And there´s probably a lot more. I´ll try a few more episodes but I´m not sure if this keeps me interested.

Also, omg @ this bird. Could have been from one of these shitty Barbie games...
Spoiler!
This really is pretty stupid. While yes the birds are similar to chocobos, you know what else they're similar to? BIG OSTRICHES AND/OR EMUS. "Guy is summoned into a fantasy realm"... Don't even pretend like that is an idea that is original to Zero no Tsukaima. It's not copying, it's using an age-old storyline in a new(ish) setting. And using the game-show format to do "war" is pretty original for an anime. Yes it pulls it's format from Takeshi's Castle, but come on. That show is over 20 years old, get over it. If it's okay to make reference to things that are RELEVANT in culture, then referencing a game show that hasn't been relevant for quite some time now should mean little-to-nothing.
