Too few episodes to flesh out the character without focusing the narrative on her.
Ashi basically being Poochy.
Her ending basically being the TTGL ending.
Because of her the season basically goes off a cliff after the third episode.
Aside from Ashi:
Too few episodes for an actual narrative.
You see the Scotsman twice (Doesn't even say Magic Runes, says Celtic Magic for some reason).
Sword retrieval is significantly better in the comics.
Fanservice feels cheap.
Back to the past ending isn't exactly great.
Depressed opening never changed.
