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.

Make sure you don't go through a mental breakdown... I warn you V(OVO)V
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 )
it was weird but then again i love weird stuff^^ definitely kept me entertained but also annoyed me at some points...not sure yet if i'm gonna luv this show or will it start to annoy me too much after few eps..but now i kinda want to see the next ep^^
Haylias said: 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.
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)
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
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.
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.
