Really liked the OP and Gauche (Fukuyama jun <3). The episode as a whole wasn't that good and i find Lag annoying. Hoping it gets better :)

I've been excited to see this animated for some time now. Definitely enjoyed it, but it was pretty weird seeing everything in color. The mangaka tends to use black and white to his advantage.

the manga is great and the sotry is cool, but now that we have fuyama yun on this anime (at least while he is the main character) this is oin to be a master piece
so glad i read the one-shot of the shonenJ long ago
Being a fan is like having a penis. Its nice to be proud of it But don't pull it out in public and wave it in other's faces

Hmm, this reminded me of Shigofumi with the whole delivering letters thing. Lag bothers me for some reason and the whole episode was pretty boring. Dropped, unless I hear something fantastic about it later.

This show looks like it has potential but the first episode was quite boring. I'm gonna drop this and marathon it later if I hear it's good.

pretty good beginning, sad, and yet it set up everything, explaining the important parts, things we need to know off the bat

Lots of technical background explained already while lots of character background/memories are up for questioning. A great start, but I'm surprised the show is starting where Lag is yet a Letter Bee. It seems it would take them a while to get to where the OVA timeline started and they only have 13 episodes. I am very interested in how/when Lag meets Niche though, so hopefully the next episode finishes off on them at least having reach the Amberground.

The music and animation are great but not exactly when together. The OP looks good but I didn't think the song fit too well with the animation there. I like the ED song, not so much its animation.

I really like this first ep. I like the character designs. What really got me though was that they can actually make a show about the life and duty of a postal worker and still make it interesting ^^ but then again their not normal are they? Freakin Genius


Loving the dog/dingo thingy also ^_^

OMG. Lag’s voice actor can be SO MOEEE sometimes ♥
I melted when he said “Gaichuu?” for the first time.
Then I almost shed a tear when he screamed “Okasan”.

Ffff, and I’m falling in love for Gauche once again! <3

Wow, this was actually quite good especially compared to the other anime that have aired so far this season. This is the only one so far that I have some confidence in.

Anyway, onto the actual first episode... I liked it much better then the OVA. The story is only starting, yet the setting been set strongly. Still reminds me of a softer version of D. Gray man. The background animation was done well.

Op music was very nice, though the animation felt alittle off-sync. Ed was quite good aswell.

The episode seemed short... Only 21 mins?

Same. Like it than the OVA.
Although that OVA also made me shed a tear. x'3
And YES! It reminds me of a light version of D.Gray-man as well.
And it doesn't help that Allen and Lag (which were main chars of their respective series) have the same white hair. :'p

I'm loving the OP...and that ED was fine, might take a while to like it though. :'o
I love colors and the animation's beautiful. :'o
Srsly, Studio Pierrot? They sure know how to satisfy an audience. :'p

Why yes. -spazzes as well-

Whee~ FIRST EPISODE, and I get my dose of FukuJun. I'm so happy. TTwTT
Can't wait for the next episode! >w<

And glad I watched the OVA awhile ago...lawl
I get my doses of FukuJun there...and on another series, and now on this one too. ^w^ Yey~
Sad he doesn't have that much series this season. :'< I'm gonna be so lonely. Lawl
I wonder when the OP single would be out... x'3

Anyways...my highest scored first episode -so far- for this season. ='D
5/5. I'm prolly mainly just being biased since FukuJun's in it...xD lawl; I'm tired of hearing Koshimizu Ami's voice... D: meeh...lawl

Compared to that excellent OVA this was pretty boring. Mainly because the contents of this first episode (and probably the next one) are already known due to the OVA. It was certainly not bad at all, but I am not sure if I have the patience to wait until the good part is starting.

I just watched the OVA then the first episode and thought they complemented each other nicely. All stories don't have to start in chronological order. I'm really loving the artwork and the color schemes, the music does a really good job of setting a mood. Studio Pierrot seems to have another good series on their hands. However what's with the CGI Bugs? The fight scenes really pull me out of this story, I just can't figure out why they chose to use 3D renditions when their 2D artwork/animation is really high quality. I'm gonna keep following this one though, I got a feeling this story has a little humanity in it.

I liked it. At least they seem to have all the exposition out of the way with the first episode, so the next ones can delve into the story. If this series is anything like the OVA or better, I'm gonna be loving it.

I do like the art but the episode was rather boring. Despite that I'll surely watch the episode next week. It just might get more interesting as it progresses. Too bad its only 13 episodes long.

Hmm.. so, the OVA that came out last year got me pretty hyped up for this one. I thought it was really good.
Let's see what this show holds. It does seem to hold some potential anyway.

So then, first episode, not much that was really interesting, except for when Gauche shot that ... Gaischuu : p
And then when Lag unintentionally releases a huge burst of .. uuh.. stuff from the gun xD

Anyway, I have high hopes for this one : )
Quite ok OP and the ED was pretty good too : p
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

Yea, this is def the best of fall so far. I loved that episode, way better than the OVA imo. But I've read some of the manga, and I like Gauche, so it was awesome to see the beginning animated. The art and colors are beautiful, and the music is nice as well. This is a definite watch this season, but why only 13 eps?? I hope there's more seasons...Urahara Out!!

Nice art. Nice music.
This season seems to have lots of 3DCGs look-a-like stuff. Not nice imo. Sad to think if all anime turns into 3D in the future :(

I was too bored to keep paying attention. This whole ep could have easily been condensed into 5 minutes and lost nothing.

exactly... not very entertaining episode.

So far a great adaption, i'm glad they got the seiyuus from the OVA to return, Jun makes a good Gauche.

My only complaint is that the band for the opening doesn't have voice differentiation in tone/tempo.

It was pretty interesting. I watched the OVA and I had no idea how the anime would be. I thought it was going to be boring. But this episode kept me in the story and, well, some parts were so emotional, but I still liked it.
Can't wait for next week (:

I think the OVA was only a nice teaser for what is to come. The anime has so far lived up to the hopes I gained from it, and I LOVE the characters... then again, it is only the first episode.

the episode actually catch the essence of the manga better than the ova there is no mistake about that.though considering the 1st chapter was 125 pages they should at least made this episode a 40 min entry to the story. they cut it short. which sucks since they think this as a 13 ep. anime. this manga and anime has promise considering the other fall premiers (blacksmith and kampfher was annoying ). this might be the hit of the fall with fairy tail. all in all i enjoyed the premise of the anime OP and ED was well composed. we just have to w8 the rest of the cast and i will hope they expand the show rt at least give it other seasons.
