It's weird, it's cool, it has an animation style different from everything I have ever seen,

I guess you haven't seen Mind Game and Kemonozume then

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

Strange. Not sure what to think about it. But intriguing enough for me to continue watching.

I didn't want to hurt you but you're pretty when you cry. I didn't really love you but I'm pretty when I lie.

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.

Seems like a pretty decent anime, so far. Injections give me the creeps, so I was sort of freaking out in those scenes.

Looks like it's going to be taking the Ghost Hound approach of throwing out random psychology/psychiatry trivia every episode. Insomnia/Generalized Anxiety Disorder/Placebo Effect are all pretty basic concepts. Hopefully they dive a little deeper in the later episodes.

Not sure what the 3 different versions of the psychiatrist are supposed to represent. Animal head mode, normal (ish) mode, and child mode - wonder if there's any reasoning to that. The main character also seems to have an animal head mode.

Boooooooooring. May attempt to watch the second ep if I have nothing else to do. Hell, I enjoyed Winter Sonata 0 more than this. Animation and art style is just annoying,

No not really but even I, who loves a good trippy series, was seriously lost through half of that. I can't say I'm a fan anyway but I can see why people like it.

I'll give it another episode but I think this is even a bit too out there for me.

yeah give it another episode, since the second one is less weird and easier to make sense of.

Or was that the other me?

... Anyway, great show!

This season sure gives rise of a lot of weird anime, weird art and talking of split personality this doctor seems to be made of three different people.

What the hell did I watched? And why I liked this one even I was bored as hell? Anyway, I think I will drop this series because I didn't enjoy it for some reason. Hopefully, I will probably watch it again after gg group releases the final episode.
