Well, at least it wasn't boring. I think this is the weirdest anime I've seen.

I think I liked it

Wow. This was the show I anticipated the most this season. I don't know how I feel. It's so different and defied every expectation I had, so I can only go with it and see what happens. I can't say I loved or hated it since I don't have any way to process or judge what I saw. For that reason though, I think I do like it. Very challenging. I can't wait for next week.

This may also be the first show I decide to rewatch later on during the week.

This is like taking hallucinogen. Trippy but addictive.

The first episode was pretty funny and disturbing at the same time.

Keep on!

Holy crap... and I thought Bakemonogatari was crazy. This is insane. A few times, I missed the subtitles because I was too busy looking at all the crazy stuff that was going on with the animation. I'll keep watching.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Interesting and exhilarating by far. It's certainly clever both with the writing and the visual inventiveness (reminds me of Mind Game). I'm really looking forward to the next episode.

For some reason I'm fond of the psychiatrist's alter ego (The kid with yellow hair.).

And I like the ending.

First, I've seen the synopsys and the picture of the little blond boy inside the bear and tought "wow, this has a LARGE probability of being something really good."
Then I was waiting for subtitles to appear and saw a screenshot of the nurse and tought "wow, how nice, they mix animation with IRL ppl and it's sooo colorful, it really must be something good".
Now I've just watched and I love it. :D

Seriously, this is probably the most interesting thing I have watched in a long time. It's weird, it's cool, it has an animation style different from everything I have ever seen, it make me feel like I've taken some halucynogen and went to see some psychiatrical series. Not to mention all the serious psychiatric stuff involved, wich interests me a lot.
Well, can't wait for the next episode... think I'm gonna rewatch this one.

(Ps: The opening song is so-damn-catchy, I keep going back and listening to it all over and over again ;O )

Have seen only Kemonozume... both are "weird", but they're tottaly different imo... only having the "distorted/abstract drawings" in common.

Man, this was damn awesome. It's been some time since an anime I got to watch while it's airing had a so entertaining first episode. I hope it keeps it up.

Also, kiss kiss kiss

Honestly, to me, it came across as trying a bit to hard to be different. That is just my opinion though.


I feel the same. Like it was trying to be random for the sake of being, well... random. I predict lots of lame analysis trying to make this seem deep. Oh well, it's just the first episode. But I can't say I really... enjoyed it.

At first I wasn't convinced, but at the end it grew a bit on me. It's still very strange, but I think I'll keep on watching just to see where it goes.

I reminded me a bit of Paprika which is the only thing I've watched in the past I can compare it to.

Also, my mind made this kind of comparison in the middle of the therapy session:

Kunchu Buranko = Alice in Wonderland + LSD + Japan.

Fabulous. The most intriguing anime of this fall so far... @_@

I really really really like the style. Seriously, just amazingly expressed well. Though, I'm not too sure about story. Weird, Colourful. That nurse is... (lol) half animated half real isn't it?... I've never ever seen that kind of thing before...

OP is... eh it's ringing me for like... 2 days around my ears... xD

I'm, definitely watching it. Hell, it is probably the only interesting thing I want to watch this fall. (but still waiting for SZS OVA <3)

What a weird show, no really. It's a psychiatric lesson and Anime put into one. Interesting enough though, especially with that strange art work.

ODD, VERY ODD. xD
The whole time, I was wondering "This voice is so familiar" and around at the time Yamashita gets to Irabu-sensei's room, I was so sure. "It's Morimori!" and I had to laugh. xD
Also...this is gonna be moar hilarious since they use the faces of their voice actors. xD
First was Morimori, so next episode is Kusuriuri's voice actor, Sakurai-san! xD
I can't wait.
This series is ODD in a good way and it made me smile and laugh heartily the whole time I watched it. x'3 hehe

No, it's too colorful, isn't a bad thing though. I liked it. It's nice to watch some thing screwed up every once in a while. It's really artistic as well.

Haha. Yeah. Really colourful, far from white... :P

But I can see why people I know around are dropping this anime even before OP comes out. For some of them, it can be little too wierd to watch.

Nevertheless, I liked it.

Whaaaaaaaaa......

I feel like I just watched an animated version of Dr. Phil. I'll watch the next ep, since one of the majors I was considering was Psychology, but most of the stuff in this ep I already learned way back in high school.

wow!

That was the best first episode that I watched since Kaiba--but I hope this one won't go downhill like Kaiba did in the second half of the series.

As for the quirky art style and bizarre directing, I didn't expect any less from the team behind Mononoke. Even if the viewer tuned out all the dialogues and plot details, the creative use of animation and real-life imagery makes watching this an utter enjoyment in itself.

Can't wait for the subs of Ep2 to come out!

Trippy anime is trippy. I hate green with a passion and this episode had a ton of it, that was the only thing I disliked about this ep, everything else was wonderful.
