappointed in--frankly--how anime it was. I think people just make the comparison because of the physical similarity between the characters.

Did I drop it too early?
