A pretty good adaptation

I'm someone who has read the LNs. The anime covers vol 1-4 as well as 2 short stories from vol 10.

-The eng dub voices are perfect for each character. Though there are some instances of flat acting that is kind of disappointing. The language is also much stronger than I thought it would be.

-The line translation is great. There is future plot beyond the anime that revolves around what was said early on. So I'm happy to report that no bridges where burned with poor translations.

-I don't like the inconsistent use of honorifics like swapping between "senpai" and "Mr or Ms." There's no honorific use in the LN so it's annoying hearing Haru refer to Kuroyukihime as senpai.

-Pacing is too rushed. A lot of particular details are glossed over, some more important than others. Like the serious nature of being cracked in the real. The anime lacks a sense of urgency that the LNs have.

Overall it's a good adaptation. I prefer the LNs, but I'd definitely watch a season 2 if made.
